When her grandfather dies mysteriously, Trinity Goode heads home to the family farm and life in small-town Ohio. Her neighbors in Himmel don't think that a New York City artist with a decidedly Goth style will stick around for long - but the country-girl-at heart has other plans.
Country life suits the church-going, quilt-making, pie-baking girl dressed in black just fine, but suspicions about her beloved grandfather's death are growing faster than the corn crop and it's clear that someone has spent nearly two decades destroying her reputation in her hometown.
Fortunately, she's got help in unraveling the web of lies from childhood friend, Deputy Bobby Grace. Her late grandfather spent years trying to fix her up with the straight-laced lawman and it's starting to look like grandpa knew best as they work together to find out if his death is connected to a strange cult-like group that's set up business at the farm next door.
Can a gal in black lipstick find justice, love and maybe a blue ribbon for her jam at the county fair? Answers, action, mystery and romance are waiting for you in American Goth.
