In the midst of a cook-off at a posh spa, southern PI
Sarah Booth Delaney gets embroiled in a juicy murder in
the latest mystery from Carolyn Haines
For many years Jitty, Dahlia Houseâ€™s resident ghost, has
dreamed that Sarah Booth Delaney would have a child to
inherit the familyâ€™s ancestral home. Sarah Booth has
always had reservations about being a parent. There was
her work as an actress and PI, taking care of the house,
not to mention finding the right man. But when Jittyâ€™s
dream finally looks like itâ€™s going to come true, Sarah
Booth is crushed when it doesnâ€™t. Depressed, unable to act
or investigate, Sarah Booth finally allows her best friend
to whisk her away for a luxurious weekend vacation at a
special spa and cooking school.
The pampering and food go a long way toward making her
feel like her old self, but thereâ€™s another welcome
distractionâ€”thereâ€™s a beauty contest/cook-off going on to
find the spaâ€™s next spokesperson, and watching the drama
really takes her mind off of her woes. Sarah finds the
backbiting to be great funâ€”until the heated competition
boils over, the top contender is poisoned, and the prime
suspect hires Sarah Booth to clear her name.
Between swimsuit competitions and soufflĂ©s, Sarah Booth
Delaney and her best friend and partner, Tinkie, must find
out which of the ambitious young ladies is to blame in
Bone Appetit, the latest in Carolyn Hainesâ€™s delightfully
Southern cozy mystery series.
