Mystery Woman Sleuth
As bracing as a mint julep on a hot afternoon, Carolyn
Haines's Southern Belle mysteries kick sleuthing up a
notch with Sarah Booth Delaney, the sassiest heroine this
side of the Mississippi. When Broadway comes to the Delta,
Death takes a bowâ€”but Sarah Booth is the star suspect...
Zinnia is abuzz: displaced from its New Orleans venue, a
red-hot touring production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is
opening right in the heart of town, featuring hunky star
Graf Mileau! While most folks are excited, Sarah Booth,
who had her own brief stint on The Great White Wayâ€”and on
the arm of Mileau himselfâ€”is less than thrilled. Graf is
now linked with his costar, Renata Troviola, a dyed-in-the-
wool diva who plans to ride Graf's coattails all the way
to Hollywood. But Renata's trip to the top comes to a
screeching halt on the play's second night, when someone
laces her lipstick with cyanide.
The plot thickens when
Renata's brother arrives on the scene and makes it clear
exactly who he thinks the killer is. It seems Renata was
stirring up plenty of drama behind the scenes, making
enemies galore: her long-suffering makeup artist, an
extremely harsh critic, an angry audience member...even
boy toy Graf had a motive. But the most damning evidence
points to Sarah Booth herself, and before she can say Big
Daddy, she's topping Sheriff Coleman's list of suspects.
Being a P.I. accused of murder is bad enough, but being
investigated by the potential love of one's life is
downright mortifying. Now, to save her reputation and her
romance, Sarah Booth reckons sheâ€™ll have to bring the
curtain down on a mystery with more twists and turns than
the Old Muddy...
