The story itself was engaging. I love a good mystery. I love Marilyn Monroe. Using real facts regarding the mystery surrounding the starlet's death really helped to enhance the other elements of the plot. It helped to hold my attention, and kept me glued to page after page until the culprit was revealed.
The author mentions that unlike the first book, this one contains sex. I'm not a fan of sex scenes in books. Due to how much I enjoyed the first book, I threw caution to the wind and decided to read it anyway. Compared to some other books, which were completely off-putting, these scenes were tame. I was pretty relieved at that!
I have to say, the end was a total surprise. I won't spoil it, but I never saw the twist and was delighted in being surprised. If you enjoy a good mystery, the laid back lifestyle of the South, and Marilyn Monroe, then you will love this book.
I was not familiar with author Susan Boyer. LOW COUNTRY BOIL was her first release, and after reading the premise of the story and the reviews written, decided it was a book that sounded like it would be a good read and fun. Well, the reviewers were right on target. I think I experienced all the emotions of pleasure, happiness, sadness, anticipation to find out "who done it", and lots of laughter over an extremely funny book.
What surprised me was that after enjoying it so much, l went right back to get her second release LOW COUNTRY BOMBSHELL and finished it in less than a day. I agree with the reviewers that said they thought the second was even better than the first. Now I just hope that her next release will be coming through very soon because I'm looking forward to more books in the Liz Talbot Mystery Series. My suggestion to other readers is do yourself a favour -- get these books in sequence, find a quiet spot and be prepared to be entertained.
Liz Talbot is a private investigator who lives on the island of Stella Maris, near Charleston, SC. Taylor is hired by Calista McQueen, a beautiful woman who is a dead-ringer for the bombshell actress, Marilyn Monroe. Her life has paralleled the famous actress in so many ways that it is uncanny. McQueen is now getting threats and believes that someone is going to kill her on the anniversary of Monroe’s death—less than a week away. At first, most people think that McQueen is exaggerating including Blake Talbot, Liz’s police chief-brother. But then Liz’s life is threatened as well and things are looking more serious. And as if Liz doesn’t have enough on her plate, she is dealing with complications in her love life. Her current boyfriend/ partner does not want to relocate to Stella Maris, and her former boyfriend is actively pursuing her. It makes for some tense moments.
Lowcountry Bombshell was an enjoyable read for a vacation. Ok—McQueen’s family was a little over the top. And you have to buy into the fact that Liz’s dead friend from her teenage-years has reappeared and become her “guardian spirit.” Also, I could have done without the very detailed sex scenes. Still, I am hooked on this series and immediately started book one, Lowcountry Boil. My one recommendation is to read these books in order. The changes in Liz’s personal life will make more sense.
