    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Savannah is shaken to the core when coroner Dr. Jennifer Liu appears on her doorstep late one night with a disturbing confession. In a potentially career-ruining move, a remorseful Dr. Liu admits to fudging an autopsy report to keep her friend Brianne's suicide a secret--fulfilling a final promise made before the terminally ill woman administered a lethal drug cocktail. But after Dr. Liu finds the same unique mixture in a second body, she fears the deaths share a dark connection . . Apprehensive about concealing a felony, Savannah and the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency launch a discreet investigation into Brianne's rare condition and the deadly concoction linking the two bodies. As chilling evidence points to an undeniable case of double murder, the agency races to slim down the suspect list and blow the lid off a shifty criminal's poisonous agenda. Savannah only hopes that, like Dr. Liu, her desire to help a friend won't put her reputation at risk--or, worse, land her on the next slab . . ." --

Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1

Medical examiner Jennifer Liu fulfills a promise to her best friend, Brianne, by falsifying her autopsy report, which states that Brianne died of natural causes. Jennifer believed Brianne committed suicide when the symptoms of her rare genetic disease became too much for her to bear. Later, after performing an autopsy on Nels Farrow, Jennifer learns that he died from the same rare combination of drugs as Brianne, leading her to believe the two were actually murdered. Although Jennifer knows she faces the possibility of losing her license and going to prison, she can't let a murderer go free, so she asks PI Savannah Reid to investigate. Hampered by Jennifer's request to keep the investigation secret, Savannah eventually persuades Jennifer to involve the rest of the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency. Meanwhile, Savannah must confront her growing conviction that her marriage is in trouble. This long-running cozy series again injects plenty of humor into the mystery and heightens interest with the frame story concerning rare genetic diseases. And, of course, the larger-than-life Savannah continues to delight. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

In McKevett's poignant 24th Savannah Reid mystery (after 2018's Hide and Sneak), PI Savannah of the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency in San Carmelita, Calif., looks into the suspicious death of Brianne Marston, who suffered from a debilitating disease. Brianne supposedly took her own life after asking a childhood friend, medical examiner Jennifer Liu, to falsify her autopsy results, thereby keeping her suicide a secret. But after Jennifer discovers the same drug mixture that killed Brianne in another body, the doctor comes to believe Brianne was murdered. A few folks, such as Brianne's fiancé and her brother, stood to benefit from her fortune, but Savannah and her associates believe something more complex is at the heart of the case. Meanwhile, Savannah's policeman hubby, Det. Sgt. Dirk Coulter, is acting squirrelly, leading her to believe he's keeping a terrible secret. Clever banter adds levity to an emotionally taxing mystery, and Savannah's Granny Reid offers her earthy wisdom and a shoulder to cry on. Fans of darker cozies will be well satisfied.
