… the Georgia gal whose sassy southernisms and love of good chocolate and food make some great mysteries? Savannah Reid stars in A Decadent Way to Die*, the sixteenth book in the series by G. A. McKevett.
Granny Reid raised Savannah and all of her many siblings, who turn up in a lot of the books. Savannah was a cop in San Carmelita, a southern California town, and when she was fired, she decided to open her own detective agency. Her former cop partner, Dirk, assistant-in-training Tammy, and two dear friends now help her with her cases. Savannah is hired to look into the “suspicious accidents” of eighty-year-old world famous doll maker Helene Strauss. Helene’s granddaughter doesn’t think these so called “accidents” are really that but an attempt to kill her feisty, “tell it like is” grandmother instead.
Savannah has her hands full with all of Helene’s family members. With all of this new case going on, Tammy is in serious trouble as well. Savannah has a big heart and does her best to bring justice to those who deserve it.
All of these books have a slight message, and this one deals with abuse. You’ll need a Kleenex for the heart stopping ending.
Each of these sixteen books stands alone, but I strongly recommend that you read all of the books in this fantastic series so as not to miss any of action.
*The previous books in the series are Just Desserts, Bitter Sweets, Killer Calories, Cooked Goose, Sugar and Spite, Sour Grapes, Peaches and Screams, Death by Chocolate, Cereal Killer, Murder a la Mode, Corpse Suzette, Fat Free and Fatal, Poisoned Tarts, A Body to Die For, and Wicked Craving.
