Publisher's Summary

In Carolyn Haines's next charming mystery, Southern belle turned PI Sarah Booth Delaney digs into a cold case when a film crew comes to town to research the death of a prominent family's son.

Private investigator Sarah Booth Delaney and her friends are celebrating New Year's Eve at the party of the year, a smashing Winter White Garden party at the newly renovated King Cotton Boutique Hotel. It's a dazzling success, until Frangelica "Sister" McFee walks through the door. Sarah Booth knew Sister in college, before Sister became a best-selling author and moved to New York, and fame and fortune don't seem to have tempered her arrogance and cruelty.

Sister's latest book is a memoir about the death of her mother and brother many years ago. Now, a film about the book is in the works, and a film crew has descended upon Zinnia, Mississippi, to tell the complete story. The film crew soon realizes there may be more to the story than meets the eye - or is told in Sister's memoir - and they hire Sarah Booth to discover the absolute truth about those deaths so many years ago. But Sarah Booth quickly realizes that someone is desperate to keep the truth hidden and will go to any lengths necessary to protect a long-held secret.

Keep the Politics OUT

I typically love these books but found part of the plot extremely irritating. I understand that you were probably writing this book in 2015 and 2016. HOWEVER, making a senatorial candidate look like a buffoon because of his opposition to Putin was a mistake. We are now in 2018 and it is undeniable that Putin has been trying to erode our democracy with interference in our election process and seeks to cause division in the United States. Putin is a REAL threat to our country. This plot point was simply stupid and very irritating. Every senator and representative either in office or seeking office should be concerned about protecting our democracy from this foreign threat.

endearing characters fun plot

Sarah Booth is at it again solving murders. I have come to look forward this southern cozy mystery series. It is light reading but the characters are engaging and the narration is superb. It is a better the averagel formula book that does not demand anything but to relax and enjoy. This is my go to series when I want to have a little feel good fun.
