    One thought on “What Are You Wearing to Die?”

    1. Picked this up from the library when I was there to borrow my book club choice that I really don't want to read. So obviously read this one first. As a rule, I'm a fan of this author but didn't like several of the scenarios she put in this book. REALLY didn't care for the "handcuff/door locking" antics that everyone seemed to think were OK since they were done by the loving husband. Really???

    2. Excellent new series discovery for me! I inadvertently started with #10, so now I'll need to go back and read 1 - 9 in order! Mac and Bo Riddley are an old married couple who have been sweethearts since grade school. Now they're comfortable in their little town of Hopemore, Georgia, with their old friends, kids, grandkids and their beagle, Lulu. It's a rather cozy mystery until a meth lab rears its ugly head. Yes, there's a drug problem that's touched even this picture perfect small town. MacLar [...]

    3. 11/18/2013: Borrowed from SFPLI am not sure why I added this book to my reading list, but since something sparked interest at some time and I could borrow it from the Library, I borrowed it and read it. It was entertaining. I thought the ending was much better than the beginning, but, because it is the middle of a series, it could be that I was not up on all of the characters. I was definitely more interested in the various characters than I was in the story, though the story was well done and n [...]

    4. It started out as a 2, or even a 1.5: not only does it assume you've read the previous books in the series (which I hadn't), but each character has several names, nick-names, etc. Very confusing.Eventually it sorts itself out. The story is never great, and parts don't make sense, but as a go-along-for-the-ride cozy mystery, it's ok. 2.5 stars.Edited to move down to 2 stars. When I think of 3 stars, I think of books I like and would recommend. This wasn't awful, but wouldn't be high on a list of [...]

    5. I truly love this series and the little words of wisdom that are imparted throughout this book, and series. One that really got my attention in this time of financial crisis was in the middle of the book MacLaren said "Have you ever wondered how much better off our society would be if decision makers were all required to take one class in basic accounting?" I believe that says it all.

    6. I object to the attitude the author takes toward the handcuffing and restraint of the main character.It is treated as a fun joke which she should just accept since her husband is the perpertrator.I don't find abuse funny, in any situation.

    7. Latest addition to the series. I normally really enjoy this series but this book left me dissatisfied, the parts about the handcuffs and then the store burning down. Just doesn't seem right. The end left me with the impression that it was the last one of the series. I hope not.

    8. One of her Thoroughly Southern mysteries featuring MacLaren Yarbrough, a thoroughly Southern lady. I do wish her husband would stop calling her Little Bit. Gets on my nerves Otherwise, it was a good story; light as the meringue on the chocolate pie at Mrytle's Restaurant.

    9. A re-read for me. Like the little taste of the south in Patricia Sprinkle's cozy mysteries as well as the clever little insights into daily living.

    10. This McLaren Yarbrough & Joe Riddley series features a local female judge who gets involved in mysteries. A fun read.

    11. Conversational narration from one of my favorite lady detectives marks every book of this series. Pleasant reading to while away a wintery afternoon.

    12. Dare I say it? From the way this book ends it sounds like the Maclaren series is over, Joe Riddley and Little Bit have lost their seed and feed business to a fire .

    13. This one is the last of the series and I loved it. Joe Ridd ley handcuffs Maclaren to her desk and it gets better as the story goes.
