Reagan Summerside returns in national bestselling author Duffy Brown’s fifth Consignment Shop mystery, now for the first time in hardcover.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’ pink 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.

REVIEW*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
I loved it! This is an incredible addition to this series which just keeps better with each new installment. We pick up right at the end of the last book so no time is lost since the last one ended with an excellent question. Reagan and Boone are now engaged working towards combining their two crazy lives but of course that does not stop murder which happens yet again. Thanks to the hilarious Aunt Kiki Reagan gets involved in investigating yet again only this time she is worried about Boone not liking it. The interactions between these two had me alternating between giggling and going "awww" for how sweet he was being. This is the perfect blend of some amazing characters that just happen to get involved in a murder investigation, a little romance, and enough comedy to keep it light hearted that will have the reader turning the page until they hit the last one. I loved each and every minute of it so I give it 5/5 stars.
