About the Book:

In 1932, the author’s Uncle Weldon, who was 10 years-old at the time, lived in Hot Coffee, Mississippi. According to the local joke, the town was so small that the “Welcome” sign and the “Ya’ll Come Back” sign were nailed on opposite sides of the same post. This is a story about that town as related to the author by his Uncle Weldon long after he was grown and living in Texas. This is both a love story and a murder mystery that unfolds over a period of seven days in July, 1932, that Uncle Weldon insisted was the most memorable week of his life. Within the pages of this book, the reader will discover why. During this time, Uncle Weldon breaks his nose for the third time, falls in love with a married woman, hears all about the tragic murder of a local colored child, and has a ringside view of a World Championship wrestling match that comes to town. Settle back in your favorite easy chair with a glass of sweet tea and enjoy Jerry Blacklaw’s first novel set almost a century ago in Hot Coffee, Mississippi.
