Comments Bless Her Dead Little Heart

  • James

    4 stars to Miranda James's Bless Her Dead Little Heart, the first in a new "Southern Ladies" mystery series. I chose this book because I enjoy the author's (Dean James) other series, "Cat in the Stacks," which also takes place in Athena, Mississippi and includes Diesel, the Maine Coon cat. It was a little shaky at first, but then the characters took off and I ultimately enjoyed this book. On to the reviewStoryCharlie Harris of the "Cat in the Stack" series drops his Maine Coon cat off with his f [...]

    Talk about your dysfunctional family! And to think that An'gel and Dickse were just minding their own business one day, babysitting their friend Charlie Harris's cat, Diesel. That crazy day when their friend Rosabelle from college showed up on their doorstep insisting her whole family was out to kill her. Imagine their surprise when said whole family showed up! This was a really a fun and sort of old school type mystery, really refreshing and different to have all the suspects in one house. It k [...]


    Dollycas’s ThoughtsLOVE, LOVE, LOVE!These Ducote sisters are as sweet as the tea they serve. Miss An’gel and Miss Dickce were introduced to us in Out of Circulation the 4th Cat in the Stacks Mystery. I loved them then and am thrilled that they have been spun off into their own series. My favorite cat Diesel even makes a guest appearance in this first installment along with Chief Deputy Kanesha Berry.Let’s just say these two sisters have the patience of saints as their former society sister [...]

    Bless Her Dead Little Heart is the first book in the A Southern Ladies Mystery series.If the first book is any sign, then this series will be a very entertaining one. Readers first had a chance to read about the Ducote sisters in Out of Circulation, fourth book in the Cat In The Stacks Mystery series by James.Just as An'gel and Dickce, who are cat sitting Diesel, Charlie Harris' cat. As they are beginning to settle in with their houseguest, Rosabelle Sultan, a former sorority sister who they hav [...]

    3.5 stars but I'll round up. Cute and charming little mystery, and of course the addition of Diesel in the story doesn't hurt a bit!

  • Nicole

    Nice whodunit by Miranda James, author of the Cat in the Stacks series, featuring the Ducote sisters in their spinoff series debut. Very enjoyable! :-)

  • Jane

    2.75 stars - rated mild r-lite (see reasons below)I knew when I started this cozy mystery that it was not "Christian" fiction. I, however, am relating my opinion of the story from the perspective of a Christian reader. And while I enjoyed much of the story, there were a few bits that gave me pause.I liked the two main characters (a pair of senior sisters) and the oh-so-Deep South flavor. Loved their very southern names, so fun to say in my head as I was reading. The entire story takes place at t [...]


    The Ducote Sisters, Miss An'gel and Miss Dickce exemplify sweet southern charm and true manners. Their southern upbringing and manners are really put to the test in this first of the A Southern Ladies Mystery. We first come to know the the Ducote sisters in Miranda James's Out of Circulation, the fourth book in the Cat in the stacks Mysteries. The sisters are cat sitting Diesel, Charlie Harris's Maine Coon Cat also from that seriesThe sisters former sorority sister, Rosabelle shows up at their d [...]

    Sisters An’gel and Dickce Ducote are surprised when their college friend Rosabelle shows up unannounced on their doorstep and states that one of her family members is trying to kill her. But not too long after her family shows up to find Rosabelle, someone dies, and the evidence points to murder. Which of their house full of guests is a killer?This is a spin off series from the author’s popular Cat in the Stacks Mysteries, but the fact that I’ve only read the first one of those didn’t ha [...]

    Bred with Southern hospitality, good manners, sippin' sweet tea, and tossin' back shots of whiskey for their nerves; the DuCote sisters, Dickce and An'gel, are pet sitting Diesel, the huge Maine Coone cat belonging to Charlie Harris, from the Cat in the Stacks series. And, if that's not already entertainment enough, when an old sorority sister comes calling; seeking refuge from her family whom she says is out to kill her; the sisters are in for the likes of drama and death as they've never imagi [...]

    I wanted to like this book. I was looking forward to a new murder mystery. But by the time the plot ground so excruciatingly slowly to the end, I could have cared less who was the killer and who was the killee. The only action of the book happened in the last two pages. The remainder was dithering over a family's wills and who inherited what and why, and people being generally nasty to each other.

  • Dawn Michelle

    Oh. My. Gosh.This book was a lesson in tedium. And a lesson in NOT throwing your books. W H A T the heck was the author thinking when she wrote this?? WHAT a horrible read.The only reason it has two stars is because I really like the main characters [even with their weird names]. I truly enjoyed them when they were introduced in one of the Cats in the Stacks books and was pretty excited to see that they got their own series, because truly, they are hilarious. Add a visit from everyone's favorite [...]

