This was a great book. I got it because someone reviewed it and said it was like putting Stephanie Plum in the Mississippi Delta. The author Carolyn Haines does not have the sense of humor that Janet Evenovich posesses but is a fantastic storyteller nevertheless. The twist at the end was very unexpected. I throughly enjoyed this book.
First book in the "Bones" series featuring Sarah Booth Delaney. I have read all of them and each one gets better and better. Sarah Booth is a Southern Belle who has fallen on hard times and has to resort to working as a private detective in order to save the family home. There are some paranormal elements as she lives with Jitty, the ghost of a former slave. Jitty provides most of the comic relief in this series as she is overly concerned about Sarah Booth's love life. Funny and charming mystery.
These books can make you laugh and cry. Written with real "southernisms" you feel like your Grandma is going to be right in there cooking for you! I love how the character has been developed and each book just gets better. Independent female charcters make the book flow with wit and excitement.
I can't believe that i had this series and hadn't read it yet. I think the cover turned me off, but remember getting the 3 books on the reccommendation 0f a friend, I LOVED IT!! I really like this author and the read is funny, thrilling, full of mystery and people you will really like. I'm really glad i read this. Taught me not to judge by the cover.!!
This is a fascinating book with mystery, "woo-woo" and a bit of romance as well. Lots of interesting people in this book. The main character is Sarah Booth Delaney, who is about to lose her family place.
