I enjoyed this book! It's set in Georgia and the author's voice is authentic. The characters were well chosen and well developed. The plot was interesting with an unexpected twist. If you're looking for some light southern humor, with a slightly dark twist, you'll probably enjoy this. I liked it enough to track down the next 5 books in this series and to buy them!

*Book source ~ Many thanks to Untreed Reads for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Crime reporter Samantha ‘Sam’ Adams is back in her hometown of Atlanta after living in California for 20 years. Her Uncle George is a retired lawyer slowly losing his sight and Sam moves back in. It’s as if she’s never left. When a family friend and fellow lawyer disappears and then turns up dead, Sam can’t help but question the accidental death he is labeled with by the suspiciously crooked Sheriff. Sam smells a story, two stories actually. One about Forrest Ridley the ‘accidental’ death victim and the other about crooked good ol’ boy Sheriffs in the South. Can Sam get to the bottom of these stories or will she end up at the bottom of a lake?

A satisfactory mystery with enough twists and turns to keep one guessing this story has great characters and humor, plus a possible rekindling of a long ago romance. I’m not very forgiving so Beau, no matter how handsome and hot he is, would get the cold shoulder from me indefinitely. But Sam seems to be thawing and I find that disappointing. If he’s going to come back into her life I wish she’d make him suffer for longer than one book. But then, that’s just me. Overall though I found the portrayal of the South funny and fairly accurate. At least from what I’ve seen and heard as a Yankee (from OH) who has moved to NC. I may not be living in the Deep South, but close enough. *winks*

SArah Shankman is a great story-teller - see my review of the sequel "Ten Hang all the Liars." I am trying to find more books by her for my end-of-a-busy-day reading; not too involved, but enough plot and mystery to enjoy.
