LOWCOUNTRY BOIL (#1)

private investigators, paranormal, Southern fiction

Liz Talbot Mysteries

PI Liz Talbot is a modern Southern belle: she blesses hearts and takes names. She carries her Sig 9 in her Kate Spade handbag, and her golden retriever, Rhett, rides shotgun in her hybrid Escape. When her grandmother is murdered, Liz high-tails it back to her South Carolina island home to find the killer. Fit to be tied when her police-chief brother shuts her out of the investigation, she opens her own. Then her long-dead best friend pops in. When more folks start turning up dead in this small seaside town, Liz must use more than just her wits and charm to keep her family safe, chase down clues from the hereafter, and catch a psychopath before he catches her.

LOWCOUNTRY BOMBSHELL (#2)

Liz Talbot thinks she’s seen another ghost when she meets Calista McQueen., the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe. Calista’s life has eerily mirrored Marilyn's—and she fears the looming anniversary of Marilyn’s death will also be hers. Before Liz can open a case file, Calista’s life coach is executed. Suspicious characters swarm like mosquitoes: her certifiable mother, her control-freak psychoanalyst, her peculiar housekeeper, and an obsessed ex-husband. Liz digs in to find a motive, but she’s besieged with distractions. With the heat index approaching triple digits, Liz races to uncover a diabolical murder plot in time to save not only Calista’s life, but also her own.

And the spirit of a Civil-War-era debutante may know something if Colleen, Liz’s dead best friend, can get her to talk. Liz juggles her case, the partner she’s in love with, and the family she adores. But the closer she gets to the truth, the closer Liz dances to her own grave.

LOWCOUNTRY BORDELLO (#4)

The Charleston streets are dressed for the holidays in sophisticated Southern style. The high class bordello in a stately historic home is certainly no exception.

With her wedding back home on Stella Maris less than a week away, Liz must juggle one elderly madam, two ex and future in-laws, three ghosts in the bordello, four giddy bridesmaids, five lovely courtesans, six suspicious patrons…and a partridge in a pear tree as she tries to keep her bridesmaid out of jail and live to walk down the aisle.
