Private investigators Liz Talbot and Nate Andrews thought they’d put Darius Baker’s troubles to rest—then his recently discovered son ropes him into a hemp farm investment with his college buddies. When a beloved Charleston professor—and potential investor—is murdered, Liz and Nate discover Darius keeps the PIs on speed dial.
A shocking number of people had reasons to want the genteel, bowtie wearing, tea-drinking professor dead. Was it one of his many girlfriends or a disgruntled student? Or perhaps Murray was killed because his failure to invest meant the hemp farm trio’s dreams were going up in smoke?
Though Liz’s long-dead best friend, Colleen, warns her the stakes are far higher than Liz imagines, she is hellbent on finding the no-good killer among the bevy of suspects. But will the price of justice be more than Liz can bear?
Take a virtual vacation to Charleston in Susan M. Boyer’s latest Southern charmer, Lowcountry Boondoggle. It’s a trip you don’t want to miss.
Liz and her husband are private investigators. They have been hired by the rich and powerful Darius Baker. Darius Baker’s son has started a hemp business. When one of the investors, a sweet Charleston professor, is murdered, it opens up a whole new can of worms!
I have loved this series since the very beginning. These books are great for an easy and fun, summer read. And this one fits perfectly into this series. I love the setting of Charleston and the author incorporates the right amount of history into this mystery.
And the characters….as always, Liz’s family is a hoot, especially her dad. I laughed out loud at the Alexis dilemma. Then there is the ghost…yes you heard me…ghost named Colleen. Her antics are sure to leave the reader in stitches.
Need a great, cozy mystery for a vacation…THIS IS IT!
I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
