Susan M. Boyer
#7 in the Liz Talbot Mystery Series
Henery Press May 29, 2018
Lowcountry PI Liz Talbot returns to the streets of Charleston in the seventh installment of Susan M. Boyer’s USA TODAY bestselling mystery series.
Between an epic downpour and a King Tide, those historic streets are flooded—and dangerous. A late night tragic accident along the Lower Battery leads Liz Talbot straight to her next case.
Who’s the client? Well, now, therein lies the first puzzle. When the police arrive at the scene of the accident, Poppy Oliver claims she’s only trying to help.
But the dent on the front of her Subaru and the victim’s injuries provoke a certain Charleston police detective’s suspicious nature. A wealthy, anonymous benefactor hires Liz and her partner Nate Andrews to prove Poppy Oliver’s innocence.
What exactly was Poppy Oliver up to? Is she a random good Samaritan who happens upon the accident scene? Or perhaps this tragedy wasn’t an accident. She just might be his abused wife’s accomplice.
Why does everyone involved in this case have a sudden burning urge for reading material, leading them to the same charming bookshop along the waterfront?
From a risqué, exclusive club in an old plantation to an upscale resale shop in the historic King Street shopping district to a downtown graveyard crawling with ghosts, Liz tracks a group of women who band together to help victims of domestic violence.
In her most challenging case yet, Liz fears she may find a killer, but justice may prove elusive.
*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
What an incredible addition to this series! We get follow Liz as she investigates what may be a hit and run murder or it could be something else. Her P.I. duo is hired through some odd means and the questions just keep piling up from there. Of course these all lead to a conclusion that I really did not see coming which is always nice. I love the addition of the guardian spirit as this provides a nice added element to this series which really gives it some flair. If you are looking for a good suspenseful murder mystery book/series then I highly recommend that you try this one. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
