It’s springtime in Savannah, Georgia, in the newest Consignment Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of Pearls and Poison. The azaleas and magnolias are in bloom—and Walker Boone is on the run. . .
When Reagan Summerside turned the first floor of her old Victorian home into a consignment shop, she never imagined she’d be harboring a fugitive in her attic. But after a dead man is found in a bathtub and local lawyer Walker Boone is accused of doing the dirty deed, she suddenly has a new houseguest.
Having the lawyer who took her to the cleaners in her divorce settlement—and who has been getting under her skin ever since—in close proximity is enough to drive Reagan to distraction. For the sake of her sanity—and Walker’s freedom—they need to put their heads together to find out who is trying to get the lawyer out of the picture . . .
Hi, it’s Bruce Willis the rescue pup from the Consignment Shop mysteries and I mean to tell you things are crazy as a waltzing pig here in Savannah.
Not that they’re all bad since in Demise in Denim I’m tooling around town with Reagan in Walker Boone’s classy chassis ’57 red Chevy convertible. But what I want to know is, where’s Walker?
You see, he’s wanted for murder and to get the cops off his trail he sort of switched vehicles with Reagan. Reagan took the convertible and Walker’s leather jacket and led the cops on a wild-goose chase out to Tybee Island.
Walker took Reagan’s pink scooter complete with pink helmet that smells like cotton candy on the inside and headed off in the other direction. Not that anyone would mistake Walker for Reagan on the scooter but they sure wouldn’t think it was Walker Boone either. He’s not exactly a pink scooter kind of guy.
But where is Walker now? Is he safe? Will the cops find him? Will he wind up in jail before Reagan can prove him innocent? Maybe he’s hiding out with the 17th Street gang. He was part of that team and even now that he’s a lawyer they are still tight.
Maybe Walker’s hiding in Auntie KiKi’s house? He showed Uncle Putter how to birdy the sixteenth hole out at the country club and for that Uncle Putter would be forever grateful.
Maybe Walker’s at Reagan’s mamma’s house? She put him through law school, or maybe Walker’s hiding out at one of his old girlfriends’ houses? Half the women in Savannah would love to have Walker Boone in their attic or better still under their bed.
Who knows where he is? Safe I hope. And we got to find the real killer before the police find Walker and throw him in jail for something he didn’t do.
So what do you think? Where is Walker Boone hiding out? I sure do miss having him around. Do you think he’s with the gang, or is he laying low at Auntie KiKi’s house, maybe he’s with Reagan’s mom, or is he on his own so as not to get any of his friends in trouble with the long arm of the law.
Let me know and I’ll give away two Demise in Denim lunch totes. Let’s hope Walker gets out of this one alive. Things are looking pretty bleak right now.
