Murder Gets a Life­ A Southern Sisters Mystery

A Southern Sisters Mystery

Patricia Anne can´t imagine why Mary Alice is in such an uproar over her son Ray´s new bride. Sunshine Dabbs is Ucute as can be," even if she is a bit unconventional, which should hardly come as a shock to Mary Alicc given that she´s the one who raised her boy. But with all her motherly instincts, Mary Alice is sure that this sweet little blonde Barbie doll--who met her son in Bora Bora after she won the trip on Wheel of Fortune--thinks she´s found herself a fortune in Ray´s hefty wallet.

The sisters can´t wait to get a look at Sunshine´s family, and quite a look it turns out to be. As soon as Meemaw Turkett invites Mary Alice and Patricia Anne into her cozy trailer on the family compound they stumble over a corpse, and Meemaw´s best hog butchering knife is stuck in its chest. Meemaw, a Cabbage Patch look-alike and Sunshine´s grandmother, guardian, and the family matriarch is shocked to pieces and immediately summons the family to her trailer. Pawpaw, a lovable bearded grump has his own trailer, and their grown kids each enjoy a private home-away-from-home on the five-trailer compound.

The discovery of the mysterious body brings in Mary Alice´s nemesis, good ol´ boy Sheriff Reuse, who, she knows from her experience at the Skoot ´n´ Boot, is nothing but trouble. Within minutes, the compound is strewn with a weird collection of friends, neighbors and relatives. There´s Meemaw´s spooky channeler, ready to give guidance as needed; Sunshine´s jilted boyfriend skulking around; a bunch of dogs ready to attack...and Kerrigan, Sunshine´s mostly absentee mama, who stars in the kind of video flicks that might even shock Mary Alice.
