Overview
"This series is just pure fun." --"Somebody Dies"
It happened at Serenity's swap meet, right after Brandy Borne and her ever-more-eccentric mother Vivian finished shooting the pilot for their very own TV show, Antiques Sleuths. Brandy just, well, lost her balance and fell . . . into the helpful arms of an old flame, local tycoon Wesley Sinclair III. But did Brandy's innocent slip lead to the murder of Wesley's wife, Vanessa?
Sure, Vanessa was furious that she caught Brandy in Wesley's embrace. And she did storm off threatening dire consequences for her humbled husband. So when Vanessa turns up very dead, the local tongue-wag is that Wesley may have permanently dethroned the queen of his castle. But Brandy--along with her notoriously nosy mother and their sleuthing shih tzu Sushi--is determined to dig for the whole truth.
Each new clue points in a different direction. What about this suspicious Club of Eight, a super-secret high-society bridge group that supposedly has very liberal rules about "partners"? When a key witness joins the dead list, Brandy and Vivian know they've got to crack this case before the remorseless killer puts an end to their antiquing days--forever

Brandy Borne, a 32-year-old divorcée, and her 73ish, bipolar mother, Vivian, continue to make mischief and solve murders in Allan’s antic ninth Trash ’n’ Treasures mystery set in Serenity, Iowa (after 2014’s Antiques Con). Vivian cultivates a circle of retired women chosen for their differing areas of expertise and their willingness to gossip, as well as a group of old men selected for similar reasons. The crime du jour is the murder of Vanessa Sinclair, wife of Brandy’s friend Wes. The Sinclairs are part of a tight group of wealthy young couples, not all of whose activities are aboveboard. Brandy is torn between wanting to help the bereaved Wes, keeping a leash on her mother (whose loss of a license doesn’t keep her off the road), and coping with her difficult boyfriend, Tony Cassato, a cop on the case. Plenty of misunderstandings and confusion contribute to the book’s madcap, farcical air. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary Agency. (May)
