Overview

Murder Runs in the Family (Southern Sisters Series #3) by Anne George

Mary Alice has spared nothing for her only daughter's wedding — from seventy-five yards of bridal train to gourmet food for over three hundred guests and enough glittering elegance to make Mary Alice think about finding herself a fourth rich husband to pay for it all.

Practical Patricia Anne has put away her aunt-of-the-bride blue chiffon and settled back into domesticity when fun-loving Mary Alice calls to say they have a post-wedding date with a genealogist from the groom's side of the family. Lunch is a fascinating lesson on the hazards of finding dirty linens in ancestral boudoirs that ends abruptly when their guest scurries off with the local judge, leaving the sisters with their mouths open — and finishing their luncheon companion's cheesecake — when the police arrive.

Their mysterious guest has taken a plunge from the ninth floor of the courthouse building — an apparent suicide. But given the scandals a nosy genealogist might have uncovered, the sisters are betting that some proud Southern family is making sure their shameful secrets stay buried. . .along with anyone who tries to dig them up.Mary Alice has spared nothing for her only daughter's wedding — from seventy-five yards of bridal train to gourmet food for over three hundred guests and enough glittering elegance to make Mary Alice think about finding herself a fourth rich husband to pay for it all.

With the world the way it is, it is nice to just read for the sheer fun of it. This is the 2nd read for me of this series, and I'm enjoying it as much as the first read-through.

Anne George's characters are so truly Southern and so completely Sisters (with all the comforts and baggage). I read this series about 10 years ago and am re-reading them. I still find myself laughing out loud at the antics of the Southern Sisters.

Bought this item for a friend - getting her hooked on the series. I have already read the Sisters series - LOVED it. Laughed until I cried half the time. Some of the story line seemed far fetched - but - believable with the author's writng style. Read the servies first in print but was able to purchase some of the books on audio too. I think everyone who has a sibling can relate to Mary Alice & Patricia Ann (a/k/a Mouse).

Murder can be fun! Well, at least in books. Anne George, like Lisa Scottoline, has made her mysteries fun and entertaining. The main character of Anne's Southern Sister mysteries, Patricia Anne, has a colorful family (such as Pukey Lukey and Aunt Sister), who add to the fun of the book. And, Patricia Anne's everyday chores (doing laundry, gardening, walking Woofer) pull readers into her life and make them feel right at home! In today's world, where the latest news just adds to worries about wars, layoffs, and fear that 401Ks may soon be 101Ks, it is a relief to get away from all of life's worries with one of Anne's books.

you'll love these Southern Sisters. I especially loved this one because it took me home to Florida. It is refreshing to read a novel with a SOUTHERN setting.
