Reagan Summerside returns in national bestselling author Duffy Brown’s fifth Consignment Shop mystery, now for the first time in hardcover.
There are two social functions in Savannah guaranteed to get people talking: weddings and funerals. And just as consignment shop owner Reagan Summerside agrees to marry the hunky Walker Boone, her neighbors, sisters Annie Fritz and Elsie Abbot, step up their business as professional mourners. They are so successful that the Sleepy Pines Retirement Center has hired them as a part of their retirement package. But the celebration over good business is cut short when the residents at Pines suddenly begin dying at an alarming rate. And the sisters are the first suspects.
Reagan has her doubts, however, and begins to look into the strange phenomenon. But then something even stranger happens: a body winds up in the sisters’ pink Caddy. The evidence begins to pile up and the suspicious case of Willie Fishbine, who swindled the sisters out of a fortune and coincidentally died prior to the Pines case, is reopened.
Not wanting Willie to be buried until they can find the killer responsible for the murders, Reagan must catch the culprit in time to walk down the aisle.

What I Thought:

It was so good to be able to visit with Reagan and the other eccentric characters of the Consignment Shop Mystery Series.  It has been a while since the last installment of this series, Demise in Denim, but this one picks up right where it left off.  Reagan has agreed to marry Walker Boone, but he gets upset with her when she starts investigating the suspicious deaths of the residents of a local retirement home.  Her next door neighbors are the prime suspects, so of course Reagan has to get involved. As always the writing in this one was superb and the plot was very good and believable.  It was a fast read that flowed well and kept me turning the pages. There were many twists and turns that kept me guessing till the very end. I love this series and am so glad it is back and look forward to more.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
