    RE READ 06 12 2015My thoughts are pretty much the same I was so impressed with Liz s strength emotional strength when she view spoiler turns down Michael when he comes crawling to her, begging her to marry him hide spoiler

    I found this book to be a totally charming read The author s voice and writing style are cozy mystery in tone but the protagonist here is a professional private investigator as opposed to a nosey heroine we find in so many cozies The story opens with Liz coming home for her grandmother s funeral, only to learn from her brother, the local chief of police, that the death is far from natural She also discovers that her grandmother has bequeath her house to Liz Liz s first inclination is to solve her grandmother s death then head back to her home in Georgia But she finds herself on the local city council and neck deep in small community gossip and politics I really liked this heroine I love that the author didn t give us another bumbling heroine who keeps her gun in a cookie jar Liz is strong, confident, carries a gun in her purse and knows how to use it , can give a round kick that will lay an attacker on his back and keeps a golden retriever as a body guard But if you re familiar with goldens at all, he s not the most vicious dog around I loved the southern feel that the author captures on every page I m looking forward to the next books in the series as we didn t get to spend much time with Liz s PI partner and I m interested in learning there We did get an introduction to Liz s ex, Michael, a married man who still carries an Olympic sized flame for Liz Lots of potential for some future romance for Liz but with which one And one thing Liz s dead friend is still keeping her company So we have a ghost, a strong heroine, a hunky ex, a hunky PI partner, a golden retriever, small town gossip and politics, a murder mystery and a southern setting What s not to like

    Y ALL There s a reason this book won a Daphne several reasons, actually If you like fantastic, funny mysteries with a great cast of very real characters, run don t walk to the nearest bookstore or link and order a copy of LOWCOUNTRY BOIL.I admit, I completely felt like Susan M Boyer wrote a mystery just for little ol me The heroine is a smartassed PI who doesn t know how to listen to her well meaning and over protective big brother and has a healthy helping of hunky guys hanging around Liz Talbot also happens to have a dog named Rhett, and affinities for the beach and Kenny Chesney Oh, and a mamma who owns a cast iron skillet, makes mean deviled eggs, and loves Estee Lauder lipstick Familiar, anyone who s ever met me But seriously this one is a keeper Full of mystery, fun, food, and several twists that I never saw coming, it s the kind of book that compels you to read it in a single sitting Witness, I am still in my PJs at 2 30 on Saturday afternoon, and that horrific grumbling is my stomach complaining that I ve eaten nothing today because I was so engrossed in the goings on in Stella Maris which, by the by, I am so sad isn t an actual place, because I want to go there.I m off to make some chicken salad You should be off to pre order this book In the interest of full disclosure, I read a pre publication advance copy, but was under no obligation to review it or say nice things about it It is an amazing read, though, and it ll be out in just 10 days, so go reserve it You can thank me in 11 days.

    This is a review of the audio and first installment in this fun cozy mystery series I think for the second book, I will read it rather than listen because the narrator s southern accent did not sound genuine to me I m from North Carolina and have lived in South Carolina, too, and it was the southern accent where you sound like you are talking with something in your mouth Accent aside, this was an entertaining mystery with engaging characters and even a ghost The Lowcountry is one of my favorite places on earth, so the setting worked perfectly I adored the main character, Liz, and I can t wait to read what escapades she s up to next Overall, a great start to the series.

    Susan M Boyer has written a clever mystery with an engaging female detective in Liz Talbot, a true Steel Magnolia She carries a Sig 9 and faces danger head on while keeping the gracious manners of a true Southern belle although her mother has to remind her to wear lipstick I loved the Low Country setting on her fictional but realistic island of Stella Maris, South Carolina You will hunger for the Southern and Low Country food, yearn for the beautiful beach setting, and bite your nails as you read this fast paced thriller LOWCOUNTRY BOIL is beautifully written, has intriguing twists, and is full of interesting Low Country details.
