Travels Through a Life

Sabine Parish Sheriff Jack Blake was concerned after his conversation with Darcey Anderson. Darcey was leery of a Mr. Candy and his daughter, Lottie. They seemed too good. Too sweet. Especially with Darcey’s daughter, Kelli.

The family about whom Darcey expressed concern sounded much like that being sought by California detective Nancy Patrick. The sheriff called Nancy and, within days, New Orleans cop Jordan Baron and Nancy had served out of state warrants on the man calling himself Candy and his daughter. They were both now in jail awaiting final judicial approval of their extradition.

Meanwhile, Nancy and Jordan joined Darcey, her mother, Betty, Trent Marshall’s surrogate mother, Ivy, and Kelli, Trent and Darcey’s young daughter, for corn chowder.
