Murder Gets A Life (Southern Sisters Mystery #5) by Anne George

Murder Gets A Life (Southern Sisters Mystery, #5)Murder Gets A Life by Anne George

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In the breezy, very funny Murder Gets a Life, the fifth Southern Sisters mystery from Alabama writer Anne George, petite, married Patricia Ann and her thrice-widowed amazon of a sister discover that murder's a family affair, thanks to Mary Alice's new in-laws. There's a corpse with a hog-butchering knife stuck in his chest, but plot's hardly the point in a story chock-full of engaging characters and knowing humor. When Patricia Ann wonders if the murder victim was married, Mary Alice says, "Probably, his clothes matched."


Love this series. I enjoy the writing style of the author. The relationship between the flamboyant Mary Alice and her laid back sister Patricia Anne is wonderful and the things that they manage to stumble into are always a treat to read about.

I would absolutely recommend it. I have read all of the books up to here and I am so happy that your challenge lead me to work on reading the rest of the series.
