Good entry in the series this time set at a Beaty pageant in a vineyard Of course one of Savannah s sisters is there and competing in the pageant I thought the mystery was done well and I Valentino like the banter between the characters 35 Savannah and Ryan have been hired for security at the Miss Gold Coast beauty pageant taking place at theocal winery Unfortunately her younger spoiled sister Atlanta pops is to stay with Savannah as she has used Savannah s address as her own and has entered the pageant as a CA girl Sh Like a grown up episode of Toddlers and Tiaras at a winery Makes for a funny combo While I agree with some of the comments that Savannah s siblings are pretty annoying Atlanta was pretty tame in this one and added some good things to the story including a PSA on eating disorders A really good addition to the series I would have stopped reading this book fairly early but it was the only book I had with me at the time I did get sort of interested in it At east interested enough to finish it but I don t think I l read another in the series One of my main problems with it was the whole emphasis on eating usually eating arge uantities of unhealthy food Savanna Reid is an ex cop now working as private investigator I m not sure the ocation of this story but I m thinking it is on the West Coast probably California When it comes to sassy private detectives no one's bigger than Savannah Reid The feisty full figured steel magnolia of GA McKevett's acclaimed mysteries knows how to turn every investigation into a delicious romp even when she's dealing with a bunch of waif ike beauty ueen hopefuls who will kill to be crownedThings finally seem to be calm and peaceful in Sa.
