Harper Lee Award winner Carolyn Haines has won fans nationwide for her offbeat Sarah Booth Delaney mysteries set in the Mississippi Delta. The first entry in this acclaimed series, Them Bones finds Sarah in a bad way: broke, unemployed, 30 and unwed, and about to lose her family's plantation. But this Southern Belle isn't licked yet. Involving herself in a slightly shady enterprise, Sarah soon gets roped into a decades-old murder investigation.

Ingenious plot, nice amusing writing style. Good evocation of Southern small town life, and engaging narrator. Not sure about the ghost, though, but it does allow an extra perspective on what the heroine is thinking when she is alone at home

Love it! Fun, light, entertaining - a great new series to listen to.

This is what I imagine a typical Southern society tale would be, in that the telling of the tale is very languorous. I’m sure that if I’d set the narration speed to 2, it would have sounded like a normal speech speed. But, this didn’t detract from the narrative, it was absolutely on point. I loved the nanny. In turns quaint old Southern manners, then quixotically 20th century. This is an era I know nothing about (having grown up with Regency, Victorian, Edwardian and Elizabethan literature), but I find intriguing, albeit convoluted. Sarah is an atypical Southern Belle and getting to discover what happens to her next, is going to be quite the adventure. Miss Maud Silver, she is not!

The book started off slow for me. it didn't immediately grab my attention, but I kept listening and really got involved in the characters and the story line. I will read another of her books.
