Overview

If there's anything Nan finds more depressing than approaching forty, it's having to shop for it. Yet, here she is, wandering the biggest flea market in town, hoping to surprise her twin sister, Bert, with a vintage toy from their youth. What she doesn't count on is having Franklin Haggerty, the less-than-friendly antiques dealer, threaten to sue her and her "daughter" for slander. Nan quickly realizes Haggerty must have had a run-in with Bert and her quick-tempered niece, Ellie." "That's right, Bert tells her. She had been shopping for a birthday present for Nan when Ellie spotted Haggerty selling phony antiques for major profit. As far as she's concerned, the cantankerous old fraud should just drop dead. And before you can say "Barbie collectible," Haggerty is on his way to the morgue with a tag on his toe - only this one's marked no sale. To make matters worse, Ellie and her boyfriend, Chris, are the prime murder suspects.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Twin authors McCafferty and Herald are up to form in another lively adventure featuring sisters Bert and Nan, namesakes of one pair of Bobbsey twins. When Bert's daughter Ellie confesses to shooting flea-market dealer Franklin Haggerty, her mother and aunt are convinced she's covering up for someone. But who? The girl seems to be enamored with Chris, another flea-market dealer, but she isn't so smitten that she would take such a foolish step, or would she? When the police, convinced they have their killer, make sure she stays in jail, Bert and Nan decide to do a little sleuthing on their own to prove Ellie's innocence. They discover that the deceased had no shortage of enemies; he apparently cheated just about everyone he could, misrepresenting his wares, under-bidding his fellow dealers and even blackmailing people unlucky enough to have left sensitive personal items in furniture he acquired. Puzzled by Chris's lack of scruples about leaving Ellie in jail, they learn that the young man feels robbed of his rightful inheritance. A chest sold to Haggerty may have contained a will entitling Chris to half his late foster parents' estate. Was Haggerty withholding the will from Chris--or did Chris's adoptive sister, who rejects his claim, shoot the man and steal the will? In their search for answers, Bert and Nan give readers plenty of thrills as well as an entertaining glimpse into the lives of identical twins. (Feb.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    Excellent amateur sleuth tale

    Identical twins Nan and Bert Tatum may look alike, but their tastes differ. Whereas Nan loathes shopping, Bert relishes store hopping. It is therefore a bit ironic that Nan is the one to visit the overly crowded Gigantic Flea Market intending to buy an antique for her sibling. Once there, she becomes embroiled in a shouting match with the dealer Franklin Haggerty because he refuses to accept that she is not Bert. Apparently Bert and her daughter Ellie had a recent confrontation with Franklin. <P>The next day, Haggerty is found dead near his van in the flea market¿s parking lot. Because of their public spats, the police interview the twins, but ultimately arrest Ellie and her boyfriend Chris. Ellie confesses, which frees Chris. Although the two sisters swore to never become involved in a murder mystery after their last successful fiasco, they dive headfirst into proving their loved one is innocent. <P>Barbara Taylor and Beverly Taylor Herald have written a delightfully funny amateur sleuth tale showcasing the misadventures of identical twins, just like the authors. Nan and Bert seem very real and the technique of using alternating chapters to express each twin¿s take on events adds to the feel of two caring individuals working closely together. The clever mystery is well drawn, but the droll protagonists turn this into a winning novel. <P>Harriet Klausner
