Anne George's best-selling Southern Sisters mysteries offer delightful mixtures of offbeat characters, charming humor, and intriguing crimes. In Murder Gets a Life, middle-aged sisters Mary Alice and Patricia Ann are sleuthing their way through a mystery that is hotter than Alabama in August. Mary Alice's son has married Sunshine, a petite blond who is cute as a button. Her family, however, lives in a junk-filled trailer compound dotted with rusty engines and pit bulls. When Mary Alice and Patricia Ann pay a call on the family, the sisters hardly have time to meet Sunshine's spirit-channeling grandmother before they stumble over a large corpse on her floor. The local sheriff just can't seem to get moving in the summer heat. So it's up to the Southern Sisters to discover who the dead man is, and why Sunshine has suddenly disappeared. So grab a glass of sweet tea and get ready to spend a few hours with two of the most resourceful sleuths south of the Mason-Dixon line.

"This fifth Southern Sisters mystery is a lively romp through the August heat of Alabama. There's much more interest in cooking and dressing than murder, but that's okay because Mary Alice Crane and Patricia Anne Hallowell are a delightful nutty duo who happen upon trouble in between cooling off with sips of iced water. No one seems particularly upset by the "Indian" pinned to the linoleum by Meemaw Turkett's best hog-butchering knife or by the partial disappearance of Sunshine, Ray Crane's brand new Barbie doll of a bride. Much more important are what to wear, where to eat, and the comradery of these two 60-something sisters. Ruth Ann Phimister rollicks, bringing to life sisters, Turketts, and all sundry in the debilitating heat. This could be called an incidental murder mystery. B.H.B.
