Miranda James writes some fantastic characters in A Southern Ladies Mystery, the two main characters are a pair of sisters who are North of 30, closer to 80 and they prove that life, mystery and the pursuit of a purposeful life are not only possible but a very classy way to spend your twilight years. It is very easy to picture the Ducote Sisters, who are very different from each other but a perfect balance. Not having had children these sisters are far from spinsters but have a wonderful heart having taking in a 19 year old "ward" something from the beginning of the series that has blossomed beautifully by this fourth book. Beautiful animal companions in this series and a fun story in a "historical haunted house", this however is far from a paranormal book. Rich in history and character this is a series I am enjoying watching it grow.The New York Times bestselling author of the Cat in the Stacks Mysteries and Digging Up the Dirt returns with the latest Southern Ladies Mystery...It’s autumn down south, and An'gel and Dickce Ducote are in Natchez, Mississippi, at the request of Mary Turner Catlin, the granddaughter of an old friend. Mary and her husband, Henry Howard, live in Cliffwood, one of the beautiful antebellum homes for which Natchez is famous. Odd things have been happening in the house for years, and the French Room in particular has become the focal point for spooky sensations. The Ducotes suspect the ghostly goings-on are caused by the living, but when a relative of the Catlins is found dead in the room, An'gel and Dickce must sift through a haunted family history to catch a killer.
