Where is Kent Heyward? The twenty-three-year-old heiress from one of Charleston’s oldest families vanished a month ago. When her father hires private investigator Liz Talbot, Liz suspects the most difficult part of her job will be convincing the patriarch his daughter tired of his overbearing nature and left town. That’s what the Charleston Police Department believes.
But behind the garden walls South of Broad, family secrets pop up like weeds in the azaleas. The neighbors recollect violent arguments between Rivers and her parents. Eccentric twin uncles and a gaggle of cousins covet the family fortune. And the lingering 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 what has become of Rivers, the closer Liz dances to her own grave.
My Review: 5 out of 5 stars. This is book #3 in this series. And I absolutely LOVED it. I stumbled across Susan’s 2nd book through Book Bub last year I think. I picked it up and realized it was #2 in the series. So I had to go find Book #1 because I can’t start a series right in the middle. Anyways…it’s a definite must read in my book. Love Liz, the main character and all the supporting characters in the books.
