      I really liked the mystery part of this one, where the baby came from and what happened to the mother. I was glad that Sarah Booth and crew were on the case and did right by Pleasant. What didn't work for me with this one was how crazy Tinkie got, she was beyond out of control. But that was nothing compared to Sarah Booth and her men. I don't get why they all are enamored by her and can be friends with all the other guys and not try to take them out of contention. Jitty's Delaney heir talk is ge [...]

      Sarah Booth hasn’t had time to begin to process her shattered engagement when she finds an infant on her doorstep and bloody footprints leading away. With Tinkie stepping in to care for the child (not the best idea in this case), Sarah Booth and Sheriff Coleman begin a desperate search for the baby’s mother.

      I've enjoyed The Sarah Booth Delaney series from Carolyn Haines since she wrote "Them Bones" back in the late '90's. Unfortunately, I am at the point where Jitty and I could be roommates, hoping that Sarah Booth settles down or at least narrows down her options. I get that she's smart, beautiful, and charming, but I'm over the whole "every man in the Mississippi Delta wants her" story line.I didn't finish this book, and that's unfortunate because the story about Sarah Booth's parents death is be [...]

      Rock-a-Bye Bones by Carolyn Haines is the 16th book in the Sarah Booth Delaney series, and I loved it!! I love the whole series, and can't wait for more. Not only is this book really funny at times, it also can be emotional because I feel like I know Sarah Booth and the other main characters in the book. As always Rock-a-Bye-Bones is a great mystery with romance thrown in, 3 men want Sarah Booth. There are twists and turns around every corner. Just when I thought I figured out the who done it, I [...]

      Sarah Booth Delaney and her funny friends are some of my favorite characters to rejoin every year when a new book is released. I very much enjoyed this story because it leads us to believe that Sarah Booth may be making some big life changes soon and because we are finding out more and more information about the murder of her parents. Their story is a subplot to the larger mystery at hand, but it is so intriguing and has me dying to know exactly what happened. In the latest installment, Sarah Bo [...]

      Sarah has honed her detective skills to a fine art in this delightful Southern town. This story “rocks” from a baby left on her porch and the return of a deadly enemy splaying bullets--only with her many friends’ help does she save the day. The author is impressive with her ability to bring these characters to life so we can easily identify with their wants and needs. Pet lovers, who feel their animals have hidden abilities, will be on the edge of their seat for most of the book. This book [...]

The mystery was good and I was kept guessing until the end.Any book that takes place over a holiday is usually very good and this story was well told. I like the interaction with Jitty and her love for Sarah Booth is genuine.I will be recommending this book and the entire series to my book group.I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my fair and hon [...]

      Carolyn Haines's current instalment in her "guilty pleasures" Delta series featuring Sarah Booth Delaney gets an A-plus, though I'm with Jitty for sure on the idea that Sarah Booth needs to provide an heir or two. Get with it, girl. Enough with the sexual tension and angst!

      Sarah Booth is recovering from her broken engagement with Grif when a baby is left on her doorstep. Most ominous is the trail of blood leading from the bassinet across the porch. Lots of danger and romance as she finds the mother, takes care of baby and Tinkie who has fallen in love with said baby, and avoids her old nemesis who has sworn to kill her.

    25. Rebecca on said:

      Predictable pattern of the Delaney series; entertaining, a few surprise twists which is typical in this series. A mindless and entertaining chick book that is clean for a change, and a few items of suspense.
