Buried Bones by Carolyn Haines

Buried Bones by Carolyn Haines: another Delta mystery that’s just as good as the first.

Once again we’re back into Sarah Boothe’s Souther world, but this time she’s trying to solve the murder of one of Zinnia’s most wonderful men - Lawrence Ambrose, an author who’s secrets lead directly to his demise.

Once again, we have Jitty the ghost haunting both Sarah Boothe and Dahlia House, but it a good motherly way. We also have the convoluted relationship between Harold and Sarah Boothe that seems to never be able to decide which way to go. Tinkie and Chablis are even back and more fiesty than ever.

As I said about Them Bones, the characters are just so real and wonderful that you can’t help but get sucked into the book. This one may be a bit more darker than the first, but it’s still a great read and I can’t wait to get the next book, Splintered Bones.
