Novelist Anne George injects murder, mayhem, and laughs into her popular mysteries. Nominated for an Agatha Award, this hilarious tale of two “60 something” sisters reveals the deadly consequences of a hasty real estate purchase.
Retired Alabama school teacher Patricia Anne thinks her older sister, flamboyant Mary Alice, has lost her cotton-pickin’ mind. On a whim, Mary Alice bought the Skoot ’n’ Boot, the local country western night spot where she and her boyfriend hang out. Mary Alice insists it will be easy to run the club - until the previous owner is found executed, gangland style, in the club’s wishing well. Suddenly the sheriff is demanding answers, and a killer with unfinished business is sending messages even optimistic Mary Alice can’t ignore.
With her dramatic sense of timing, narrator Ruth Ann Phimister brings out both the wise-cracking fun and the nail-biting suspense.

Darker than Expected
I adore this whole series.
God bless the talent of Anne George and Ruth Ann Phimister. This series is the reason I joined Audible. I have literally listened to 100's and 100's of audio books and I revisit this series regularly. The characters are so good I wish I could blink them into existence. So sorry Mrs. George left this world way too early.
One conversation between sisters Patricia Ann and Mary Alice is about Patricia Ann's husband, Fred, describing the gusset in his boxer shorts as the "ball room"! Too funny.
Her voice interpretation of the characters is brilliant!! The talent of the narrator makes the books characters leap off the page.
The books are funny, original, southern and loveable. Through Anne George's mysteries I have learned about genealogy, sea turtles, snake handlers -and- that a great book can be interesting, endearing, funny and all without salty language, explicit sex scenes etc.!! And I am a fan of kick butt, action, hard core detective novels!
