If the rest of this series is as good as this, I'm in for some good reading! Two sisters - in their sixties, in the South. Likeable characters, nearly believable situations and a very well "scripted" mystery. I'm only sorry that Ms. George has passed away and there won't be more than the eight she wrote! A great sense of humor and a strong sense of self! I think you will enjoy this book!

I read this whole series and loved it! We were sad when we discovered Anne George had passed away, because we would have loved to read more from her. Four generations of us have read these books (my grandma, my mom, my daughter, and myself), and we all loved them. I even bought them for my mother-in-law, and I wouldn't buy her anything that was offensive in any way. There are some funny innuendos, but the book isn't offensive or obscee, just funny. The interaction between the sisters is delightful, and the relationship of the one sister and her long-time husband is very real and sweet.

Highly recommended to anyone. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!

I read the reviews on this series and read them all. I have never laughed so hard at these two sisters. My husband always knew when I was reading an Anne George book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

"Book Description


A Different Kind of Sister Act

Patricia Anne -- "Mouse" -- is respectful, respectable, and demure, a perfect example of genteel Southern womanhood. Mary Alice -- "Sister" -- is big, brassy, flamboyant, and bold. Together they have a knack for finding themselves in the center of some of Birmingham's most unfortunate unpleasantness.

Country Western is red hot these days, so overimpulsive Mary Alice thinks it makes perfect sense to buy the Skoot 'n' Boot bar -- since that's where the many-times-divorced "Sister" and her boyfriend du jour like to hang out anyway. Sensible retired schoolteacher Patricia Anne is inclined to disagree -- especially when they find a strangled and stabbed dead body dangling in the pub's wishing well. The sheriff has some questions for Mouse and her sister Sister, who were the last people, besides the murderer, of course, to see the ill-fated victim alive. And they had better come up with some answers soon -- because a killer with unfinished business has begun sending them some mighty threatening messages..."

This isn't a real whodunit since she doesn't quite give you enough pieces to solve the crime yourself, but it is a fun book with a couple of characters you may enjoy spending a couple of hours with.

Hysterically funny series! They are set in Birmingham, AL. Unfortunately Anne George is no longer with us, but I know she has them ROFL in heaven! This whole series-6 books I think-are really good.

Oh, this was cute! I loved the interaction between the sisters. I also enjoyed the fact that it was "Mouse" (Patricia Anne) that tells the story, because we get to see exactly how much of a backbone she really has! There are several scenes that really made me laugh out loud, and the mystery kept me going until almost the end. I'm glad I've already got the next few... They're getting bumped up to the top of the TBR list!

This is the first in a series and I will read the others as I loved this one. It is a cozy mystery and just what I was in the mood for. It has a lot of twists and turns and keeps your interest. Patricia Ann and her family are people you will want to visit with again.

This is a Southern Sisters Mystery. It's filled with humor, as always. Two sisters get involved in finding a body in the wishing well at a roadhouse one has just purchased. Their antics at trying to find the killer are hilarrious.

Different cover, same book!!! A funny, funny book involving two elderly sisters who are unwittedly entangled in murder after the older of the two buys the 'Skoot n Boot', a seedy old western bar where she learned how to line dance!!!

Meet a new kind of sister act, with nothing in common....but murder.
Buying the Skoot 'n' Boot makes perfect sense to oversized, overimpulsive multiple widow Mary Alice. Her serious, respectable ex-schoolteacher sister Patricia Anne thinks Mary Alice is out of her cotton-pickin' mind, but Mary Alice insists that Country Western is hot and the Skoot 'n' Boot is where she and her current boyfriend hang out anyway. "Turly delightful, laugh-out-loud fun. I wish Patricia Anne and Mary Alice were my sisters. I'd love to hang out with them." (quote by Jull Churchill)
