Lowcountry Bombshell by Susan Boyer~ A Book Review


Lowcountry Bombshell by Susan Boyer~ A Book Review



I had the privilege to read Lowcountry Bombshell through Netgalley.com and I have to say it was an absolute delight.  This is the second installment in a series by Susan Boyer about investigator Liz Talbot, who lives in a house she inherited from her grandmother on an island near Charleston, South Carolina ( the city with the best food in the world!).

Whenever I encounter a book with a splashy, graphic comic book style cover and a similarly “Janet Evanovich” type title, I think “formula” and  “contrived” and “probably not for me”. However, this book was free for the reading and the teaser was intriguing.

Knock me over with a feather! This book was delightful! I love investigator Liz Talbot. So, she chats with her high school friend that committed suicide! In South Carolina there are ghosts (not to mention mustard based BBQ sauce!).  The story was cleverly well plotted; I did NOT figure out the murderer early on; and, best of all, this book was creative and entertaining!

The best review I can give is to say I want to read the first book, Lowcountry Boil.  There are still a few weeks left of beach reading and this book should be tucked into your tote!
