Blog tour and Review: SOUTHERN SASS AND KILLER CRAVINGS (Marygene Brown Mysteries) by Kate Young


Life has always been sweet on Georgia’s Peach Cove Island, but a case of murder has Marygene Brown down in the pits . . .

For generations, the women of the Brown family on Peach Cove Island have been known for their Southern sass and sweet homemade desserts at their beloved Peach Diner. Since their mother’s passing two years ago, Marygene has been stuck in Atlanta while her sister Jena Lynn has been running the family business. Now Marygene has left her husband and returned to her hometown, where she can almost feel Mama’s presence.

But all is not peachy back home. Marygene has barely tied on an apron when a diner regular drops dead at the counter. When it turns out the old man’s been poisoned, Jena Lynn is led away in handcuffs and the family eatery is closed. Now, to save her sister and the diner, Marygene must find the real killer. With some startling assistance from her Mama’s spirit, Marygene will be serving up a special order of just desserts . . .

Includes Seven Recipes from Marygene’s Kitchen!


Marygene hasn't been involved in the family business - or sleuthing - but she finds herself quite at home in the diner and enjoying the neighborhood, small town feel more than she remembered. She is sure her sister, Jena Lynn, couldn't possibly murder somebody and she is determined to prove it. At every turn, though, there are more complications and twists. Now Marygene has to decide who she can really trust. At least Mama's there to help her along.

This was an enjoyable read with great characters, a town that comes together, and a mystery that takes some work to figure out. Mama's spirit is especially fun and timely - well, most of the time.
