 Format: Paperback

 Reviewed by: Marlene

 It certainly is busy at Second Chance, Sarah Grayson's shop for repurposed items. Recently hired by Edison Hall's sister Stella to clear his cluttered house after his death. Her and her group of employees will find more then stuffed rooms of boxes when they arrive on their first morning to work and find a body in the kitchen. With the job put on hold and Stella wanting to move forward with the estate sale, she hires Charlotte's Angels a small group of seniors with the knack for solving murder's. Due to working out of the back of Sarah's shop she soon gets sucked into the investigation and learns her proactive role can put her in a deadly situation.

 Once the victim is identified as wine expert Ronan Quinn a series of events is set in motion to uncover a scam involving selling worthless wine to seniors as an investment for future inheritance to their off spring. With the Angel's investigation leading them towards the scam artists and potential murderers they will band together and prove any of those around them that have doubts they can get the job done and as efficiently as anyone half their age.

 I liked the story very much, it brings to light something that is happening all over the place the taking advantage of those in need of direction. It was written very well although I sometimes had trouble figuring out who was who in the beginning of the book (I haven't read this series before) as I read along I got a handle on all the characters. I loved how the shop's employees and Charlotte's Angels and the characters were all connected beyond an employer/employee relationship, they are truly family whether blood is involved or not.

 As for the character's I always love a strong female lead with few a few doubts and the fact that she struggles in the kitchen helped, I know I do and have been teased a great deal for it as well. Loved Elvis, he is purrfect. The author writes wonderful characters, I especially liked Rose and Alfred for being strong willed, Avery for not being the typical teen, and for Mac, Liam and Nick for being what men should be.
