Tight as a Tick
Kelner is exceptionally skilled at capturing offbeat details and making something routine and mundane very compelling. I'll never look at flea markets the same way again. Laura also had a nice character-building moment with her cousin Augustus, which I found very touching and well-done. Plus, Laura and Richard's dialogue was top-notch as always, even with Richard on a self-imposed hiatus from Shakespeare-quoting! This is a wonderful book, and easy to get into if you've never read any other books in the series.
When one of the least liked dealers at the Tight as a Tick flea market is murdered, another dealer asks her visiting niece, Laura Fleming to investigate the murder. Most of the story takes place at the flea market and to be honest I had never thought of how much work could go into setting up booths there. Laura manages to investigate the suspects while helping her Aunt Maggie run her booth. She finds out that the victim liked to make trouble and ruin the business of fellow dealers.
No one is mourning his lose. Her Shakespere-quoting husband is helping in the investigation but Richard is having problems of his own.

He has bet a group of friends that he can stop quoting the Bard for three weeks. I enjoy reading the Laura Fleming Mysteries since they are set in an area of the country that I'm familar with.
Even though Byerly and Rocky Shoals are fictional, it isn't hard to recognize bits and pieces of local towns in those two towns. I'm seeing the familar in a different way then normal. Ir a Amazon.
