ARC review for Susan M. Boyer & Henery Press Books via Netgalley.
The Charleston streets are dressed for the holidays in sophisticated Southern style: topiaries adorned with red ribbons, garland entwined with white lights, and poinsettias potted in gold planters. The high class bordello in a stately historic home is certainly no exception. When Private Investigator Liz Talbot’s dear friend Olivia swears she saw a dead body in the parlor of this bordello, one Olivia accidentally co-owns, Liz promptly comes to her aid.
With her wedding back home on Stella Maris less than a week away, Liz must juggle one elderly madam, two ex and future in-laws, three ghosts in the bordello, four giddy bridesmaids, five lovely courtesans, six suspicious patrons…and a partridge in a pear tree as she tries to keep her bridesmaid out of jail and live to walk down the aisle.
Firstly, I would like to thank Susan M. Boyer for sending me this ARC via Netgalley.
Having never read any of the previous Liz Talbot mysteries I was unsure what to expect from this *new to me* series. She had me chuckling and hooked within the first few pages. 🙂
Her plotting and characters are full, rounded and fun. Her storyline and writing keep you turning the pages to see what happens next.
She has managed to gather another worshiper to her altar. And I will be sharing these books with my other reading friends.
