I received this ARC for a honest review.
I have been reading this series and was excited to receive this ARC.
Liz hears about the case of Trina Lynn Causby from her friend Moon who's dating Liz's very good friend Sonny. Moon just knows that Sonny wanted her to tell Liz something about this case and Liz can't mention any names about who she heard it from.
So from the beginning we are drawn into this who killed Trina case.
The clues and suspects wind around and around and just when you're sure you k

Lowcountry Boomerang is Susan M. Boyer’s 8th and Best Liz Talbot mystery so far, in my humble opinion.

Susan’s writing is superb! And the mystery’s fantastic plot is as hard to unravel as a Rubik’s cube.

You are laughing one minute, crying the next, then holding your breath or screaming out loud, then back to laughing. All the way through the story. And you never do figure out who murdered Trina Lynn Causby, a a crusading reporter for a local TV station, until the end of the book.

I loved it! I had to drop everything until I was finished with this book. Private investigator Liz is a truly genuine person. She pursues leads without judgment based on her own set of solid values. It's fascinating to watch her and her husband hashing out their hunches and uncovering answers. Some of the trails they follow seem probable but aren't until finally everything fits with a gratifying snap. This is one of my favorite authors. She makes me long to visit the sites and restaurants and fe ...more

Dedicated fans and new readers are sure to love Lowcountry Boomerang! Susan M. Boyer knows how to create characters for her readers to love, or dislike. Those we dislike may not be the villains of the novel but they sure aren’t loveable and they offer reasonable red-herrings without making us feel cheated. The plot was excellent and complex as always and made for a great read. I think Lowcountry Boomerang has supplanted Lowcountry Bordello as my new favorite.

Ms Boyer exceeds all expectations I have come to look for and truly love in this series. Every book in this series is better than the last.

Someone murdered Trina Lynn Causby and the police seem convinced the killer was Darius Baker. Darius had returned to Stella Maris after retiring as the host if the hit TV show, Main Street USA. Trina and Darius had been high school sweethearts. They were also seen arguing at a restaurant in Charleston the night of the murder. Thanks to Liz, Darius hires Fraser Rutledge III as his lawyer.

LowCountry Boomerang, the 8th book in the Liz Talbot Lowcountry series, is a well crafted mystery with many twists, turns and surprises.

It’s so good to get back to Stella Maris! All my favorite folks are in Lowcountry Boomerang, and there are a few new friends to meet. I’m sure that’s how the new character, Darius, feels when he returns to his hometown. Especially when Liz and Nate go above and beyond to help him out.
If you have read Susan Boyer’s other Lowcountry books, you’ll be delighted with this new entry. It’s as full of the fun, food, and mystery as all the others. If this is your first Liz Talbot book, it’s going to mak

Susan M. Boyer delivers yet again! If you haven’t read any of these books, you absolutely must. The antics that the Liz’s (main character) family get up to are hilarious. Please, avoid drinking anything during these parts for safety’s sake! She keeps you guessing until the end about whodunit. There is no deux ex machina here, though there are plenty of believable red herrings along the way-as there is with any really good mystery. I have also now added a new place to stay and some new restaurant ...more

Susan M. Boyer has done it again!!! It is wonderful to have Liz, Nate, her parents and all the wonderful characters, both on Stella Maris and Charleston back again. Once I started reading, I had a hard time putting it down! Love this series, and Susan does such a wonderful job writing an entertaining story, that has you laughing out loud. She also is able to weave quite the mystery and leaves you on a quest to figure out who actually was the killer.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review of this book. I love, love, love this series, and have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever. It did NOT disappoint. One of the many things I love about this series is how dang smart Liz is. She's also not stupid - if you get the distinction. No TSTL moments here. I enjoyed the interaction with Nate and want to go to dinner at Liz's Mothers house. I truly enjoy all the interwoven characters, especially Colleen.

This was another fantastic trip with Liz and Nate!! I say this every time but this was my favorite book in the series! Helping Darius Baker clear his name and prove he didn't murder his former love may be the hardest case Liz and Nate have ever had to work. Without Sonny or Colleen following along with them every step of the way, this may be the most dangerous case they have ever had to work. There is no shortage of suspects and it kept

Liz Talbot is about as real as it gets, for a fictional character! She worries about her family, her husband, her finances, her neighbors, and her community, just like we do. However, she does it while solving mysteries and communicating with her deceased best friend/guardian angel and enjoying the scenery and cuisine of the lowcountry. In this installment of the Liz and Nate saga, they solve a murder mystery that involves some of Liz's old high school friends. I always enjoy a trip to Stella Ma ...more

Liz and Nate are assigned to the case of a reality TV star, accused of murder.
He, and his multiple ex-wives, maintain his innocence, but it appears that someone in the police department is willing to go to great lengths to keep him in jail, and get Liz off the case, by any means necessary.
Intrigue, plot twists, the charm of Charleston, all standard for this author, as well as laugh out loud scenes with Liz's Mama a

Liz and Nate make a wonderful investigative team with all of their cool little “toys” to help them solve the mystery.

Liz and Nate are back for another nail biter on Stella Maris. A woman has been killed and the killer is tracking Liz and Nate’s moves. Susan Boyer continues her Liz Talbot series with a winner in Lowcountry Boomerang. This book was such a pleasure to read – I love to follow along with Liz and Nate as they tease out another mystery. Boyer’s descriptions of Charleston will have you believing that you are walking the streets with Liz and Nate in pursuit of the killer.

Eighth in the series and one of the best yet! Liz Talbot and her husband operate a detective agency in what has to be one of the most beautiful areas in our country. This case involves an innocent man who it appears is being railroaded into taking a murder rap. Fortunately for him, Liz is on the case. I have loved this series from book 1 and continue to eagerly anticipate additions. Highly recommend.

I was thrilled to receive an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

The Liz Talbot Mystery series is one of my favorites for so many reasons. Charleston is my home and I am always delighted to read books set here. Susan goes into such great detail with the locations that I can visualize each step along the way. The characters are genuine, charismatic, and adorably eccentric. Each mystery has enough twists and turns to keep it interesting, without becoming completely far fetched.
