On the first day of their island adventure, they take a historical tour led by Angela Trotter, a young woman well-versed in local lore, including rumors of pirate treasure hidden somewhere on the island. In fact, Angela confides to Sarah Booth and Graf that her father, a sailor and treasure hunter, was murdered just when he thought he was closing in on the treasure. Angela's convinced that the wrong man was imprisoned for her father's murder, and she manages to persuade Sarah Booth to take the case. And Sarah Booth soon realizes that there's much more going on than meets the eye. With untold amounts of treasure offering plenty of motive for murder and a fiancé falling deeper into depression, Sarah Booth's peaceful island vacation is quickly spinning out of control.In Booty Bones, Carolyn Haines will once again delight readers with her trademark blend of clever plotting, witty prose, and Southern charm....

    I have never been a fan of Graf and with this book he proved that he isn't worth Sarah Booth. I get that with the last book and being shot made him feel vulnerable, however all he kept doing was push Sarah Booth away. Then when she takes him away so that they can be alone and re-connect he pulls away again. I could tell right away what as going on with him. He should have told Sarah Booth right away what was going on, not wait.The mystery with this one was pretty see through, but I did like how the island itself played into things. I also loved that we got to learn some of Jitty's history.With who showed up at the end, Sarah Booth's life is about to be shaken up again.

    WOW! I had figured out Graf's secret, but the pushing and pulling of their relationship was a bit tiring--let Sarah Booth...oh well, like the author explains in her newsletter, the characters go their own way--sigh-the plot ran "round + round"; I came to a point where I wasn't going to figure out anything, I just wanted "to watch it unfold"This was definitely a thriller and what a surprise to discover Jitty's past!

    Two of my favorite things---buried treasure and pirates. Jitty never disappoints with her "ghostly dress-up."

    Awesome and stress filled! This adventure may be the best Sarah Booth Delaney Mystery ever. When Sarah Booth takes her fiance to coastal island to recuperate from an injury she plans to devote her time to helping him in his recover. As always things don't turn out quite as she expects, but also like always, the twists are unpredictable.When a woman approaches her to ask Sarah to investigate her fathers murder, the private investigator refuses until she discovers that a man may be serving time unjustly. Her heritage and her personal code call to her. Her fiance is glad for her to have something to while he works to get his head past recent changes. Sarah realizes that he isn't sure if he will fully recuperate and that could change his future. That is a lot to think about.I won this book from the author at a Facebook party.

    I have been a huge fan of Sarah Booth for a few years now and I feel like she's a close friend. I laugh when she's being sarcastic, I sigh when she's being difficult and I cry when she takes her walks down memory lane. This book was different then the others and I enjoyed the change in pace. Jitty is one of my favorite characters and I loved learning a bit more about her. I cried for Sarah Booth multiple times and am still wiping away tears that fell during my reading. I highly recommend this book and this series to those that love a good cozy mystery.

    If you are looking for a mystery that features Southern hospitality, a bit of romance, a feisty ghost, and a cast of quirky but charming characters, then Carolyn Haines' "Sarah Booth Delaney" mystery series should be right up your alley! In this installment of the series, in addition to all of the above, there are pirates and treasure too!I love this series and am always thrilled when a new story flies from the pen (or keyboard)of Carolyn!

    Another enjoyable entry in this series. I enjoyed the island setting and the historical pirate subplot. I was glad that Jitty had more of a reason to keep popping up in this one. It sometimes feels like she is a throw in that the series doesn't quite need anymore. My only quibble is that Sarah Booth and Tinkie really do not solve the crime. They bumble into the solution when the perpetrator reveals himself or herself at the end

    Consumed the book. I have always loved Dauphin Island. We went every summer when I was a child. Many of the things I remember have been washed away by hurricanes, but the beauty is still there. It has been years since I last went. Booty Bones makes me want to take a trip there again. This book was a typical Sarah Booth book. I loved every minute of it. I was not upset with the Graf story line(I like Coleman). Waiting for the next in the series.

    Sarah Booth Delaney and her friends have again solved another mystery. This is a fast paced and enjoyable tale with the setting being on Dauphin Island off the Gulf Coast. In the story a man in prison is set free for a murder he did not commit and the murderer is found as well as the pirate treasure. Enjoy this charmingstory with its twists and turns and learn how Sarah Booth Delaney loses one fiancé and may find love again in another upcoming tale.

    Score! I want to be Sarah Booth when I grow up. This reflects on the previous book in the series but could stand alone. Sarah Booth handles solving a cold case murder, figuring out her fiancé's problems and an approaching hurricane. Didn't hurt that I was finishing it as Arthur was approaching.

    It was over too quickly, as these books usually are. This one was full of great intrigue and lots of new characters. It was great to figure out some of it but not everything. Those are my favorite type of reads. My favorite character in this one was Jitty and her ever changing personas, I loved trying to figure out who she was right along with Sarah Booth.

    Another great book by Carolyn Haines, but I found this book very depressing. I love the emotions this series makes me feel, there was not enough ups to balance the downs. Hope the next book is better.

    So much fun! I stumbled across this book by accident and am now in hot pursuit of the other 14 in the series. What a refreshing read! Granted, I figured out a few things early on- but not all. Great writing (but so many typos!), fast action, clever concepts.

    Another in the Sarah Booth Delaney series, this book kept me turning pages so fast that I read the whole thing mostly in one sitting. The ending, however, makes me so eager for the next one that I can't wait for it to be published! I hope the author is hurrying to get it to publication.

    Fun and light with a mystery added in. I love Jitty and the pets. I have visited Dauphin Island several times do the places in the book were familiar. I've read very book on the series and they always end with a twist.

    3.5 stars I never thought of Sarah Booth Delaney as a coward until now. The plot was interesting and so was the personal drama except I hated SB reaction to it.

    I liked this, but not quite as much as the other books in the series. Still, it's always fun to see what Sarah Booth and Tinkie are up to.

    Another good installment This story takes Sarah Booth and Twinkie out of Zinnia, MS to Dauphine Island, AL. Pirate treasure, politics and complicated relationships make for a compelling story. It was also great learning more about the "haunt" Jitty

    Another good read! I highly recommend the "Bones" series and its heroine, Sarah Booth Delaney. Funny, sad, dramatic and suspenseful. What's not to like?

    Fun, fun, fun! a lot of things Sarah Booth has to come to terms with, and learns about Jitty...not saying anything more -- you'll have to read it to find out!
