Iced Chiffon (A Consignment Shop Mystery) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Iced Chiffon" the 1st book in her Consignment Shop series by Duffy Brown.

Product Description

There’s always something to gossip about in Savannah, Georgia, and Reagan Summerside always seems to be in the middle of it. She’s busy enough running her consignment shop, The Prissy Fox, with her vivacious Auntie KiKi, but now the gossip — and the sales — are about to pick up after a gruesome discovery …

Reagan’s messy divorce has left her with nothing but a run-down Victorian and a bunch of designer clothes. Strapped for cash, Reagan makes use of the two things she has left, turning the first floor of her home into a consignment shop and filling it with the remnants of her rich-wife wardrobe.

Thanks to his cunning lawyer Walker Boone, her ex got everything else, including the Lexus — not to mention a young blond cupcake. When Reagan finds the cupcake dead in the Lexus, she’s determined to beat Boone to finding the murderer. As it turns out, the gossip fiends flooding Reagan’s shop will give her a lot more than just their unwanted clothes — they have information more precious than a vintage Louis Vuitton.

My Review:
Reagan Summerside is in the middle of a messy divorce and the only thing she got out of it is her Victorian house Cherryhill.  She is in desperate need of money to pay off the bills so she has decided to convert her side of the Victorian house into a consignment shop called Prissy Fox.
When she borrows her ex's Lexus to deliver a water fountain she finds the dead body of his new girlfriend in the trunk.  Now Hollis (her ex) is the major suspect and has decided to sell Cherryhill to pay his attorney Walker Boone. Reagan decides to find out who the killer is to keep Walker's bill down to the bare minimum.  

This was a very funny cozy with some quirky and hilarious characters for ex:  Elsie and AnnieFritz, and Reagan's Aunt Kiki.
