Pietra “Pete” Lang has her hands full. Her beloved grandmother’s death has turned the family’s annual Fourth of July barbecue into a photo op for eager politicos and the movers and shakers in Florida, who are flocking to Langstown to pay their respects for the town matriarch. Along with the local citizens, who adored Mrs. Lang, have come some rather unwelcome guests - notorious divorce attorney Danny Benedict - and a body in the boathouse freezer.
Danny Benedict never would have thought that a surreptitious visit to the sultry South would be so inviting, but this Atlanta lawyer never reckoned with the charm of Pete Lang and her family’s antebellum mansion. But something is going on here, something more than the divorce he may handle for Pete’s brother, Jackson. Something smells fishy.
Author Geri Buckley has served up a joyfully raucous tale in For Pete’s Sake. Readers will delight in the eccentric cast of characters, and the far-from-obvious mystery of the corpse. Pete is just an average young woman thrown into unusual circumstances, and she copes with grace. Danny is a contemporary rogue, charming and handsome, but he shows his good side throughout the book.
