Book Review: Trash ‘n’ Treasures Mysteries Series by Barbara Allan

Barbara Allan is the joint pseudonym of acclaimed short story writer BaScreenshot 2017-04-09 19.26.32rbara Collins (Too Many Tomcats) and New York Times bestselling mystery novelist Max Allan Collins (ROAD TO PERDITION). They have joined forces to write Trash ‘n’ Treasures to write about Brandy Borne and Her mother Vivian.  I have to wonder which author defined Vivian.  The story is very interesting and very enjoyable.



Antiques Swap

It happened at Serenity’s swap meet, right after Brandy Borne and her ever-more-eccentric mother Vivian finished shooting the pilot for their very own TV show, Antiques Sleuths.
Vanessa turns up at each and every meet when Brandy Boone and her mother go to purchase material for their reality show. Sure, Vanessa was furious that she caught Brandy in Wesley’s embScreenshot 2017-04-09 19.23.00.pngrace. However, now with a new murder in their world, now Brandy–along with her notoriously nosy mother and their sleuthing shih tzu Sushi–are determined to dig for the whole truth.

Book Review and 4.3 stars

I liked the book, but I don’t like Vivian, she is just a little to out there for me.  However, Vivian does have a way of lightning up the story a bit.  I strongly encourage you to read the book, it will definitely keep you entertained.

Antiques Frame

Brandy Borne and her interesting mother, Vivian have a hit reality TV series, Antiques Sleuths.   But another “hit” enters the picture, after a rival bidder becomes a one-woman show at their televised auctions—and it’s the estranged wife of Brandy’s police-chief beau, Tony! When I say she is always around she is always around.

Brandy’s mom—her daughter, Brandy,  is  now wearing basic jailhouse orange— and Vivian is working overtime to help resolve this situation. Brandy and Vivian race to solve the problem.  They are aided only by Sushi, their loyal shih tzu, and police dog Rocky, the wacky mother-and-daughter sleuthing team must learn the killer’s identity.

Book Review and 4. 4 stars

There is one thing about this series that I haven’t been able to understand: that is do Brandy Borne and her mother like each other.  My thought is that they do like one another, but I also Screenshot 2017-04-09 19.23.25.pngthink tha they need each other to keep their world from crashing down.  I think most people will enjoy this book.  They characters remind me of people I meet everyday.
