Susan M. Boyer does a rip-roaring, mystery with this one. It has lots of action, plenty of interesting characters, and the sweet romance between our Protagonists. This time the murder of Trina Lynn Causby has Liz Talbot and her Husband Nate working overtime. They are defending Darius Baker, the retired star of Mainstreet U.S.A. With such lush characters as Moon Unit and other varied, southern characters this book is a page turner in the true sense. I sat and read the whole thing at one go.
Not only is the charm of the story the ripe setting of Stella Maris, but parts of it were so funny I laughed out loud. The varied food makes you want to visit and if I ever find Chef's better than Charleston or this particular Island they will never get rid of me. Additionally, the fact that Liz and her Husband are Private Investigators is a plus. If Magnum P.I. had been married with this setting...well you get the picture. Treat yourself and read this one. I enjoyed it.
