Old grudges die hard for the Southern PI when her high school reunion is interrupted by murder in this cozy mystery by the author of Just Desserts.
When Savannah Reid fled McGill, Georgia, everyone figured the chubby girl from the wrong side of tracks would never come back. But now the successful private investigator is making a triumphant return, attending her 25th high school reunion with her handsome husband on her arm. When her old nemesis Jeanette Parker reprises her role as the Queen of Mean, Savannah finally shows her up. But her moment of victory is sunk when Jeanette's dead body is found in the swamp.
As the primary suspect in Jeanette’s murder, Savannah’s rocky history with the local sheriff doesn’t help her situation. But after calling on her partners at Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency, it is soon revealed that the Queen of Mean had plenty of enemies—and possibly the blood of her recently deceased husband on her hands. Now Savannah and her fellow detectives will have to act fast to catch a killer before another victim is crowned.
