ANTIQUES FATE (A Trash ‘n’ Treasures Mystery) by Barbara Allan / Released 2016 by Kensington
Barbara Allen ( a husband and wife team) has come up with another romp for antiques dealer Brandy Borne and her theatrical mother, Vivian.
ANTIQUES FATE finds the duo in Old York, a neighboring town that relies heavily on its Olde Worlde British background for tourist trade. Vivian’s one-woman show of “the Scottish Play” has been booked for the annual, fete, and Brandy comes along to make sure all goes well. Alas, all does not go well… but it it the famous “Macbeth curse” or something more contemporary that is causing all the mayhem? Is the young and handsome clergyman all he claims to be? Is the overly aggressive real estate promoter going to extremes to get the land deal he wants? And who is selling off the valuable antiques in the town theater? It’s up to Brenda and Vivian (with some help from their Shih Tzu, Sushi) to uncover the dirty secrets of this picture-perfect town. Antiques tips from Brenda and a lasagna recipe are included.
