    One thought on “Who Invited the Dead Man?”

    1. Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]

    2. "In the South 'peculiar' can mean anything from a tad eccentric to downright dangerous, and generally we tolerate peculiar folks unless they do bodily harm."Quick - Quaint - Quirky. Bonus perk: expletive-free. All good qualities for a cozy southern whodunit. Sadly, though, it lacked considerable integrity in plot and action; not to mention, compromised crime scenes and law enforcement procedures cast a huge shadow of disbelief. An okay beach read, perhaps. But a bit of a let down after enjoying [...]

    3. First I have read of this author, who apparently has a series of cosy mysteries set in a small Georgia town. Not bad. There is some very insightful depiction of how folks move into their twilight elder years. From the PublisherWhether handling customer calls at the Yarbrough's Seed, Feed, and Nursery or close calls while solving crimes, sixty-something Southerner MacLaren Yarbrough knows how to charm her way through anything.When a local man is found murdered at her husband's birthday gala, MacL [...]

    4. PROTAGONIST: Judge MacLaren YarbroughSETTING: GeorgiaSERIES: 3 of 10RATING: 3.0WHY: Not my normal fare at all, as I am a reader of hardboiled/noir. This was lighter without a lot of the silliness that I associate with an amateur sleuth kind of book. I really liked how the author portrayed the strain of living with a person with a head injury, didn't color it pretty at all. Overall, the book was predictable and average.

    5. A very good book,well written,keeps your interest from the beginning to the end,has lots of humor and at the same time a good story line. It brings the small town southern culture right into your living room.

    6. I didn't like this book too much. The author's style is the same. I mean with this and her other books it always goes along a format, someone gets murdered and the main character solves it. It is SO boring

    7. Just finished this easy-to-read mystery. I'll definitely pick up another by this author. I like books set in the south, and the extra problems with her recovering husband were unexpected, but made it seem real.

    8. I really enjoyed this series. My only complaint is that I can figure out whodunnit in almost all the books. But that's secondary to the enjoyment I get out of reading the books. This one I spotted as soon as the murderer appeared in the book, but there are always lots of other twists in there.

    9. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the characters, I liked the story (even though I could figure out who dun it), and l actually liked the flow of the protagonist's narrative.

    10. This is the 3rd book in the series and love how MacLaren solves the the murder at her husbands birthday gala.

    11. No as good as some of the others. I thought at times the author was demeaning to people in the South. The simplicity of it made it boring and hard to read.

    12. This is another series that has unusual twists and likeable characters. This is one of the early titles in the 'Thoroughly Southern Series'. Many in the series are available for download.

    13. "I heard her laugh aloud as I approached them - a sound as seldom heard in Hopemore as a discouraging word back home on the range."
