A Beautiful Corpse by Christi Daugherty


Considered book #2 in the Harper McClain series, this most definitely can be read as a stand-alone. Having seen the rave reviews for Daugherty’s THE ECHO KILLING last year I decided I needed to know what all the fuss was about.

The story starts out with a bang. Twenty-four-year-old Naomi is found shot to death in the heart of downtown Savannah. There are three suspects but all claim to love her. So, who could have killed this smart and beautiful young girl?

Crime reporter Harper McClain is a fantastic protagonist. She’s likable, hardworking, authentic. There is really nothing to not like about her and I love having someone to root for. The story has a lot of crime, a little heartache and a lot of depth of character. The setting of this one is also fantastic. I’ve never been to Savannah but I’ve always wanted to visit. Although, after reading this and learning of all the crime I’m not sure I want to be a tourist there. Yikes!

This is the type of book I could read on a regular basis. I’ll most definitely be reading the next book in the series and might even need to go back and read the first book. WHAT?! That should tell you something. 😊

4.5 stars.
