Description
Sexy private detective Savannah Reid maybe built for comfort and not for speed, but she likes herself just fine as she is. So the only way she's likely to set foot in a health spa is over a dead body—someone else's—along with a hefty fee to sweeten the deal. The irresistible combination of murder and money brings Savannah to Royal Palms to investigate the death of spa owner and former cult-flick actress Kat Valentina. The medical examiner called it a fatal—but accidental—mixture of booze and a hot tub, but Savannah's anonymous client thinks otherwise. Savanah quickly learns there's no shortage of likely suspects from ex-lovers and would-be lovers, to employees and prior co-stars with unsavory pasts. As for Savannah and her sweet tooth, this may prove to be a costly case. For if the strict regimen of exercise and nasty spa cuisine doesn't kill her, there's a murderer close by who's prepared to finish the job. . .

shortDescription
Sexy private detective Savannah Reid maybe built for comfort and not for speed, but she likes herself just fine as she is. So the only way she's likely to set foot in a health spa is over a dead body—someone else's—along with a hefty fee to sweeten the deal. The irresistible combination of murder and money brings Savannah to Royal Palms to investigate the death of spa owner and former cult-flick actress Kat Valentina. The medical examiner called it a fatal—but accidental—mixture of booze and a hot tub, but Savannah's anonymous client thinks otherwise. Savanah quickly learns there's no shortage of likely suspects from ex-lovers and would-be lovers, to employees and prior co-stars with unsavory pasts. As for Savannah and her sweet tooth, this may prove to be a costly case. For if the strict regimen of exercise and nasty spa cuisine doesn't kill her, there's a murderer close by who's prepared to finish the job. . .

        April 28, 1997
        Transplanted Georgia peach and former police officer Savannah Reid (last seen in Bitter Sweets, 1996) must quell her penchant for fattening foods as she looks for a former screen star's killer in this predictable but entertaining tale. After disco legend Kat Valentina dies at her Southern California health spa, Savannah, who operates the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency, receives an envelope full of money. A note is enclosed asking her to investigate Kat's death, which the coroner has already ruled accidental. Suppressing her sweet tooth, Savannah goes undercover at the spa. She is suspicious from the beginning of those closest to Kat: her ex-husband, now the spa's manager, who's been trying to keep it afloat; a convicted stalker turned masseur; and an outspoken doctor who champions physician-assisted suicide. When she discovers that Kat was suffering from breast cancer and refused to submit to an operation, Savannah wonders if the death might have been suicide. Still unsure that the woman was indeed murdered, she and the members of her agency use their moxie to track down what really happened to the aging movie star. Astute readers will solve the mystery quickly, but McKevett's snappy style may hold their interest to the end anyway.

        April 1, 1997
        An anonymous note to saucy Savannah Reid instigates an investigation into the apparently accidental death of actress- turned-club owner Kat Valentina. This third bouncy adventure (e.g., Bitter Sweets, LJ 5/1/96) for the witty, sweet-toothed heroine is a real treat.
