All Georgia sass Savannah Reid and her assistant Tammy Hart get their first case. Along with the all male Detective Coulter who tries not to let his soft side show except for Savannah's cooking and junk food. Savannah is searching for a sister,Lisa, whom at the time is trying to stay in hiding because of an abusive ex husband who wants their daughter. Not knowing that the man who hired her, is no other than the ex dressed up like Lisa's brother. If you have already read this read it again and jump back to where things begin. I have of course read the newest book first and now am going in order. It only took the one to get me hooked on these delectable mysteries. ( )

Second in the series, this book is a great introduction to a smart,quirky, modern sleuth sure to charm the pants off anyone. Granny Reid alone is an excellent reason to read these mysteries! ( )

This is the 2nd in the series and I enjoyed this one much like the first. They've prove to be really quick reads with enjoyable characters and a solid storyline. My only complaint is that being only the 2nd book in the series I wish the author had gone back and refreshed my/the reader's memory of who the players are in Savannah Reid's detective agency - I'm still trying remember where the character Tammy came from in the first book. I'm looking forward to continuing with the rest of the series. ( )
