A Liz Talbot Mystery

by Susan M. Boyer

Who could have pushed Shelby Poinsett out her second-floor library window besides her husband? In USA Today bestselling and Agatha Award-winning author Susan M. Boyer’s new novel LOWCOUNTRY BOOK CLUB: A Liz Talbot Mystery (Henery Press; Original Trade Paperback; July 2016), Private Investigator Liz Talbot enters a tight-knit community of Charleston, SC’s genteel women who have gossip to spill, secrets of their own, and a hundred-year-old book club they are dying to join.
Newlywed couple and business partners Liz Talbot and Nate Andrews are hired by a prestigious Charleston law firm to prove the innocence of Shelby Poinsett’s husband, Clint Gerdhart, before his trial begins. As the two begin to dig into the case, they learn that Shelby may not have been the perfect wife everyone thought she was. When Liz uncovers a photo of Shelby and Sonny, a Talbot family friend and Charleston police officer, looking too cozy for comfort, Shelby’s true character comes into question. Did the woman who ran a book club, adopted animals, and volunteered at a homeless shelter have a past that would make someone kill?
The mystery becomes more tangled as Liz is invited to attend the book club that Shelby was president of before she was murdered, but her presence is given a lukewarm welcome. Liz’s main targets of the book club are: Jane, Shelby’s best friend who is reluctant to talk; Delta, a recent divorcee diagnosed with bipolar disorder; Mary, who is advocating for her daughter-in-law to be in the club; and Evelyn, Shelby’s chatty next door neighbor.
As Liz interviews the eighteen members of the closed club, she notices an anger bubbling under these women’s polite exteriors. Through conversation, she finds that the hostile undertone of the book club began when Shelby was named president. Liz is convinced that one of them knows who pushed Shelby Poinsett out her window—or may be the murderer herself.
Liz must run the gamut of Southern society to keep an innocent man out of jail and bring a killer to justice. With Boyer’s authentic Southern voice,LOWCOUNTRY BOOK CLUB merges Charleston charm with a mystery that leaves readers guessing until the very end.
