"Susan Boyer delivers big time with a witty mystery that is fun, radiant, and impossible to put down. I LOVE THIS BOOK!" – New York Times Bestselling Author, Darynda Jones).
Liz Talbot thinks she's seen another ghost when she meets Calista McQueen. She's the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe.
Born precisely fifty years after the ill-fated star, Calista's life has eerily mirrored the late starlet's - and she fears the looming anniversary of Marilyn's death will also be hers. Before Liz can open a case file, Calista's life coach is executed.
Suspicious characters swarm around Calista like mosquitoes on a sultry low country evening: her certifiable mother, a fake aunt, her control-freak psychoanalyst, a private yoga instructor, her peculiar housekeeper, and an obsessed ex-husband.
Liz digs in to find a motive for murder, but she's besieged with distractions. Her ex has marriage and babies on his mind. Her too-sexy partner engages in a campaign of repeat seduction. Mamma needs help with Daddy’s devotion to bad habits. And a gang of wild hogs is running loose on Stella Maris. With the heat index approaching triple digits, Liz races to uncover a diabolical murder plot in time to save not only Calista's life, but also her own.

At home in the snowy mountains of Utah. Who says you need to have a summer...
i have happily recommended this book to several friends It is a fast paced frothing blend of mystery, coincidence, romance, look-a-likes, and gun play. Oh, and a guardian spirit to boot.
A tossup between the first meeting with her new client and the ill-fated ferry back to the island. One is a near perfect start to the book and the other is fate personified.
I listened to her performance in the first book of the series and loved it. Then she goes all breathy and gives us a really great Marilyn. Great pacing and near perfect characterizations.
Genteel Southern Living Will Rise Again. (or at least we all can hope so....)
Give it and the first book in the series a chance. You will not regret it.
Yes, yes, of course! Loretta Rawlings' southern sounds will lure you in, and keep you begging for more! The storyline moves quickly enough to keep you interested, and the ending is always a shocker!
So many plot twists, hard to pick the one.
The ending.....but I won't spoil it for you
Sweet southern drawl, sexy walk & a big gun!
I can't wait for the next book. It's out now, just not here on Audible.......please put a rush on it!
Make me swoon, scream, cry, laugh, and feel the passion. I want books that grab your attention and don't let go. I'm certainly addicted.
Absolutely, I probably will again before I start the 4th installment
Yes, I couldn't predict who the killer was and how everything fit together
She does a wonderful job with all the character voices and has a nice pace. There's no annoying swallowing sounds or anything like that. She really brings the book to life.
Hmmmm...... stopping history repeating?
Such a fun twist having the story parallel Marilyn Monroe's life. Lots of great detail and research went into this book and that's really what made the story. Great growth with main characters and interesting new ones brought in. I loved this book!
Say something about yourself!
It is very good. The characters are interesting, fun, and believable.
Liz, of course!
Her accent is perfect.
Lady detective in the Low Country.
