Where is Kent Heyward? The twenty-three-year-old heiress from one of Charleston's oldest families vanished a month ago. When her father hires private investigator Liz Talbot, Liz suspects the most difficult part of her job will be convincing the patriarch his daughter tired of his overbearing nature and left town. That's what the Charleston Police Department believes.
But behind the garden walls South of Broad, family secrets pop up like weeds in the azaleas. The neighbors recollect violent arguments between Kent and her parents. Eccentric twin uncles and a gaggle of cousins covet the family fortune. And the lingering spirit of a Civil-War-era debutante may know something if Colleen, Liz's dead best friend, can get her to talk.
Liz juggles her case, the partner she's in love with, and the family she adores. But the closer she gets to what has become of Kent, the closer Liz dances to her own grave.

I really enjoyed this installment in the Liz Talbot cozy mystery. The relationship between Liz and Nate worked out because they acted like adults and talked through their problems (hear that contemporary romance writers?). They also focused on the case, working off the theory that their missing pers...
Note: I received an eARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. I was not paid to write this nor did receiving the eARC affect my opinion. All thoughts and opinions are my own. There are days when I’m just dying for a cozy mystery, and Henery Press always delivers. So what did I read to s...
It's been a year and half since I read Lowcountry Boil and Lowcountry Bombshell, books 1 & 2 in the series. I enjoyed them very much and have been randomly checking to see when the next book would be out. I was thrilled to be able to finally get in on early on Netgalley. Though it has been awhile s...
