Lowcountry Book Club by Susan M. Boyer is the fifth book in the “Liz Talbot” mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, July 2016

Lowcountry Book ClubSo many books, so little time

Somebody pushed Shelby Poinsett out her second-floor library window and it wasn’t her husband. At least that’s what Charleston’s most prestigious law firm wants Liz Talbot to prove. Liz must run the spectrum of Southern society, from the local homeless shelter where Shelby volunteered to the one-hundred-year-old book club where Charleston’s genteel ladies are dying to join, to bring a killer to justice.

This was a great light drama, a little different and that’s what made for a book that I could not put down until the last page was read. I love how the premise, where the murder happens off the page, was brilliantly done seducing me with the narrative as I follow along with Liz and her friends in this tantalizing tale that radiates with southern charm. This evenly-paced and action-packed mystery was filled with intrigue and suspense as I had to know who did what to whom and why. The author did a great job in presenting this story with a lovable cast of characters, amusing family dynamics, engaging and witty dialogue and a feel-good atmosphere in this well-written drama. This is one of the best book in this enticingly endearing series and I look forward to the next adventures with Liz, Nate and the gang.
