Publisher's Summary

"The hilarious dialog and the tension between Savannah and Rafe will delight fans of chick-lit mysteries and romantic suspense." (Jo Ann Vicarel, Library Journal)
 

Savannah Martin has always been a good girl, doing what was expected and fully expecting life to fall into place in its turn. But when her perfect husband turns out to be a lying, cheating slimeball, and bad in bed to boot, Savannah kicks the jerk to the curb and embarks on life on her own terms. With a new apartment, a new career, and a brand new outlook on life, she’s all set to take the world by storm.
 

If only the world would stop throwing her curveballs...
 

When Savannah Martin’s fellow realtor and friend Lila Vaughn is robbed during an open house, Savannah rushes to the rescue with tea and sympathy, or at least a really good lunch and a shoulder to cry on. However, Lila seems more peeved than distraught, and her main gripe is that the sexy robber who tied her to a kitchen chair - for her own good - didn’t follow her suggestion to tie her to the bed instead.
 

Lila’s description of the man fits Savannah’s old school mate Rafael Collier to a T. Rafe has recently turned up in Savannah’s life again, and he isn’t above doing a little breaking and entering. Metro Nashville Homicide Detective Tamara Grimaldi is of the same opinion, and when Lila turns up dead, tied to her bed and strangled, Rafe becomes a suspect. Now Savannah must get busy finding the real murderer before Detective Grimaldi can arrest the wrong man.

Loved It

Well bless her heart. Savannah is just a delicate and genteel southern woman. (Insert eye roll) This book portrays true stereotypes of the south. But it also portrays the struggle that Savannah as a character goes through in order to overcome those stereotypes. For so long, Savannah has been the good girl and did what she was told to do. Now she is starting to think for herself and look at Rafe as Rafe as a person. She still has a long way to go, but, so far, her character is developing and evolving at a realistic pace. The character that annoyed me the most is Todd. He really needs to sit down somewhere. His actions are petty, cowardly and selfish.

This is a well written book. Jenna Bennet does a very good job portraying the attitudes in the south and how people can grow and evolve. Although the subject matter is serious, there is still a balance of humor and romantic tension to keep this a light cozy mystery. While the mystery is ok and interesting, it looks like the real mystery Savannah is investigating is the mysterious Rafeal Collier.

While I have most of the series on my Kindle, I do hope the rest of the books will be released in the audiobook format. I am really enjoying listening to this series from the beginning. I do wish for a better narrator. The J in Julio is pronounced like H.
