McKevett’s middling 21st Savannah Reid mystery (after 2015’s Killer Gourmet) takes the proprietor of the Midnight Magnolia Detective Agency in San Carmelita, Calif., and her husband, Det. Sgt. Dirk Coulter, to her Georgia hometown for a high school reunion, where it seems everything is frozen in time. Savannah, who had a hard childhood and was often bullied, is itching for some overdue revenge. And it turns out that other members of her class have old scores of their own to settle. Jeanette Parker has not changed her nasty ways and has continued to make new enemies, so it shouldn’t have been a surprise when someone decides to get rid of Jeannette once and for all. Savannah, who has a history with Tom Stafford, now the local sheriff, becomes suspect number one. Series fans will gobble up this mix of sorghum syrup and vitriol, but newcomers may struggle to care what happens to the characters, many of whom are too polite to say what they really think about others.
