Where is Kent Heyward? The twenty-three-year-old heiress from one of Charleston’s oldest families vanished a month ago. When her father hires private investigator Liz Talbot, Liz suspects the most difficult part of her job will be convincing the patriarch his daughter tired of his overbearing nature and left town. That’s what the Charleston Police Department believes.

But behind the garden walls South of Broad, family secrets pop up like weeds in the azaleas. The neighbors recollect violent arguments between Kent and her parents. Eccentric twin uncles and a gaggle of cousins covet the family fortune. And the lingering spirit of a Civil-War-era debutante may know something if Colleen, Liz’s dead best friend, can get her to talk.

Liz juggles her case, the partner she’s in love with, and the family she adores. But the closer she gets to what has become of Kent, the closer Liz dances to her own grave.



This mystery series is a total must-read! I loved Lowcountry Bombshell recently, and I was only so happy to read Lowcountry Boneyard as well. I adored this book. First, the mystery. I love a good whodunit, and this one was filled with twists and turns in the South, with a prominent family missing a daughter. To wrap up the case, I was really surprised by the events and how they turned out. I won’t give anything away of course, but you’ll want to read this! The romance is a nice sub-plot, but my favorite filler is for sure Colleen, Liz’s dead best friend that is a ghost now that Liz can see and talk to. I love her! Overall, definitely a series you’ll want to get on your reading list!
