Overview

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 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.

Don't miss Brandy Borne's tips on antiques!

"Cozy mystery fans will love this down-to-earth heroine with the wry sense of humor and a big heart." --Nancy Pickard

"With its small-town setting and quirky characters, Antiques Roadkill is fun from start to finish. Dive in and enjoy."--Laurien Berenson

I got really tired really quickly of having to read about what every single person was wearing throughout the whole story, but I got through it. Then I read the second book in the series and loved it! I've read all to date so far!

I really loved this book and look forward to the next books in the series. The characters were fun and a little crazy. I love dogs and was happy to read about a very cute one.

Light and funny! I have never read a book where the character writes a explanation about their or someone else actions. Different takes getting use to. Yes, I am going to buy more of Trash n Treasures.

I was shocked when I read the credentials of this team...this is really quite badly written, way too cutesy and desperately needs an editor. With little work this could be made better, but as of now, if I were the publisher I'd be embarrassed. Oh and lose the "tips" -- they're lame.

Quirky characters kept me involved until the end. Nice, light-hearted read.

This book is well worth the money. An easy read, is for those days when your brain doesn't want to do anymore. I found several of my small town residents written right there in the pages. Weve all been there and some of us have even done that too!

I really thought i wouldn't like this- had no reason but thought it would be what I call a "throw-away" and yet it was funny, sarcastic and I could sure picture some scenes in my own life read it in a few days cause I couldn't stop

A well written cozy! Her descriptions are so fluid as well as her use of dialogue. This is a joy to read!

Chik lit is not my genre but this was pretty funny on a day that i needed humor. I liked it enough to get the next book. The main character moves home after a divorce to live with her wonkey mother. She quickly becomes embroiled in a murder.

That pretty much sums it up. Didn't make it past the 4th chapter. Found the characters one dimensional, idiotic and frankly just generally annoying. Brandy was exceptionally shallow and insipid. I'm sorry I am unable to get my money back on this book. Even 4 chapters were a waste of time.
