Summary

Award-winning author Carolyn Haines visits sleuth Sarah Booth Delaney and the Mississippi Delta in Buried Bones, the second novel in this popular series. Local legend Lawrence Ambrose knows the secrets of everyone in town, and he isn’t above spilling the beans in a tell-all biography. But when his biographer turns up dead and the manuscript goes missing, it’s up to Sarah to dig up the truth.

Awful narration killed the story

Would you try another book written by Carolyn Haines or narrated by Kate Forbes?

I dont think so. I couldnt get a sense of the story at all due to the weird narration, Often she would stop in the middle of a sentence and then keep going so you spent the next couple of sentences making sense of that first sentence. There were rare moments when she would read fluently and then lose it again. Ive tried three times and cant get past chapter three

Has Buried Bones put you off other books in this genre?

Yes

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Forbes?

Tanya Eby

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Buried Bones?

No idea

Any additional comments?

Awful complete waste of a credit

Buried Bones is ok but not as good as the first story. The characters and plot were developed but the story didn't appeal to me. I hope the third book is better.

Disappointed

As much I enjoyed the first book in this series, I couldn't wait to listen to the next. What a disappointment! Hope the next is better.

yet another interesting continuation

many hours of enjoyment listing to this one - and of course like any great story it demands that you go on to #3 - love Sweetie the dog - could do without the ghost - but all in all it's a great listen

keeps getting better

sarah is a today woman, without the forensics, without a plerhora of romance, ut believably real, she still manages to solve some very good conundrums as a fledgling pi...glad there are more...
