Product description

Product Description

When every member of a rural Sweetwater family is murdered in their beds, Maury County sheriff Bob Satterfield calls on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for help. While Savannah’s husband, TBI agent Rafe Collier, heads to their shared hometown to help the sheriff figure out who and what is behind the grisly massacre, Savannah goes along to assist her old friend Yvonne McCoy’s quest to gain ownership of Beulah’s Meat’n Three restaurant.

But when Beulah Odom’s death turns out to have been murder, suddenly Yvonne’s on the hot seat. And with the sheriff occupied elsewhere and Beulah’s family gunning for Yvonne, it’s up to Savannah to figure out the truth before her old friend lands in jail... or six feet under.

Like the previous books in the series, I found book to be a good read. The pace is good and the storyline interesting. There were more typos in this story which was a little distracting and sometimes I had difficulty believing Savannah could be so dumb. Other than that, the novel is a fun read and I'd recommend it as worth the time investment.

I've read them all, this one being the 14th in the series, and enjoyed Savannah's antics once again. It's not the best in the series but for fans of Savannah it's a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some major surprises in this one! 9 March 2017
By Illinois Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the 14th book in the series! What is so amazing is just when you think Savannah and Rafe have had every problem in the book, Ms Bennett comes along with a new book and a whole different set of problems! This time Rafe is called by the Sheriff of Sweetwater and asked if he could come and help him solve a murder of six family members. Savannah doesn't want to be left behind, so off they go to gruesomeness unknown. Along the way Rafe tells Savannah that the family that has been killed happens to be the same boys that beat him up the one time Savannah made Todd give Rafe a ride from Columbia to Sweetwater when they were in high school.
On their way to the murder scene, Rafe decides to stop and check on the third brother only to find him dead as well. All that is left living is the starving dog chained up to the trailer where the victim lived.
As Animal Control comes to get the dog, Savannah goes in to town to support her friend who is at the courthouse. There is a hearing going on that is to prove/disprove the mental wellness of her friend's recently deceased boss. The relatives claim she was incompetent and her will should not stand. Why? Because instead of leaving her restaurant business to the widow and daughter of her late brother, the business was left to Savannah's friend who was an employee at the restaurant.
Meanwhile, Savannah's very proper mother hasn't gotten over the news of her former best friend having a child with her husband before they were married. Now she isn't speaking to her friend of over 30 years.
If this isn't enough, remember Savannah is 7 months pregnant and rescues the dog from the murder scene. Amongst the horrors of murder, the audacity of the relatives accusing an innocent woman of manipulating and even murdering her beloved boss, and the dog's antics and Savannah's reactions to it, well there are some funny moments as well as a lot of angst and evil.
There is a good balance between the characters, and old enemies don't seem to be quite as negative about Rafe as in the past. I like the feeling that not only Savannah and Rafe are becoming a family, but her family is also becoming his family as well. This mystery took place in the Sweetwater area, and the concerns and people from Nashville don't come into play this time. It makes for a good change of pace from the last book. The ending is a huge surprise.
I think the series is getting better as time goes on. But when will that baby get here? It must be the world's longest pregnancy!

Who hated an entire family enough to murder all seven members? That’s the question Rafe must answer after being summoned by the Sweetwater sheriff to assist in the homicide investigation. The fact that the members of this particular family weren’t always upstanding, law-abiding citizens makes the investigation even more difficult. Savannah decides to accompany Rafe so she can check in on her mother, who has been dealing with a major betrayal, and to see how things are going for old friend Yvonne McCoy. Yvonne has inherited the restaurant where she works and has now been accused of murdering her boss to get ownership. Of course, knowing Savannah as we do, she’s unable to stop herself from asking questions and getting involved in both cases. When the killers start taking shots at the investigators, Rafe knows his timeline for finding the murderers just got shorter.

I enjoyed Bad Debt, Book 14 in the Savannah Martin Mystery series. It’s always great spending time with Savannah and Rafe. They make such a great couple (my favorite book couple, actually). Rafe does what is necessary to keep Savannah out of harm’s way, but he treats her as an equal and always listens to her ideas and theories. I just love that. I also love seeing how Rafe is slowing but surely winning over Savannah’s mother, Margaret—she has come a very long way!

I’m already looking forward to the next book in this appealing series. Hope I don’t have long to wait! Happy reading!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 16 March 2017
By Jeanie Jackson - Published on

I adore this series and Bad Debt is the best book for the moment. I say that because this is one of those series that I love so much that the book I just read is always my favorite. Jenna Bennett sold me on Savannah long before she became the strong women she is today but the growth that she has allowed Savannah is part of what makes this series special. Now we get to see that strict minded (often narrow minded) southern mother of hers begin to recognize that there is a whole other world out there from the one she was raise in and to marvel as she becomes open to the changes that come into her life; Rafe Collier, bad boy from the other side of town and her new son-in-law, is not just allowed in her home, he is welcomed with open arms!!! In Bad Debt, Margaret Martin gets the third of 3 really big shocks in her recent life while she is still processing the big one from a few months earlier.
As readers are likely to know Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Agent Rafe is called back to their home town when some kills 7 members of a family in cold blood. Although less directly involved, Savannah can't keep from doing her bit to solve this terrible crime and one of her newer friend is facing trouble back home, so that gives our very pregnant amateur sleuth something safer to be curious about.
If you don't read this book for any other reason, check out Rafe Collier, one of the sexiest guys in fiction. Sex is behind closed doors but the steam is everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best so far 8 March 2017
By S. Berkowitz - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book. A little different than some of the previous ones. Savannah's mother is an integral part of the story and shows a different side than we usually see. I love the addition of Pearl to the mix. Rafe is called by Sheriff Satterfield to help in the investigation of 7 murders. Savannah who is 7months pregnant is right by his side. The plot has many twists and turns and the conclusion is surprising. The other plot which is going on is whether Yvonne will be able to inherit Beulah Odom's restaurant or if her family will find a way to stop it. The relationship between Race and Savannah is a true partnership and it seems like she has been pregnant for way more than 7months. The sort was riveting and I enjoyed seeing how Margaret is developing and how she is able to remain strong and take charge when needed. I am just now wondering what their next adventure will be.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Mired in Molasses" 10 March 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This addition to the series takes Rafe and Savannah back to Sweetwater, where Rafe has been asked to help with a murder investigation. Drugs and pit bulls used in illegal fights point in the direction of a possible organized crime connection, but there are few other clues to help in solving the crime. The Columbus police chief wants in on the investigation, but settles for sending one of his officers. Meanwhile, a seven months pregnant Savannah helps in her own way by asking questions, offering theories and rescuing one of the 'pits'.
This adventure moves a little slower than previous books, as did the case, prompting Rafe's comment about the case being "mired in molasses". Still, the book reveals the continuing evolution of Rafe and Savannah's relationship as they move toward becoming a family. And they still remain one of my favorite "book couples", quirks and all.
