"A bordello plus a ghost makes for an interesting plot." That was my Facebook post a week ago after reading only 30% of the book - having finished it this past weekend, my thoughts have not changed.
First, let me make it clear that though the central setting is a bordello, it contains absolutely no sex. It is a fun read where multiple murders over several years provide the additional backdrop for an intense and entertaining story.
Liz Talbot, who, with her fiance, is getting married at the end of the week; but before the nuptials can take place, a bridesmaid stumbles onto a murder, a murder that must be solved if the wedding ceremony can go off without a hitch. With the help of her best friend, Colleen, a Guardian Spirit, Liz, her finance, Nate, and the local police department would need to put the puzzle pieces together. And that would need to be done without getting Aunt Dean, Olivia, or the borders at the bordello killed. Oh, and don't forget the Christmas wedding to which the whole dysfunctional crew is invited.
For the reader looking for a satisfying murder mystery as they prepare for the holidays, light enough to make one smile, but intense enough to hold the reader's interest, Lowcountry Bordello might just fit nicely on the night table.
