G. A. McKevett has written a mystery series about Savannah Reid, a Southern gal who has relocated to California and is working as a private investigator. Savannah was once a cop and still helps her buddy, Sergeant Dirk Coulter, on some of his cases.
In Wicked Craving, Savannah and Dirk investigate the murder of a diet guru's wife. It seems like an accident at first, a deadly fall down a cliff, but further investigation proves that there is more to this death than meets the eye. Savannah and Dirk find out that the diet doctor, Robert Wellman, had many enemies, as did his wife, Maria. And with further investigation, Savannah and Dirk turn up some other surprising information. They learn that Robert and Maria Wellman are not what everyone believes them to be, and there is much going on beneath the surface that will later expose some ugly facts about the Wellmans and other people they were involved with.
Wicked Craving was enjoyable. I had an idea about three quarters of the way through the book who the killer was, but I was still kept guessing through pretty much the entire book. And the relationships between Savannah and other characters in the series, such as Dirk and her grandmother, make the book very interesting and enjoyable to read. This book is not the first in the series that I have read, and won't be the last.
