It’s springtime in Savannah, Georgia, in the newest Consignment Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of Pearls and Poison. The azaleas and magnolias are in bloom—and Walker Boone is on the run. . .
When Reagan Summerside turned the first floor of her old Victorian home into a consignment shop, she never imagined she’d be harboring a fugitive in her attic. But after a dead man is found in a bathtub and local lawyer Walker Boone is accused of doing the dirty deed, she suddenly has a new houseguest.
Having the lawyer who took her to the cleaners in her divorce settlement—and who has been getting under her skin ever since—in close proximity is enough to drive Reagan to distraction. For the sake of her sanity—and Walker’s freedom—they need to put their heads together to find out who is trying to get the lawyer out of the picture . . .

My take on this book:
Demise in Denim is one of those stories that easily captures the imagination, after all the cover really fits the story. I could  easily imagine the scenes unfolding as the wacky cast of characters are out to figure out who-dun-it! Ms. Brown kept my interest with a fast paced plot that never lagged, with a few storylines going on there was always something happening! A story that grabbed me from the get go and kept me reading, and guessing right up until the end, and I must say the ending was something I truly didn't see coming! I really enjoyed the characters and love whenever an animal is included in a story and with this one we have Regan's dog BW!  
Fans of fast paced cozy mysteries with a southern flare, that blend humor, fun characters and more than a few twists will certainly enjoy Demise in Denim! To be honest this is my first time reading anything written by Duffy Brown and let me say even though this is the fifth book in the Consignment Shop Mystery series it can easily be read as a stand alone story, I had no problems diving right in, but with that said, I enjoyed the characters and storyline so much that I certainly plan on going back to read the entire series!
