Antiques Disposal by Barbara Allan
Her mother has always a bit ditzy about making money from antiques, but this time takes the cake. The leftover boxes in the storage unit were bad enough, but now there is a body...
Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you). It's being published this month and is "A Trash 'n' Treasures Mystery", so watch for a copy at your local bookstore.
Brandy and her mother are always looking for treasure in someone's else junk, and it has paid off in some instances. It might even pay off here, but it doesn't help when you both know the victim in the storage unit. Then someone attempts to burglarize their home and injures her sister and her dog.
This is a cozy mystery with a plot that has several twists and turns. Brandy's mom and sister are a bit odd. (Whose relatives aren't?) With half the town involved, it makes Brandy's detecting complex, but she sticks with it.
This is a whimsical look at a small town and the characters within, and I enjoyed it. Why not see if you can beat Brandy to the murderer?
