Where: Cays Mill, Georgia
I was going to a debutante ball...can you believe it...me...yeah neither could I lol. But alas I was...heading to Georgia to visit Nola and see her almost finished shop Peachy Keen. Figured I better visit now before she gets too busy. Upon arriving she told me to put down my stuff...that we were headed to the dress shop with Ginny. Her daughter Emily was going to be attending the annual Peach Cotillion, and her dress was ready to be ...more
Rest in Peach is just so peachy keen. Peachy keen is also the name of Nola May Harper's new shop, where she will be displaying and selling Harper Farm's Peach Products, delicious peachy treats like peach salsa and chutney made by Nola from peaches grown on her families farm. Cade Mckenna is a contractor that will help Nola renovate her soon to open shop and he also happens to be a childhood friend and Nola's love interest.
It is soon time for the Cays Mill, Georgia Peach Cot ...more
When I read the first book in this series, PEACHES AND SCREAM, I knew this was a series I could really sink my teeth into. And as delicious as that book was, author Susan Furlong has bumped up the recipe and made REST IN PEACE even tastier!
Ms. Furlong captured the pageantry, and insanity of the southern cotillion perfectly. I could almo ...more
I am not from the south and have never attended a cotillion, but from everything I have seen and read I know the debs and especially their mothers can be pretty cutthroat. So when one of the mothers was found dead, stabbed in the throat with a sewing shears, I must say I wasn’t surprised. Beyond that this story was full of surprises.
Our victim, Vivien Crenshaw, mother of debutante Tara, gets into a spat with Nola’s friend Ginny over a dress. Seems the owner of the dress shop m ...more
Wow, this is the third awesome book I've read in a row. When Nola's friend Ginny becomes the prime suspect in a murder Nola finds herself dragged into an exciting and dangerous web of lies, blackmail, and half-truths. Will Nola tear through the web and save her friend, or will she fail?
I absolutely loved this book. Honestly the first book was si ...more
REST IN PEACH is the second book in the Georgia Peach Mystery series by Susan Furlong but it’s the first book I’ve tried of this author. As you can expect, this one has a very Southern feel to it, which I really enjoyed. Our heroine is Nola Mae Harper and she’s an absolute sweetheart. However, I did notice that we don’t actually get to see much of her personality shine through. I don’t know if that’s the case because I’m starting the series with the second book or if she’s just not establish ...more

A wonderful follow-up to Peaches and Scream.
Be sure to read the chapter heading for hilarious Debutante Rules. They are great.
Nola Mae is trying to finish the renovation to her store so she can open her new shop, Peachy Keen, when Ginny Wiggins, who owns Red's Diner with husband Sam, ask her to go with her and her daughter, Emily to Hattie's Boutique to pick up Emily's Peach Cotillion dress. Emily and Tara Crenshaw are anxiou ...more
This charming story is the second installment in Furlong’s Georgia Peach Mystery Series, but can be read as a standalone.
A cotillion is a huge deal to a young Southern lady, but to Nola Mae Harper it means clearing her best friend, Ginny, as a prime murder suspect. Vivien Crenshaw, mother of the town’s spoiled-rotten Peach Queen, has been stabbed to death and she ...more
Nola Mae is getting ready for the opening of her new shop Peachy Keen, and is helping with the annual Peach Cotillion. Debutantes and a dress mix up kick off this story which leads to murder.
The whodunit in this story kept me guessing right up to the end! The series has interesting characters and the town is well described; you will want to visit! A top notch cozy!
Past secrets, romantic possibiliti ...more
Rest in Peach was a nice sequel. As I was already familiar with the town and the characters it was easier to get into this book. It has a similar set-up as the first book with the big event planned which will take place towards the event of the book. So the progression of events and build-up was a tad similar to the first one, but the story was very differently, so I still enjoyed it. The peach touched to this story and the events in the book are ...more

Who doesn't love the traditional debutante ball? Being from the south, I enjoyed reading all about it. Throw in a good mystery and I'm hooked. The whole time I was reading, three was one character I hoped wasn't the killer. If you are looking for a great read, I highly recommend this series. ...more
