Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig – Review

Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig – Review

My Thoughts

Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig is the first book in the Southern B&B Mystery series. I absolutely loved the Southern setting. Savannah, Georgia comes to life in this charming B&B with the Bellandini sisters, Papa Sal, and others.

His brother (and Quinn’s friend) has been arrested for the crime, but Quinn knows he’s innocent…and she isn’t about to stand by while he sits in jail.

The mystery had a great twist at the end. The characters really brought this story together. I loved the touch of paranormal hinted at as well. I thought I had things figured out, …
