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.
Eulalee McBride admits that she killed her husband and begs Sarah Booth Delaney to dig up the dirt on hubby to prove that he only got what he rightfully deserved. However, when a number of suspects surfaces, Sarah Booth must piece together a confusing case while protecting her own neck. Third in the Mississippi Delta series.
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.
A perfect southern mystery. See review for Them Bones for more detail.
A good read combining, a ghost, horses and a mystery.
Continuing with the exploits of Sarah Booth Delaney, Southern belle turned private detective. It was a quick and easy read, fun with an insight into a way of life which makes one shudder and smile in equal parts.
Lot's of fun and good story
This series just keeps getting better and better. It's fast, easy reading, funny and overall enjoyable. If you like cozies, you'll like this series.
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.
