Antiques Roadkill: A Trash 'n' Treasures Mystery

Excerpt Buy for $9.99

A con artist meets his end on a country road—and a lot of swindled senior citizens are suspects: “Hilarious…a delightful debut.”—Joan Hess
Determined to make a new start in her quaint hometown on the banks of the Mississippi, Brandy Borne never dreams she'll become the prime suspect in a murder case. . .

Moving back in with her eccentric, larger-than-life mother, Brandy Borne finds small-town Serenity, Iowa, anything but serene. It seems an unscrupulous antiques dealer has swindled Vivian out of the family's heirlooms. But when he is found run over in a country lane, Brandy becomes Murder Suspect Number One--with her mother coming in a very close second. . .

The list of other suspects is impressive--the victim's business seems to have been based on bilking seniors out of their possessions. And when the Borne "girls" uncover a few very unsavory Serenity secrets, they become targets for a murderer whose favorite hobby seems to be collecting victims.
“A likable heroine.”—Booklist
“Enormously entertaining.”—Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
