Brandy Borne is pretty sure her "charmingly eccentric" (a.k.a. "off her meds") mother, Vivian, didn't kill that viperous mousy-haired busybody Connie Grimes. But there's the small matter of her guilty plea. . ..While Mother blithely adapts to life behind bars by organizing a jailhouse theater troupe, seven-months-pregnant Brandy and her intrepid shih tzu, Sushi, trundle into a morass of fake antiques and faux collectibles. In the dog days of summer, they'd better not bark up the wrong tree--or a scheming killer just may put the bite on them!

Not bad at all. Vivian is hilarious even though the relationship between mom and daughter is a bit odd. Cute little mystery. I enjoyed it.

If you are new to the series, start with the 1st one. This one has some spoilers that make the ones before less fun to read.
