About the Book:

Wanda Jean Milton discovers her husband, local exterminator Hilton Milton, dead on her new shag carpet with an Old Hickory carving knife sticking out of his chest. Beside herself over how she’ll remove the stain, and grief-stricken over Hilton’s demise, Wanda Jean finds herself the prime suspect in the case. But she is also a member of “the” local Study Club, a bastion of independent Texas feminism 1960s style. Club President Clara Wyler has no intention of allowing a member to be a murder suspect during her administration. Aided by her younger sister and County Clerk, Mae Ella Gormley; Sugar Watson, the proprietress of Sugar’s Style and Spray; and Wilma Schneider, Army MASH veteran and local RN, the Club women set out to clear Wanda Jean’s name — never guessing the local dirt they’ll uncover in the process.

Wow. This book. I just can’t even. It’s so hilariously over the top that it’s amazing. I love the Study Club girls and all of their personalities. They manage to uncover several crimes by gossip, southern manners and Aqua Net set in the 60’s with the accompanying values and stringent beliefs.
When I read the first chapter of this book, I was so worried how the rest of the book was going to turn out. I was very pleasantly surprised by how well the story made sense and was readable even with the over the top antics of the characters.
The rhyming names cracked me up. Wanda Jean, Maybelline and Dolene with Hilton Milton being notable favorites. The best part is that there are women like this in every single town in the South for sure if not all over the world. Southern women definitely are a breed unto themselves. Bless their hearts. LOL
