It’s election time in Savannah, Georgia, and Judge Guillotine Gloria—aka Reagan Summerside’s mom—is neck and neck in the polls with Kip “Scummy” Seymour. But the already dirty campaign is about to get downright filthy—with one candidate getting buried six feet under…

With her strong opinions and knack for getting into trouble, Reagan is not an ideal volunteer for her mother’s alderman campaign. Plus, she’d rather be running her consignment shop, the Prissy Fox, and eating doughnuts with her dog, Bruce Willis. But when her mother’s opponent, Kip, is found poisoned and her mother is pegged as a suspect, Reagan nominates herself as lead murder investigator.

Reagan is intent on finding Kip’s killer and clearing her mother’s good name, but she soon finds herself on the bad side of Kip’s enemies-turned-suspects. This time, no amount of costumes and makeup can keep her inconspicuous and out of danger. Because the closer Reagan gets to the truth, the hotter things get…


Reagan and Aunt Kiki are at it again!!!   Reagan’s mother Judge Guillotine Gloria was running in an election with some not so nice candidates.  No one is very fond of her competition Kip Seymour, but when he is found dead all fingers point to Gloria.

In true Reagan & Kiki fashion the pair are out to find the real killer and clear Gloria’s good name.

I have enjoyed the series from book one.  I am excited to see relationships forming through the series and glad to see some back in this installment.  I am a big fan of the dog BW and hope to see him with parent living together real soon!!   A great read I highly recommend you read in order  You won’t want to miss any of the exciting things these characters are up to .
