Publisher's Summary

Anne George’s delightful mysteries combine humor and suspense in equal measure.

Patricia Anne and Mary Alice are “60-something” twin sisters who, after years of sibling rivalry, have discovered a mutual interest in folk art. However, Patricia Anne never dreamed that attending a gallery opening would land them in the middle of a murder investigation. Patricia Anne, a retired school teacher, is pleasantly surprised to see that Claire, a former student, is in charge of the show.

The next day her surprise turns to shock when she hears that the gallery owner has died under suspicious circumstances, and she finds Claire huddled on her front porch. Claire claims to have narrowly survived an attack on her own life. But when the local art critic also dies mysteriously, Patricia Anne decides it’s high time someone gets to the bottom of things. And she is just the person to do it.

Ruth Ann Phimister’s inspired reading captures all the good, clean fun of Murder on a Bad Hair Day while building the suspense to a fever pitch.

I so wish Anne George was still alive and writing

I have yet to find a writer who captures Anne's style of writing. Humor, realness, intrigue and innocence. We love listening to her books on audio. The narrator is/was the perfect pick for Anne's stories.

Already read these, now listening

I read this whole series about 10 years ago and loved them! Now I am listening to them on audible books. I think the narrorater is perfect for these books. They are light reading, humorous but with a mystery to each one that keeps you guessing. I recommend them to anyone that likes mysteries and funny characters. I wish PBS would make a series of shows based on these books.

Keeps getting better

Patricia Anne is the ultimate Southern lady who raised her family in the fifties of Birmingham, Alabama, and now is enjoying her golden years. Her descriptions of that city are are spot on and her manners southern perfect with a soupçon of humor underneath it all. They are enchanting: warts, murders, loving and bickering family, and all.

Parts were hilarious

A cute cozy mystery with two bantering sisters. Parts were hilarious and not a bad mystery, but it did not necessarily keep my attention. I had a hard time finishing it.

disoriented by character development

disappointing follow-up to first book
surprising plot twist at end, but main characters came across as completely different from first book (not simply evolved)
willing to try third of series
