A loan payment is also due on her family’s farm in Alabama and if she doesn’t figure something out soon, they will lose that as well. Summer is offered the chance to star in a reality show with her as a now [...]

    2. In the mood for a cozy mystery book? Deadly Summer by Denise Grover Swank is the first in the Darling Investigation series. Summer Butler was once the teenage star of the TV show "Gotcha." Now ten years later she is a washed-up TV star and about to not only lose her house but also the family farm. As a last resort at getting her finances in check, she is offered a reality TV show being a PI. The downside though is that it is in her hometown of Sweet Briar and even worst is that Sweet Briar is a [...]

    3. I have a feeling this is going to be one of the best Mystery Series YET from Denise. I was delighted to have the chance to read it. I have to tell you that it is everything I love about DGS. Mystery, humor, love, sass, and twists that you never see coming at you at high speeds. Unpredictable events in southern Alabama have these characters causing more trouble than they bargained for resulting in the local police department investigating in circles around them. I am quietly awating the next in t [...]

    4. 3.5 starsDenise Grover Swank is at her best when writing mysteries with a touch of romance set in small Southern towns, and this new series fits the bill quite nicely. Summer Butler left her hometown in Alabama as a teen to star in a hit TV series in which she solved mysteries. A dozen years later, her career washed up and her debts mounting (her mother ran off with her money and she’s been trying to save the family farm), she seizes a last-chance opportunity by agreeing to star in a reality T [...]

    5. I'm not a stranger to Denise's books, I found this one to be somewhat fresh from all her other books. Summer was the childhood stardom, but something happen and her career went downhill. She took a chance in trying a new reality show as an investigator, although she has no background and no license. All the show needed was a made up story and her acting as an investigator.The made-up story however lead to an actual case and curiosity takes over.For most part of the book, I like the fact that it [...]

    6. You can find this review in English below.Esta historia no es para mí. A pesar de no haber pasado del 10% del libro ya sé que no va a funcionar. Tiene mucho de chick-lit, un género maravilloso pero que no consigue atraerme.No puntúo. No sería justoC kindly provided by Montlake Romance via Netgalley.This story is not for me. I have hardly reached the 10% mark in the book and I know it´s not going to work for me. There is a bit of Chick-lit, a fabulous genre which it seems I can´t enjoy.So [...]

    7. Deadly Summer is more of a cozy mystery than it is a romantic to suspense to me but it really was truly entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat after the 25/30% mark. The beginning was a bit slow for me and I really had to push past it, but once I did it was a great read!Deadly Summer is a perfect blend of Swank's Rose Gardner Series and Magnolia Steele. The southern in this book isn't overplayed or done up too much. Even if the producer tried to make them appear that way. Not only was D [...]

    8. I’m sometimes hesitant to start a new series, especially one that isn’t completed, but I’m so in love with Rose’s series I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! Summer is the perfect mix of Rose and Magnolia, she has sass and class and I fell in love with her almost immediately. It was so hard to put this book down, it kept my attention from the first few pages. Another A+ book for Denise Grover Swank!

    9. Move over Rose and Magnolia - there’s a new favorite in town. Another incredible start to a new series. I’m so looking forward to the next book, and this one just came out! Congratulations, Denise, on another fabulous book.

    10. This is a wonderful new series by Denise Grover Swank. She certainly has "the touch" when it comes to writing books. Summer is an actress that hasn't worked in a while. Her mother ran off with all her money and now she is being forced to make a choice about her career. This is a really good book with murder and a handsome chief of police, who just happens to be Summer's former boyfriend. I highly recommend getting this book now so you can stay on top with the journey through this series.I volunt [...]

    11. 4.5/5.0An almost pitch perfect beginning for a very promising new series! Ms. Swank has a wonderful talent for keeping the reader glued to the page trying to figure out the mystery while imbuing the characters with humor and warmth. It all adds up to a delightful journey to the finish!

    12. I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. This is as sweet and fluffy as a murder mystery gets. The story of a washed up teen star who stumbles into a real crime while filming a ridiculous reality TV show is full of small town Southern charm. It’s a fun read that builds slowly to a surprisingly exciting end. I couldn’t help but like Summer more than I wanted to. She has more substance than anyone expects and she is more self-deprecating than the first few chapters [...]

    13. What a delicious comedic, romantic mystery.I have read several of Denise Grover Swank's YA/NA novels and contemporary romances but have shied away from her mysteries until now but the premise lured me in - and how glad I am.Poor Summer Butler. Famous for being a child star of a popular TV show in which she played a child detective she is now unable to get other acting roles (because she's been typecast) or a normal job (because she has that residual fame). Her mother was always hungry for money [...]

    14. If you are a lover of mysteries, than this new series by Denise Grover Swank will keep you enthralled until the very end. I have heard others say that this book is a good mixture of DGS’s other two mystery series, and while I can see it too, I feel it is mainly because the heroine, Summer, has plenty of sass and wit that is synonymous with this author’s brilliant characters. They have such complexities and flaws and growth that you can only fall in love with them. She is very clever in givin [...]

