Memorials are murder!
All antiques and no play make Abby a dull girl. So Abigail Timberlake Washburn takes a hiatus from her Charleston shop and accompanies best male friend, Rob, to the "wake" of his loco Aunt Jerry—who, as it happens, is nowhere near deceased, but will be soon according to her trusted psychic. Watching the crazy, caustic old gal gleefully disowning assembled relatives left and right is a hoot and a half . . . until Aunt Jerry turns up truly dead in the deep freeze with a priceless emerald ring missing from her lifeless finger. And wouldn't you know, Abby's the prime suspect!
Spunky Ms. Timberlake's not about to let herself be railroaded into prison. And neither are her loyal family and friends, including dear, ditzy mother Mozella, ex-sister-in-law C.J., and best female friend, Wynnell. But they may be more hindrance than help in Abby's desperate hunt for a lost stone and a stone-cold killer among an increasingly vicious family circle.
“A very funny series.”
