In the latest mystery from the author of Better Homes and Corpses and Hearse and Gardens, Hamptons interior designer and antiques picker Meg Barrett uncovers a veil of spooky goings-on...
The first Sag Harbor Antiquarian Book and Ephemera Fair is right around the corner, and interior designer Meg Barrett has her hands full decorating rooms at the Bibliophile Bed & Breakfast for wealthy rare book collector Franklin Hollingsworth. Rumor has it Hollingsworth is in possession of an unpublished manuscript written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. When the Fitzgerald manuscript's authenticator is found dead at the bottom of a cliff, Meg suspects a killer is on the loose.
Rare books start disappearing from the B & B and Meg sees a connection between the stolen books and the deceased authenticator. With the fair looming, she finds herself caught up in catching a killer and thief before another victim is booked for death.
INCLUDES RECIPES AND DECORATING TIPS
Here is what I thought
Another good one in the Hampton’s Home and Garden mystery series.
It starts out with a Hurricane a brewing and then Randall a man who appraises old things ends up missing. Later on he is found dead. Old books go missing and Randall was the one who authenticated them so they are not sure if that has anything to do with his death. Meg is curious about what happened so start sort of snooping around and then Franklin is killed and a group of people poisoned.
Meg has a few suspects but was having a hard time trying to put it all together. I kind of had an idea but had to wait for the reveal to see I was right. I really like Meg, she is an interior decorator and gets to decorate a place all in different classic author memorabilia which is really cool. She was a little confused on who she wanted to see relationship wise at first but I think (hope) it has resolved itself now. 🙂
Can’t wait for another one!
