In Boyer's first novel of this guaranteed-to-be series, Low Country Boil, we meet Liz as she chases a rabbit through Reedy River Park in Greenville, SC. Of course, the rabbit is really a man dressed as a rabbit. After Liz and her private investigating partner serve said rabbit with a subpoena, they head for a relaxing beer, but the unexpected appearance of a ghost from her past and the sudden news of her grandmother's mysterious death interrupt Liz's relaxation. Determined to discover her grandmother's killer, Liz packs up and moves home to Stella Maris, a small island off the coast of Charleston.
Just like her predecessors, Boyer knows the best southern mysteries occur in small towns with crazy neighbor high jinx and nutty family members to round out the fun. Liz Talbot's tough-girl exterior stirred with ingrained southern charm and wit make her a must-read for any fan of this genre of fiction. Just ask the crowd of fans who gathered last week at Greenville's local independent bookstore, Fiction Addiction, to celebrate the launch of this new and fun character into the realms of heroic southern women who solve crimes.
