Peach Clobbered is a quirky, interesting and enjoyable read.
~The Book Decoder
The story is superbly written, and the characters are perfect. I love all the differences, and the setting with the Shakespearean references is fabulous.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
The pacing was perfect and each chapter drew me right into the next. I was engaged by the characters completely and was anxious to see how everything in this novel panned out.

. . . a great mystery that is full of charm, personality, an adorable dog, and a surprising ending. Overall a fantastic start to a new series that is perfect for cozy fans. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog
This was just a load of fun from beginning to end, from Harry’s first appearance in the penguin suit right up to his driving off into the sunset at the end . . .
Peach Clobbered was an entertaining cozy mystery.
~The Avid Reader
A quaint setting, unusual circumstances, and fun characters made this a very enjoyable cozy read for me.
~The Book’s the Thing
I really enjoyed the characters, the setting was great and the mystery was intriguing.
It’s well written, complex, populated with engaging, sometimes quirky characters, and filled with funny, if not outright hilarious moments.
~The Power of Words
Delightfully written with plenty of characters to love (and suspect), Peach Clobbered is a great start to a new cozy series!
~Reading Is My SuperPower
Peach Clobbered was a fun, exciting mystery and I adored Nina.
I believe Ms. Gerard has got herself a fabulous new series, and Peach Clobbered has been a funny and wonderful new beginning to Nina’s life in Cymbeline Georgia.
~I’m All About Books
I loved this book – from the witty dialogue, quirky characters, and southern setting. It is a winning combination.
I enjoyed this book from the time I picked it up till I finished it . . . This was a very well written story with a great plot. It was fast-paced and kept me flipping pages.

PEACH CLOBBERED is a charming, witty, and engaging mystery that pulled me in from the start.

What’s black and white and dead all over? Georgia bed and breakfast proprietor Nina Fleet finds out when she comes across a corpse in a penguin costume.
Nina Fleet’s life ought to be as sweet as a Georgia peach. Awarded a tidy sum in her divorce, Nina retired at 41 to a historic Queen Anne house in quaint Cymbeline, GA. But Nina’s barely settled into her new B&B-to-be when a penguin shows up on her porch. Or, at least, a man wearing a penguin suit.
Harry Westcott is making ends meet as an ice cream shop’s mascot and has a letter from his great-aunt, pledging to leave him the house. Too bad that’s not what her will says. Meanwhile, the Sisters of Perpetual Poverty have lost their lease. Real estate developer Gregory Bainbridge intends to turn the convent into a golfing community, so Cymbeline’s mayor persuades Nina to take in the elderly nuns. And then Nina finds the “penguin” again, this time lying in an alley with a kitchen knife in his chest.
A peek under the beak tells Nina it’s not Harry inside the costume, but Bainbridge. What was he doing in Harry’s penguin suit? Was the developer really the intended victim, or did the culprit mean to kill Harry? Whoever is out to stop Harry from contesting the sale of his great-aunt’s house may also be after Nina, so she teams up with him to cage the killer before someone clips her wings in Peach Clobbered, Anna Gerard’s charming first Georgia B&B mystery.
