Duffy Brown mystery filled with all the usual crazy characters. Reagan reminds me a little of a toned down Stephanie Plum with all the Murphy's Law incidents (If anything can go wrong it will). Thrown in to the mix are many southern charm characters and eccentrics. Duffy Brown's books are always a fun read.
From the cover:
With her strong opinions and knack for getting into trouble, Reagan is not an ideal volunteer for her mother's alderman campaign. Plus, she'd rather be running her consignment shop . . . but when her mother's opponent is found poisoned and her mother is pegged as a suspect, Reagan nominates herself as lead murder investigator.
