Killer in Crinolines by Duffy Brown
Killer in Crinolines is another cozy mystery winner from Duffy Brown. Reagan Summerside is a delightful southern character with a quirky, Cher quoting, Aunt Kiki and a friend, Chantilly who seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Throw in a drop dead gorgeous attorney, a few southern belles and an alligator and you'll find yourself glued to each page.
When Reagan Summerside is asked to make an emergency bowtie delivery to Magnolia Plantation for a wedding, she finds the groom facedown in five tiers of icing and fondant, a cake knife in his back and her good friend and UPS driver accused of the murder.
Can Reagan find the real killer without winding up in the local swamp as alligator meat?
Will Walker Boone badass attorney and once upon a time gang member help her out or will he feed her to the alligator himself.
This is the second book of the Consignment Shop Mystery series and definitely going on my list of favorite books for 2013.
