Seven years between them, Kirby and Riley Gordan, nurtured by their pastor father and loving mother, experienced almost ideal childhoods growing up in the Boston area. Then a season of misfortune culminated in the worse of all possible tragedies - the death of their beloved parents.
Four years have passed. Kirby, having failed at marriage and pro-baseball, is now a Florida police detective. He finds himself in little Adairsville, Georgia along with Riley, his law school bound sister. They are there to settle their uncle's massive estate. It is soon apparent that Uncle James's death was no accident. But the worst of it is their names at the top of the suspect list. The siblings are embraced by spunky caretakers, Amos and Carol, whose love, wit, faith, and plain ole horse-sense bolster efforts to solve the murder and put Kirby's life back on track.
After reviewing Solid Ground, Terri Gillespie, award winning author of "The Hair Marven Series" commented, "The quaint town of Adairsville, Georgia is filled with quirky folks, history, beautiful scenery, sweet tea, and murder."
Adairsville resident, Dr. Lena Smith, responded to the story with, "This mystery is masterfully written and captures the essence of characters who are both believable and honorable, despite their imperfections... I finished it in one sitting."
