Everybody's Suspect in Georgia by Cecil Murphey
This was a pleasant enough read, but none of the stories really grabbed me and made me want more.
The stories find psychologist Julie West and Pastor James Burton thrown together over and over at the wrong time and in the wrong place. Their first meet each other at a dinner party in Everybody Loved Roger Hardin. The party, held on a private island, is a grand affair to dazzle all until Hardin is found dead.
Next they both show up at the Carledge Inn where their find a dead body of a mutual acquaintance in Room 623... and oddly enough after the murder Everyone Wants Room 623.
And their final adventure (at least in this compilation) happens on an Antarctic cruise where romance grows cold as they come face to face with the murder of yet another friend in Everyone Called Her a Saint.
A nice cozy read, but not wow.
