I just finished reading Wishbones and I'm going to review it from three perspectives:
Technical (Mystery elements)
Writing (beauty of)
Overall taste (think reading candy)

Ms. Haines has taken the mystery elements to the ultimate with this edition of the Sarah Booth Delaney series. She weaves a highly complex plot of family dynamics related to murder, personal family dynamics (think MCs personal haint, Jitty), and a who-done-it cast of very suspicious characters with red herrings enough to keep the reader guessing until the last chapter.

She weaves a dysfunctional family plot of control and loathing from the director of the "Body Heat" movie Sarah Booth is cast in. An exotic set right out of the suspense film 'Rebecca', ghostly appearances that may or may not be real, and Sarah Booths personal love life entanglement that keeps the reader continually on the edge.

Her ability to turn a phrase into a visual symphony is inspiring. She knows the right balance between descriptions, setting the the scene, enriching a character, and advancing the plot.

IMO, this is her best work, not to say the installments before were lacking because the weren't but Haines humor, easy reading style, pull into a scene makes this book a no miss.
