What's a girl to do when she is down and out?
Reagon Summerside's ex-husband has left her. She's selling her furniture and clothes just to grab a few dollars to pay her bills. With the ex rubbing her nose in the "Cupcake" he's now got on his arm, making nice isn't an option..he hasn't signed off on the house that she loves. His high priced attorney has taken everything else. While Reagon is delivering a fountain she's sold from her own yard, her Auntie discovers the "Cupcake" in the trunk of her ex-husbands Lexus! Hollis (the ex) is arrested for the murder and threatening to sell her house to get himself out of jail. AND this is the start of the very fun and often crazy hunt for the killer. If she can find the killer before her ex-husband's pricey lawyer can, she won't have to sell her house.
This book was a lot of fun to read! Her Auntie KiKi was a real hoot as she gets to be the "Watson" to Reagon's Sherlock. Everyone should have someone like KiKi in their life. The person to bring food and a listening ear. Also a diversion while you need to get into OR out of sticky situations. The play between Reagon and the attorney, Boone, has the makings of a romance, or something, that hopefully will continue in future books.I couldn't help but laugh during this book. While the hunt goes on, Reagon's friends help her sell her things and open a high end Consignment shop in her house. So hopefully it is the basis for more stories by Duffy Brown. I thought this was a great mystery to read!
