Description:

It’s springtime in Savannah, the azaleas and magnolias are in bloom, and Reagan Summerside’s consignment shop, the Prissy Fox, is bustling with customers out to enjoy the beautiful weather. On a day like today, what could go wrong?

As a mortician beautician and housekeeper, Mercedes is no stranger to corpses or messy bathrooms. But the last thing she expects to find in a client’s bathtub is a dead body! Now she’s a murder suspect and it seems like her life is going down the drain. She turns to local lawyer Walker Boone to get her out of hot water.

But Walker has his own surprising connections to the dead man in the tub, and now he needs Reagan’s help to clear his own name—and keep him alive.

My Thoughts:

In this book it's told from Walker Boone's point of view anyone who is anyone knows that Walker Boone is the lawyer that helped Reagan's ex-husband when he divorced Reagan and again in the first book when Reagan's ex was on the chopping block for a crime he didn't commit.

This book starts off right away with a murder having been committed and Walker being at the scene of the crime along with Mercedes a mortician/housekeeper who seems to be on the hook for the murder mind you Reagan isn't far behind in this book she wants to consign some furniture she was suppose to consign prior to his death.

Somebody is determined to silence Walker and he has to have Reagan help keep him alive and figure out who killed the victim Conway Adkins.  Will he find out before he meets his own demise?

Such a good book and I loved every bit of it and can't wait to see what happens next.  Ms. Brown needs to get back at it so we can find out who the killer is and what happened with Boone!! I love visiting this southern community they are so great and I always find myself wanting to go back there more and more frequently!

Thank you for the amazing review. That you had fun with Walker Boone, Reagan and the Savannah regulars sure makes my day. It was a lot of fun writing the story from Walker’s point of view. A guy always has a different take on things, that’s for sure. Hugs, Duffy
