Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

Private detective Savannah Reid goes home to Georgia for her sister's wedding, envisioning a chaotic time with her large family, all the while wearing a truly ugly bridesmaid's dress.

What she finds instead is down-home crime, good cooking, selfish family and lots of memories. What this series does best is evoke warm feelings of family and friendship with lots of mouthwatering food served in between . The mysteries unfold and are happily solved with the help of family and her California friends a

Peaches and Screams by G.A. McKevett

This is the 7th book in the Savannah Reid mystery series. In this book, Savannah heads back to her southern hometown for the wedding of one of her sisters. When she arrives, she finds one of her brothers has been arrested for the murder of the town judge. Savannah does not believe that her brother did it, so she sets out to use her former cop/current PI skills to clear his name. She gets some help from her friends Dirk and Tammy. But will

Between trying to find out who the real killer is and getting the peach farm running Nola is busy. This has a good ...more

It was so much fun to read an earlier Savannah Reid book after knowing where the story has gone. It was so obvious even back then that Dirk was in love with Savannah... took em long enough to finally admit it :) As always, a great mystery, funny dialogue and a great cast of characters that make up yet another amazing book in the Savannah Reid mysteries! If you haven't read these books, please do - you won't be disappointed

I really like Savannah - she had the right combination of L.A. big-city saavy and Southern small-town charm. And finally, a cozy mystery heroine who after figuring out the murderer, doesn't plunge ahead idiotically and endanger her life! (Think it helped that she was a former cop). Also liked the relationships between Dirk, Savannah & Tammy as well as the hint of what used to be with Savannah and Tommy. Would definitely read more from this author!

In this adventure, Savannah Reid goes home to Georgia for her sister Marietta's latest wedding. The usual characters (Tammy & Dirk) also visit the small town to help Savannah clear her brother Macon from a murder charge. Most of the action is confined to Gran's house except for the two murders. Profit is the main motive for the murders. The local color supplied by the people and place adds a different flavor to this novel in the series.

I like these books by G. A McKevett. I like to read series books but I

do read other mysteries. That is what I mostly read. I have read books

with romances and mysteries together.

What I learn from reading mysteries is that there are people in this

world that just are evil and sometimes circumstances change good people

to someone that they don't even know.

Bringing the story to Granny's place is nice except for the circumstances of death. Meeting more of the Reid's is a lot to take in but fun. You can really feel the shift between Dirk and Savannah happening.

I love these books for summer by the pool. No smut but good 'get away from it all mysteries. In another life I want to be Savannah Reid.

A fun, lite read for vacation. As a transplanted Southern girl, I enjoyed the trip back home! I didn't know how they'd prove it, but I guessed the killer right away.

Another enjoyable episode in the series. It was interesting to see Savannah at home and working through some of her family issues.

Although this is the 7th in the series there is ample background woven in the storyline. Generally like able characters.
