Murder on a Girls' Night Out: A Southern Sisters Mystery by Anne George
A Different Kind of Sister Act
Patricia Anne -- "Mouse" -- is respectful, respectable, and demure, a perfect example of genteel Southern womanhood. Mary Alice -- "Sister" -- is big, brassy, flamboyant, and bold. Together they have a knack for finding themselves in the center of some of Birmingham's most unfortunate unpleasantness.
Country Western is red hot these days, so overimpulsive Mary Alice thinks it makes perfect sense to buy the Skoot 'n' Boot bar -- since that's where the many-times-divorced "Sister" and her boyfriend du jour like to hang out anyway. Sensible retired schoolteacher Patricia Anne is inclined to disagree -- especially when they find a strangled and stabbed dead body dangling in the pub's wishing well. The sheriff has some questions for Mouse and her sister Sister, who were the last people, besides the murderer, of course, to see the ill-fated victim alive. And they had better come up with some answers soon -- because a killer with unfinished business has begun sending them some mighty threatening messages...
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a wonderfully fun and quick cozy mystery. Love the main characters, Patricia Anne and her sister Mary Alice. Really look forward to reading more of the 'Southern Sister' mysteries and getting to know them better. I enjoyed the simple humor that the author used. Found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. The solution to the mystery was a little rushed for me, but overall a wonderful read.
