The characters have definitely grown on me, so I'm really enjoying the Savannah Reid Mysteries, in no particular order.

I've always enjoyed this series. Savannah is easily among the most unpretentious book characters you'll ever meet anywhere. She's not the skinny rich girl who so often makes up the ranks of female private detectives. Instead, she's a plus-sized former cop who loves those around her and loves herself for who she is. She doesn't constantly diet, and she doesn't go about wistfully seeking the approval of those who wish she weighed less. The inspiration of her life is her beloved grandma, a woman wh ...more

I went to the Provo Library on Friday and was thrilled to find more books about one of my favorite private investigators--Savannah Reid, a Southern Belle transplant to Southern California. I love to read about strong women who have a sense of humor, love to eat and are comfortable with themselves. Again, I've been following this series by G.A. McKevett for years and it is just as enjoyable as the first one I read. Savannah is a forty-something former police officer who now has her own detective ...more

This series is usually a fun and enjoyable read. This book did not disappoint. I love Savannah and her extended family - most of them helping her in her investigations as private investigator. Dirk, her friend (and possibly more? at least hinted at in this book), is the only one who is a "current" professional - a police homicide detective. (One of her extended family is a former FBI agent.)

Fairly light reads, in terms of being easy to read and not too graphic or grim, but still very engaging an

I love Savannah Reid -- all of her siblings are named after cities in Georgia and all are just slightly dysfunctional but loveable -- as is Savannah. This series is one of those you'll-love-the-characters-and-who-cares-who-dunit!

I somehow skipped over this book when it was "new"' but picked it up at the library--I honestly wish I was able to rate this book a "10" ********** it was THAT GOOD!!
Having been down in the dumps for 2 days before-hand; really needed the humor especially the ending! Whoo Hee

I have enjoyed all her books and have been reading them for a while. The characters are fun to keep up with. Always something different in each book so the plots are not boring or redundant.

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.

Savannah is pressed into service as the bodyguard for actress Dona Papalardo after her assistant is murdered. Her friend, Detective Dirk Coulter and Savannah believe that Dona may have the target. While working to track down the killer, Savanah is also trying to understand Dona, and what compelled her to undergo gastric bypass surgery. Much happens in this well crafted and well written mystery, peopled with the interesting characters readers of this series have come to enjoy.
