The past is never past. Sometimes it repeats itself. And sometimes it comes back to pay a visit.
Blu Carraway, flush with cash and back in business, never had it so good. Or so he thought.
The reality is his love life is in shambles, his business partner is spending too much time with women half his age and not enough time on the job, and someone close goes missing.
Blu tries to avoid the first and second by focusing on his work, but it’s the third that very nearly does him and everyone around him in.
His business partner goes off the rails, his friends show their true colors, and he realizes that getting closure sometimes means walking away from everything.
With a case from the past gone wrong twice, a loved one in trouble, and an unanswered marriage proposal, it’s a bad time to be in it for Blu Carraway Investigations.

In Bad Time To Be In It, the second book in the Blu Carraway Mystery Series, author David Burnsworth transports the reader back to the sultry lowcountry setting of Charleston, SC for another intriguing Blu Carraway Southern noir/mystery adventure. A year has passed since Blu Carraway and best friend/business partner Mick Crome's last investigative case. But all hell breaks loose when Mick's girlfriend Maureen has been kidnapped! Mick is determined to find Maureen on his own, but Blu and the rest of their team are determined to join in to find Maureen, so they team up and engage in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a person who is seeking revenge for a past case investigated by Mick and Blu. And if that isn't enough, Harmony, one of their news correspondent pals, goes missing after spending time with the mayor on his boat, and whose dead body washes up on shore. It sure does seem to be a Bad Time To Be In It for Blu Carraway Investigations! Author David Burnsworth weaves a fast-paced and suspenseful tale that follows Blu and Mick's investigative journey as it takes them all over Charleston in search of Maureen and Harmony. The reader is easily drawn into this well-written story with its richly descriptive plot and setting, it is filled with enough action and unsuspecting twists and turns that takes the reader on one hell of a thrilling roller coaster ride. As a fan of Southern fiction, I loved the richly descriptive Charleston setting and the surrounding lowcountry SC areas. I was intrigued by the author's creativity of intertwining his previous Brack Pelton Mystery Series featuring Brack Pelton with the new Blu Carraway Mystery Series featuring low country PI Blu Carraway. The author masterly weaves one hell of a new explosive mystery series, where Blu, Mick, and their team embark on another dangerous investigative adventure! With an intriguing cast of characters; witty dialogue and dramatic interactions; and a richly descriptive setting that makes a person want to visit the picturesque city of Charleston, its historic landmarks, and the surrounding lowcountry areas; Bad Time To Be In It is an intriguing tale that has the true essence of a classic Southern noir mystery, but beware it does have a cliffhanger ending that will surely leave the reader wanting more!
Boy, was it ever! A bad time to be in it, that is. Blu’s life is a mess. An interesting mess, but still a mess. All of his life. His love life, his business and relationships with his friends. Some of his problems include murder, kidnapping, an elusive girlfriend and two news reporters. This was an enjoyable book that kept me guessing. I really like Blu Carraway. His house, too. Thank you, Mr Burnsworth. When will I be able to see Blu again? ***Book provided without charge by PICT.*** Submitted by sunny island breezes.
