  • I want to move to the Lowcountry!

    Lowcountry Boil is the first in the Liz Talbot Mystery series. However, author Susan M. Boyer has done an amazing job of making you feel as if you’ve known these marvelously interesting characters forever, while at the same time letting you know you’ve only scratched the surface and there is much, much more to learn about them and Liz’s home town of Stella Maris. It’s a terrific story. Liz comes home after her grandmother dies (is murdered??) and even though she doesn’t realize it yet, you know she’s there to stay. It’s home, her family is there (plus a few old frenemies), and she’s got work to do to figure out just what happened to her beloved grandmother. The story is multilayered, laugh-out-loud funny and heartbreaking, all in the same chapter. The characters are quirky but loyal and loving and fierce. The atmosphere is lush and beautiful. And the Lowcountry language – such fun! This may have been my first book in the series but it definitely won’t be my last. I’ll be binge reading until I catch up, and I recommend you do the same.

  • A Great first book in this series

    This was a great mystery, with wonderful characters and a dash of humour thrown in. Private Investigator Liz Talbot is living off island in Greenville South Carolina working with the brother of her ex-husband, Nate. They run their own Private Investigating firm. Liz gets two messages, one from the ghost of her best friend to "come home" to the island (Stella Maris) and the second from her brother Blake, the sheriff on Stella Maris, that her beloved gram has died. She decides it is time to go home, puts her condo up for sale, packs up and heads back to Stella Maris. Once there, it is determined that her gram was killed and Liz, in direct opposition to what she is told by her brother, begins to investigate. She also finds out that she has inherited her gram's property and it is her job to protect it from development. The families on Stella Maris have been there for years and we begin to meet some of them and learn about their secrets and relationships. Not only does Liz's ex-husband show up, but we meet the "love of her life" Michael Sullivan, who married her cousin. There is also a strong pull with her partner Nate. I hope there is more development there in future books. Liz's mom is a hoot, there is nothing that will make a situation better or make someone feel better than having fresh lipstick. She is a southern lady after all. I love that Liz is a licensed PI who carries, her friend Sig is usually at her side. She is not just nosy, but has access to data bases etc. that help her gather information to solve the situation. She has excellent observation skills and a knack for being in the right place at the right time, okay maybe her sidekick, Colleen the ghost, helps her out there. This is a fun read that weaves the life of the Stella Maris islanders into an interesting story. I am definitely going to check out the next one in the series, in fact, it is already on my Kobo reading app. If you are a cozy mystery fan and have not checked out this book, I recommend you do so.

    Thanks for your feedback!
