the only time the book made me blink.The truth is Liz has plenty to investigate as Colleen soon alerts her to The island is rife with political conflict, politics, domestic abuse, contract killers

to solve her grandmother s death then head back to her home in Georgia But she finds herself on the local city council and neck deep in small community gossip and politics I really liked this heroine I love that the author didn t give us another bumbling heroine who keeps her gun in a cookie jar Liz is strong, confident, carries a gun in her purse and knows how to use it , can give a round kick that will lay an attacker on his back and keeps a golden retriever as a body guard But if you re familiar with goldens at all, he s not the most vicious dog around I loved the southern feel that the author captures on every page I m looking forward to the next books in the series as we didn t get to spend much time with Liz s PI partner and I m interested in learningthere We did get an introduction to Liz s ex, Michael, a married man who still carries an Olympic sized flame for Liz Lots of potential for some future romance for Liz but with which one And onething Liz s dead friend is still keeping her company So we have a ghost, a strong heroine, a hunky ex, a hunky PI partner, a golden retriever, small town gossip and politics, a murder mystery and a southern setting What s not
