Beginning ~ before it hit the fan

"It was the first day of October, and all things considered, Mitford was pretty quiet.  Around the tenth of the month is when it would hit the fan."
To Be Where You Are ~ by Jan Karon, 2017, fiction (North Carolina)
After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself.  Then he's given one.  As for what it proves, heaven only knows.  Millions of Karon fans will be thrilled that it’s life as usual in the wildly popular Mitford series:  A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died?  And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who’s still running for office?  Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice.  In this latest Mitford novel, Jan Karon weaves together the compelling lives of two Kavanagh families and a cast of characters that readers around the world now love like kin.
And I'm wondering what it is, exactly, that's about to hit the fan.

I would love to live in Mitford. The beginning built my curiosity. Would love to read the novel.
