A little Southern charm never killed anybody—until now—in an enchanting cozy mystery from the USA Today bestselling author of Southern Discomfort and the Java Jive novels.

After solving a murder at a local restaurant, Quinn Bellandini just wants to get back to her comfortable life running her grandfather’s B&B in Savannah, Georgia, with her sister, Delilah. But those plans get buried when Quinn and her new boyfriend, Tucker Heyward, dig up an old skeleton while doing some landscaping in his aunt Lela’s backyard. Before long, Lela becomes the prime suspect in the thirty-three-year-old unsolved murder of a high school homecoming queen.

Tucker is devastated. But Quinn’s conscience won’t let her risk an elderly woman spending her twilight years in jail for a crime she didn’t commit. And Delilah, bored by the quiet B&B biz, has been itching to do some more investigating of her own.

Soon they’re questioning a growing list of suspects, from nosy neighbors and snooty Savannah socialites to mild-mannered teachers and old high-school friends of the victim—including Quinn and Delilah’s own parents. But no one is safe from a killer who’s totally old school.
What I Thought:

This is the second in Southern B & B Mystery Series. In this installment, Quinn and her boyfriend Tucker are digging a fire pit in Tucker's Aunt Lela's backyard when they discover human remains.  The remains turn out the be those of former Homecoming Queen, Esther Sinclair, who disappeared 33 years ago.  After Lela's relationship with Esther all those years ago is uncovered, she becomes the main suspect and is arrested.  That means Quinn and her sister Delilah, along with Tucker, have to step in to figure our what really happened to Esther.  This was a well written cozy that grabbed my attention from the start and kept it throughout the entire story.  I enjoyed the setting of the story, Savannah, Ga, and that the story was set during the Christmas season.  The author is a very talented storyteller, and there were many twists and turns that kept me guessing till the very end.  I really enjoy this series, and I look forward to the next installment in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
