This is book 20 in the Sarah Booth Delaney series by Carolyn Haines. I read the previous book earlier this year as well as the first book. Now I just need to catch up! I’m not sure when Sweetie Pie and Pluto entered the picture, but I love how they help with the mysteries.
In searching for a licensed to reuse picture of Indian mounds (where the book takes place) I thought it was cool to find that there really is a Winterville Mound in Mississippi (this picture isn’t it–it wasn’t licensed for reuse). It was another one that was mentioned in the book along with the fictional Mound Salla where an archaeological dig was taking place.
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was another book with such a good ending that I hated to see it end. After only reading the previous book and the first book, I feel like these characters are old friends. Sarah Booth and Tinkie were working for a professor who was part of an archaeological dig, but who also ended up being suspected of the murder of one of his colleagues. When another person ended up killed the same way as the first one, people were getting spooked by the press into thinking there was a serial killer out there. It didn’t help matters that Sarah and Tinkie’s journalist friend Cece went missing. There were a lot of secrets, but I had an idea early about who was behind it all, and for once, I was right. I enjoyed seeing how it all played out. I really need to hurry up and get caught up in this series before another new one comes out!
