Lily Barlow: The Mystery of Jane Dough

by Doward Wilson

Lily Barlow’s heroine is Janet Evanovich’s character, Stephanie Plum. Unfortunately, she lives in boring Marshall, Virginia. She is between semesters at college, and she is at home to find a manager for her family’s bakery, which has closed following her father’s heart attack. She can’t wait to get back to school, but business comes first. No bakery, no tuition!
