Liz Talbot thinks she's seen another ghost when she meets Calista McQueen. She's the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe. Born precisely fifty years after the ill-fated star, Calista's life has eerily mirrored the late starlet's--and she fears the looming anniversary of Marilyn's death will also be hers.
Before Liz can open a case file, Calista's life coach is executed. Suspicious characters swarm around Calista like mosquitoes on a sultry lowcountry evening: her certifiable mother, a fake aunt, her control-freak psychoanalyst, a private yoga instructor, her peculiar housekeeper, and an obsessed ex-husband. Liz digs in to find a motive for murder, but she's besieged with distractions. Her ex has marriage and babies on his mind. Her too-sexy partner engages in a campaign of repeat seduction. Mamma needs help with Daddy's devotion to bad habits. And a gang of wild hogs is running loose on Stella Maris.
With the heat index approaching triple digits, Liz races to uncover a diabolical murder plot in time to save not only Calista's life, but also her own.

Lowcounry Bombshell is the second in the Liz Talbot Mystery series. I felt like this was a pretty good stand alone. I haven't read the first one, but I think I was able to get the gist of the characters and their history. I liked the characters, Liz and Nate especially. I loved their relationshi...
Original review posted at A Date with a Book Characters: The characters are well developed. Descriptive enough that you get to know them and can identify some of these characters in your own lives. Liz's family is quite entertaining, but very supportive. Wait until you get to have family dinner with...
This is the second book in the Liz Talbot Mystery series by Susan M Boyer. I just finished the first book, Lowcountry Boil and was very excited to dive right into the second book. Liz was a complicated and complex character who's idiosyncrasies made her fun to read about. The last book ended with a...
