Summary: Private Investigators Liz Talbot and Nate Andrews have worked their share of domestic cases. So when Tammy Sue Lyerly hires them to find out what her husband is hiding, they expect to find something looney but harmless. After all, this is the guy who claims to have been a DEA agent, a champion bull rider, and a NASCAR driver. But when he turns up dead the morning after Liz and Nate deliver the incriminating photos, Tammy is the prime suspect.
Questioning the truth of Zeke Lyerly’s tall-tales, Liz and Nate race to uncover small town scandals, long buried secrets, and the victim’s tumultuous past to keep Tammy Sue out of jail and the case from going up in flames.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Southerners love to tell tall tales. We like a good story. Nobody wants to hear about catching a fish that was *this big*- we want to know about THE BIG FISH. Or the GREAT deal. And so on and so forth.. Southerners are natural born story tellers and Zeke fit the bill 100%.
Even his how dead body was found made for a great story!
My fav sleuthing duo- Liz and Nate- are trying to get to the bottom of what happened to Zeke, but some people don’t want the truth to be revealed. AT ALL.
What I liked:
Cover. Listen, this Henery Press people know good covers.. and are not afraid to design them 😉
The dynamic duo of Liz and Nate. This is just a personal theory of mine, but I think some cozy mystery type authors are afraid to have their main characters select the man they are interested in (if it’s a love triangle) and especially have them married. Maybe it’s that Moonlighting theory (the suspense and anticipation of the “will they or won’t they?”) BUT Susan M. Boyer is showing authors everywhere that your character can get married and still be sexy and flirtatious with her husband. Love the chemistry of Liz and Nate.
The mystery. It kept me guessing!
Bottom line: Susan M. Boyer’s Lowcountry series has me wishing I could be a PI, trade in Mississippi roots and move to South Carolina. Love this book!
