Two heads are usually better than one so Delilah gets involved in the investigation as well, along with trying to match make between Quinn and their old but now new neighbor, Tucker. Can they find the real killer before Drew and possibly Quinn are both sent up the river for good?
I really enjoyed all these great main characters! Papa Sal is just the kind of grandpa anyone would want even though he does take advice from his dead brother Frank's ghost, or so he says he sees him. I loved how when push came to shove, Delilah had her younger sister's back and dug into the investigation with her. They would tease each other good-naturedly but always were looking out for each other.
I feel like we got to know the characters with just the right amount of backstory and information, definitely not an overload. Delilah and Quinn were people I would want to be friends with. Quinn playing in bar band gigs on the side was an interesting touch, not really something expected out of a B&B part owner.
It was fun how clues that Uncle Frank gave actually worked out--I'm hoping we see, er I mean hear more from him in future books. I was happy to see things develop smoothly between Tucker and Delilah--it'll be interesting to see what kinds of adventures these people get into next!
This is a must-read for those who enjoy well-crafted mysteries where you feel like you are in the middle of the action and can't put the book down as you enjoy a southern getaway with a charming whodunit. I can't wait to see what's in store next for the Bellandini sisters in book two of the Southern B & B Mystery series.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my unbiased review. I liked the book so much, I purchased a copy for my keeper library.
Southern Discomfort is a new series for Caroline Fardig who is the author of A Java Jive Mysteries. I was never able to get drawn into the story. I felt the author failed to properly set the stage for her readers with the setting or with the characters. We are given few details on the main characters or the B&B. We are given lovely descriptions of Savannah (I would love to visit). The main problem was Quinn. I kept hoping she would grow on me, but she did not (I did plot some good ways for the author to do her in). She had a chip on her shoulder (regarding Tucker and incident that occurred in high school), judgmental, naïve at times, loses her temper frequently and easily, and wishy washy (she is a contradiction). I found myself cringing at some of Quinn’s comments. Sal, Quinn’s grandfather had a good attitude and his magic act sounded entertaining (also unique for a B&B). Delilah seemed grounded and more realistic. I enjoyed her interactions with Uncle Fred, the resident ghost (Sal’s as well). I would have enjoyed Southern Discomfort more if Delilah had been the main character with Quinn as her sidekick. There was a hint of a ghost in the story, but it was in the background. I wanted more of Uncle Fred (the resident ghost). He provided some good insight into the mystery. Solving the crime is not one that can completely be solved because readers are not given all the details until right before the reveal. Those people who read a significant amount of mysteries will have no problem predicting what will occur (two little nuggets of information give it away). There was a lack of action in the book (there was Quinn asking questions and I wanted something more). I felt too much time was devoted to Quinn thinking and speculating about the mystery and Tucker. Let us not forget the cliché nasty detective (Detective Flynn). The reason for Quinn returning to the restaurant and discovering the body was slim and farfetched. I think there should have been less focus on Tucker and the romance between him and Quinn. As you can tell, I was not the right audience for Southern Discomfort (my mother, though, found it funny—as you can tell we have different reading tastes). To see if Southern Discomfort is the right fit for you, get a sample and judge for yourself. Happy Reading!
