A chance to be a part of a headline-grabbing case against a drug company has lured attorney Avery Andrews back to Charleston, South Carolina. She agrees to meet with Mark Tilman, a young doctor from her hometown who seems to have something on his mind. When he doesn’t show, she figures he stood her up and takes comfort in the stilt restaurant’s she-crab soup. But it turns out he had a fatal car accident. Something about the crash isn’t right, and Mark’s father asks Avery to look into his death. Between that and digging up dirt on the wonder drug Uplift, Avery is coming up with more questions than answers.

Of course, Avery isn’t the only one making headlines. Back in Dacus, her mom is on live television confronting a teenager’s dynamite-toting paramour in a hostage crisis at the Burger Hut, Great-Aunt Aletha is mixing it up with the now-toupeeless postman, and the son of a ghost wants vengeance. In short, it’s life as usual back in Dacus, while in Charleston, Avery is forced to face demons from her past.

Cathy Pickens’s first mystery novel established her as a distinctive voice in the cozy tradition. In this second, readers can expect more Southern wit and charm, more courtroom drama, and even crazier antics from the folks back home, all the while falling more and more in love with this endearing heroine.

What had I expected, coming back to Charleston? I twirled my Waterman pen between my fingers, watching the engraved Avery Andrews catch the candlelight. I tossed the pen onto the table, stared out at the sliver of orange-red sun that lit the still marsh grass, and pretended not to notice the waitress glaring at me.
 
I’d monopolized her best table too long, waiting on a date who had obviously stood me up. The look on her face said it all: Wise up, honey. He ain’t showin’, and sittin’ here ain’t gonna make
