From Barnes & Noble
Savannah Reid discovers the ugly side of beauty pageants while investigating some waif-like queen hopefuls -- one of whom would kill to be crowned.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Savannah Reid, the Georgia-bred, California-based sleuth, is back in a delicious addition to the series (Sugar and Spite, etc.). Food-loving, witty and down-to-earth, Reid is no typical fey Southern belle. After using her keen detective skills to help capture a gang that's been terrorizing fast-food joints, Reid looks forward to what she assumes will be a tranquil assignment as a security guard at the Miss Goldcoast beauty pageant. The surprise arrival of her spoiled youngest sister, Atlanta, who has flown to California to be a contestant in the pageant, and the subsequent disappearance of Atlanta's obnoxious roommate, Barbara Matthews, make things anything but tranquil. When Matthews is found dead and the evidence points to murder, the cushy job Reid envisioned becomes a fast-paced murder investigation, during which she exposes the self-destructive eating habits of many of the contestants and the often hard-to-believe dirty tricks the girls will play to win. When a second victim turns up, Reid doesn't rest until the truth is revealed in a heart-stopping, cleverly crafted ending. The change of McKevett's usual venue to the Villa Rosa Winery on California's Gold Coast lends freshness, while a bright, eye-catching jacket design should hook browsers. Fans will welcome back Reid's familiar, somewhat stereotypical "family" of characters and will enjoy the new additions. Of its kind, this cozy is as crisp and sparkling as Villa Rosa's best white zinfandel. (Feb. 14) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    Superb Savannah Reid tale

    Mrs. Reid loved Georgia so much she named each of her daughters after a city in the Peach State. Savannah Reid, the oldest child, moved to California, where she joined the San Carmelita police force. Unable to abide by the mountains of regulations, she left to open up her own private investigative firm. Although clients seem rare, Savannah is happy with her work. <P>Ms. Reid¿s latest job is security guard at the Miss Gold Coast beauty pageant, a piece of cake assignment. However, Savannah reassesses her initial opinion when one the contestants, Barbie Matthews, vanishes. Someone abducted and killed Barbie. To make matters worse yet personal, Savannah¿s sister Atlanta was Barbie¿s roommate and everyone knows the two women loathed one another. Not that Atlanta was alone since everyone detested the nasty victim. Still, Savannah and her crew know they must keep the participants safe from a killer. <P> The tragedy side of entering children in beauty pageants is brought home in SOUR GRAPES, a mystery that bitterly satirizes the practice as almost unholy. The story line seamlessly merges a social message inside a strong who-done-it so the reader is educated while being entertained. G.A. McKevett uses humor to lighten a tense plot and making her characters seem even more human, especially the full figured and proud of it Savannah. <P>Harriet Klausner
