About the Book

March 29 - April 11

Skye Southerland and Honey Truelove have just finished an interior design job for Sylvia Landmark, one of Buckhead’s most eccentric characters, and their designs are to die for. After a celebration at Sylvia’s home where they reveal the new d├ęcor, including a desk with a possible link to the pirate Blackbeard, Sylvia turns up dead, leaving the ladies wondering if this desk is worth more than they bargained for. Skye and Honey are now suspects in the murder of a woman who had few friends, and plenty of possible enemies. In an attempt to clear their names, Skye, Honey, and Honey’s loveable cousin Ginger embark on a journey to find the real killer, figure out the real history behind the desk, and clear their names before they end up going to jail, or even worse becoming the next victims! With plenty of warnings from Skye’s husband Mitch, and the ruggedly handsome Detective Montaine assigned to Sylvia’s case, these girls still manage to get right in the middle of the investigation, while having time to enjoy all that Georgia has to offer.

Review

I laughed until I cried!!! It took some getting into but once I did it seemed to take right off!!! 
I'm going to have to say Honey was my favorite character. She was the thinker of the group and had spunk, and outgoing. Honey always attracted men whenever she was around especially Detective Robert as she called him. Skye was more like me. She never wanted to be the center of attention. Quiet and shy most times when Honey and Ginger weren't around. 
It seemed the three girls fed off of each other's energy. What one didn't think of the other one did!!
They were trying to clear their name and went against everything Skye's husband and the Detective told them not to do lol!! 
It also seemed that every time they tried to have fun something always came up and they wound up getting into trouble anyway. I laughed mostly at Skye for some of things she done and because they always never turned out the she wanted. Sounds like me also. Seems like some things are just not meant to be. 
Mitch was my hero. He's everything a husband should be!! Kind, caring, and considerate and most of all he's there for Skye no matter what kind of trouble she winds up in. 
Snake and Tiny are something of a different nature altogether. I can see why they would be suspects. For pretty big fellas they sure have some weird nicknames.
I can usually figure out mysteries pretty quickly and this one is no exception but I did get a kick out of the three girls. 
They were very entertaining!! 
I recommend this book very strongly. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Celebrit bloggers.
