Book Beginning: Dipped to Death by Kelly Lane

Dipped to Death (Olive Grove Mystery #3)

Dipped to Death: An Olive Grove Mystery by Kelly Lane
Published March 6, 2018; Berkley
Setting: South Georgia

... authorities determine that Eva Knox's ex was poisoned by one of Eva's family's olive oils. She'll have to find the real killer before her family is caught for murder.

Book beginning:
Given the bizarreness of the night before, all in all, it'd been a pretty ho-hum September day in Abundance, Georgia. Right up to the moment Dolly and I spied that odd mop of brown stuff bobbing in the pond.

Of course, the last thing I expected to find was another dead body. 

But, there he was. 

Page 56:
"Did I say I was interested in Buck Tanner?"
"You didn't have to," sniggered Pep.
