Publisher's Summary

Between an epic downpour and a King Tide, the historic streets of Charleston are flooded - and dangerous. A late night tragic accident along the Lower Battery leads Liz Talbot straight to her next case. Who's the client? Well, now, therein lies the first puzzle.

When the police arrive at the scene of the accident, Poppy Oliver claims she's only trying to help. But the dent on the front of her Subaru and the victim's injuries provoke a certain Charleston police detective's suspicious nature.

A wealthy, anonymous benefactor hires Liz and her partner Nate Andrews to prove Poppy Oliver's innocence. What exactly was Poppy Oliver up to? Is she a random good Samaritan who happens upon the accident scene? Or perhaps this tragedy wasn't an accident. She just might be his abused wife's accomplice.

From a risque, exclusive club in an old plantation to an upscale resale shop in the historic King Street shopping district to a downtown graveyard crawling with ghosts, Liz tracks a group of women who band together to help victims of domestic violence. In her most challenging case yet, Liz fears she may find a killer, but justice may prove elusive.

3 and a half stars

This story isn't as good as the previous books in this series. Liz and Nate are great characters, but the story didn't appeal to me. I'm hoping this is a fluke and the next story will be great like the other books in this series.

Bookshop is a must read in Liz Talbot series!

This is the seventh book in the Liz Talbot series and Susan M. Boyer has again made me feel like I’m right in the middle of all the mystery and drama as Liz and Nate uncover the details and truth in their latest investigation. Was it just a tragic accident, was it revenge or just a means to an end? Would justice be served by solving this case or could it do more harm than good? I really enjoy this series not only for the mystery in each installment and believable plots, but the fun added in from fellow Stella Maris residents and Liz’s family. The laughs continue with family dinners, daddy and his goats, and maybe a little romance for Blake? I loved this latest book in the series, if you enjoy mysteries with some laughs in the mix, you should read this series!

Another great Lowcountry book by Susan M. Boyer!

Mystery fans will appreciate the twists and turns in Lowcountry Bookshop. Ms. Boyer put together the pieces of this mystery in a way that I did not foresee. I had considered at least four different scenarios and had not even thought of the ultimate twist! I live in the greater Charleton area and I am always impressed by Ms. Boyer's attention to detail. If you have travelled to Charleston, SC, you may recognize some of the venues mentioned. If you have never been to the Holy City, please take note of restaurants, theaters, churches and historic sites and put them on your bucket list!

To much space wasting Yackety, Yack

It's sad to say BUT "Lowcountry Bookshop", really took me down---had to turn it off.

To much Yackety Yack and not much story line.

Good luck if you can get through this book.
