DEMISE IN DENIM is set in Savannah. It’s springtime, Walker Boone is wanted for murder, and no one knows where he is...or do they?

Savannah is like another character in the Consignment Shop Mysteries and spring the very best time of all to visit. It starts around the first part of March when it’s still a little cool then builds to downright hot in May. The tulips and daffodils appear first, followed by the pink, white, purple and blue azaleas as big as a bus then come the white magnolias the size of a dinner plate. The whole city looks like a Van Gogh painting and smells better than the perfume counter at Macy’s.

But that’s not the only way you can tell its spring in Savannah. Here are a few other observations that are just a little unique:

-The first day of deer season is a holiday.

-You switch from heat to A/C in the same day.

-You hear, “Hey, y’all, watch this!” as daddy starts the mower and you pray those won’t be his last words.

-You know if it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites. Summer’s a comin’

-You help grandma with puttin’ in her tomato and okra garden.

-You start planning your vacation around the state festivals named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.

-You send out invites for the family reunions.

-You make room in the freezer for the other white meat called catfish.

-You know to keep an eye out for the 10,000 known types of spiders in the South, plus some no one has ever seen before.

-You know there are 5,000 types of snakes on Earth and 4,998 live real close by

-You take granddaddy’s shotgun out for a run.

-You think turn signals will give away your next move to the big sale to get a new sundress.

-You work in your garden till it’s too dark to see

This is how you can tell it’s spring in Savannah but what about where you live? How can you tell it’s spring in your neck of the woods? Happy Spring…

Hugs, Duffy Brown


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 . . .

Re: Duffy Brown | Springtime in Savannah

Spring in Minnesota is when the ice is off the lake. This
year it was early and on April 1.
I have beeen to Savannah and loved it.
I love your list.

You can tell it's Spring where I live when we can get snow
in the morning, and it melts by the afternoon. The tulips
are also starting to sprout, and the songbirds are starting
to migrate to our area. The Hummingbirds, my favorite,
should be here any day, and I'll know that Spring is really
here!! Your book sounds really good, and I can't wait to
read it!! I put it on my TBR list. Congratulations on your
latest book, which should do well!!
