Barbara Allan Synopsis: In Antiques Roadkill by Barbara Allan (book 1 of the series), Brandy Borne was looking to make a new start in a small Mississippi town, but never expected to become a suspect in a murder case. Moving back in with her eccentric, larger-than-life mother, Brandy Borne finds small-town Serenity anything but serene. It seems an unscrupulous antiques dealer has swindled Vivian out of the family’s heirlooms. But when he is found run over in a country lane, Brandy becomes the prime suspect – with her mother coming in a very close second… But they’re not the only ones. The victim’s business seems to have been based on bilking seniors out of their possessions. And when the Borne “girls” uncover a few very unsavory Serenity secrets, they become targets for a murderer whose favorite hobby seems to be collecting victims.
