This is the 26th in the long-running Sarah Booth Delaney Mysteries by Carolyn Haines. I’ve loved every one that I’ve read, but admittedly, I’ve been known to skip around in this series, usually something more unheard of for me. But I’ve never felt lost whether it was the first book or the 21st book (probably saw it shiny and new at the library and just had to read it), or the 26th one here because Sarah Booth’s just a good and reliable character–and the author does a nice job of catching readers up completely without boring them over past details or giving away spoilers. Jitty (basically the house ghost) absolutely cracks me up and I love to see what person in history she’s gonna pop in as next. It’s out today, so enjoy Sarah’s Booth and Sweetie Pie’s latest adventure. Ok, Pluto too, can’t forget the kitty! 😉

My Goodreads review:
Tell-Tale Bones by Carolyn Haines
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the earlier books, I’d never have figured Sarah Booth and Tinkie would end up as such good friends let alone private investigator partners. And Tinkie’s a mom too, shut the front door! But she’s a really good mom and loves that baby like crazy. I liked how she always put her baby’s needs first, but she’s never a slacker in the investigation either.
This author did an amazing job of creating the most loathable character I’ve ever read about. I mean seriously, he needed a posse of good ol’ boys to just take care of him out in the north pasture. But I actually love what happened to this character eventually. Can’t really reveal a whole lot other than yup, baddies get their comeuppance in the Sarah Booth Delaney series. And sometimes that awesome hound Sweetie Pie gets to help!
What an epic showdown/takedown of the perp in this story. Don’t ya just love when a plan comes together?
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by St. Martin’s Paperbacks via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
