A Savannah Reid MysteryBook - 1998
Private detective Savannah Reid isn't your average crime-fighting heroine. Middle-aged and overweight—at least by society's skinny-winnie standards—Savannah has the audacity to love herself anyway. If there's anything the sassy Dixie belle enjoys more than cooking soul-satisfying food for her friends and family, it's nabbing bad guys and plopping them on the scales of Lady Justice. Having relocated to Southern California, this unconventional Georgia peach and the equally eccentric members of her Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency live to take a tasty bite out of crime in the sleepy, seaside town of San Carmelita. Under ordinary circumstances, deliciously gluttonous private detective Savannah Reid wouldn't be caught dead in a toxin-cleansing, exercise-till-you-drop, eat-seaweed-goop health spa. But murder is no ordinary circumstance, and Savannah has to catch a killer. Of course, to do that she has to stay alive, and she's starting to think this place and its grueling regimen (not to mention the bowls of gruel) will be the death of her. She's wondering what her official Cause of Death will be: starvation, exhaustion, or murder in the first degree.
