Title: Dead on the Bayou

Series: A Twin Sisters Mystery #2

Author: June Shaw

Release Date: August 22, 2017

Rating: 2/5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads: Twin sisters and fellow divorcees Sunny Taylor and Eve Vaughn have established their home repair and remodeling business with an eye toward quality and personal attention. So when they’re approached by hunky Dave Price to fix up his bayou fishing camp, they’re more than happy to take the job—especially since they both secretly think he may prove to be more than just another satisfied customer . . . The ramshackle campsite could certainly use a woman’s touch. What it does not need is a dead body—but that’s what the trio stumble across. Clearly, the poor soul was murdered—and once the town tongue-waggers get going, Sunny, Eve, and Dave come under suspicion of the police, not to mention potential clients . . . Now, with their futures on the line, their brewing love triangle will have to wait. Helped—and harried—by the twins’ mother and her retirement home’s cadre of amateur sleuths, the trio starts snooping on their own. But when another dead body turns up, they’ll have to get their hands dirtier than a swamp-bottom snake if they hope to clear their names . . .

My Review: I love mysteries that are set in the south so I thought this book would be a great read for me. Unfortunately that was not the case. The relationship between the sisters was weird, the love triangle was very off-putting and the story just wasn’t believable. The writing wasn’t awful but it also wasn’t great and I found myself losing interest quite a bit.

*I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
