Patricia Anne is shocked but not surprised, when her sister Mary Alice hits the bank president over the head with her umbrella. If they hadn't been born at home, Patricia Anne would swear they'd been mixed up somewhere. Flashy, flirtatious, and on the lookout for rich husband number four, Mary Alice is a foot taller and twice the body weight of her sinsible sister, "Mouse," who's satisfied to stick with her longtime mate, good old reliable Fred. And this time, "Sister's" crazy behavior has landed them both in the Birmingham jail.

It all starts when the sisters jump at the chance to get filthy rich by joining their good friend Mitzi Phizer in an investment club-kind of a Beardstown Ladies group-a bunch of amateurs pooling their money and making brilliant stock choices. Patricia Anne's conservative investment choice is a thriving chain of HMOs. Mary Alice is already loaded, but she's hot on the tail of the Viagra craze and sure the smart money is going on related products.

But before Mitzi's club idea gets off the ground, the sisters discover that Mitzi's supposedly faithful husband Arthur appears to be involved in a little hanky-panky with a woman of unknown origin. The next thing they know, Arthur is accused of killing her. It's a nasty image that doesn't fit kind, gentle Arthur any more than that of cheating husband-even if he did have a sizeable motive for murder...spelled MONEY.

Despite the distractions of consoling her distraught daughter-in-law who claims her marriage is over, and telling Mary Alice to bug off with her calls about amorous Cedric, an Englishman with a pencil-thin mustache and a last hame Sister can't remember, Patricia Anne is doing her darnedes to shore up her hapless neighbors, Mitzi and Arthur. But when there is a suspicious fire in the neighborhood and Arthur is shot in a place that won't allow hime to sit down at his own murder trial, Patricia Anne knows she has to stand up for the poor fellow-and check out ev

Patricia Anne would swear that either she or her sister Mary Alice were switched at birth, except they were both born at home.Flashy, flirtatious Mary Alice is one foot taller, twice the body weight of Patricia Anne, and three times as likely to do something completely off the wall. But now Mary Alice's impulsive behavior has land them both in the Birmingham jail!

It all begins with a call from their good friend Mitzi Phizer, who's starting an investment club — kind of a Beardstown Ladies group. Patricia Anne is willing to make a small, conservative investment in a thriving chain of HMOs; Mary Alice is hot to trot to put her money on Viagra. But before the club idea gets off the ground, the sisters spot Mitzi's supposedly faithful husband in a chummy little huddle with a redhead — and the next thing they know, Arthur is accused of murdering the mystery woman. Nothing about the whole sordid story fits the kind, gently Arthur, and Patricia Anne is doing her best to console her good friends. But when their house catches on fire, and Arthur is shot in a place that won't allow him to even sit down at his own murder trial, the sisters know they have to stand up for the poor fellow. And that means checking out everyone — from low-down cads to highbrow bank presidents — to find a no good gun-toting arsonist who believes big money is to kill for.
