I am always on the hunt for a good "fun mystery" series. I picked this book up on a whim while searching for another book. I was NOT disappointed! This was a great story with interesting twists and turns. It was enjoyable to share in the characters' lives. Savannah is a great sleuth/heroine and a wonderful role model. I would recommend this book to anyone, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

I first started reading this series YEARS ago, and not disappointed now, getting back with Savannah Reid.. Silly and questionable storylines, still good to have an enjoyable group of characters to think about. DaU from Cudahy, Wisconsin (the other East side by the Lake)

First in a series I decided to check out after seeing McKevett's latest in a recent batch of ER book offerings. I was not disappointed and will continue on with the series. The characters were very likable, and a offers such an eclectic group that I look forward to getting to know better. The story moved along quickly and provided a quick escape.

Detective Savannah Reid and her partner, Dirk, are just celebrating catching a fugitive when a shocking murder rocks the San Carmelita, CA area. Put on the case solo, Savannah finds herself immersed in a sensationalized case that causes a media frenzy. Will she be able to mark this case solved or will she be sent packing before the killer can be caught? Ok. I admit it. After about page 188, I pretty much skimmed this book more than I actually read it. I couldn't help it. Everything from the dirty cops to the fact that I was looking for a cozy and this was so not it, annoyed me. Even the main character, who is the most likable in the book, got on my nerves. She's supposed to be tough and sarcastic. At least that's what I think the author was going for. I didn't find her to be either one really. Then there was the sister, Atlanta. Ugh. Luckily by the time her entrance took place I was already skimming pages so skipping over her parts (a must if you opt to read this) was easy. The mystery was bland. The writing style was ok. And the rest of the characters ranged from forgettable to "I'd love to punch them in the face" annoying. When it got to the "too fat" part of the story, I just about gave up completely. I don't really know why I even continued to skim at that point since I really didn't even care who the killer was. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I liked the cover. I would hope future novels in this series (I hear there's 22 of them) are better than this one, but I won't be bothering.
