Description

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.

    In the fifth book, Liz and her new husband, Nate are hired by a prominent Charleston law firm to find evidence that their client did not push his wife, Shelby Poinsett to death. Now that they are married, Nate is also able to see and hear Colleen, the ghostly protector of Stella Maris. They have two weeks to find evidence before Shelby's husband Clint goes to trial.

    This book was not as intense or action packed as some of the others, but it was still enjoyable. There is a lot of watching, listening and talking in this one. Shelby and Nate work the case together, usually in constant communication. The book club was an interesting aspect to the story. This was not a bookclub like the one I belong to, but a rather, high falutin', social status club. Some of the members were quite intriguing and the fact that they don't all like each other was interesting. Liz and Nate seem to be settling in to married life quite nicely. We do not see much of her family in this book and I miss that. The murder seemed a bit ho hum this time around and I hope the next book is more entertaining.

    The cost of writing a really strong series is a bar that has been set high; a book that would be 4.5 or 5 stars in any other series ducks in with 4. Lowcountry Book Club is a very strong, very solid murder mystery. Boyer does such a good job drawing her characters realistically and she excels at those muddy feelings that take up the majority of life: those moments of moral dilemma, of being caught between a rock and a hard place, of feeling helpless or pressured, without ever stooping to melodrama. I absolutely love her characters. The murder was well-plotted, although it did rely a little bit on total chance for its solution. Didn't stop it being a good mystery though. I love the author's stance (or, at least, Liz's) on controlling development and I think she's coming at it from a brilliant angle; Liz's nightmare was vivid and it's only a matter of time before it becomes a reality for some poor island community. I'm really looking forward to seeing where Boyer goes with this.
