    1 thought on “Bitter Sweets”

    1. I like this lady. She's a big girl, a cop turned PI, a Georgia peach not afraid to speak her mind. She eats a lot, but she's no wonder woman who cooks/bakes all that she eats. I relate to that completely. She also has an adorable 83 years old grandma who does an outrageous thing every year. What's not to love?The mystery isn't all too strong, and a couple of things could have been more satisfactory (for example, (view spoiler)[the kid is seven, but she doesn't seem overly concerned about the fac [...]

    2. Having gotten tired of Stephanie Plum and Hannah SwensenI moved onto Savannah. Savannah is pure fluff--and totally enjoyable. I am so happy there are NO love triangles--at least not yetI've only read two and am hoping this stays true.Sometimes you just want to read a book that doesn't tax your mind and gives you a good laugh.There's something more real about Savannah than many other female detectives I've read.I can't wait to read more.

    3. I really like this book. I like the characters and appreciate them going through some ethical questions. Can't wait to read the next one.

    4. I like a lead character who is not perfect and I like a mystery where I'm not sure who the killer is until near the end.

    5. I collected and read this series when it first came out but some of my books got lost in a move and this must have been among them. A low e-book price encouraged me to reread it and I enjoyed it a lot. This is a mystery about a female private detective and her ex-partner cop friend. No romance here, though I think it appears later IIRC. I enjoyed the story and figuring out who did it. The solution may have been a bit pat but it was a pleasant read, and a nice change from books packed full of rec [...]

    6. What a find! This Savannah Reid series is a winner for me. I love to read series and often the first book is a "meh" but these books are so good. Love the plots and the characters. Will definitely read more!

    7. New PI and owner of Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency finally gets her first case and it's a real crime. A mother is murdered by her ex-husband who steals their daughter, then he is murdered and the child is missing. Race is on to find the child and the murderer.

    8. This is the first novel that I have read by this author and I must confess that I kept moving it aside as neither the title nor the paperback book cover intrigued me which is odd as a former librarian I certainly know better than to "judge a book by its cover" and although I'm not a cake eater, I do love chocolate. As Stephen Cosgrove said, "Never judge someone by the way he looks or a book by the way it's covered; For inside those tattered pages, There's a lot to be discovered." My book copy wa [...]

    9. Did not like this book, the author introduced the villains POV, which I hate.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find a [...]

    10. A mash up of some pretty dark themes for a "cozy mystery". War crimes, torture, domestic violence, child molestation, graphic descriptions of crime scenes it's all a bit much for a book that seems to want to be a light hearted mystery. Aspects of the plot are too far fetched to suspend disbelief. A medical examiner is not going to share autopsy results with a private investigator. A private investigator does not have the power to arrest people and they don't decide who gets charged with crimes. [...]

    11. While Savannah has some good quips to throw about in this book, it's not enough to offset the negatives:-- Too much info being "synopsized" for us by the author; not enough showing. -- Not enough romantic interaction with her former cop partner, who 99 percent of the time in this book shows his bad traits.-- The gay couple--who are ex-FBI--seemed-over-the top gifted and good-looking in the first book, and they don't become more human in this book (the second in the series). Similarly, Tammy, the [...]

    12. Savannah Reid, the bodacious former cop now PI, returns for a second adventure. Finally, she has a case; she's hired by a brother to find his sister who was adopted at a young age. Savannah does a great job and leads him to her. Unfortunately, he is not the brother but the woman's ex-husband. Before she can make it good, Lisa and her daughter are kidnapped by the ex-husband. Savannah along with her friends and former partner track down the kidnapper who is now a killer. Impelled to make it right [...]

    13. savannaha is hired by a brother to find his long lost sister. but despite her checking on him, he turned out to be her x husband. he kidnapped her and their daughter. he killed her and savannaha felt very guilty and is out to find him and bring him to justice and save the daughtere dad of the murdered woman tracked him down and killed him. he took his granddaughter to safety. but when savannaha confronted him, he had a heart attack and later diedthe granddaughter went to live with her uncle.

    14. I couldn't finish this one. I've enjoyed all of the Savannah Reid mysteries, but something about the torture of a mother when her child was nearby, I just couldn't finish it.It probably has a happy ending, but the mother ends up dead so it can't be too happy. (or at least I think so, I didn't get past that, I was just sick to my stomach.)Luckily, none of her other books are like this.She has a great list of characters, they are funny and enjoyable.This one just hit a little too close to home.(I [...]

    15. This is one of the only series that I have read out of order, and it definitely gets better as it goes on. The first book (Just Desserts) was good, but had more sexual undertones. This book is also good, but it had a religious undertone. In the later books there is more of a focus on the actual mystery, and on character development. It's nice to see Ms Mckevett grow as an author through these books.

    16. Yeah, I don't know how I feel about this book. On the one hand, some pretty dark things are going on, and I kind of like that. On the other hand, it didn't hold my attention, I think Savannah made some questionable decisions given her experience, and the characters weren't particularly interesting. While it had some dark themes--war crimes, child molestation, domestic violence--none of them were really given much attention. Everything was relatively glossed over.

    17. This is a fun series. I love Savannah and her Granny Reid. This book was fantastic, I think Savannah was portrayed as a true detective in this book. She was wronged and that resulted in the death of an innocent person, however, she kept going and had no plans at stopping until she solved the murder.

    18. This is the second of the series. The characters are well described and consistent, but the action has some gaps. The brother Bryan pops up a couple of times without smooth transitions. It seems the characters race from one place to another and from one theory to another. Savannah's grandmother adds a delightful and stablizing influence to the story.

    19. 3.5 really. Don't know why, but only one character actually appealed to me. The rest were just not doing it for me, and that included the main character. The mystery was . . . . For the first time in ages, I knew who did it fairly quickly and that just made the detectives more annoying. At least it wasn't a DNF.

    20. Such a talented author! The storyline kept me guessing, the characters were well developed and hilarious! This is the first of this series I have read, and you really don't have to read it to enjoy this book, but now I really need to read it!!! Caution: some swearing. But overall, a great read!

    21. After reading Just Desserts, I was excited to get started on this book, and, just like the first Savannah Reid book, I would give this book 4 1/2 starts if I could. I was able to put it down, but just barely!

    22. The characters in this book are so entertaining to me, I feel like they are family. Granny Reid, Dirk in his own weird way, Tammy is bursting at the seems, John and Ryan- what a pair. Throw in southern charm, food and mystery around locating a missing sister, another great book to read.

    23. Not a bad plot, and not bad characters, but it just doesn't flesh out well. My biggest objection comes at the end. There is no way a child's reaction to the trauma she had been through would be as minimal and as quickly resolved. Don't think I will actively look for others in this series.

    24. Savannah, ready to start a new life path jumps right into this missing person caseI love all the twists to the plot in the 2nd of this series of Mysteries. Love that she has everyone she needs to keep her on the right track.

    25. I like this series, but I don't think she needs to remind us all the time about Coulter attitude. I think a PI would have checked the client out further when no one would give her details about the person she was looking for.

    26. This is the second of the series. I liked it. Audio version has a great narrator which really helps to bring a book to life.

    27. Fun little mysteries. Intriguing and they keep you wondering. I've also read Killer Calories and that was fun too. Good mystery author.
