Lowcountry Mysteries (Boxed Set #1)
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
This boxed set contains the first three books and novella in USAToday Bestselling Author Lyla Payne's Lowcountry Mysteries.
When Graciela Harper returns to the small town of Heron Creek, SC, she's looking for a place to hide, drink, and lick old wounds. Instead, she stumbles across old friends, estranged family, a handsome mayor, and the occasional insistent ghost.
NOT QUITE DEAD: When the ghost of swashbuckler Anne Bonny decides that pestering Gracie is how she wants to spend her undead time, Graciela is forced out of a lingering depression. In the real world, she navigates old friendships, cares for her ailing grandfather, and tries her best to shake Mayor Beau’s advances – but when reality crashes into the ghostly past, it presents complications that affect not only Graciela, but her family, too.
NOT QUITE COLD: If Gracie thought Anne Bonny was the first and last of her ghosts, she was sorely mistaken. The recently dead spirit of Glinda Davis, the town’s longtime hairdresser, insists that she was murdered…and she needs Gracie to find out why. The search leads her into moonshining territory, threatens to upset her still-new relationship with Beau, and Gracie thinks she’s in over her head.
NOT QUITE TRUE: With her boyfriend Beau in legal trouble, Gracie can’t sit by and do nothing. She starts an investigation of her own, which is interrupted by a famous Charleston ghost who wants her help to get closure of his own. That, combined with her cousin Amelia’s own mental and legal issues, means Gracie’s hands are all the way full—even when they’re not tied behind her back.
QUITE CURIOUS: The other residents of Heron Creek tell their sides of the story, and illuminate some lingering questions from the first three books.
I'm throughly enjoying this series. Each one include all the things I look for in books. Intrigue, romance, a hint of fantasy, and all wrapped up in a well written package.
Great New Series!
If you are looking for a fun, new series to read, then I highly recommend the Lowcountry Mysteries! When the first book was introduced to me, I wasn't sure about it as books with any sort of paranormal twist usually don't do it for me, but I heard really good things about it so I gave it a try and I am so glad I did. First, the paranormal aspect is isn't weird or scary....it actually brings a lot of humor and fun to the book....I never thought I would say that about ghosts in a book, but they are truly entertaining. I also adore the main character, Gracie, who starts off the series by slinking home to live with her grandfather and get a "fresh" start to her life, she has a tough time doing that, but through it all she's a real, down to earth character who is very relatable. Her band of supporting characters are also equally as charming, funny, and likable.....each having their own story to share. The first book in the story is a great introduction to everything Lowcountry, but trust me, the adventures continue to get better and better as you move through the books, you won't want to put them down!
Pirate ghosts and many adventures!!
~I received each book in this set for free in exchange for my honest opinion~~
I really wish that there were more stars than 5 to give a box set. In my opinion, there needs to be a 5 stars for every book that is in this set!! So really, I give this set 20 stars. This box set is full of mystery. There is trouble brewing all around Heron Creek, and for some reason Graciela is the only one that can do anything about it! This set is full of ghosts, adventures, sexy time, more ghosts, and friends that are there no matter how long it has been since you have seen them. I love this series! You will not be able to put this set down!! If you do not get this set, then you will be very sad!
