Bones of a feather by Carolyn Haines (RB Digital Library loan). holy manipulation Batman! Tinkie and Sarah Booth really sink into a pile of horse excrement in this one! Just when you think you got the story figured out. You’re Wrong try again! This time The girls are off to Natchez MS to investigate an insurance claim for the wealthy sisters of a mad pirates fortune.. but the claim turns into a kidnapping and murder case with questionable suspects all around. This one was frustrating in the little snips of info given out til the end and at times confusing.., However, the next book is already downloaded and ready for the listening.

It is what it is and exactly what I'm looking for in the life-sucking heat of summer: Non-challenging, cute, fun, brain candy. I'm enjoying them all, quite a bit.

Although I'll say this: They're better when they stay in the South, in my opinion. The ones set in California or other places don't have a strong sense of place, and the sense of place is one of the main characters in these books.

Disclosure: I live in Mississippi, although in the hills, not the Delta. :D

I genuinely enjoy this series - one of my favourites. The mystery in this book was a good one with lots of tangles and twists. But I prefer the mysteries that take place in Zinnia with the usual cast of characters playing more prominent roles. And while I appreciate the dilemma Sarah Booth and Tinkie find themselves in with their significant others, I'd prefer it get sorted out so they can go forward without the guilt trips. :) Still a very engrossing novel and I'm looking forward to more from Ms. Haines and the cast of characters from Zinnia.

I read through books very quickly, and knew that I wanted to save this for the beach, so I ordered it and sat on it until I was in the car headed to Florida. What a great treat it was.

I love Sarah Booth Delaney cozy mysteries, and I think that Carolyn Haines' stories get better with each one. This one takes place in Natchez, and it serves as a great backdrop to a fun, crazy, wild story.

Two sisters with a sordid, murky family history call Sarah Booth and Tinkie to investigate an insurance claim. Of course, the case is that and much more, and hi-jinx ensue. Fun, clever and quirky.

Great series - can't wait to read the next one.
