 Title: Rest in Peach
 Author: Susan Furlong
 Series: Book 2 Georgia Peach Mystery
 Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
 Format: Paperback
 Source: Received for review from Publisher
 Rating: 4 stars
 Reviewed by: Tina

 Rest in Peach is just so peachy keen. Peachy keen is also the name of Nola May Harper's new shop, where she will be displaying and selling Harper Farm's Peach Products, delicious peachy treats like peach salsa and chutney made by Nola from peaches grown on her families farm. Cade Mckenna is a contractor that will help Nola renovate her soon to open shop and he also happens to be a childhood friend and Nola's love interest.

 It is soon time for the Cays Mill, Georgia Peach Cotillion.   It is a formal ball in which debutantes are presented, all strictly a high-society affair and and the young ladies of Cays Mill are gearing up for it buy purchasing dresses from Nola's friend, Hattie's dress shop. It is to be held at Congressman Wheeler's and his wife, Stephanie's plantation.

 The atmosphere is filled with tension and anger in Hattie's dress shop when the daughter of the “Peach Queen” who was popular in high school, Tara and Nola's friend, Ginny who runs the local diner's daughter, Emily fight over ordering of the same dress. Tara wins the dress tug of war. Ginny becomes enraged at Vivian and vows to take her down. Vivian is found dead in Hattie's shop soon after, discovered by Nola with bloody scissors protruding from her throat, clutching the very debutante gown Ginny and Vivian were fighting over.

 With a small town fill of gossip and innuendo's flying, Nola has reasons to believe that Vivian was as down right mean as the day is long and believes that Vivian  had something on almost every single Cays Mill resident, from the church organist to the ladies in the shop that day.Believing that her friend,Ginny and also a number one suspect could not have done it. But life may not be so peachy for the killer once Nola finds the truth.

 Rest in peach was such a peach too read with a sweet southern back drop and featuring her family farm's tasty peaches. Nola is a conflicted character with a past, I love a great back story, that she has and she was is still tormented by making her flawed and more human to me something I could relate too in the romance department. I'm a fan of drama and Rest in Peach had no shortage of it. The Peach Cotillion is part of the Southern heritage, something I had a hard time relating too but it made a great plot for this mystery and I love learning about. Filled with murder, tension, secrets and friendships, laughs and romance. Rest in peach is a very juicy fast-moving mystery.

  19. Mmmm peaches! Yum! When I was a young girl, we would always visit my grandparents in Texas over summer vacation. She had a friend with a peach orchard, so we always had fresh peaches and peach pie. Whenever I eat a peach, I think of my grandma. :) catlaw2@comcast.net
