Publisher's Summary

Anne George’s novels offer a delightful mix of gentle comedy and compelling mystery. Murder Runs in the Family finds two feisty 60-something sisters doing a little amateur sleuthing into the death of a visiting genealogist. Mary Alice has spared no expense for her daughter’s wedding. Two days after the glittering affair, Mary Alice and Patricia Anne are spending a fascinating lunch listening to the groom’s cousin explain the ’dog-eat-dog" world of professional genealogy. Minutes later they are shocked to learn that the genteel woman they were just speaking with has fallen from a courthouse window. Determined to get to the bottom of things, Patricia Anne soon finds herself enmeshed in a world where proud old families are willing to kill to keep their ancestor’s dirty laundry from being aired. Full of good clean fun, Anne George’s novels deliver nonstop suspense tempered with light-hearted laughs and a cast of quirky characters. Ruth Ann Phimister’s rollicking narration perfectly captures both the love of family and iron will of these two Southern ladies.

Love the sisters

Would you listen to Murder Runs in the Family again? Why?

I will not listen to Murder Runs in the Family again, any time soon because I am excited about listening to the other books in the series. I might go back, later and listen to the whole series again.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't have a most memorable moment or favorite scene, but I love the dialogue between the sisters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Several time during the story, I laughed out loud as the sisters reminded me so much of myself and my own sister.

Any additional comments?

The books in this series are not serious stories. Instead, they are fun, lighthearted and a little bit silly.

Disappointed

This series was recommended by a fellow cozy mystery group member. I was looking for some safe listening material for myself that wouldn't offend the often present ears of my young grandchildren. I got through the first three or so, but there is a considerable amount of swearing. I will be returning this.

I love Anne George's Southern Sisters mysteries.

Love Anne George. I wish there were more. Would love to read more about Brother, Haley's pregnancy and the adventures Mary Alice should have with husband number 4. audible pleas finish out this series with the final book-- Murder Dances With Elvis.
