Mysteries That Take Place in Savannah, Georgia

In 1994, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, a non-fiction story about a murder trial in Savannah, Georgia, became a best seller on the New York Times best seller list for 216 weeks following its debut.  It reigns as the longest standing best seller in their history.  What is it about this book that captivates readers? There are so many reasons I like it: first and foremost, I love how it describes the physical beauty of Savannah--a town built upon a system of public squares that have beautiful gardens, fountains, and statuary. The homes surrounding each square are wonderful, too.  The last time my husband and I went there, we went on a home and garden tour in the Spring and got to look inside these houses.  Wow! What a world they displayed; if only we lowly ones could live like that, too. I love the cast of characters in "The Book", as the locals refer to "Midnight".  I especially like Jim Williams and The Lady Chablis. They are so larger-than-life.  We went to one of Chablis' performances the last time we were in Savannah and were treated to a night we'll never forget.

Honeymoon in Savannah: A Detective Santy Mystery
by Louise Hathaway

Our murder/mystery, Honeymoon in Savannah: A Detective Santy Mystery, is about this beautiful city, where our homicide detective, Clarissa Santy, and her husband go on a "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" pilgrimage and end up involved in a murder investigation when a famous chef is murdered while they are in Savannah.  The chef just happens to be Clarissa's cousin--so this is personal.  And she can't rest until she finds out whodunit.
