A smart, sassy and thoroughly engaging new chapter in the irresistible adventures of Southern-born Laura Fleming.

Laura Fleming and her husband, Richard, are back in Byerly, North Carolina, and Laura thinks it's going to be a relaxed trip. After all, there are no funerals, no family reunions, and no weddings to attend. She should have known better. Before they've even unpacked, Aunt Maggie is telling them about last weekend's murder.

The Sunday afternoon Tight As A Tick Flea Market is one of Byerly's most popular attractions. But insiders also know it as a monthly hornet's nest of greed, envy, ruthless competition and stinging resentment. And as Laura's Aunt Maggie can attest, fellow dealer Carney Alexander could dicker more ruthlessly than any of them. Yet which one of his rivals could be driven so hopping mad as to carve him up with one of his own collectible knives? As Laura soon discovers, any number of Byerly's peddlers has a ace to grind when it comes to a blackmailing, two-timing extortionist like Carney.

Description from www.fantasticfiction.co.uk: "The Tight as a Tick Flea Market is one of Byerly's most popular attractions. But insiders know it as a hornet's nest of greed, envy, and ruthless competition. When dealer Carny Alexander is found carved up with one of his own collectible knives, Laura Fleming discovers that the flea market is swarming with suspects."
Readers who enjoy flea markets will enjoy this mystery. Although I figured out who the murderer was, it didn't detract from this humorous book with appealing characters. I want to read other books in this series and get to know the characters better.