    15. What a fun read! If you are a fan of Denise’s Rose Gardner series you will LOVE Darling Investigations. There is something about the way Denise writes that makes you feel like you are surrounded by old friends even at the beginning of a new series. There is a comfortable familiarity in Denise’s books that I absolutely love. Summer and her family are a fun bunch. I immediately fell in love with the characters and the story. Mystery, romance, humor, quick wit. This one has it all. Sit down wit [...]

    16. Deadly Summer by Denise Grover Swank might be the epitome of a beach read. I mean, just look at the cover. It's got a great, strong female protagonist, a crime that needs to be solved, a small town, and a big dose of romance. And guess what? It all happens because a struggling, child-actor-now-grown-up needs to pay the bills and she figures she might as well sign up for a reality show. (It's better than having to take nude pictures, right?)Synopsis (from ):Ten years ago, Summer Butler was tele [...]

    17. A good start to a new series by Denise Grover Swank.Great story, interesting plot with great twists and turns and as always a wonderful array of charming characters.

    18. Deadly Summer by Denise Grover Swank a five-star read that will have you wanting to keep looking for more. This is the first book in the Darling Investigations series and I’m a huge fan of the author already having read several of her books already, but this one brings a freshness to it, it’s got hints of the Rose Gardner Mystery series. But it takes it to the next level Summer Butler is a woman who may just be my favourite character ever written, she is funny and despite having some of the [...]

    19. Summer Butler is a television star whose star has fallen. When she was a teen she played a teenage private eye whose signature line was "Gotcha." But ten years later she can't find a job, her manager mother ran off with all her earnings, and she is about to lose her house and lose the family farm. Salvation might be at hand if she is willing to go the route of reality TVSummer finds herself in her hometown of Sweet Briar, Alabama where her first boyfriend, and the only man she's ever loved, is n [...]

    20. I received an ARCof this book in exchange for an honest review. First, let me start by saying that I love this author's writing! She has an amazing ability to pull me into a story from the beginning and keep me captive until the end. Deadly Summer, the first book in the new "Darling Investigations" series, took me a little time to get into. Being the first in a new series, there is always background information that needs to be relayed to the reader. This book was no different from her other ser [...]

    21. This is another my favorites series by Denise Grover Swank! I've fallen in love with main character Summer and other well written characters of this book. Great crime and relationship plot with so many twists and turns full of funny moments which kept me captured from first page to the very end. I've been having hard times putting down this book.Absolutely amazing book! Can't wait for the next one to see what trouble is coming in the Summer's way. Highly recommend this series!

    22. I started reading Denise Grover Swank with her Rose Gardner series. I loved the sweet and innocent author’s voice for that main character, Rose Gardner. I find that the main character, Summer Butler, in “Deadly Summer” to have a very similar voice as Rose Gardner. The main difference is experience. Both the author and the main character, Summer, have more experience. The new character works well and although I’ve only given this book 3.5 stars, I have high hopes for this series.Summer Bu [...]

    23. Denise is at her best when writing mysteries led by strong, but unlikely lead females. She manages to take women who are meek and mild to strong and confident while weaving a mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat. She is able to find, and deliver, the perfect concoction of funny, heart-warming, nail-biting interactions that leave you wanting to know more. Denise is the master of bringing an odd premise, such as a washed-up child actress turned PI reality show star, to life and leav [...]

    24. Great book!Summer is an extremely nice actor that has been taken advantage of by her mother. In fact her mother is the main reason her life is in its current state. She is so desperate to work she went back to her home town to pose as a PI.

    25. Charming bookI loved this book and can't wait to see what DGS does with Summer. Her books are always a great read, and I love that this series starred after the end of the Magnolia series. She keeps coming up with new amazing series and the character evolution is always great!

    26. Outstanding!Denise Grover Swank already captured my attention as a gifted writer with her Rose Gardner series but this book was just as good. Hopefully there are many books to come for Summer as I am already addicted. As I read the first page I quickly realized how good this book was and I was already hooked. The characters are well writen and developed. There is plenty of action excitement and danger. The story is interesting and pulls readers in at the very beginning. It's just wonderful. Summ [...]

    27. I am a big fan of Denise Grover Swank. However, I will also admit that when I first began reading "Deadly Summer" I wasn't quite sure if I would really like this read. The concept seemed a little cliche but it grabbed my interest and didn't let go until the very end.Summer Butler is as washed up Hollywood starlet who made her fortune after starring as a teen sleuth. After Summer's mother steals all of her money and her family farm is about to be lost due to a default on a big balloon payment com [...]

    28. GoodThe book was pretty good. Similar to the Rose Gardner series. I prefer that series to this one. Still pretty good and I would more than likely read a part two if there will be one.

    29. Oh my gosh can this lady write mystery!! And such awesome, spunky, smart and fun leading ladies! I didn't think she could top Rose or Magnolia but I might just be wrong. I am so glad this is going to be a series sad if it was not. Keep them coming Denise. Your fans love everything you write. You never disappoint.
