|Plot Summary of Murder on a Girl's Night Out - Southern Sisters 1|
Patricia Anne "Mouse" thinks her sister, Mary Alice "Sister" is crazy for buying the Skoot 'n Boot country western bar. Just because Sister and her current boyfriend like going line dancing there doesn't mean that it will be a sure-fire moneymaker, but, as always, Sister leaps before she looks. Resigned to going along with Sister's latest crazed venture, Patricia Anne lets herself be dragged out to see the big purchase. Patricia Anne is pleasantly surprised at the nice building and country decorations - and the kitchen is amazing! - and starts to think that Sister could really make a go of it. Unfortunately, when they return the next day, they find the previous owner's body stabbed, strangled and dangling in the bar's wishing well.
Sheriff Reuse is determined to get to the bottom of the murder and Patricia Anne is all for letting him take care of it, until his prime suspect becomes Henry, one of her best (and favorite) students in all her years of teaching at the local high school. Its true that Henry's life got a little derailed after he graduated and left for college, but Patricia Anne just knows that Henry couldn't have done it. So Patricia Anne, despite her husband Fred's warnings to the contrary, stays involved in Sister's country western bar scheme and starts looking for clues. Along the way, she finds that clues are often found in the places where you least expect to find them - and that even the apparently kindest person can be a murderer...
