Yes especially with the twists of a snake handling preacher.

Which character – as performed by Ruth Ann Phimister – was your favorite?

Patricia Ann

Yet another good one

Just when you thought there weren't any more eccentric characters, Anne George comes up with a passel of cyanide swilling snake handlers. I'm just sorry that audible does not carry the final book in this series. What a shame.

I love these gals

I love spending time with Mouse and Mary Alice, no matter what they're doing!

I sure wish someone would pick up where Anne George left off and give us some more adventures with these delightful Southern Sisters.

I'm almost finished listening to the series, I may have to listen to them over again when I need a little pick-me-up.

Ruth Ann Phimister is absolutely a delight, thank you SO much!

My favorite Anne George book!

Would you listen to Murder Carries a Torch again? Why?

Yes! This is my favorite Southern Sisters mystery! Love all of Anne George's books but Murder Carries a Torch is the best. All her mysteries have made me smile and want to listen over and over....

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Kept me thinking....

What about Ruth Ann Phimister’s performance did you like?

She was Mouse! I could actually see from her performance all the people in the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Better than"Murder She Wrote"".......

Any additional comments?

Try the books, you'll love them!
