Thanks for all who have contributed to our discussion of Murder on a Girls’ Night Out . If you are stopping by to read the comments, please feel free to join us.
Today I have two questions for discussion.
• We all enjoyed the sisters and their interaction. If this were a movie, which character would get the award for best supporting actress/actor? What about the character appealed to you?
• Is this the first cozy mystery you have read this year? Or your first cozy ever? How does this mystery compare with others you may have read? Tell us about a cozy mystery you have read that you enjoyed more.
My favorite character was Fred, Patricia Anne’s husband. He understood the sisters’ relationship. Though he cautioned Patricia Anne to not get involved in Mary Alice’s mess, he knew that she would because that’s what sisters do. He was the one who identified Sara Hannah as Wanda Sue Hampton. And he enjoys a homemade meal.
Murder on a Girls’ Night Out is the first cozy I’ve read this year. To compare this cozy with other mysteries/cozies I have read, Anne George isn’t Agatha Christie nor Georgette Heyer. This cozy wasn’t trying to be a British mystery.
Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum Series has plenty of quirky characters and following them through the story can become confusing at times.
Several cozies by Livia Washburn with a literary theme also feature a Southern lady, but lack the humor of this book.
Knowing that Murder on a Girls’ Night Out is the first book by this author, I will read at least one more book by Ms. George. No doubt her writing matured as she continued with the series and reacted to reviews and reader feedback.
