Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Carolyn Haines visits sleuth Sarah Booth Delaney and the Mississippi Delta in Buried Bones, the second novel in this popular series. Local legend Lawrence Ambrose knows the secrets of everyone in town, and he isn’t above spilling the beans in a tell-all biography. But when his biographer turns up dead and the manuscript goes missing, it’s up to Sarah to dig up the truth.

yet another interesting continuation

many hours of enjoyment listing to this one - and of course like any great story it demands that you go on to #3 - love Sweetie the dog - could do without the ghost - but all in all it's a great listen

keeps getting better

sarah is a today woman, without the forensics, without a plerhora of romance, ut believably real, she still manages to solve some very good conundrums as a fledgling pi...glad there are more...

Southern, Sassy and Soulful Fun

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I want all my Daddy Girl friends to get hooked on these Southern, Sassy and Soulful fun characters. I loved this book. It's one of those relaxing fun reads where you get laughs and entertained throughout the book. Sarah Booth Delaney with her family antebellum home complete with haunting of Gitty the ghost , best friend Tinky and her ability to sleuth in and out of trouble, leads readers in and out of hysterical situations.

What other book might you compare Buried Bones to and why?

This book is a mixture of Sweet Home Alabama meets the YaYa Sisterhood with a little Janet Evanich crazy antics of Stephanie Plum series!

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved the idea of Moon Lake casino with its historic setting of an old riverboat gothic architectural casino from the 1960's being filled with scrapbooks of famous people and preserved antiques and mystery of its own.

Who was the most memorable character of Buried Bones and why?

There were many interesting characters but the way Gitty, the ghost , interacts in her ever changing wardrobe with the main character Sarah Booth as her guide to life and her family history, and guides her through so many thought provoking moments makes her my favorite.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to continue the series. Everyone needs a little Sarah Booth and friends escape from reality.

Awful narration killed the story

Would you try another book written by Carolyn Haines or narrated by Kate Forbes?

I dont think so. I couldnt get a sense of the story at all due to the weird narration, Often she would stop in the middle of a sentence and then keep going so you spent the next couple of sentences making sense of that first sentence. There were rare moments when she would read fluently and then lose it again. Ive tried three times and cant get past chapter three

Has Buried Bones put you off other books in this genre?

Yes

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Forbes?

Tanya Eby

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Buried Bones?

No idea

Any additional comments?

Awful complete waste of a credit
