First in a delicious new mystery series about Eva Knox and her family's Georgia olive plantation.

In the sweet Southern town of Abundance, Georgia, home of the Knox family's olive farm, gossip isn't the only thing that can kill you...

After leaving a man at the altar for the second time in her life, Eva Knox decides to head home to her family's plantation to regroup and soak in some Southern charm. But hiding from her woes is a slipperier proposition than Eva imagined. For one thing, most people in town still haven't forgiven her for leaving local boy Buck Tanner at the altar and hightailing it up north eighteen years ago. For another, a death on her family's farm soon makes her the lead suspect in a murder case-and the sheriff investigating is none other than Eva's old flame Buck.

With the police putting the squeeze on her, it's up to Eva and her sisters, Pep and Daphne, to figure out who could have possibly left a dead body in their olive grove. And they'll have to catch the greasy killer quickly-because it looks like Eva has been picked as the murderer's next victim...

Lost interest

I feel like I've read too many Southern cozy mysteries and this one has nothing out of the ordinary to gain any attention from me. From the few chapters I've read so far it's pretty average story with the pampered daughter, big rich family, quaint, little perfect town and the annoying habit of saying y'all even when there is only one person being addressed.
