““Change is inevitable, Sarah Booth. The art of living is not merely to accept change, but to embrace it.”Jitty, Bones to Pick
After enjoying Ham Bones a couple of weeks ago, I picked up Bones to Pick by Carolyn Haines. I loved it! Each book I ready by Haines (except for that one) leaves me guessing until the very end who committed the murder. I try each book to figure it out but I never come close! If you are looking for a page-turning, light read for the summer, then this is the book for you.
Below is the summary from Carolyn Haines:
Wickedly witty and full of more dirt than a debutante’s diary, the mysteries of Carolyn Haines bring the southern Delta to roaring, rollicking life…
Intrepid P.I. Sarah Booth Delaney has been known to single-handedly save her family’s Mississippi plantation, converse with Dahlia House’s ghost, and capture a killer or two. But when a local girl is found dead in a cotton field, it’s enough to make a lady toss back a Bloody Mary before noon on Sunday.
Someone held twenty-three-year-old Quentin McGee’s face down in the rich Southern soil until she suffocated. The lawmen think Quentin’s lover killed her. When the suspect’s brother hires Sarah to prove his sibling innocent, Sarah quickly learns that the victim had plenty of wealthy, powerful enemies. Each had a bone to pick with Quentin for writing a scandalous exposé on her hometown. Adding spice to the gumbo is the news that Quentin was due to inherit the family fortune the day after she was killed. . .and that a second book was in the works. From illicit lovers and outraged families to slandered aristocrats, everyone is a suspect—and no one is safe. . .Bones to Pick by Carolyn Haines
