Liz Talbot is a modern Southern belle: she blesses hearts and takes names. She carries her Sig 9 in her Kate Spade handbag, and her golden retriever, Rhett, rides shotgun in her hybrid Escape.

Then her long-dead best friend pops in and things really get complicated.

Full of simmering suspense and intrigue

Liz Talbot is a modern Southern belle: she blesses hearts and takes names. She carries her Sig 9 in her Kate Spade handbag, and her golden retriever, Rhett, rides shotgun in her hybrid Escape. When her grandmother is murdered, Liz high-tails it back to her South Carolina island home to find the killer. But when her police-chief brother shuts her out of the investigation, she opens her own. Then her long-dead best friend pops in and things really get complicated. As more folks turn up dead, Liz must use more than just her wits and charm to keep her family safe, chase down clues from the hereafter, and catch a psychopath before he catches her.

What the Critics Say

"Imaginative, empathetic, genuine, and fun, Lowcountry Boil is a lowcountry delight." (Carolyn Hart, Author of What the Cat Saw)

"It's a simmering gumbo of a story full of spice, salt, heat and shrimp. She had me guessing, detouring for a few laughs then doubling back for another clue right until the last chapter." (The Huffington Post)

    "Pleasant surprise"

    I passed this book up several times before finally giving it a chance. I'm glad I decided to listen to it. It was very entertaining. The characters were realistic and intersting. The plot was believable and nicely paced. This was an enjoyable book and I will buy the next in the series.

    "Good Easy Listen"

    The book was a departure for me from listening to the same author for a while. The book was entertaining and the author did a good job of not revealing the final ending through a series of plot twists. Looking forward to picking up the next in the series.

    "Low country boil"

    Fully enjoyable mystery that you could really sink your teeth into. I loved Liz, and her ghostly assistant. The mystery had heft, the characters were memorable and well used, and I was completely caught up in life on The island.

    "Excellently!"

    Enjoyed the writing immensely, and while the narrator had a couple of vocal tics that I could live without, overall it didn't matter.

    "Engaging, w some plot flaws"

    Good low country detail, well read. Needed a continuity editor for minor plot problems; this PI and her friends get a LOT of help from coincidence. A fun, light "read once" book.

    "Loved it!"

    Dialect and accent were spot on. References and customs made this lowcountry girl feel homesick. (Good mystery too)

    "Low Country Boil Accolades!"
    Where does Lowcountry Boil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 80% out of 100%. Great narrator and story.. I'm definitely buying the next two in the series. I've listened to a lot of audio books of many genres over the years so my ranking may not sound very high, but in this books genre and type , I'd rank it 98%. More books please!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did. There were many twists and turns and every other chapter had another "event" to keep you on the edge of your seat and trying to solve the mystery. The characters were so likeable and "hateable" One I wanted to shake and others just hug.. Do not want to give away the plot, but Colleen stole the show.


    What about Loretta Rawlins’s performance did you like?

    I loved her very authentic accent and her enunciation. She is perfect for Susan Boyer!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but unfortunately, I can't, but I also bought the ebook and toggled back and forth.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a great book, but an unknown author who will not stay that way for long. Please more books and thank you!
