Southern Discomfort: A Southern B&B Mystery
by Caroline Fardig
I appreciated the diversity of suspects and motives as we got to know more about Quinn and Delilah as well as learning how their thinking patterns worked on chasing clues while staying safe.
I love stories about the (American) South. I love the punny titles of cozy mystery stories. And I love a stronger-than-she-thinks heroine. A writer that combines all of these with finesse is Caroline Fardig.
If you love Southern cozy mysteries then Southern Discomfort is for you. Great debut cozy!
I enjoyed the characters and the story.
~My Reading Journeys
The characters are well rounded and well developed. I really liked the relationship between Quinn and Delilah.
There are many aspects to this book – mystery, romance and even a little bit of the paranormal. It’s a fast-paced story with a surprising ending.

The first Southern B&B mystery is as sweet as the tea served with Quinn’s scones. It combines Southern hospitality with murder while underscoring manners, loyalty, family, and dogged determination.

I absolutely love Caroline Fardig and this book is a perfect example of why. Can we talk about character building and settings? This book has heavy amounts of both.

What a great start to a new cozy series.

Southern hospitality meets smart sleuthing. This was a mystery I finished in less than a day. It was fun, well paced and the characters come alive to you.
If you are searching for a new cozy mystery, this had been a great read . . .
I absolutely loved the Southern setting. Savannah, Georgia comes to life in this charming B&B with the Bellandini sisters, Papa Sal, and others.

Southern hospitality meets deadly deception in the start of a charming new mystery series from the USA Today bestselling author of the Java Jive novels.
Quinn Bellandini loves her life in Savannah, Georgia, where she runs her grandfather’s B&B with her sister, Delilah. From baking fresh scones and serving up grits every morning to ensuring the guests see the best of their historic city, Quinn can’t imagine doing anything else—even if it means dealing with nuisances like the occasional malfunctioning commode. But when Quinn drops by the local restaurant owned by her friend Drew Green, and stumbles upon a murder, her whole world comes crashing down.
Drew’s brother was always a little surly, but Quinn can’t imagine that someone disliked the prickly chef enough to kill him. The police, on the other hand, don’t believe that Quinn was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Before her guests can even digest the next morning’s gourmet breakfast, Quinn learns that she and Drew are suspects.
Drew thinks they should do some investigating of their own. Quinn is pretty sure she’s better suited to playing hostess than amateur sleuth. But with Delilah as her cynical sidekick, Quinn starts looking for the real killer—before she gets put away faster than you can say “sugar.”
