Bless Her Dead Little Heart

A Southern Ladies Mystery, #1

Bless Her Dead Little Heart is good because as the bodies started to pile up, more questions arise. It was interesting that someone would want to kill their own family member, especially an immediate family. That is what the author is trying to get across.

What will someone do for a bit of money? They would obviously lie, cheat and kill anyone that is in their way. As family members started to show up, the list of suspects got bigger. However Dickce and An’gel do not mind the company. Their house is full of southern hospitality and even their housekeeper is okay with the company.

I liked that the murders were not done with the usual murder weapons. Spiders and wet floors made the lists of suspects even longer for me. Anyone can spill water. I was guessing until the end. This is only the first book in the series, however I have a feeling that these sisters have a lot more mysteries to solve.
