Summary
For Charlie Carr, it's a trying time in Elderberry, Georgia--and not just because of the war. Though her head dictates loyalty to handsome corpsman Hugh Brumlow, whenever she thinks of her best friend's beau, her heart does the Jersey Bounce. And now, the entire town of Elderberry is in a tizzy. One frosty November morning, Charlie and her fellow teachers are miffed with the school custodian "Christmas" Malone. The furnace hasn't been stoked and he hasn't emptied the wastebaskets. When he's found dead in a broom closet, it seems a heart attack may be to blame. But when beloved schoolmistress Miss Dimple Kilpatrick--who is as dependable as gravity--disappears, Charlie and her friend Annie Gardner begin to do some sleuthing on their own, and find that there is no shortage of suspects.--from p.[4] book cover

Summary
It's 1942, and the residents of the small town of Elderberry, Georgia, have been rattled down to their worn, rationed shoes. For young teacher Charlie Carr, life and love aren't going exactly as planned--her head dictates loyalty to the handsome corpsman, Hugh, but whenever she thinks of her best friend's beau, Will, her heart does the Jersey Bounce. Charlie is doubly troubled by the disappearance of beloved schoolmistress Miss Dimple Kilpatrick one frosty November morning just before Thanksgiving. Miss Dimple, who has taught the town's first graders--including Charlie--for almost forty years, would never just skip town in the middle of the school year, and Charlie and her best friend, Annie, are determined to prove it
