The Bones I have to pick are with Ms Haines lack of action, unrealistic characters, and an unfunny plot that has a young girl dragged to her death behind a truck. "Stephanie Plum meets the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" says the cover. I think not. This was a slow boring book filled with outdated stereotypes and very little else.

A down-home valentine that couldn't be more Southern if it were packaged with grits. An entertaining mix of mysery and mirth.

The continuing saga of Sarah Booth Delaney, Deep South private investigator. This one was more satisfying than the previous book in the series because it moves the romance further along. The story's a humdinger, too.

Classic Haines!

Forgot picking up one of these books and not stopping until you are finished! You'll not want to stop until you've read the entire series!! I've now read 7 and am impatiently waiting for the 8th to arrive in the mail, all within one week.

The books have down home southern charm and will have you giggling out loud (usually from the antics of the resident haint/ghost).

I really like this series of books. They are interesting but not to "out there". Recommend for family reading and mystery lovers, also if you like red tick hounds.

Love, love, love this series! Never know what is going to happen and the "haint" is the best. Plus I love the weird love interests.

From Amazon:

Wickedly witty and full of more dirt than a debutante's diary, the mysteries of Carolyn Haines bring the southern Delta to roaring, rollicking life...

Intrepid P.I. Sarah Booth Delaney has been known to single-handedly save her family's Mississippi plantation, converse with Dahlia House's ghost, and capture a killer or two. But when a local girl is found dead in a cotton field, it's enough to make a lady toss back a Bloody Mary before noon on Sunday.

Someone held twenty-three-year-old Quentin McGee's face down in the rich Southern soil until she suffocated. The lawmen think Quentin's lover killed her. When the suspect's brother hires Sarah to prove his sibling innocent, Sarah quickly learns that the victim had plenty of wealthy, powerful enemies. Each had a bone to pick with Quentin for writing a scandalous exposé on her hometown. Adding spice to the gumbo is the news that Quentin was due to inherit the family fortune the day after she was killed...and that a second book was in the works. From illicit lovers and outraged families to slandered aristocrats, everyone is a suspect--and no one is safe...

I love this book and all of the Sarah Booth Delaney series. If you're a fan this book will not disappoint. Also I'll let you know that if you contact Carolyn Haines on her website she is very good about responding. Wonderful southern lady and writer.

I really enjoyed the mystery portion of this book. Good murder plot with twists I did not see coming. BUT, I did not enjoy the stupid parts with the ghost that lives in Sarah's house. And the ending was way too long. Even after the killer is revealed and apprehended, there are 20 more pages of pointless info about Sarah and her personal life. I'm debating reading another book from this series.

It's entirely possible this is the most boring, unrealistic, silly book I've ever drug through. Cliché tied to cliché, adjectives piled on adjectives, syrupy southernisms, stock characters - this one has it all. There is neither enough plot nor mystery here to actually call the thing a book. It's just a string of romantic dreams. No one drinks; they 'quench their parched throats.' No one hears any bad news without 'tears welling up along their dark eyelashes.' Every false emotional moment brings forth the same false response. Not only is the writing sad, what plot I could find is convoluted and contrived. The thought this woman has written a series frightens me.

I love this series of a southern belle and her resident ghost. All her friends make it fun.

Love Sarah Booth. Her stories are really enjoyable. I can read these just before bed and not have bad dreams. Ms Haines has quite a flair.
