I did not like (as much as I wanted to) the first book in the series but this one's surely a very impressive addition to the series.
First things first, the people of Gett have finally 'forgiven' Charlotte for painting the overhead tank green. They also seem to have forgotten Charms' role as a seductive girlfriend in an STD commercial. (Phew!)
There are two mysteries for Charms and Brodie to solve. Both the mysteries are equally interesting and kept me guessing until the end. We also see Charms an

Because I was fortunate to read the first book in this series, this book was alive for me from start to finish. The characters were even more developed than in the first installment of this series and the story was more fleshed out.

Thank you to NetGalley and Beyond the Page Publishing for the opportunity to read and provide an honest review of this book.

Still as Death was an entertaining read with fleshed out characters and an interesting setting due to the whiskey distilleries, even if I suspect it's rare to find two whiskey distilleries in a small Florida town (if it was rural Kentucky, I think it would be more plausible). Still as Death has a faster pace than the first book in this series and I found it fun to read how the relationship between Brodie and Charlie developed.

It's an easy read and well suitable to read during the summer.

This is the second book in this series and I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the first book. It’s interesting to learn about distilleries and the story was easy enough to read in a weekend.

Charlotte almost turned me against her, when she allowed herself to get railroaded by Marcus’s and his shenanigans. Brodie and Charlotte made a hilarious couple, making me thirsty for more of them. This was an entertaining, intriguing, and fun read, especially the bantering and seething attraction between Brodie and Charlotte.

Charlotte Lucky is throwing a surprise birthday party for her grandfather, but she is the one who receives the real surprise when her ex-boyfriend, semi-famous actor Marcus Savage, makes an unexpected appearance. As if that’s not shocking enough, in the middle of Marcus proposing to her, the town’s banker drops over dead and faceplants into the cake. Finding herself accidently engaged, Charlotte is trying to figure out a way out of her predicament when someone does it for her. Unfortunately for ...more

Princess Fuzzypants here: I read and reviewed the first book in the series last week and loved it. Taking care of her ailing grandfather and trying to save the family whiskey business proves challenge enough for Charlotte without having to be caught up in murder investigations. The head cop is one of the Gett family with whom her Lucky family has been embroiled in generational feuds- both being whiskey distillers in the Florida Everglades. He clearly does not like Charlotte. He likes her less wh ...more
Still as Death is the second instalment in the Lucky Whiskey Mystery series. I requested it as an ARC from NetGalley before I had read the first in the series. Which is a bit of a risk. As it turned out, I didn’t like the first book. So with some hesitation I picked up the second book.

It’s a few months after the events of the first book. Charlotte throws a surprise birthday party for the granddad and Marcus Savage shows up in town. Savage is a hot shot actor and former boyfriend of Charlotte. An

This second installment in the Lucky mysteries has Charlotte involved in the murder of her ex boyfriend from Hollywood. I thought it weird that he was referred to as from Hollywood and not LA. This book overall came across as flat and uneffective to me. I could never get a good feeling of the town or the people in it. There were few extra characters to add to the story line. Sometimes these extraneous people are what make the quirks of a story come alive but not this one. It felt as if the autho ...more

In Still as Death by J.A. Kazimer, Charlotte Lucky "Charms" is settling back into life in Gett, Florida. Grandpa Jack is turning 75 and the town turns out to celebrate. Charlotte's former flame, the famous Marcus Savage, arrives in town and proposes to Charms. Before she knows what is happening a death takes place, stealing Marcus's thunder and putting an end to Jack's celebration. When Marcus is found dead, Charlotte and "Grodie" Brodie Gett team up again to solve another murder.

Charlotte Lucky’s ex boyfriend arrives from Hollywood and she is shocked to see him, as she thought they were over when she left him to head home for good. Before she knows it, Charlotte is accidentally engaged to Marcus and can’t seem to break it off...or get the ring off her hand. When Marcus is found murdered in his hotel room though, the engagement is finally off...while Charlotte and Brodie are both on the suspect list.

I enjoyed reading the first book in the series early last year and was t

This is book two in a series which got off to an excellent start with 'A Shot of Murder'. This book is even better!

Charms and Brodie, our lead characters, are really developing and the erratic chemistry between them is wonderful to witness. They either gel nicely or spark off each other, there are no half measures!

The pace is brisk, the wit dry, the action intriguing and the plot ingenious.
Absolutely one for any cozy lover.

Book 2 in the Lucky Whiskey series, and the added age is as good for the series as it is for whiskey. Charlotte Lucky is surprised when her former Hollywood boyfriend shows up in Gett, Florida to ask for her hand in marriage, and then even more surprised when he turns up dead. Of course, she is forced to accept the help of Grodie Brodie Gett to clear her name. Fun summertime reading!

Thanks to Beyond the Page Publishing for access to a digital ARC via NetGalley.

Continuing the adventures of Charlotte, this second book in this series is just as good, if not better, than the first one. A cozy mystery with a twist, you might want to sit down with this book along with a good bourbon or whisky. I received an e-book from NetGalley in return for an unbiased review.

I really enjoyed the mystery, not sure why Charlotte is so oblivious to Brodie's intentions. I do like the interactions of all the different town's folks and Charlotte & her grandfather's relationship. This is the second book in the series and did like it more than the first.

Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for my eARC in exchange for an honest review.

I think this instalment is better than the first in this series and I liked Charlotte better.
It's a highly enjoyable and entertaining read, the cast of characters is fleshed and the solid mystery kept me guessing.
Can't wait to read the next instalment.
Highly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine

I need these two to get together already! Besides that, I greatly enjoyed this book and the series is definitely a new favourite of mine; can’t wait to see what happens next! But seriously, just have them get together already, they can keep bantering even if they’re together!

Charlotte Lucky is surprised to have her Hollywood boyfriend show up to her grandfather’s birthday party. She’s even more surprised to find him dead the next morning.

I enjoyed this 2nd mystery in the Lucky Whiskey series. I enjoy the characters and there’s a surprise ending.

I love a good cozy mystery and this is definitely one of those.
This is the second book in this series and I have really enjoyed both of them. I loved the small town of Getts Flordia, the residents, especially Charlotte and Brodie.
I mean whats not to love about a small flordia town, 2 rival whisky distilleries, alligators, and a town that keeps having murders?
Also a fiercly loyal granddaughter and a town that never forgot that she painted the watertower in highschool, and wont let her forget it
