Sarah Booth Delaney is heartbroken: her fiance Graf Milieu has decided to move to Hollywood permanently, leaving their relationship in shambles. Sarah Booth has a perfect distraction, however, in the form of the Black and Orange Halloween ball her best friends are throwing in New Orleans. Sarah Booth plans to dance the night away to the swinging tunes of her old flame Scott Hampton's blues band. But just as the party gets going, Scott receives a mysterious message that threatens his life and the lives of his bandmates. Sarah Booth knows that a new case is just what she needs to take her mind off her failed relationship with Graf, and she's ready to help Scott investigate. And then the message turns from threat to reality when the bartender from Scott's club is gunned down in a drive-by. Enlisting Sheriff Coleman Peters and the rest of her friends from Zinnia, Mississippi, Sarah Booth is caught in a race against the clock as she tries to stop a killer from striking again.
With a twist around every corner, Sarah Booth's zany adventures will delight readers in Carolyn Haines's latest Southern cozy, "Bone to Be Wild.""

At the start of Haines’s engaging 15th cozy set in Zinnia, Miss. (after 2014’s Booty Bones), Sarah Booth Delaney badly needs a diversion after her fiancé, Graf Milieu, suddenly breaks off their engagement and returns home to L.A. Fortunately, an old flame, guitarist Scott Hampton, asks her to help track down the person who has threatened him and his band members. Someone doesn’t want Scott to open his new blues club. Is the threat serious? The sheriff isn’t sure until the club’s bartender is gunned down. This is only the beginning of Scott’s troubles, and Sarah is determined to find the killer before he or she strikes again. Why would anyone be so angry about a blues club? Is it a personal attack aimed at Scott? Meanwhile, Sarah Booth’s ghostly friend, Jitty, provides romantic advice, but it will take a lot of work from the living to solve this perplexing mystery. Agent: Marian Young, Young Agency. (May)
