Rosabelle is certain she’s going to be murdered because ofher will, and it soon becomes clear that she’s right. Suddenly instead of a quiet summer, the sisters find themselves smack dab in the middle of a murder, complete with duplicitous suspects and motives.
James writes with style, and the Ducote sisters make quite the sleuthing duo (with an assist from Diesel, of coruse!) The mystery is interesting, the characters charming and quirky, and we look forward to seeing more of the sleuthing sisters! Four stars! - ROCCO LOTEMPIO

Suddenly caught up in a deadly tangle of duplicitous suspects and deep-fried motives, it will take all of the sisters’ Southern charm to catch a decidedly ill-mannered killer