    This book is a spin off of the Cat in the Stacks series by Miranda James.The main characters are to me two loveable 80 yr. sisters An'gel and Dickce Ducote who are exactly like I want to be if I reach that age.The characters are so well written and have such depth that I can actually hear their voices in my mind as I read their words. The humor brought to the story is really what must go through everyone's mind when guests come to visit and stay and stay and stay. After all guest and fish do sti [...]

  • Sue Em

    This book had me at the title, I knew I had to read it. And I certainly enjoyed it. Two sisters have their Southern hospitality put to the test when an ex-sorority sister drops in unannounced claiming someone is trying to kill her. A malicious stew of her family follow in her footsteps and the sisters soon have a houseful of unpleasant guests. Fatalities ensue. But the set up for more books has me intrigued and ready to meet these characters again.

They settle in for a visit with the well-behaved cat when Rosabelle, a woman who had been their sorority sister sixty  years earlier, suddenly appears on their doorstep. She frantically tells the Ducote sisters that she has run away from her family b [...]

  • Yvonne

    A brand new series by Miranda James! I love James’ “A Cat in the Stacks Mysteries”, so there was no way I wasn’t going to read the newest series, “A Southern Ladies Mystery”. This series gets off to a brilliant start. It helps that we had a special guest appearance by Diesel, the star of the “Cat in the Stacks” series. It’s always fun catching up with Diesel.This series has a cast of characters in its own right that are fun, portrayed realistically and, of course, are mixed up [...]

    I've been flying my way through Miranda James' books via my public library. I speedily read the first four cat in the stacks books and am awaiting book five, which I had to put on hold. I noticed the first book in the southern sisters series and decided to give that a try. We were introduced to the mai characters, An'gel and Dickce in book four of the other series.Eh I'm not a huge fan of senior sleuths and in this case, there are two of them. In addition, the author switched back and forth betw [...]

    In this first novel, which is a delightful spin-off from the series, "A Cat in the Stacks Mysteries," we are re-introduced to wealthy society sisters, An'gel and Dickce Ducote as they entertain their house-guest, Diesel, a Maine Coon Cat. All three are enjoying a peaceful rest in their Athena, Mississippi home, when suddenly the peace is broken.The doorbell rings, and upon opening it, the sisters find their rather unlikable sorority sister, Rosabelle pushing her way inside. Not only is Rosabelle [...]

    This is a first in a series that promises to be as good as the Cat in the Stacks series. An'gel and Dickce Ducote are cat sitting for Charlie Harris. These two elderly spinsters live in a historic home called Riverhill. When one of their sorority sisters. Rosabelle Sultan shows up at their door asking for sanctuary, claiming that someone in her family is trying to kill her, their Southern manners leave them no choice but to invite her to stay. Unfortunately, her whole family shows up shortly the [...]

    I only have one question. WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK IN THIS SERIES COMING OUT??? While I adore the Cats in the Stacks series by Miranda and so happy to see Diesel be a part of this new one(lovely segue) I am totally besotted with the SistersAn'gel and Dickce. I sensed at once that this would be a bit of a wild ride with them, and then of course their uninvited guests who multiplied by the pages added to the adventure.The plot and character development was well paced and the gradual introduction of t [...]

    Book #99 Read in 2015Bless Her Dead Little Heart by Miranda JamesThis is the first in a cozy mystery series. An'gel and Dickie are a pair of southern sisters who became amateur sleuths when one of their house guests end up being murdered. The pair try to weed through a slew of possible suspects. The mystery was well written and kept me guessing. The sisters were a great pair. I loved that Diesel, the Maine Coon cat from the other cozy mystery series by James, was in this book made for a nice bri [...]

  • Gigi Ann

    What a cute little cozy mystery book. I always go to James for a fun read when I'm in a fun cozy frame of mind.

  • Aaron

    This is the first book in a spin-off series that is dovetailing off the Cat in the Stacks Mysteries. The main characters are two matronly and elderly sisters named An'gel and Dickce Ducote. They have popped up a few times in James' other series, which stars librarian/detective Charlie Harris. An'gel and Dickce also live in Athena, Mississippi, but they are probably the richest people in town. They are always willing to help out, which probably explains how they are willing to take their long-tim [...]

  • Anne-Kathrine

    Bit of a quirky book but def enjoyed it. Seeing how Miss An'gel and Miss Dickce are able to discover the clues with the help of Diesel the Maine Coon was so much fun. Description of all the characters made it so easy to picture each of them :)

  • Linda Fifield

    Great first book of what looks to be a fun new series!
