Review: Iced Chiffon by Duffy Brown

Review: Iced Chiffon
by Duffy Brown
Berkley Publishing
Cozy Mystery

Who killed Janelle aka Cupcake? There are many people with good reasons that could have done the deed but the police feel they have their killer her fiance' and Reagan Summerfield's ex. But if she
wants to keep the roof over her head she must find out who the killer is before his lawyer Walker Boone will take her house as his fee.

Where do I start? This book is so much fun. I have never read a cozy mystery before and after reading this I realize I need to read more of them. ICED CHIFFON is funny and the cast of
characters will have you laughing. Reagan is hysterical as she struggles to keep her house by running a consignment shop in her house and try to find out who hated Cupcake enough to kill her.

ICED CHIFFON is the first in a three party series and as far as I am concerned it the second one cannot come out fast enough.

Book Description

October 2, 2012 A Consignment Shop Mystery
There’s always something to gossip about in Savannah, Georgia, and Reagan Summerside always seems to be in the middle of it. She’s busy enough running her consignment shop, The Prissy Fox, with her vivacious Auntie KiKi, but now the gossip—and the sales—are about to pick up after a gruesome discovery…
Reagan’s messy divorce has left her with nothing but a run-down Victorian and a bunch of designer clothes. Strapped for cash, Reagan makes use of the two things she has left, turning the first floor of her home into a consignment shop and filling it with the remnants of her rich-wife wardrobe.
Thanks to his cunning lawyer Walker Boone, her ex got everything else, including the Lexus—not to mention a young blond cupcake. When Reagan finds the cupcake dead in the Lexus, she’s determined to beat Boone to finding the murderer. As it turns out, the gossip fiends flooding Reagan’s shop will give her a lot more than just their unwanted clothes—they have information more precious than a vintage Louis Vuitton…


  1. Thanks, Barb, for the great review.

    So glad you enjoyed Iced Chiffon. I love Savannah...esp the food. Savannah is owe of those cities you can eat your way across.

    I've worked in a consignment shop for years, nothing more fun than finding a great bargain...or maybe a bargain and a dead body or two like in IC.

    Barb will give away two Iced Chiffon totes from your replies. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Hugs, Duffy

  2. Sorry, haven't been keeping up with the posts. I have this book on my TBR pile and look forward to reading it.
