Sarah Booth sees dead people...well, just one. The ghost of her ancestors' nanny, who provides insights that help her solve her cases, like Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone shuffles her index cards. I found the idea of the ghost very interesting.
In general, the characters are excentric and well written. I was guessing "who-dunnit" until the very end and was wrong every time.

Good book about a "southern belle" turned Detective. One of her friends has confessed to murdering her husband, but Sarah Booth Delaney doesn't believe it. Its a mystery, but also a comedy.

I have read the Carolyn Haines books and they are all wonderful. The main character, Sarah Booth Delaney, reminds me of Stephanie Plum in the Janet Evanovich novels. She happened into her "private investigator" job by chance and although she is good at solving the crime / mystery, she gets into so many humorous situations, you are on the edge of your seat laughing when you read about her adventures.

The books are fast reading too. I live in Mississippi and have lived in the Delta so I have visions of every place described in the book and Ms Haines hits the nail on the head when writing about the social atmosphere of the MS Delta - it is a land unto itself.
