The books Southern indie booksellers are recommending to readers everywhere!

Decent People by De’Shawn Charles Winslow

The shooting deaths of 2 sisters and their brother, prominent members of the African-American community, set tongues wagging in West Mills, NC. Except for those holding their voice over secrets. Told from alternating perspectives, the mystery unfolds amid lives threatened by the racism and homophobia of the 1960s and 1970s. This is a great read on so many levels, can’t wait to hand sell this one.
