Holly Goddard Jones' debut novel The Next Time You See Me is a literary mystery set in a small Kentucky town on the Tennessee border. Jones was born and raised in a small Western Kentucky town, much like the setting for her two books of fiction. The New York Times praises her novel, noting “Ms. Jones has a talent for making even scenes apart from the central mystery feel suspenseful,” and calling the novel “equally impressive” as “her terrific book of short stories, ‘Girl Trouble’”
