charming crime caper July 5 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
After her failure to attain her dream of becoming an actress, Sarah Booth Delaney returned to her hometown of Zinnia, Mississippi to try and save her childhood home Dahlia House. She succeeds after stealing her future partner's dog and collecting the fee. Now the business is doing will and the business is gaining recognition and rich clients. Except for her love life, Sara Booth's life is perfect even if the household haunt Jitty, a servant of a former Delaney occupant, nags her to get married and have children.

Her latest case is to find out who killed Quentin McGee, a writer who dished out the dirt on the rich and powerful in her tell-all book. The police have arrested Allison Tatum whose shoeprint were found at the murder scene and witnesses reported a lover's quarrel believe the victim and the suspect shortly before she died. The problem in this case is that there are so many other people who wanted Quentin dead because she laid bare their secrets for the whole world to know. As with every case involving Sarah Booth, she winds up in danger but this time her partner is also in the hands of a dangerous serial killer.

Carolyn Haines is a writer that always delivers a charming crime caper that is a combination delightful and humorous regional mystery inside a foreboding southern gothic. Readers will enjoy this terrific tale whether they solve the case or not because BONES TO PICK is a beguiling tale. A fast paced plot, a creative storyline and excellent drawn characters make this cozy something out of the ordinary.

Wonderful Series! Feb. 15 2008
By Samantha Augustus - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I started "Them Bones", I had to run out and purchase the rest of Ms. Haines series. I absolutely love her style of writing and her ability to keep the reader glued to the storyline is without question. She is on a par with no other. I'm eagerly anticipating "Wishbones". The only flaw -and one I've noticed with the last three authors I've read - is that the previous book's "killer" in a succession of books that carry over the storyline into the next book is given away or told in the book you're currently reading. If you've read the books in order, there's no problem. If you're new to an author and you pick up a book out of sequence, you're going to find out who did what to whom in the last story and have no reason to read it! That was my only disappointment in this author as well as as a few others I've recently read. Mentioning a prior book is fine but why blow the chance for a sale of a book or ruin the read for a possible new fan of the author by giving too much away in a current book from the one before it?! Is this the new trend of authors? I really enjoy Ms. Haines and that I'm reading her books in order. I hope these authors read some of these reviews so they'll know what NOT to divulge. It will ensure keeping loyal readers and it won't turn away new ones who don't have to read the author's other books because they'll already know the outcome of a previous book because the author gave away who dunnit! As already stated, not everyone can always read a series in chronological order. Other than that one negative observation, this reader is looking forward to and anticipating any and all new books by Ms. Haines. I love the personal storyline of Sarah Booth Delaney and I can always count on the author to keep me guessing to the very end of the book as to who the culprit is. Keep those "twists" and "turns" in the narrative coming!!

Bones to pick by Carolyn Haines July 10 2012
By D. R. Meredith - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bones To Pick (Southern Belle Mysteries)Digging up the dirt on everyone you know and publishing it in a tell-all book is a sure way to get yourself killed. Quentin McGee can testify to that--if she weren't dead, allegedly murdered by her lesbian lover, Allison Tatum. Sarah Booth Delaney, Zinnia, Mississippi, PI and failed Southern Belle, is hired to prove Allison didn't kill her lover. She wasn't necessarily hired to prove who did it, but that trivial detail doesn't stop Sarah Booth and her partner, Tinkie. God knows there are enough suspects at Quentin's funeral to populate a plantation ball. Both Quentin and Allison were graduates of a respectable and very exclusive boarding school for southern girls, and the alums show up in force, all very unhappy about having their secrets revealed in Quention's book. Tinkie's kidnapping by a serial killer adds a sense of urgency to the plot, and the relationship between Sheriff Coleman Peters and Sarah Booth heats up a bit. This is another fun addition to the Southern Belle series.

a fun romp through the Mississippi Delta Aug. 21 2007
By Lexi Andreas - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bones to Pick is indeed a charming and fun mystery. It's not literary, it's not heavy. In fact, the end is slightly dragged down by all the thematic messages the characters start spouting.

Still...this Haines mystery does not disappoint in providing a madcap investigation by two unlikely partners (and their hounds) with a bit of complicated love interest and an opinionated ghost thrown in.

Any reader would be wise, however, to start at the beginning of the series, and not to take details too seriously (such as a patient having just had major thoracic surgery getting up from his bed to break up a fight.) Quick fun read with characters I've come to enjoy.

Light and funny southern style Feb. 23 2008
By Kel - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
#6 of the Sarah Booth series- This was an interesting mystery. This is the first book of this series I have read. It wasn't bad. The main characters are Tinkie and Sarah Booth. They are PI's and in this book they are trying to prove innocence. Allison has been accused of murdering her lesbian lover, Quinten. Tinkie and Sarah are trying to find the real killer. The mystery is unraveled along with the personal lives of Tinkie and Sarah. The writing style is witty and fun with southern flair. I enjoyed it and I have already ordered the 1st in the series.
