New York Times bestselling author Miranda James returns to Athena, Mississippi, with an all-new mystery featuring Miss An’gel and Miss Dickce Ducote, two snoopy sisters who are always ready to lend a helping hand. But when a stressed socialite brings murder right to their doorstep, even they have trouble maintaining their Southern hospitality… 

With the Mississippi sun beating down, An’gel and Dickce are taking a break to cool off and pet sit their friend Charlie Harris’s cat, Diesel, when their former sorority sister, Rosabelle Sultan, shows up at their door unexpectedly, with her ne’er-do-well adult children not far behind. 

Rosabelle’s selfish offspring are desperate to discover what’s in her will, and it soon becomes clear that one of them would kill to get their hands on the inheritance. 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…

My Thoughts:

This book is from the same writer who writes the cat in the stacks and our beloved Diesel and Charlie Harris in this one we follow the Ducote sisters Dickce and An'gel who are kittysitting Diesel while his family is on vacation.  While resting in their living room they are interrupted by the sister's sorority sister Rosabelle, who is adament someone is trying to kill her when her daughter in law ends up dead at the hands of a mysterious killer related to Rosabelle the Decote sisters end up having to have a huge amount of guests related to Rosabelle.  Was it one of the relatives who killed Marla?  Or was it Rosabelle herself having to always be the center of attention?

This book was great I'd loved reading about Dickce and An'gel in Cat in the stacks book and the treat became even better when I read this book.  These two sisters were definitely the stars the of the show with all the crazy people who kept appearing in this book I was beginning to wonder if the sisters would ever narrow down the list of suspects which they did nicely.  Can't wait to learn more about them!

Next in the series is:
