I would give this book zero stars if I could.

I put this book down on page 24 when I read the following sentence: “A stout woman bordering on obese, she wiped perspiration off her second chin before it dropped down to her third.”

What a terribly unkind and fat-shaming thing to write! To have the protagonist have such a thought does not endear her to me. I’m not going to care about what happens to a character with such a cruel streak.

I consider myself fortunate to have discovered this book. I happened to be at the library picking up another book that was on hold and thought I would peruse the mystery section. So glad that I did. The cover just popped out at me and the book did not disappoint. It is one of those mysteries that you just can't put down. Ellen Byron's writing style painted a vivid picture of the Louisiana Bayou. The main character, Maggie, is an amateur sleuth compelled to solve a murder out of family necessity. It was also quite easy to connect to the characters, those that you love and those that you love to hate. Even at 3/4 of the book read, I still had no idea how it would end. Plenty of red herrings to boot. I am excited to continue the series.
