Two sisters, long estranged, get back together with the deaths of their husbands. Dabney Palmer Rankin and Dr. Sophia Palmer Ransom set out to find who murdered the adoptive parents of long lost, newly found cousin Julio Estavez and may be trying to kill him. A tipsy Dabney Palmer Rankin sells the Dishing It Network on a recruiting mission to New Orleans on a on new show set at Sister’s plantation home, an old family home in Palmer, Cox County, Alabama. Partying on the Plantation attracts an international crowd to see the beautiful home and gardens and in the process makes an enemy of a serial killer.
Think Murder She Wrote but with two sisters who cannot cook and whom critics compare to Lucy and Ethel starring on a food show set on a plantation in Alabama. Spice it up with Rosemary and Thyme with an organic garden planted by the Cox County Master Gardeners around Waverly that inspires Victory Gardens around the country. Mix in romance with the Saks Fifth Avenue quality gentlemen who attend the Five O’clock Mint Julep Hour on the Waverly veranda. Season with Newhart appeal as Palmer, former ghost town, now attracts outdoorsman from around the world to the best deer hunting in the world. Add a dash of variety with a multicultural cast. Stir in the drug dealing serial killers upset with all that attention and a broad variety of heroes and villains and you have the Mint Julep Mysteries. Complicate everything with Dabney’s genetic memory, the result of the accident where the SpedEx truck killed her husband of 35 years and left Dabney in a coma from which she emerged in tune with past events that intrude into the present.
