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.

Do not be afraid to read and laugh hysterically at this book even if you have not yet read the previous ones in the series. You will fall in love with the setting and characters and BW and then NEED to go back and read the previous books. Look forward to hours of escape and enjoyment.

A found and then lost again body, an icky walk through a dark alley, the feeling of being watched are just a few of the wonderful things you'll experience with Reagan Summerside as she tries to plan her wedding to the man of her dreams. (Finally)

This true southern woman deals with her Mama, her eccentric neighbors, business rivals and so much more as she tries to solve a mystery and bring bad guys to justice.

I loved it. Thank you to Great Escape tours and Netgalley for allowing me this opportunity to laugh.

One of my favorite quotes from this book: 

“I mean, how many dead little old ladies were on the loose in Savannah tonight? With my luck, it was probably best not to think too hard on that particular question.”
