Three Times Lucky

A hilarious Southern debut with the kind of characters you meet once in a lifetime

Rising sixth grader Miss Moses LoBeau lives in the small town of Tupelo Landing, NC, where everyone’s business is fair game and no secret is sacred. She washed ashore in a hurricane eleven years ago, and she’s been making waves ever since. Although Mo hopes someday to find her “upstream mother,” she’s found a home with the Colonel–a caf owner with a forgotten past of his own–and Miss Lana, the fabulous caf hostess. She will protect those she loves with every bit of her strong will and tough attitude. So when a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known.

Full of wisdom, humor, and grit, this timeless yarn will melt the heart of even the sternest Yankee. Genre: Children’s Fiction

Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage

Miss Moses LoBeau, rising sixth grader, has plans for the summer.

To hang out with her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III and his dog, Queen Elizabeth II. To help out in the eccentric café run by the Colonel and Miss Lana, who took her in 11 years ago when a hurricane washed Mo into town. To continue her lifelong search for her Upstream Mother. And to research her own life story – which so far is one big fat mystery.

Mo’s summer looks sweet. Until Detective Joe Starr shows up asking too many questions. And cranky old Mr. Jesse turns up dead. And Dale becomes the chief suspect in tiny Tupelo Landing’s first murder.
