DENIM is set in Savannah. Itâ€™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 itâ€™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 Macyâ€™s.
But thatâ€™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, â€śHey, yâ€™all, watch this!â€ť as daddy starts the mower and you pray
those wonâ€™t be his last words.
-You know if it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites. Summerâ€™s a cominâ€™
-You help grandma with puttinâ€™ 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
-You take granddaddyâ€™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 itâ€™s too dark to see
This is how you can tell itâ€™s spring in Savannah but what about where you live?
How can you tell itâ€™s spring in your neck of the woods? Happy Springâ€¦

About DEMISE IN DENIM
When Reagan Summerside turned the first floor of her old Victorian home into a
consignment shop, she never imagined sheâ€™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 settlementâ€”and who
has been getting under her skin ever sinceâ€”in close proximity is enough to drive
Reagan to distraction. For the sake of her sanityâ€”and Walkerâ€™s freedomâ€”they need
to put their heads together to find out who is trying to get the lawyer out of
the picture . . .
