Blu Heat, a novella by David Burnsworth, introduces us to Blu Carraway, the star of Mr. Burnsworth’s new series. Having the opening scene take place in Brack’s bar was a definite bonus for me, as I’m a fan of this author’s Brack Pelton series (a clever crossover!). Mr. Burnsworth’s books are fun reads with likable characters, lots of exciting action, and a great location (and a very adorable dog!). I’m looking forward to reading more books by this author. Happy reading!
This is not your cozy mystery. There are quite a few gunshots and killed people in this short novella. The action is nearly continuous. Yet there is some snarky dialog and some interesting characters as well. The setting of the coastal south is interesting too.
I recommend this novella to readers who enjoy a quick shoot 'em up story with tough but likable protagonists. I'll be watching for more from this author.
I received a complimentary egalley of this novella through Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours. My comments are an independent and honest review.
When Skip Romeo is killed while waiting to meet up with lowcountry PI Blu Carraway in Brack Pelton's Pirate's Cove bar on the Isle of Palm, all hell breaks out! Both Brack and Blu are determined to find the killer, so they team up and engage in a dangerous game of cat and mouse seeking revenge and justice throughout Charleston.
Author David Burnsworth weaves a fast-paced and suspenseful tale that follows Blu and Brack's investigative journey as it takes them all over Charleston in search of the killer. The reader is easily drawn into this well written story with its richly descriptive plot and setting, it is filled with enough action and unsuspecting twists and turns that takes the reader on one hell of a thrilling roller coaster ride.
As a fan of Southern fiction, I loved the richly descriptive Charleston setting and the surrounding lowcountry SC areas. I was intrigued by the author's creativity of intertwining his previous Brack Pelton Mystery Series featuring Brack Pelton with the new Blu Carraway Mystery Series featuring low country PI Blu Carraway. The author masterly weaves one hell of a new explosive mystery, where Blu and Brack team up and embark on a dangerous adventure to find the killer and seek justice!
With an intriguing cast of characters; witty dialogue and dramatic interactions; and a richly descriptive setting that makes a person want to visit the picturesque city of Charleston, its historic landmarks, and the surrounding lowcountry areas; Blu Heat is an awesome debut mystery series novella that has the true essence of a classic Southern noir mystery!
