~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
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.

Duffy Brown is the queen of humorous cozy mysteries. She will keep you not only entertained but laughing out loud until the very last page. A light-hearted who-done-it mystery.
~A Cozy Experience
Do not be afraid to read and laugh hysterically at this book even if you have not yet read the previous ones in the series. You will fall in love with the setting and characters and BW and then NEED to go back and read the previous books. Look forward to hours of escape and enjoyment.
I love this story! I can honestly say that I’ve never read anything like Lethal in Old Lace, and it just might be the funniest cozy mystery I’ve ever read.
~The Power of Words
Duffy is an excellent writer and I’ve loved everything she’s written. Her cozy mystery novels are completely engaging from the first page.
As always the writing in this one was superb and the plot was very good and believable. It was a fast read that flowed well and kept me turning the pages.

Annie Fritz and Elsie Abbot are a humorous look into my probably future. I don’t have any sister, but am quite capable of taking on the role of a couple of ladies who reminded me of the Baldwin sisters on The Waltons.
Let’s start with 5 stars. And ‘Best of the Year’!
I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. But Lethal in Old Lace
gets my vote as ‘Best of the Year’ (so far).
~My Reading Journeys
I LOVED this book. Not surprising at all is the fact that this book is jammed pack full of twist and turns and action that will keep you on your toes as you ride through the journey of Reagan searching out the truth.

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.
