This is highly recommended since they love it and it's coming from two very picky teenage girls. If you have teenage girls or been around them, you know how picky they can be.
Here is what Connie Knight has to say about "Cemetery Whites":
Why Does a Mystery Story Start in a Cemetery?
"Cemetery Whites, my first cozy mystery novel, begins in a family graveyard out in the country. History professor Thomas Harrison, a black man, lies dead in a patch of white irises in the Hargrove Family Cemetery in DeWitt County, Texas. He lies close to a grave from 1875, where it’s rumored a second body was secretly buried under the man whose name is on the tombstone. Heroine Caroline Hargrove Hamilton and her cousin Janet, who have come to the cemetery to visit family graves, find the body and call the police, starting the investigation of homicide.
What was the professor from San Antonio looking for? Why was there a shovel in his hand? Caroline and Janet become amateur detectives, and the cemetery holds the solution to the murder mysteries—one from 1875, and one from today.
Those are the reasons the novel begins in the cemetery, and the climax occurs there, too. Another reason has to do with my perception of cemeteries—why I would want to create characters interested in them. I don’t see them as ghoulish homes for vampires and ghosts. I perceive them as peaceful final homes for people we knew and loved, places to visit and pray for their souls, places where we can find spiritual communication between the living and the dead.
They’re also a source of family history. Names and dates on tombstones contribute to genealogy. Some old cemeteries have been neglected or abandoned, and they might be hard to find. Others are still in use and well-kept, even as private family cemeteries. Sometimes historic societies take on the project of restoring a crumbling old graveyard. One of these exists in my book as well as the well-kept Hargrove Family Cemetery and the church cemetery in San Antonio where Professor Harrison is buried. Also, there’s the huge 103-acre National Historic Cemetery in San Antonio, which Caroline and Janet visited and found another clue.
In a murder mystery, funerals are often mentioned, even if not lengthily portrayed. In Cemetery Whites, I now have to admit, cemeteries and funerals are more prominent than I previously thought. However, there are other elements of life portrayed in my book: a large family, new friends for Caroline, Janet’s children to look after, an engaged couple, and a blossoming romance.
Birth, marriage, death. Those are the dates on a tombstone, and all of these things occur somewhere in my book."

The costume comes with everything, except the boots and scrunchie she is wearing on her wrist and her necklace.
The fishnet gloves are included, the bandana on her head, the dress and leggings.
The cute skull has a bow that is black.
There is a bow that ties on the left side of the chest that is stripped and is black and white to match the skull.
offers some of the neatest and most unique costumes that are available.
We thought about adding a Masquerade mask to this to set it off.
However to show that it is neat and unique alone and without it, we decided to hold off on that part.
We are going to get Eclipse Sun Sleeves to where she can wear this for Halloween.
She absolutely loves the costume and it does look great on her.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

This is a wonderful kids book of mystery and even teaches them a lesson on aiming high for their goals.
There has been a jewelry robbery. The investigator is aimed to get his man. He's the best there is and he's not slowing down.
Brian is a teenager that is aiming high and does well in everything that he does. His parents are encouraging and give him the best advice there is. Never slowing down and aiming high, he enters a rap contest and wrote the song himself with the approval of his parents on the lyrics.
Josh, Brian's friend, is also aiming high and wants to be a heart surgeon. They have a camping trip planned and headed to stay in a cabin.
Thomas, the bully, is being framed. He's on the run. Having a juvenile record, he's scared that he'll be blamed for the crime.
I cannot tell any more or it will ruin the idea of you or someone else reading the book. I will say that I really enjoyed this. It is well written and put together very well.
On a scale of 1-5, I have to give this a 5!
Thank you Mrs. Dail for contacting for the review. Great book!!!
