Diminutive Florida Big Lake Country Club bartender Emily Rhodes normally has no trouble calming drunks down or handling her other more abrasive companions and that includes her part-time coworker Donald Green. Emily’s coping skills are put to the test though when she stumbles across her second body at the Big Lake Bar-B-Que Competition (the first occurring in Dumpster Dying), especially considering that the body was sauced and stuffed with an apple in his mouth. It seems that philandering Everett Pratt has basted his last hunk of meat and there are a string of competitors and the not-so-broken hearted as suspects.

The Glades premiered on A&E last year during the summer, and I stumbled upon on it looking for new TV shows to fill the void that is summer. To my surprise, I LOVED it. The series stars Matt Passmore, the latest in brilliant Australian imports (seriously is every actor from down under super talented?), as Detective Jim Longworth, a former Chicago cop who after being shot by his boss, moves to Florida with his settlement money to relax and golf. Joining the FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement), he finds that Florida has a high crime rate that will keep him busy and away from the golf course.
