Pump Up Your Book is pleased to bring you David Burnsworth’s Southern Heat virtual book tour March 3 – April 30! To see a list of the other bloggers participating click here.
When Brack Pelton finds his uncle dying in an alleyway instead of at the restaurant he is supposed to meet him he is devastated but is bound and determined to find the killer. He ultimately teams up with a reporter who happens to work at his uncles ex-wife's newspaper. It doesn't help that the police think he did it and it is going to take a whole lot of digging to get at the truth.
I think my favorite character is the minister whose congregation is on the wrong side of town-The minister seems to be everywhere that trouble may start and stops it cold! UM HUM-definitely my favorite character. This small southern town is certainly a hot bed, lots of small sub-plots as in any mall town and I think you will enjoy this who dun it as much as I did!

Title: Southern Heat
Author: David Burnsworth
Publisher: Five Star/Gale
Genre: Southern Noir/Mystery
Format: Paperback & eBook
Gunshots echo down an antebellum Charleston alley. Brack Pelton, an ex-racecar driver and Afghanistan War veteran, witnesses the murder of his uncle, Reggie Sails. Darcy Wells, the pretty Palmetto Pulse reporter, investigates Reggie’s murder and targets Brack.
The sole heir of his uncle’s estate, Brack receives a rundown bar called the Pirate’s Cove, a rotting beach house, and one hundred acres of preserved and valuable wetland along the Ashley River. A member of Charleston’s wealthiest and oldest families offers Brack four million dollars for the land. All Brack wants is his uncle’s killer.
From the sandy beaches of Isle of Palms, through the nineteenth-century mansions lining the historic Battery, to the marshlands surrounding the county, Southern Heat is drenched in the humidity of the lowcountry.
