First loves are never forgotten. Ever. Certainly not for Tommy “Pancake” Jeffers. His first-kiss, sixth-grade love, Emily, who he has not seen since grammar school, is sliding toward divorce in the artsy Gulf Coast town of Fairhope, Alabama. Longly Investigations has been charged with looking into the finances involved. When Emily doesn’t appear for their nervously anticipated meeting, Pancake’s radar goes on high alert. Her body, along with that of Jason––one of two guys she has been dating––is found murdered, execution-style, Pancake calls in Jake, Nicole, and Ray. Who would have done this? Could it be the soon-to-be ex, who has an ironclad alibi; the other guy Emily was seeing––jealousy being a motive for harm; or do the drugs found in Jason’s pocket indicate a drug-related hit? That world yields a host of suspects. As they peel back the layers of this idyllic community, dark secrets come to light and convoluted motives and methods of murder emerge.


If you haven't read any of this series,  you have NO idea what you have been missing! Jake, Nicole and Ray are the perfect mix of Southern characters- smarty, sarcastic, loyal and a bit rogue! Where Pancake has a blind eye, they come in expecting to find issues with Emily. This pageturner will have you glued to the book, as you wait to see what secrets are being kept, and who will get away with them, or will they? It takes a village, in this case the trio with Pancake to sort it all out and discover the truth! This is a fun read if you're quarantined- it just might make you want to visit the Gulf Coast, when the coast is clear!
