Sunset In Old Savannah by Mary Ellis

In Savannah, Everyone Has Something to Hide
When socialite Evelyn Doyle hires investigative partners and best friends Michael Preston and Elizabeth Kirby to do some routine surveillance on her wayward husband, the detective duo find themselves embroiled in a mystery with more suspects than there are shells on Tybee Island.

Evelyn's husband turns up dead, leaving her as the police chief's prime target. The investigation reveals a hodgepodge of potential murderers, including a scheming business partner, a resentful mistress, and a ne'er-do-well brother. It's up to Mike and Beth to follow the trail of secrets that reaches further than the branches of the moss-draped oaks of Savannah.

As word of the case gets around town, business is booming for Price Investigations. When Mike and Beth hire Kaitlyn Webb, Savannah's newest transplant, their workload eases, but will the ghosts of her past threaten everyone's safety before a killer can be put behind bars? And can Mike and Beth find love as their friendship and faith are put to the test?

Mary Ellis has written twelve award-winning novels set in the Amish community and several historical romances. Her latest, Magnolia Moonlight, is third of a new mystery series, Secrets of the South, from Harvest House Publishers. Before "retiring" to write full-time, Mary taught school and worked as a sales rep for Hershey Chocolate, a job with amazingly sweet fringe benefits. She enjoys traveling, gardening, bicycling and swimming, and lives in Ohio with her husband, dog and cat. Sunset in Old Savannah will release in early 2017. She can be found on the web at: or

My Review

Sunset in Old Savannah by Mary Ellis is book 4 in the series Secrets in the South. What a great mystery. I will say I never got the killer till it came out in the end. Mary did a wonderful job keeping you guessing.Love the characters. They are well written. I love going book to book with them.   
The story of a wealthy socialite Evelyn Doyle hires Price Investigations to find out who   her husband was seeing on the side.  Nate send Michael and Elizabeth to do a surveillance on him. They end up in a big mystery. Now there is a murder to solve and a lot of people who it could be. This is a great mystery will keep you flipping the pages and twist and turns. Give yourself time to read it is a page flipper. Another great book by Mary Ellis.  5 star
