Event Details

Boyer Lowcountry BombshellBeaches. Southern Food. Small Towns. And Murder. They are all to be found in Susan Boyer’s endearing Liz Talbot series set in Lowcountry South Carolina. We have been anxious to catch up with this series and especially its charming author for a while now, and this month we will get to do so literally: Susan is coming to the library to join our discussion on the second book of the series: Lowcountry Bombshell & to answer attendees questions!!

In Lowcountry Bombshell, we find…

Private Investigator Liz Talbot thinks she’s seen another ghost when she meets Calista McQueen. She’s the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe. Born precisely fifty years after the ill-fated star, Calista’s life has eerily mirrored the late starlet’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 around Calista like mosquitoes on a sultry lowcountry evening: her certifiable mother, a fake aunt, her control-freak psychoanalyst, a private yoga instructor, her peculiar housekeeper, and an obsessed ex-husband. Liz digs in to find a motive for murder, but she’s besieged with distractions. Her ex has marriage and babies on his mind. Her too-sexy partner engages in a campaign of repeat seduction. Mamma needs help with Daddy’s devotion to bad habits. And a gang of wild hogs is running loose on Stella Maris. 

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. ~author’s web site
