I picked this book out of the library and now I have a new way of selecting books - I take with my smartphone and check on "Goodreads" what other readers thought. Usually my tastes concur with others, but this time... I blew it. Everyone was writing how sweet and southern the author is and her main character... How the writing is so charming... I found it ridiculous and so complicated just to remember the long list of characters she introduces to the book, no wonder she has a "list of characters ...more

Everyone – including her step-daughter thinks she is rich, but her husband became ...more

I tried to read this before Christmas--unfortunately I am now associating the book with the bout of stomach flu I got at the time--sigh. Maybe I'll finish it next year.

Aka Patricia Houck Sprinkle.

When I met and married Bob, he looked over our budget and demanded, "Why don’t you write a mystery to pay for all the ones you buy?" I immediately knew I wanted to put a body in a building where I’d once worked. However, being over-endowed with the Protestant ethic, I wrote "important" things first and only wrote the mystery in my spare time, so my first mystery, Murder
