Resale Boutique Mysteries

A Quick Halloween Read

Who’s getting ready for Halloween? It’s tomorrow! Seriously, how did that happen? Today there’s a lot to do. Among my things to do today, I’m taking Connie for a Halloween event at the pet shop we go to and I may or may not have to make a quick run to the grocery store for some more candy. And I’m taking the Fifth on why I would have to do that. 🙂 I’m guessing your schedule is just as hectic as mine today. So, if you’re looking for a quick, Halloween mystery read, then check out WHAT NOT TO WEAR TO A GRAVE YARD. The novella, which can be read as a stand alone in the Resale Boutique Mystery series, can be read in under two hours.

After trading her Manhattan digs for her upstate hometown, fashionista Kelly Quinn has big plans for her grandmother’s consignment shop. But this All Hallow’s Eve someone is already dressed to kill . . .

A socialite’s missing dog has made front page news in Lucky Cove—complete with a hefty reward. But between renovating the consignment shop, planning her costume for a 1970s themed Halloween party, and scouting a location for a fashion shoot, Kelly doesn’t have time to search. Yet a visit to the local colonial-era cemetery—ideal for the moody atmosphere she’s after—soon turns up the precious pooch. Kelly’s looking forward to collecting the check—until she makes a gruesome discovery in an abandoned farmhouse: The dog’s owner, stabbed through the heart.
Kelly can’t help wondering why Constance Lane was traipsing around the farmhouse in stilettos. But as Kelly gets decked out in a vintage disco caftan, that isn’t the only fashion misstatement spooking her. Hidden in the dead woman’s past is a secret that could be the motive for the murder. And as the Halloween party gets started, even a menacing clown and a threatening bearded lady can’t keep Kelly from trick or treating for the truth—even if it means her last dance . . .

Happy Halloween!
