Overview

Plus-sized private eye Savannah Reid is about to discover the answer to that age-old question: What could be worse than going back home to the Deep South in the height of August humidity? It's going home to a wedding--not your own--without a ring on your finger or a date on your arm. But a hideous bridesmaid's dress is the least of Savannah's problems after her kid brother is arrested for murder. . .

As the oldest of nine siblings, Savannah has attended her share of family weddings south of the Mason-Dixon Line. . .several of which have featured her sister Marietta as the bride. But before the fickle Southern belle can traipse down the aisle with her latest Mr. Right, the youngest of the Reid brood is thrown into the slammer. At first, Savannah wonders if unruly Macon really is responsible for killing the Honorable Judge Patterson. But when she learns that the ornery old geezer had more enemies than Marietta's had husbands, Savannah is convinced that her brother's been framed.

Shaking the Patterson family tree nets Savannah an assortment of embittered ex-wives, spurned mistresses, and illegitimate offspring--but no real leads. Now, with hapless Macon stewing in a steamy cell and Marietta pouting about her postponed nuptials, it's time for Big Sis Savannah to turn up the heat and show a cleverly concealed killer that this is one Georgia peach who ain't just whistlin' Dixie. . ..

"Savannah Reid makes a good showing in this strong series' latest volume. . .McKevett also delivers a surprise ending with panache--the clues are there!" --Publishers Weekly

"A luscious heroine, humor, and down-home characters." --Library Journal

    delightful regional mystery

    With a lush for a mother and a trucker for a father who was on the road more then he was home, Savannah Reid and her maternal grandmother raised the eight younger Reids. As soon as the last one was grown, Savannah moved from the backwater town of McGill in southern Georgia to San Carmelita, California where she joined the police force. After a few years, the feisty woman left the department and opened her own one-woman private detective agency. <P>Since business is slow, Savannah finds time to travel back to her hometown to be a bridesmaid for her sister Marietta who is getting married for the third time. On the day she arrives, her younger brother Macon is charged with killing the honorable Judge Patterson, a power in the county. Now while Savannah knows her brother is a thief and a liar, she also believes he is no killer. With some friends who fly in from California, Savannah leads an investigation where there are more suspects than mourners for the late departed judge. <P> G.A. McKevett has written another fine Savannah Reid mystery only this time the action takes place in the rural south instead of California. Readers receive an up close and personal look at how a small southern town operates. The secondary cast is colorful and eccentric, good for a few chuckles to relieve the rising tension as Savannah closes in on the perpetrator. PEACHES AND SCREAMS is a delightful regional mystery. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Love it

    Im a huge fan of this series. Much more than a "cozy" mystery. Savannah is a really great character.
