Synopsis: A Talent for Murder is a cozy, southern mystery filled with humor and colorful characters, with a touch of romance thrown in for added fun.

When Kate Spencer learns her aunt's fiancé is two-timing her with an old rival, she has no choice but to pass along the information to her mother. They are as shocked as the rest of the town when the rival turns up dead and the two-timing fiancé disappears.

Making matters worse, the lead investigator happens to be Kate's old boyfriend. If her aunt has any hope of being cleared, the trio must conduct their own investigation. Even if they have to alienate a few friends and tell a few lies to discover the truth.


Review: Another new cozy mystery series, and another impressive author. This book is entertaining, and a great read. It's the epitome of a cozy Southern mystery.

The characters are very realistically Southern. Kate, her mother and her aunt make a great team, although her mother and aunt are more a comedy team than an investigating team. I loved all of their antics!

There are so many possible suspects in this case that I dare you to not back the wrong one at least once as the story progresses. But once the reveal comes, you will see that it all makes perfect sense.

If you love Southern living, gardening, mystery and romance, this is the book for you.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Four stars
