Overview

Murder and blackmail amid the ruins of antebellum splendor... Someone is making a killing in real estate.

Coastal South Carolina...ancient live oaks, pristine beaches, the remains of antebellum splendor...

Bay Tanner's world is paradise until she witnesses her husband's horrific death. Wounded and grieving, Bay retreats to her hideaway on Hilton Head Island. Then a cry for help forces her back to reality. Can she ignore the plight of her old money friends and family whose involvement in a shadowy land scheme may lead them to financial disaster? And what does all this have to do with Rob's murder? When a body is discovered floating near the ruins of an old plantation house, Bay is forced to confront these questions and admit that one thing is certain—someone is making a killing in real estate.

From In For A Penny: the sharp blare of sirens penetrated my half-conscious mind. My attacker dropped me, face down in the pine straw, and sprinted away. I had just managed to struggle to my hands and knees when the night was shattered by a blast so loud it seemed to come from inside my head. I had barely a second for the smoke and flame to register on my numbed senses.

Then choking darkness enveloped me.

    Her first book. Her writing style really improves with the 3 book on. Each one just gets better. Reminds me of a calmer Sue Grafton. Fun. If you have been around Hilton Head South Carolina, you will enjoy trying to figure what what areas she is

    talking about. Keep reading her. She just gets better.

    A Promising Debut

    Ms. Wall's debut novel is a pleasant surprise. Rich in detail and densely plotted, her first foray into the mystery genre is a promising one. An appealing female protagonist, colorful supporting characters, and a keen sense of place help make 'In For a Penny' an engrossing, satisfying read. Her deft prose moves the story along at a brisk pace and at the same time is able to evoke the charm and mystery of the Lowcountry. Several indicators suggest this is the first of a series. Here's hoping that the lovely Bay Tanner can happen upon further intrigues in the not-too-distant future.

    First book in a fun series

    I began this series in the middle in that, at the time that I started, the first book, self published, was not widely available. I am a fan of the series. Interesting characters. Great read for those familiar with Hilton Head.

    In this opening book, Bay Tanner (the protagonist) is the her sassy self. Very interesting character.

    Overall, a good book, but a bit flawed. There were a few lapses where an editor was needed, sometimes motivations were weak or poorly developed (especially for Bay Tanner's father), and I did get tired of Bay reaching for a cigarette. Despite these weaknesses, well worth reading.
