CherylB19875 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!June 19, 2017CherylB1987Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sunset on Old Savannah is book four in Secrets of the South Mysteries by Mary Ellis. This book is an excellent read. There are plenty of action packed happens throughout this story. I was on the edge of my seat this story was so good. I love the faith, love, devotion, heartache and suspense in this story. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 4.5 stars!

This story moves along with twists and turns and kept my interest piqued. I picked it up to read every chance I got. Another new investigator has been hired by the end of the book, so hopefully this means there will be a fifth book in the series!
I was given a complimentary copy of the book by Harvest House but was under no obligation to even review it.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Loved the Town as Much as the MysteryJune 2, 2017Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have read most the books in this series, and Mary Ellis never ceases to keep me entertained. I have enjoyed all of Price Investigations Mysteries, but I think this one comes close to being one of my favorites.
Why? Well, I am not quite sure I can pinpoint that. Maybe it is the Savannah/Tybee Island setting, those moss covered oaks... Just recently, I was blessed to spend a couple days there, so that certainly gave me a better appreciation for the location. I could totally picture the scenery and areas they were driving too as she mentions going on and off the Island, even though I wasn't familiar with all the exact places she talked about. (Sadly, I didn't get a chance to visit the historical district while I was there, but I read about it.)
Beth, the senior investigator, is a character. She's spunky, courageous and knows her stuff, yet, more often than not, she sticks her foot in her mouth, rocks the boat with law enforcement, and wants to hide her head in the sand. Michael on the other hand, is a rookie investigator taking the lead. He has a good head on his shoulders, and often keeps Beth out of the hot spot. Those two are made for each other, whether they stay on that path or not, is still anyone's guess. There is some faith content, but it is by no means "preachy".
Mary did a great job of keeping me guessing during most of this novel. She offers quite a few choices for murder suspects, yet it is not easy to pin point which one may have committed the crime. Just the kind of mystery I enjoy! She also puts a nice spin on true Christianity, love, and forgiveness. I think it gives the reader lots of food for thought.
Mary introduces us to a new character in this book, whom I hope will be the main person in the sequel - if there is one (fingers crossed here). I can't say there was anything specific, I totally hated or disliked. Beth's attitude did get on my nerves a little at times, but knowing it stemmed from her insecurities helps a little in letting it pass.
For those of you who haven't read this series at all, no worries, each book is somewhat of a stand alone. Of course the main Price Investigation characters carry over in each book, so it's nice if you know them in advance, but even if you don't you can pick up anywhere.
I would recommend this book for mystery lovers. It does involve an affair, so if that is sensitive nature to you then you may want to avoid it, but other wise it is great entertainment.
Disclosure: I was blessed with a free copy of this book by Harvest House Publishers to read. I was not required to review this book in a positive manner. All opinions are my own.
GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Twisted MindsMay 22, 2017GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The fourth book in the Secrets of the South Mysteries finds Mike and Beth in Savannah, Georgia. The funny thing to me is that I have been there twice and never knew all that I was missing. Of course, I am forever grateful that I missed out on the mystery, murder, and mayhem that kept Mike and Beth busy, even though I enjoyed reading about their experiences. The rich lady whom they had gone to help find out if her husband was cheating on her was quite a character. It seemed Beth would never get away from her with her frequent calls. I have also been to Tybee Island but I only went to see the lighthouse. The descriptions of the home alone makes me want to go back and find that house. It sounded like such a beautiful setting with amazing views of the ocean. What appeared to be a growing relationship between Mike and Beth was quite interesting to follow. I think I recall Mike telling Beth that they were no longer in the eighth grade but at times they acted more like school kids than adults as they seemed to tiptoe around each other, unsure about the next step. Frankly, I found that more real than some stories I read where the characters are experiencing all kinds of tingling in their spines, jolts in their bellies, and toes turning up just from a single touch. The assignment for Mike and Beth becomes much more involved than finding proof that a husband has a girlfriend on the side. As the story ended, I wanted to learn that there is another book in the series, but I was left in suspense. One can always hope.

Their adventures and misadventures kept me glued to the book, and the plots were believable and interesting.
