One thought on “Just Desserts

  1. Barbara

    I ve read several of the Savannah Reid series before and it s usually mentioned that she once was a police officer on the San Carmelita police force You know she was fired and it worked out well in the end Obviously this series is about her and her private investigative agency I never knew about the details regarding her termination from the police force You learn all about that here in this first book of the series It s also interesting that she meets the rest of her extended family in this boo [...]

    Not really a cozy, but at the same time, not really not a cozy it s one of those in between books that floats just on the edge of the cozy world Needless to say, I was expecting a cozy However, this was a fast paced book that I thoroughly enjoyed I m on board for the next one.

  3. Connie N.

    What a delightfully brash and enjoyable main character Savannah is fresh, fun, tells it like it is, and her heart is in the right place She became a cop for all the right reasons because she wanted to serve the community and help people But she gets involved in a political situation and ends up making some changes in her life She s full of confidence yet isn t afraid to show her vulnerabilities She has good friends and strong family ties The mystery was fairly interesting but secondary to the ch [...]

  4. Gail

    Savannah Reid is a southern raised woman of size and substance She s a cop in a small California coastal town She fields the murder of the husband of a prominent politician and as the story of corruption unfolds, it s clear the victim richly deserved to be dead She uncovers facts that make the cop bureaucracy uncomfortable and gets fired for her troubles The widow hires her to investigate the murder and that s when the fun begins.Told with great humor, glamour, and obsession with chocolate nothi [...]

    Yet another potentially cute cozy mystery wrecked by an author s insistence on obsessing about the fact that the female protagonist is Fat Heavy Zaftig whatever BUT STILL BEAUTIFUL OK, I get it already.I wish there was a way to identify this sub genre before reading the books it is profoundly annoying.

  6. Meg

    I d been wanting to read this for quite a while, and am so glad that I finally got to do so A well written suspense mystery with likeable and intelligent main characters great setting of a small, seaside Southern California town There were a couple of gruesome crime scenes, and straight talk about child predators a separate incident from the main crime , that may prevent this from being classified as a cozy, and yet it wasn t a horror fest A very good read.

  7. Victoria

    Fluff but not really empty calories This is the first of the series, which seems to be MANY volumes long now, and it reads like a long introduction to the characters that form their own PI agency Might read another if I had time But there are a lot of worthy books in my to read queue.

  8. Carol.

    Two and a half stars Unusual for series books, part of the plot line leads to our heroine being fired by the police department, which leads to subsequent start of being a private detective Most books seem to start out with the private detective and then fill in the back story as they go The mystery was partly credible Her skills as a professional police detective were not, however most of her leads seem to depend upon other people s random suggestions such as a mysterious phone call rather than [...]

    I was at the library the other day and one of the adult section librarians asked me if I had read any of McKevett s books I had no idea who she was talking about and said no So she ran into the stacks, grabbed the first Savannah Reid mystery, stuck it with my stack of books on the counter and told the librarian who was scanning my books, She wants this one too Sigh.I really didn t want to read it but in my experience it is better to stay on excellent terms with your local librarians And I can t [...]

    I read about 3 books in this series a long time ago, then stopped for some reason To be honest, I don t remember which of the stories I read I don t think I started with book 1, either, which is typical of me , but I believe I enjoyed them The two details I retained were 1 the titles were all a play on words using foods, and 2 the heroine and her many siblings were all named after cities in Georgia So, this time around I decided to do it right I enjoyed this one, book 1, enough to continue at le [...]

  11. Sandy Betley

    Savannah Reid is one of my all time favorite female detectives She s a sassy southern gal who doesn t pussy foot around and always gets her perp Savannah is surrounded by a huge passel of siblings, a loving granny, a dashing partner, and many other loyal friends who enjoy many crazy cases with her This is one series you shouldn t miss WARNING Once you pick these books up they re hard to put down May be habit forming.

  12. Marcia

    This is the first Savannnah Reid mystery The author refers to the action in this novel in every other Savannah Reid story This book gives the full background on why and how Savannah Reid was fired The characters are not as fully drawn, as would be expected, in this first book, but the seeds are definitely there This is a real must read for Savannah Reid fans

  13. Pam

    I like Savannah and her brassy attitude That she didn t let her police chief boss get in her way of investigating and that he had to use her being overweight to get her fired How typical But it was a great plot twist that I didn t see coming.The secondary characters are interesting, especially her partner and I enjoyed all the little pieces of her southern personality that got thrown in.

  14. Jan

    A fun who done it with a woman protagonist Savannah Reid and several quirky characters in the mix The bookcover doesn t even hint at the storyline and I will check to see if McKevett wrote any .

  15. Jaymi Marie

    great charactersFun book Lots of twists and turns Savanah is a kick I can hardly wait to read the next book in the series

  16. Maria

    Not a fan of mysteries and this book did not change my mind about the genre However it kept me entertained for a couple of hours and I did finish it in one sitting, so kudos.

  17. Alexandra Cain

    I love Savannah Reid I stumbled upon a book in this series awhile back and I love Savannah s sassy southern style The mysteries twist until the end.

  18. Erick

    This book is worth it for the main character She is by far the most interesting part of this tale The side characters are okay, but not terribly noteworthy The story It s okay but not magnificent Just enjoy Savannah Reid and you ll be okay though.

  19. Sharon

    The title is very misleading, IMHO Expected a fluffy, cozy mystery, maybe with a caterer or chef as the main character Instead I was pleased to find a smart mouthed, sassy cop who takes no nonsense from anyone even her bosses A good read

  20. Liz

    A 2.5 really Started off strong, and I love that the heroine is 40 and overweight But as time went on the plot just got sillier The younger sister was what really bothered me, her plot was simultaneously much too silly and too grisly The only reason why I would consider reading another one is I kind of want to know when and how Savannah gets together with the love interest.

  21. Mary Montgomery

    Gotta say I love Savannah Reid This was the second book I read, and the first in the series I m going for .

  22. Annie

    The series has potential However, if Atlanta s going to be in it a lot, I probably won t continue it She was incredibly annoying.

  23. mary

    Savannah is a warm, winsome, and weight bedeviled heroine whose down home savvy can solve the most sophisticated cases, this series is a delight for fans of Diane Mott Davidson s Goldy Schultz culinary mysteries and Miranda James s Southern Ladies Mysterie Nothing special, just a cute little cozy.
