Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank gives a former TV star one more shot at fame - and it proves to be a killer comeback...
Ten years ago, Summer Butler was television's most popular teenage sleuth. Since then, she's hit - what gossip sites just love to call - the gutter. Nearly bankrupt, betrayed, estranged from her greedy mother, and just about unemployable, she's coaxed into that desperate haven for has-beens: reality TV.
Winging it as a faux PI, she'll solve off-the-cuff mysteries in her hometown of Sweet Briar, Alabama. For added drama, there's police chief Luke Montgomery, inconveniently Summer's first and only love.
It's when Summer stumbles upon a very real corpse that Darling Investigations takes an unexpected twist. The growing list of suspects is a big draw to viewers, but the reality is that Summer doesn't know whom she can trust. Someone has written this killer new scene especially for her, and unless Summer gives the role everything she's got, it could be her last...

Delayed homecoming for Summer

Financially, Summer has almost hit bottom. The commitment to pay for the family farm, a promise she made with her grandfather before he died accidentally has consumed her meager earnings. In desperation, she agrees to star in a reality show as a detective.

Returning to her hometown, fraught with anxiety and dread, she runs into her old boyfriend, the Chief of Police. Throw in 2 murders, a bag of cash, and a bully for a series director and her life becomes only more complicated.

The book has a fairly complex storyline with many well developed characters. The mystery element was fast-paced and fun to listen to. The book was NOT naughty, as described by a previous review. No sexual scenes or descriptions, just intention and wishful thinking.

Narrator Megan Tusing was good, but will improve with more differentiation of voices between characters.

Easy, fun listen.

Loved it!!

Denise Grover Swank has done it again!! I was completely absorbed in Summer’s world from the beginning of the book. A page turner, filled with drama, comedy, and suspense. I absolutely LOVE this series and cannot wait for Blazing Summer!! So anxious to read it and see what kind of trouble Summer and Dixie can get into.
