Summary
"Nonstop humor as well as a tangled mystery." -RT Book Reviews With their reality TV series, Antiques Sleuths , Brandy Borne and her quaintly kooky mother, Vivian, have a real hit on their hands. But another "hit" enters the picture, after a rival bidder becomes a one-woman show at their televised auctions-and it's the estranged wife of Brandy's police-chief beau, Tony! Soon the fine art of murder colors the scene, fitting Brandy for an ornately elaborate frame.But when you're inside a frame, it's difficult to make out the picture. That's why Brandy's mom-her daughter now wearing basic jailhouse orange-must sort through a rogue's gallery of suspects including a too-friendly farmer's wife, a ratings-happy TV producer, a questionable husband-and-wife auctioneer team, and even the chief of police himself.Brandy and Vivian race to determine how an empty antique frame can hold a deadly portrait, a picture worth a thousand dangerous words. Aided only by Sushi, their loyal shih tzu, and police dog Rocky, the wacky mother-and-daughter sleuthing team must learn the killer's identity before they become the subjects of another masterpiece of murder.Don't miss Brandy Borne's tips on investing in antiques! PRAISE FOR BARBARA ALLAN'S TRASH 'N' TREASURES MYSTERIES!

Quirky secondary characters add to the appeal of this humorous cozy mystery." -Booklist ANTIQUES KNOCK-OFF "Scenes of Midwestern small-town life, informative tidbits about the antiques business, and clever dialog make this essential for those who like unusual amateur sleuths." -Library Journal ANTIQUES BIZARRE "Genuinely funny . . . The Trash 'n' Treasures books have to be the funniest mystery series going." -Somebody Dies ANTIQUES FLEE MARKET "Lively . . . this bubbly tongue-in-cheek cozy also includes flea market shopping tips and a recipe." -Publishers Weekly
