USA Today best-seller and Agatha Award Winner Winner for Best First Novel
Full of simmering suspense and intrigue
Liz Talbot is a modern Southern belle: she blesses hearts and takes names. She carries her Sig 9 in her Kate Spade handbag, and her golden retriever, Rhett, rides shotgun in her hybrid Escape. When her grandmother is murdered, Liz high-tails it back to her South Carolina island home to find the killer. But when her police-chief brother shuts her out of the investigation, she opens her own. Then her long-dead best friend pops in and things really get complicated. As more folks turn up dead, Liz must use more than just her wits and charm to keep her family safe, chase down clues from the hereafter, and catch a psychopath before he catches her.
"Imaginative, empathetic, genuine, and fun, Lowcountry Boil is a lowcountry delight." (Carolyn Hart, Author of What the Cat Saw)
"It's a simmering gumbo of a story full of spice, salt, heat and shrimp. She had me guessing, detouring for a few laughs then doubling back for another clue right until the last chapter." (The Huffington Post)

Engaging, w some plot flaws
Smarter than your ordinary cozy mystery.
Yes. Cozy mysteries aren't rocket science. They're usually formulaic with the same characters and tropes you see in every other book. This book does follow the pattern but it's better than most. Honestly there isn't much difference between great and awful in cozy mysteries but this one is definitely up the great end.
If there is one criticism I have it's that it was a bit like Spiderman 3. Too many villains and honestly they were kind of hyper evil...almost cartoonishly so. It made the book a little cumbersome. One / maybe two villains was all the book needed.
