Gwenette said: This was pretty good. I read the next book in this series first, and I really wish I'd read them. Pickens's voice is nothing short of delightful as she develops these characters, all the more endearing for their eccentricities. Another Southern Fried Mystery book. Avery Andrews, attorney, has moved back to her hometown of Dacus, South Carolina. She is setting up her law office. Many interesting things are happening.
Avery Andrews, fired by her law firm after exploding at her own witness, returns home in disgrace. However, she soon gets involved in legal problems of the locals, which begin trivially but soon find her dealing with arson and murder. Avery deals with a colorful cast of characters, most of whom date back to her own high school days, as she solves her legal cases and realizes she just be stumbling onto a second, unexpected career. Pickens maintains a brisk pace. Transitions are smooth and settings described economically. As a career consultant, I have to say that I did raise an eyebrow about the heroine's past and future. The only lines that didn't ring true were Avery's musings over being unemployable. It's hard to find a more marketable field than law.
