5.0 out of 5 starsCan Lily Solve a Cold Case
Reviewed in the United States on May 27, 2020
Lily not only has to solve a cold case, but she needs to help Dylan find and return the stolen coins. Can Lily do it? Will the cold case be solved? I love reading about Lily, her friends, their closeness/affection for each other, and their Community. I love the way Carolyn adds romance for not only Lily and Dylan but also Belle and Matthew to take the story from good to great. It seems that her gang of seniors will be expanding from five to six soon with some help from Lily and Belle. I can hardly wait to see how that plays out in future stories.
Great book! Love Lily, Dylan, and Belle and charming Bramblett County, Georgia. Lily finds a coin collection missing at one of her open houses with a note saying that she will get it back if she solves a 35 year old murder. Lily is determined to solve this case even though one of her good friends is a suspect. Lots of intrigue in trying to solve this cold case. The four seniors are a hoot as always as well. Can't wait for more of this delightful Southern series.
I simply cannot stop reading these books! They are exciting at times, and funny, suspenseful at other times, and then there is the solid friendships that Lily and Belle have. Lily is the best amateur sleuth since Jessica Fletcher in my opinion. More Lily Sprayberry books please!
Lily is showing a property for a family that is out of the country. When she closes up, she notices a valuable coin collection is missing, and there is a note saying it will be returned if she is able to solve a 35-year-old murder cold case.
Well written, solid story, a few red herrings, and a little humor.
Lily and Belle have an open house, and oh no, a very valuable coin collection has disappeared under their watch! When locking up the home after the open house, inside the box in place of the coins there is a note meant specifically for Lily asking her to solve a cold case of a murder of a 17 year old girl that happened long ago. Once the murder is solved the collection will be returned to her. Victim Jenny Rawlings was found in a shallow grave by the side of the road by a maintenance worker over 30 years ago, but the case was never solved. After reviewing the deputy sheriff’s notes from over three decades ago, she is horrified to see that an old friend was the primary suspect and is determined to clear his name! Lily, Belle, and Dylan work together to uncover the murderer in the hopes of getting the coil collection back and also clearing their friend’s name, but as they get farther along with the case the more questions they have. Lily is also a little distracted by the numerous wedding plans that need to be made for her upcoming nuptials to one sexy sheriff. There is another romance budding as well with their beloved Millie and an old flame that added another very entertaining bit to the story line. Bonnie and Henrietta are as hilarious as ever, and I just could not stop laughing! Will Lilybit and Belle find the murderer and get the coin collection back in time, and also clear the name of their good friend? Or will this case of the very unfortunate murder of a young lady remain unsolved? I love all of the Lily Sprayberry books, but I really think this is the best one yet!
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat addition to to this southern cozy mystery series
Reviewed in the United States on April 16, 2019
I love this series and the latest addition did not disappoint. I was really missing Lily and her friends, and this book came out just in time, because I needed a nice cozy mystery fix. This works well as a stand-alone, and this one is a bit different, since Lily is trying to solve a cold case murder, instead of a current crime. (Her fiancé, the sheriff, is working to solve the “heist” in the title, while it’s primarily Lily who is studying the old case file and interviewing suspects from a 1970s murder of a teenage girl.) For once, I figured out the probable murder well before the “reveal,” but the resolution and details were still quite satisfying. As an aside, Lily is having trouble planning her wedding, although she very much wants to marry Dylan—it’s the wedding itself that is overwhelming to her. I love weddings, so I have a hard time empathizing, but I understand being overwhelmed. I’m excited to see what happens in the next book or two to resolve that situation—they just need to get married already! The southern charm of this book and its dialogue rang true to me and always add a lot to this series. I can’t recommend this enough.
5.0 out of 5 starsSolving a heist leads to investigating a cold case murder!

Someone in the fictional southern small town of Aspenson, Georgia believes there is not a mystery that Lily cannot solve. But the method employed to recruit her help to solve a decades old unsolved murder is less than honorable (in my opinion). Nevertheless, Lily is determined to solve both the current mystery and cold case.
I love reading about Lily and her friends and their lives. There is always a little romance added to the story to take it from good to great. It seems that her gang of seniors will be expanding from five to six soon (with a little help from Lily and Belle). I can hardly wait to see how that plays out in future stories.
An enjoyable and entertaining clean, fun, and easy read. On to book six of the series.
There a few typos. This is always a pet peeve of mine but that's not the writer's fault. It's what you have editors for. I like Lily and the way she worked through things. I'm not sure the crazy seniors added much to the overall story, the murderer seemed pretty obvious with the circumstances so the ending was a bit cliched.
