Lethal In Old Lace
Hi, Reagan Summerside here from the Consignment Shop Mysteries. In Lethal in Old Lace it’s spring in Savannah! I know, I know, spring is amazing everywhere it’s a full-out Van Gogh painting here in the South! But that doesn’t mean all is right with the world.
The Abbott sisters are accused of murder! How can this be? Those two adorable little old ladies who live right next door to me wouldn’t hurt a fly unless that fly named Willie Fishbine just happened to swindle them out of a ton of money. They got sucked them into the great Spring Chicken vitamin scam that was supposed to make everyone feel young again. A great idea but crushed dandelions, wheat germ and a dash of gummy worms just doesn’t do the trick.
All seemed circumstantial and the sisters were okay until BW...that’s Bruce Willis the canine version and my BFF...went bone hunting and dug up a body in the sisters’ garden and announced his accomplishment by carrying a blue purse covered in dirt right to the head Savannah detective.
Now I have to try and find the real killer, or the best neighborsever will go to jail for a really long time. So far my main suspect is Dexter Thomas. Not only does he own the House of Eternal Slumber mortuary but he wants to by the Sleep Pines retirement home. What better way of driving down the price than knocking off the residents. That’s one way to get the Pines for cheap.
And there’s Arnett Fisbine who had her eye on her daddy’s money for years and now on a non-stop spending spree. Of course it could also be those two gold-digger gals who married for money and want to get their antiquated husbands into Sleep Pines and need two openings to get them there.
All this and I’m planning a wedding. Did anything ever run smooth especially a wedding? What was your wedding like? Was it easy to play and did all go according to plan? I need to know what to expect and I sure hope it’s not another dead body. Bye for now...Hugs, Reagan
