Description
"Well-drawn characters...fun to read." -- Booklist Brandy Borne's exceedingly eccentric mother, Vivian, has been invited to perform her one-woman interpretation of "the Scottish play" (sometimes called Macbeth)--with different hats for different characters--at the neighboring town of Old York's annual f#65533;te. The weekend festival celebrates the quaint village's English flavor. Brandy, sensing a possible theatrical disaster, and savvy shih tzu Sushi, sensing possible doggy treats, tag along with the scene-stealing septuagenarian. As soon as they arrive in the cozy hamlet, tragedy strikes: the theater owner drops dead onstage while giving Vivian the grand tour. That wasn't in the script and before they know it, Brandy and Vivian are entangled in a progressively perilous murder plot. Besides the cream teas and Chippendale chairs, it seems there are skeletons lurking among Old York's charming pubs and enticing antiques stalls ... When a second victim turns up mysteriously murdered, the dynamic duo knows they've got to step into the spotlight. But the remorseless killer seems to be well rehearsed for the Borne girls...and won't leave even the smallest detail of their demise to f#65533;te! Don't miss Brandy Borne's tips on antiques fairs! Praise For Barbara Allan's Trash 'N' Treasures Mysteries! Antiques Swap "Brandy and Vivian are engaging, well-drawn characters, and their first-person narration is fun to read. Quirky secondary characters add to the appeal of this humorous cozy mystery." -- Booklist Antiques Chop "The characters shine with brassy humor . . . series fans will applaud." -- Publishers Weekly Antiques Disposal "A ditzy mother-daughter duo, a denouement out of Nero Wolfe, antiquing tips . . . an amusing mystery." -- Kirkus Reviews Antiques Knock-Off "Scenes of Midwestern small-town life, informative tidbits about the antiques business, and clever dialog make this essential for those who like unusual amateur sleuths." -- Library Journal Antiques Bizarre "If you delight in the absurd and enjoy manic humor, you'll treasure the Trash 'n' Treasures mysteries." -- Mystery Scene Antiques Flee Market "One of the funniest cozy series going." -- Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
