“The author has done a great job on this story, from the “peachy” setting to uncovering a murderer, readers will enjoy this book cover to cover. It is not a longshot to say that readers will be looking forward, with pleasure, to the next Georgia Peach Mystery."

~Mary Lignor, Professional Librarian and Co-Owner of The Write Companion for Suspense Magazine

"Susan Furlong is a gifted writer (many may not be aware she also writes under the name of Lucy Arlington) and this mystery was well crafted and the characters well fleshed out.  I could almost hear their southern accents floating off the page!  Definitely worth a look! Four Stars"
