Anne George’s delightful mysteries combine humor and suspense in equal measure. Patricia Anne and Mary Alice are “60-something” twin sisters who, after years of sibling rivalry, have discovered a mutual interest in folk art. However, Patricia Anne never dreamed that attending a gallery opening would land them in the middle of a murder investigation. Patricia Anne, a retired school teacher, is pleasantly surprised to see that Claire, a former student, is in charge of the show. The next day her surprise turns to shock when she hears that the gallery owner has died under suspicious circumstances, and she finds Claire huddled on her front porch. Claire claims to have narrowly survived an attack on her own life. But when the local art critic also dies mysteriously, Patricia Anne decides it’s high time someone gets to the bottom of things. And she is just the person to do it. Ruth Ann Phimister’s inspired reading captures all the good, clean fun of Murder On A Bad Hair Day while building the suspense to a fever pitch.

    " For my review of the series, see Murder on a Girls' Night Out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 2/12/2014

    " I adore these Southern Sisters Mysteries. The main characters are fantastic and the storylines keep you guessing. I have to admit I did not figure this one out. Quick, fun reads that I recommend to all cozy mystery fans! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy (Thoughts of Joy) | 2/11/2014

    " You can read my thoughts here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deana Pittman | 1/26/2014

    " I really did not enjoy this one as much as the first one. I still love the main characters; I just thought the "mystery" part of this one was lacking! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaclyn Cannon | 1/21/2014

    " Again, don't know if my opinion of this book is due to my mood in which I read it at the time, but I felt the characters unbelievable and bumbling. It was more than easy for me to set this book down when I needed to do something, a bad sign. Usually I have to tear myself away from books. I really only finished this book not even because I was curious how it turned out, but only because I have only not finished reading about 3 books in my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 1/21/2014

    " Fun book. I like the fact that Patricia Ann is not a good cook. Makes her seem more real. We always think of older women and being very domestic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristie J. | 1/19/2014

    " The narrator of the audiobook was excellent at performing the various southern voices and I liked the dynamics between the sisters. I'll probably listened to more Southern Sisters Mysteries... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 1/10/2014

    " I expected more from this series, something more in the vein of "Miss Julia." There was some language in the book and I felt the plot developed too slowly. I did enjoy the interaction between the two sisters, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 1/8/2014

    " Anne George's books don't pretend to be more than they are. What are they? Entertaining character sketches of two sisters and how they solve a murder. They always make me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 12/27/2013
