Summary

The award-winning, laugh-out-loud adventures of antiques dealers Brandy Borne and her drama-queen mom Vivian have made Trash 'n' Treasures "one of the funniest cozy series going" (Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine). In the latest installment, after flames consume a historic mansion full of priceless treasures, along with its occupant, the question arises: who charred the corpse? Brandy and Vivian are on the case in their 14th Trash 'n' Treasures Mystery! 

That local theater diva of a certain age, Vivian Borne - a.k.a. Brandy's mother - is sheriff of Serenity County now, but still hot on the trail of precious antiques. On a tour of the historic Wentworth Mansion, the two dedicated dealers are aglow at the treasure trove of priceless objects...never dreaming everything will turn to ashes, hours later. 

A charred corpse in the ruins is identified as the mansion's caretaker, a one-time flame of Vivian's. But Tony Cassato - Brandy's beau and Serenity's Chief of Police - throws cold water on Sheriff Vivian's suspicions of murder. Then Brandy spots a certain familiar item for sale on the internet, and Mother suspects the fire was just a smoke screen. 

When their doggie detective, Sushi the Shih Tzu, sniffs out a second body in the woods, Mother and Brandy turn up the heat on a homicidal torcher. Because any killer who takes on the Borne girls is playing with fire. 

Don’t miss Brandy Borne’s tips on buying and selling antiques on the internet!

Good cozy crime

This is a fun series - witty and a cut above the rest - I just wish they would use the magnificent Amy McFaddon to read all of them as she is by far the best at voicing both mother and daughter. This reader sounded rather perfunctory.
