Publisher's Summary

Reagan Summerside returns in nationally best-selling author Duffy Brown's fifth Consignment Shop mystery.

There are two social functions in Savannah guaranteed to get people talking: weddings and funerals. And just as consignment shop owner Reagan Summerside agrees to marry the hunky Walker Boone, her neighbors, sisters Annie Fritz and Elsie Abbot, step up their business as professional mourners. They are so successful that the Sleepy Pines Retirement Center has hired them as a part of their retirement package. But the celebration over good business is cut short when the residents at Pines suddenly begin dying at an alarming rate. And the sisters are the first suspects.

Reagan has her doubts, however, and begins to look into the strange phenomenon. But then something even stranger happens: a body winds up in the sisters' white Caddy. The evidence begins to pile up, and the suspicious case of Willie Fishbine, who swindled the sisters out of a fortune and coincidentally died prior to the Pines case, is reopened. Not wanting Willie to be buried until they can find the killer responsible for the murders, Reagan must catch the culprit in time to walk down the aisle.

Witty, fabulous, and full of charm, Lethal in Old Lace is perfect for fans of Ellery Adams and Jenn McKinlay.

Lethal in Old Lace

The characters are great and their interactions not only draw you along, but also have more laugh out loud moments than any other series I have enjoyed! I was thrilled that Audible had this book. I keep checking and hoping that the other books in this very entertaining series will be added to the Audible collection.

I'm laughing out loud at work :-D

The jokes are hilarious! I'm laughing out loud at my desk and my coworkers think I'm nuts! The humor is subtle at times and other times it comes at you full force. Duffy Brown is a brilliant author, weaving mystery, friendship, humor and romance into this novel. I just wish the prequels where available in audio book form too. Amy Tallmadge does a wonderful job brining this novel to life. I highly recommend it!

Lovely telling of Savannah

But a desperate, impossible, and terrible story. I found it as something to dull the mind and pass the time. I could not finish it.

The silver lining is that I have visited several of the restaurants mentioned so I gave stars for the culinary palate

A taste of Louisiana

I loved the characters. And the narrator voices captured the characters. It was a mystery with some comedy with a love story.
