Item description for A Mystery Bred In Buckhead by Patricia Sprinkle...
A MYSTERY BRED IN BUCKHEAD - A Southern Mystery Southern Hospitality and Cold-Blooded Murder In genteel Atlanta society there are worse crimes than murder-such as missing Rippen Delacourt's annual Christmas party, a fifty-year tradition. As amateur sleuth Sheila Travis joins her family and cherished friends at Rip's gala, she never suspects that before the end of the evening, a long-missing, priceless manuscript will turn up in the hands of a disgruntled servant . . . and release enough closeted skeletons to fill Rip's guest list. Someone doesn't want the unpublished novel to come to light-and is willing to make sure it doesn't. As Sheila stubbornly pursues the manuscript, she makes a deadly discovery: the someone who has already killed to keep the papers out of her hands is probably a relative or a lifelong friend . . . who now is drawing a bead on Sheila. Sixth in the series. Reprint edition.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Mystery Bred In Buckhead?
A Mystery bogged down Feb 25, 2008
I usually love anything written by Patricia Sprinkle, especially her new geneology mystery series, but this one was bogged down in so much Southerness that I could easily have given up reading it before page 10. The fact it cost me more than a regular paperback kept me going. I lived near Atlanta for 10 years and they were a great 10 years meeting wonderful Southerners, but this novel never kept my interest. By the time the mystery got going and became interesting it was almost page 100. Borrow it from a library, but save yourself the money and get a mystery with a bit more punch to it early on that keeps the momentum going the whole way through.
A Mystery Bred in Buckhead Mar 13, 2007
I like both series written by Patricia Sprinkle. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone. I think this book could be read by anyone over the age of 16 and enjoyed. Patricia Sprinkle brings all elements to her mysteries. You feel as if you are in the middle of this story and would like to know these people. Everyone has an "Aunt Mary" in their lives.
