Publisher's Summary

If only I hadn't kidnapped the dog...but the ransom paid the mortgage.... Now I seem to be a private eye.... I shouldn't have listened to that ghost....
Meet Sarah Booth Delaney...an unconventional Southern belle whose knack for uncovering the truth is about to make her the hottest detective in Zinnia, Mississippi...if it doesn't make her the deadest. No self-respecting lady would allow herself to end up in Sarah Booth's situation. Unwed, unemployed, and over 30, she's flat broke and about to lose the family plantation. Not to mention being haunted by the ghost of her great-great-grandmother's nanny, who never misses an opportunity to remind her of her sorry state - or to suggest a plan of action, like ransoming her friend's prize pooch to raise some cash.
But soon Sarah Booth's walk on the criminal side leads her deeper into unladylike territory, and she's hired to solve a murder. Did gorgeous, landed Hamilton Garrett V really kill his mother 20 years ago? And if so, what is Sarah Booth doing falling for this possible murderer? When she asks one too many questions and a new corpse turns up, she is suddenly a suspect herself...and Sarah Booth finds that digging up the bones of the past could leave her rolling over in her grave.

Murder in Mississippi

This book started out kind of slow and I almost stopped listening. But I continued and really enjoyed it. There were several plot twists and so many well developed engaging characters. I truly enjoyed this book. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.

Good Mistery, but...

This is a good cozy mystery, and by good I mean average. It’s a nice relaxing read and the narrator does a wonderful job, that is why I rated it so high.

What I liked was the fact that a completely hopeless woman, ready to settle for a marriage of convenience, which could also be called “legalized prostitution “, managed to find something to do with her life.

What I really disliked was the fact that she’s an awful friend, a stellar liar and a manipulator, with a conscience so thin you could call it anorexic.

Basically if it wasn’t for the narrator I would have asked to get my money back, that’s how much I disliked the female lead.

so much fun

i didnt know what to expect but i LOVED this fun light sexy southern mystery. i liked the narrators accent and her skill with diff characters throughout the book. i sped up the narrator as shes was a bit slow for me..i really like that the listener can adjust the speed. the story was quirky, unexpected and facinating. im now a huge fan and super excited i have found a new cozy mystery series to listen to.
