Review: Lowcountry Bombshell by Susan M. Boyer

Calista McQueen won the lottery. Other than that, her life has paralleled Marilyn Monroe's in so many ways starting with her birthdate and resemblance to Marilyn.

Now according to her psychic, Harmony, some man from her past feels she owes him big. And Calista is scared because the time is approaching fast when her life will coincide with the age at which Marilyn Monroe died or was murdered. This is one coincidence she would much like to miss.

In an effort to prevent her death, Calista hires Stella Maris's own private investigator, Liz Talbot. Along with her partner Nate, her brother Blake- the local law enforcement, and other friends and family, Liz finds that there is more to this mystery than an ex-husband stalking Calista. And it will take all of them and Colleen, Liz's ghostly best friend, to solve it and come out alive.

Aside from a wonderful mystery, there is a pretty nice romance going on in the book. A few sex scenes, tastefully done, make this an adult book.

I couldn't pick out the bad guy for sure until the end, though I had my suspicions. I like the way the relationships developed between Nate and Liz and between Liz and Calista during the course of the book.

It's a good book. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. Lowcountry Bombshell is the second Liz Talbot Mystery. It is expected to be released September 3, 2013 by Henery Press.
