If you think going home again is hard, try being a plus-sized PI with a troubled family legacy. But Savannah Reid is no shrinking violet. She's ready for her high school reunion, complete with mean girls, ex-beaus - and murder charges.... When Savannah Reid fled McGill, Georgia, all those years ago, everyone figured the chubby girl from the wrong side of tracks wouldn't be back. But with the hope of seeing her beloved Granny Reid, Savannah makes a triumphant return with her handsome husband on her arm, ready to face the past at her 25th high school reunion. When her old nemesis Queen of Mean Jeanette Parker shows she hasn't changed her stripes one bit, Savannah rises to the challenge - and finally comes out on top. Until Jeanette's dead body shows up in the swamp and just about everyone is ready to pin Savannah for murder.... Of course, Savannah's own Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency comes to her rescue. But even her best buds are having trouble keeping Savannah out of jail, despite the fact that Jeanette has more than enough enemies - and quite possibly the blood of her recently deceased husband on her hands. Savannah never thought going back to school would be so hard. But she's learned a thing or two in her time away, and she's ready to finally make the grade when it comes to the ultimate high school redemption....

To be honest this is the first time that I have listened to any of the G.A. McKevett 'Savannah Reid Mysteries'....and boy, look what I have been missing!
Loved it! Had me chuckling all the way through the book with Savannah's Southern Charm!
Nicely balanced plot and characters, that will make you want to go back for more.
So much so that I'm going to be getting the first in this series...Just Desserts. And work my way through.
And Dina Pearlman did a excellent job on the narration.
"Great story well read! "
The characters are very likable and entertaining. The story line is relatable and engaging. I will definitely listen to another book by this author.
I loved the series, but this one had me laughing and tears all the way through. The author G.A.McKevett has me wanting more. Dina Pearlman is fantastic I just love how she uses her voice with each person in the book. I need more !!!!
"when's the next book coming out!"
I'm going to miss hearing Savanah voice and can't wait to hear about Tammy. binge read the books and now I'm out of books. great as an audio book.
"Not the best of the series, but still fun."
The story was a little slow and boring, but the characters were still fun.
"Loved the book, but..."
Savannah Reid is one of my favorite series and I loved this book but the narrator was so annoying I could barely stand to listen to this. It was monotone and choppy. It sounded like she was reading the phone book.
"I never miss a McKevett mystery"
The characters in G. A. McKevett's books are like part of the family. You've just gotta love 'em.
The beginning scene in which Dirk is making a ton of noise simply reading his paper will probably resonate with a lot of housewives. So will the desire to bat him over the head with his own paper, and of course McKevett tells it beautifully in her usual humor-filled way.
I am ashamed to admit that I would never want to READ this book...I am too entrenched with the characters and the voices that Dina Pearlman has bestowed upon each one is near perfect. My own voice could now never do them justice. I look forward to each book and certainly hope it is always Pearlman who is the narrator.
How can a listener not laugh out loud while listening to one of the McKevett mystery novels. You can't help it.
I was so glad to see another book in the series! Look forward to another one!
The characters are all unique and the Reed clan so real. Any reader who likes reading or listening to a series with murder, sleuthing, friendship, love, temperamental relationships and real people represented would love the Savannah series. I highly recommend!
"More Insight into Savannah"
Top 10% of the books to which I've listened
I "felt" this book more than any of the other Savannah Reid stories. Her emotional attachment to childhoods events was well written.
The end of the book when Granny Reid reveals her birthday "resolution" was my favorite.
I laughed and cried. In prior books laughter was the greater emotion, but in this one, I cried more. But that is not a bad thing.
