Publisher's Summary

Anne George’s best-selling Southern Sisters mysteries offer delightful mixtures of offbeat characters, charming humor, and intriguing crimes.

In Murder Gets a Life, middle-aged sisters Mary Alice and Patricia Ann are sleuthing their way through a mystery that is hotter than Alabama in August. Mary Alice’s son has married Sunshine, a petite blond who is cute as a button. Her family, however, lives in a junk-filled trailer compound dotted with rusty engines and pit bulls.

When Mary Alice and Patricia Ann pay a call on the family, the sisters hardly have time to meet Sunshine’s spirit-channeling grandmother before they stumble over a large corpse on her floor. The local sheriff just can’t seem to get moving in the summer heat. So it’s up to the Southern Sisters to discover who the dead man is, and why Sunshine has suddenly disappeared.

So grab a glass of sweet tea and get ready to spend a few hours with two of the most resourceful sleuths south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Old southern Belles meet trailer trash rich

Hysterically funny tale Reminds me in many ways of my grandmother and her friends in their way of behavior and speech.

Absolutely hilarious.

I didn't think there could be any one more quirky and eccentric then mouse and sister. That is until sister acquired a new set of in-laws, or maybe you should call them outlaws. So hilarious I kept my husband up all night by laughing out loud, couldn't put it down.
