Iced Chiffon Will Blow You Away

Ice Chiffon

By Duffy Brown

Copyright October 2012

Publisher: Berkeley Prime Crime

 

There’s always something to gossip about in Savannah, Georgia, and Reagan Summerside always seems to be in the middle of it. She’s busy enough running her consignment shop, The Prissy Fox, with her vivacious Auntie KiKi, but now the gossip—and the sales—are about to pick up after a gruesome discovery…

 

Reagan’s messy divorce has left her with nothing but a run-down Victorian and a bunch of designer clothes. Strapped for cash, Reagan makes use of the two things she has left, turning the first floor of her home into a consignment shop and filling it with the remnants of her rich-wife wardrobe.

 

Thanks to his cunning lawyer Walker Boone, her ex got everything else, including the Lexus—not to mention a young blond cupcake. When Reagan finds the cupcake dead in the Lexus, she’s determined to beat Boone to finding the murderer. As it turns out, the gossip fiends flooding Reagan’s shop will give her a lot more than just their unwanted clothes—they have information more precious than a vintage Louis Vuitton…

 

My Comments

 

 

A really great first book in a new series. Duffy Brown created a truly diabolical puzzle of twists and turns for the reader to unravel. Reagen and her Aunt Kiki are a fantastic duo of crime solvers.

 

Duffy I can’t believe you snookered me in the first 50 pages.  We met the killer and the woman who could have been the killer.  The puzzle pattern of twists, turns and pure Southern wit had me going all the way to the last ten pages.

Poor Reagan’s been royally shafted by her ex and his sleazy shark of an attorney (one with a dubious background no less).  She finds herself and her spunky Aunt Kiki playing Nancy Drew to root out the real murderer and hopefully get  her life back on track.

 

FTC Full Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher (at the author’s request).  All they requested was a fair and impartial review.
