The PMS Outlaws
This review is by Jacqui
Sharyn McCrumb does a wonderful job in this book as she once again brings out Elizabeth MacPherson.
Bill MacPherson, Elizabeth's brother, and his law partner, A. P. Hill have decided to move their offices into an old mansion. Bill has been selected to find this home, as A. P. has her hands full with a new problem. Bill has found the perfect place at the perfect price. The only detail is that is comes with a gentleman in his 90's who once owned the house and refuses to leave!
A. P., on the other hand, has a small problem on her hands when an acquaintance from law school, P. J. Purdue, and P. J.'s client run off and start stealing from men. The PMS Outlaws, as the ladies call themselves, are running amuck in the south stealing from both the rich and poor men while A. P. is struck trying to figure out how to stop them and where they will go next.
As for Elizabeth, she willingly goes to Cherry Hill, a mental institution, for her depression. While she's there, she learns that being crazy means you don't have to be polite. She also learns that the gentleman in his 90's that lives in Bill's new mansion was a moonshiner who was supposed to have died years ago.
This book is hilarious as Bill trys desperately to figure out what to do with the old man who sleeps in the sunroom and steals sugar, Elizabeth trys to get over her depression, survive with people who are quite loony, and figure out who really does live in Bill's house, and A.P. trys to figure out how to stop the PMS Outlaws while still keeping a secret of her own.
The PMS Outlaws keeps you laughing and yet doesn't lose it's flavor for mystery. Even if you haven't read any other of Sharyn McCrumb's Elizabeth MacPherson novels, I suggest that you read this one.
