New Miss Dimple mystery from Fort Mill author

In "Miss Dimple Rallies to the Cause," a new cozy mystery by Fort Mill author Mignon Ballard, we find first-grade teacher Miss Dimple Kilpatrick once again turning amateur sleuth in her small town of Elderberry, Ga. Set in 1943, this is Ballard's second Miss Dimple mystery, following last year's "Miss Dimple Disappears."

Ballard will sign copies 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at Park Road Books, 4139 Park Road. She'll also sign copies 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Dec. 10,
at Crossings on Main, 102 Academy St. in Fort Mill, and 2-3:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10, at the BooKnack, 742 Anderson Road in Rock Hill.

Publishers Weekly calls Ballard's second Miss Dimple mystery "full of Southern charm."
