Summary (from Goodreads):
After the worst Christmas Eve of his life, DEA Agent T.A. Reddick leaves Miami for the magical city of Charleston, South Carolina, hoping a return to his roots will heal a broken heart and the guilt of killing a friend. The sleepy and sultry town of Charleston is filled with echoes of the Old South: genteel playboys, society debutantes, and quiet cobblestone streets. But as Reddick will soon discover, there's danger lurking under her charming veneer. When a movie star's death shines a national spotlight on Charleston's underground cocaine trade, he must go undercover to find the main supplier and shut him down. As a hurricane bears down on the port city and the DEA gets ready to spring its trap, Reddick must contend with more than he ever could have imagined

My thoughts:
Lowcountry Punch by Boo Walker is a thrilling book about the life of DEA Agent T. A. Reddick. After the unfortunate death of a friend and the loss of his fiance, Reddick decides a change of scenery would do him some good. He moves to Charleston, South Carolina. After only a few weeks on the job he becomes involved in some major drug activity. He goes undercover to take down a heavy hitter. However things get complicated when Reddick falls for a beautiful artist and has to lie about who he is and what he does for a living. Also his stalker doesn't really help matters either.
The first page of this story draws you into a world of intrigue and mystery. Reddick is a great character. He has a great sense of humor and is also very talented. The story is told through his point of view. I love that the setting is in Charleston. I think it adds a certain ambiance to the book. The story is what I would consider a page turner. It's full of action and adventure. I was on the edge of my seat wondering if Reddick's cover was going to be blown. Boo Walker has written a great story. He pulls you into it and you don't want to let go until the last page.
