Love Sister and Mouse! This time they are trying to locate Pukey Lukey's runaway wife, who is apparently mixed up with a snake-handling preacher and a beautiful dead woman in a church. Only these two sisters could straighten out this mess!
Sisters Patricia Anne and Mary Alice depart on a journey to help cousin Luke locate Virginia, his wife of 40 years, who has fled with a housepainter/snake-handling preacher named "Monk." Along the way, they find the corpse of a young redhead and are soon hot on the trail of a killer. Seventh in the Southern Sisters series.
Sixtyish sisters Patricia Anne and Mary Alice return for more wacky fun and adventure in their seventh mystery in this popular series from Agatha-winner George. Soon after returning home to Birmingham, Ala., from Christmas in Poland, Patricia Anne and Mary Alice agree to help their cousin Luke track down his wife of 40 years, Virginia, who's run off with a house painter-cum-preacher with the Salinger-esque name of Holden Crawford. They start their search at Crawford's Jesus is Our Life and Heaven Hereafter Church, where someone hits Luke over the head and the two sisters find the neatly laid out body of an unknown woman in a pew. While Luke is in the hospital, the renegade preacher turns up in Virginia's car, dead of a snakebite. Patricia Anne and Mary Alice, aided by the local sheriff, unearth plenty of signs of jealousy, blackmail and adultery as they strive to clear Virginia's name and get to the bottom of her disappearance
An excellent Southern Sister mystery set in Birmingham, Alabama. Full of humor and action that will keep you laughing the whole time. I spent many summers in Homewood, Alabama at the base of the Vulcan statue and never knew some of the things revealed in Anne George's books.
The sisters help their cousin "Pukey Lukey" search for his missing wife. In their search they encounter snake handlers and a book loving English professor in Chandler Mountain. Before you can say anaconda they are on the serpentine trail of a killer who'd like nothing better than to sink a pair of poisonous fangs into two meddling Southern Sisters.
Though unalike as snowflakes, sisters Patricia Anne and Mary Alice share a sympathetic heart for their cousin Luke-known affectuonately as "Pukey Lukey" because of his penchant for getting carsick. Luke is trying to track down, Virginia, his wife of forty years, who has run off with a housepainter/snake-hndling preacher named "Monk."
