Novelist Anne George injects murder, mayhem, and laughs into her popular mysteries. Nominated for an Agatha Award, this hilarious tale of two “60 something” sisters reveals the deadly consequences of a hasty real estate purchase.

Retired Alabama school teacher Patricia Anne thinks her older sister, flamboyant Mary Alice, has lost her cotton-pickin’ mind. On a whim, Mary Alice bought the Skoot ’n’ Boot, the local country western night spot where she and her boyfriend hang out. Mary Alice insists it will be easy to run the club—until the previous owner is found executed, gangland style, in the club’s wishing well. Suddenly the sheriff is demanding answers, and a killer with unfinished business is sending messages even optimistic Mary Alice can’t ignore.

With her dramatic sense of timing, narrator Ruth Ann Phimister brings out both the wise-cracking fun and the nailbiting suspense.

    " I love Ann George and was so sad when she passed away because that would be the end of her hilarious series. I was not happy with the person narrating the book as she did not depict the sisters to be as hilarious are I thing Ann George meant for them to come across. I actually get bored and quit listening. She just made the characters, especially the school teacher sister, sound very boring, without the life and intrigue I got from her when "reading" the book before...... "

    " I enjoyed this book immensely. I read it many years ago and I reread and reread it all the time because it cheers you up and the characters are wonderful. I have read all the books in the series by this author, who is unfortunately deceased. I still laugh out loud at some of the antics the characters get up to. "

    " This is the first book in the mystery series featuring sisters in Birmingham who find themselves involved in murder cases. A very humorous series filled with (mostly) very likeable characters. I love the families of the sisters and their interaction with each other. I've read the series and find myself re-reading some for pure enjoyment and escape. "
