Mac Burns is a retired police detective from Atlanta who makes a new home in the sleepy lowcountry town of Bluffon, South Carolina. Mac is devoted to his divorced status, and not particularly interested in a new relationship, however... Shelby, many years Mac's junior may be interested. Is Mac? Enter Percy, his next door neighbor and a disbarred attorney, who proves to be, at very least, a reliable drinking buddy. When an old acquaintance from his days in Atlanta shows up, his hopes of a "ho hum" existence are quickly dashed. Mac discovers that the instincts he cultivated as a big city cop haven't faded as he reluctantly but purposefully dives into the task of solving a mystery that will take him from Charleston to New Orleans and even back to Atlanta. Nothing could prepare him for the ultimate outcome. Lowcountry Boil is an engaging and entertaining page turner, particularly for fans of crime fiction.

New York Times best seller Winner, James Beard Foundation Award, Best Book of the Year in American Cooking Winner, IACP Julia Child First Book Award Sean Brock is the chef behind the game-changing restaurants Husk and McCrady’s, and his first book offers all of his inspired recipes. With a drive to preserve the heritage foods of the South, Brock cooks dishes that are ingredient-driven and reinterpret the flavors of his youth in Appalachia and his adopted hometown of Charleston. The recipes include all the comfort food (think food to eat at home) and high-end restaurant food (fancier dishes when there’s more time to cook) for which he has become so well-known. Brock’s interpretation of Southern favorites like Pickled Shrimp, Hoppin’ John, and Chocolate Alabama Stack Cake sit alongside recipes for Crispy Pig Ear Lettuce Wraps, Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder with Tomato Gravy, and Baked Sea Island Red Peas. This is a very personal book, with headnotes that explain Brock’s background and give context to his food and essays in which he shares his admiration for the purveyors and ingredients he cherishes.

Festive recipes from the Wall Street Journal bestselling author whose books “continue his exploration and celebration of Southern grace and style” (Vie Magazine). In the South, weddings, showers, birthdays, retirements and high holidays, along with many of life’s milestones and seasonal splendors, all lend themselves to celebrations. Even the luxury of a Sunday evening at home with family—and friends considered to be family—can be a cause for a feast. Through luscious signature recipes, stories and gorgeous photography, Farmer, known as “a Martha Stewart of the South,” and friends show us what Southern hospitality is all about. From society weddings to Lowcountry boils, second birthdays to Christmas parties, you’ll be guided through the menu planning and preparations to pull off celebrations that will be talked about for years. Praise for James T. Farmer and his books “A Southern gentleman who’s just as charming in the garden as he is in the kitchen. He’s compiled all his botanical experiences into A Time to Plant.”—Harper’s Bazaar “A Time to Cook, A Time to Plant and A Time to Celebrate are titles of three of his books that inspire readers to cultivate, decorate and salivate over their own efforts in the kitchen. His books contain descriptive text combined with colorful photographs and garden-to-table recipes.”—The Virginian-Pilot
