Sep 21, Vilo rated it really liked it. This is a different side of Sharyn McCrumb, still rather satirical. Good mystery, people you want to hang out with more, and it validates my opinion that a mystery is the best cure for depression. Aug 28, Phil rated it it was ok.
I liked this one a little less but I think that's because I have always known fairly decent men in my life. I've been fairly sheltered I guess in that respect but I see no need to take "revenge" on men in general simply because they are men. May 16, Karen rated it liked it. Light, entertaining, silly. A lawyer and her client are blazing a trail of misplaced revenge from state to state and attorney A. Hill is hot on their tails.
The grand house comes complete with a shed, a chandelier, and the last owner. Suffering from depression after her husband goes missing at sea, Elizabeth checks herself into a mental hospital.

So there you have it, three A lawyer and her client are blazing a trail of misplaced revenge from state to state and attorney A. So there you have it, three plotlines. Do they tie together? The revenge plotline could have been amusing wannabe Romeos left to be found the next day minus their wallets and clothes if only more time had been taken to develop it. The most entertaining of the three lines surrounds the purchase of the mansion. To redecorate or not redecorate, that is the question. But that is really just a ploy to gather information.
This is the first of the Elizabeth MacPherson series for me. Sad thing is I started with 9 of the series. I hate doing that. I want to start with 1. Did that have something to do with why I felt this was so lackluster? If I had started at the beginning of the series I may have felt more vested.

One thing that really irked me was the way A. Hill was addressed throughout the book. Hill did this. Hill did that. Who refers to their friends by their full name?

Elizabeth MacPherson series - When we join MacPherson, she has just checked into the Cherry Hill Psychiatric Hospital to deal with depression brought on by the death of her husband.
Meanwhile, struggling Virginia lawyer Bill MacPherson, Elizabeth's brother, has purchased an old mansion for his law firm's upscale office. The mansion comes with a catch: the elderly man who originally built the house with apparently dubious funds is still living on the sun po 9 in the Elizabeth MacPherson series. The mansion comes with a catch: the elderly man who originally built the house with apparently dubious funds is still living on the sun porch. As Bill works out the real estate deal, his law partner, A. Powell, disappears to chase clues about the newly infamous PMS Outlaws, who have been stealing money from men and leaving them handcuffed in compromising positions.
While the novel's many eccentric characters never fail to entertain, the mystery of the old man is little more than a distraction, both for the reader and for Elizabeth. As for the PMS Outlaws, they are completely transparent in their motivations: they want to get money and cut men down to size. I stumbled across this book at BAM on clearance and I won't lie I bought it because of the title. And the fact that it was marked way down. I didn't pay enough attention to the fact that it was part of a series.
I think I read this book in about a night and I really liked it but I was young and didn't really pay attention to the author's name so it wasn't til years later that I ever read any of the earlier MacPherson novels and they just didn't stand up to the remembrance I had of this I stumbled across this book at BAM on clearance and I won't lie I think I read this book in about a night and I really liked it but I was young and didn't really pay attention to the author's name so it wasn't til years later that I ever read any of the earlier MacPherson novels and they just didn't stand up to the remembrance I had of this one.
I was actually going to re-read this novel before I finally donated it after years of having it, but sadly, the other books by McCrumb left me bored and to keep the favorable impressions that I had of "The PMS Outlaws" so I gave it away without re-reading it. Sep 06, Diane rated it really liked it.

They had depth. Although it might be a little unrealistic to think that Elizabeth was trying to solve a mystery from a mental institution. It was interesting to see her work through her problems after the death of her husband and granted a month was fast but all-in-all the issues being faced were pretty real.

This book was a definite change from what I had been reading of her books.
It seems to go into a more modern, faster flowing reading; that made a humorous journey through insanity, obsessiveness, lawyers, convicts and mystery, a journey worth taking. Dec 04, LyndaIn Oregon rated it liked it. It would be an okay companion on a cross-country flight or in the waiting room at the maternity ward.
Jul 26, William Howle rated it really liked it. The book was a fun read, several stories intertwined to make a novel. If you don't like a book that jumps from one story to another without warning, then this is not the book for you. There was an interesting definition of friendship, " Try asking someone to do something extremely inconvenient for an insane reason, and they do it, they're your friend " I have enjoyed previous books by her set in the hills of NC and TN.
Jul 04, Clyde rated it really liked it. Aug 25, Kathei marked it as to-read Shelves: own. Jul 22, Carol rated it really liked it. Several stories were going on at once. This is 9 in an interesting series. I am looking forward to reading more about these people. I have really loved each of the Elizabeth MacPherson books. I am hoping there will be more. I feel like we've been through a lot together! And she's definitely on the mend. So glad. Love all her goofy family members. But I want to know what's next for Elizabeth, recently acknowledged widow.
I have to be honest and say, " I was expecting so much more. Elizabeth doesnt get her husband, A. Hill was tied into the P. Outlaws in an explainable way, why did Purdue end up loke that?
Why did she pick Larkin? What happens next. What about Larry Garrison and Jack Dolan? Is there a squel? If not then this was a bit of a let down.
I need more explanation! Feb 18, Virginia rated it it was ok. In this installment of the Elizabeth MacPherson series, our heroine signs herself into a mental institution because she's suffering severe depression at the disappearance of her husband.
