Another interesting adventure with Sarah Booth in the Mississippi Delta... I enjoy the author's use of vocabulary and her development of characters. ( )

Sarah Booth Delaney is at it again in her 2d mystery adventure. The plotting is a bit weak, but I enjoy the Southern charm. Good vacation reading. ( )

I loved the second book just as much as the first one. We get to see more of Sarah Booth relationships and more of Jitty the Ghost. ( )

Well written, fast paced murder mystery. Jitty, the ghost, just had a few "cameo" appearances in this book. Sarah Booth gets her dog, Sweety Pie, as a Christmas present. Hints of romance, but that was enough. The bad guys are caught. Sarah Booth's mystery man, Hamilton Garrett V, appears in the last few pages to twirl her around the dance floor and give her a New Year's kiss. Perfect ending. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553581724, Mass Market Paperback)

Private investigation isn't on the list of a southern belle's most desirable accomplishments--but it's saved Sarah Booth Delaney's Delta homestead. Now all she has to cope with is its bossy antebellum ghost who is determined to save Sarah--from spinsterhood. Then comes the perfect social occasion: Lawrence Ambrose's dinner party...

Buried Bones

Ambrose, once a famous man of southern letters, is planning a comeback: a delicious tell-all with a bitchy ex-model as his "biographer." As he taunts his dinner guests with the news that his book will blow the lid off Zinnia's darkest secrets, it becomes plain that each and every guest has a secret--and wants Ambrose to keep it. When the morning-after mess includes a bloody corpse and the manuscript of the biography disappears, Sarah Booth goes digging for answers. But many who hold them are six feet under--or soon will be--and if she doesn't tread carefully, she could join them any day now...
