Publisher's Summary

Mississippi native Carolyn Haines writes spicy mysteries teeming with all the eccentricities of Southern society. Bones to Pick continues the adventures of sassy P.I. Sarah Booth Delaney.

Quentin McGee, author of a sensational exposé, has been murdered, and her lover, Allison, is charged with the crime. Sarah is hired to find the real culprit, but the investigation won't be easy. Quentin had so many enemies, including her own family and all those rich, powerful people mentioned in her book. As scandal brews, the suspect list continues to grow, and Sarah fears that the killer isn't finished yet.

Haines' Southern Belle mystery, together with a spirited narration, draws listeners into the heart of the Mississippi Delta.

Fun and light

Was this THE BEST book I've listened to? No, but it was fun and light and I enjoyed it! In fact, I'm getting the next Sarah Booth Delaney book to listen too.

Another Super Bones Mystery

What a great addition to a wonderful series. If you like the cozy, you're in for a treat, a unique setting and voice combined with a mystery for you to solve. This series never fails to satisfy.

great fun

I enjoyed this book immensely. The main characters were fun. The rhetoric reminded me of how some of my girlfriends and I talk. The story line was good albeit a bit predictable. Worth the time to listen.

Southern Stereotypes meets Bad Writing

The narrator was good or I would not have been able to stick this one out.

Beside the heroine obsessing on her sad lovelife, the family ghost obsessing on the heroine's lovelife and the heroine's best friend and PI partner obsessing on her lovelife, the mystery doesn't have a lot of room. Luckily it is a very thin mystery.

There was also some factual errors that were just due to sloppy research. For instance, it's been decades since anyone has had to go to Sweden for a sexual reassignment operation.
