THEM BONES (Amateur Sleuth-Zinnia-MS-Cont) – G+
Haines, Carolyn – 1st in series
Bantam, 1999-Paperback
Sara Booth Delaney is trying to save Dahlia House, the antebellum family home, where she lives alone, except for Jitty, the ghost of her great-great-great-Grandmother’s nanny. She gets some money by taking her friend’s dog, sending a ransom note and pretending to rescue him. In turn, her friend wants Sara to find out who killed Hamilton the Fourth and his wife in separate, supposed, accidents.
*** It’s not much of a mystery, although I didn’t predict the ending. What it does have is delightful characters, a strong sense of place and very good dialogue. This is a light, fun, entertaining diversion.
