When it comes to sassy private detectives, no one's bigger than Savannah Reid. The feisty, full-figured, steel magnolia of G.A. McKevett's acclaimed mysteries knows how to turn every investigation into a delicious romp, even when she's dealing with a bunch of waif-like beauty queen hopefuls who will kill to be crowned...
Things finally seem to be calm and peaceful in Savannah's life, but before she can celebrate, her spoiled, egocentric baby sister, Atlanta, comes knocking. Atlanta's determined to become a star, and her first step is the Miss Gold Coast Beauty Pageant that's being held right in San Carmelita. Savannah is feeling pretty ornery about the impromptu visit, but she's more alarmed about her baby sister's growing obsession with her appearance. Atlanta's had more things lifted, nipped, and tucked than the inventory in a tailor's shop. Savannah blames it all on the beauty pageant, where the competition has become so fierce that someone's been driven to murder. Never one to believe that too many cooks spoil the broth, Savannah soon finds herself heading up behind-the-scenes security for the deadliest pageant in the state.
When her self-centered younger sister Atlanta arrives on her doorstep demanding to participate in the Miss Gold Coast Beauty Pageant, Savannah Reid is hurled into a world of backstabbing beauties who will stop at nothing--even murder--to be crowned. 30,000 first printing.
