In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder.
Molly Appleby is on cloud nine. The talented reporter and senior staff writer for Collector’s Weekly just got engaged to the man she loves. When she takes time off to plan her wedding and shop for a vintage gown, the spunky writer with a growing reputation for finding corpses and solving murders vows to her family and fiancé to avoid trouble at all costs. Until the wedding photographer she visits turns up dead in his home, the victim of foul play.
So when she’s not busy shopping for the perfect dress or sampling endless varieties of cake, Molly once again finds herself attempting to unravel a mystery, and the endless string of women spurned by the playboy photographer leaves no shortage of suspects. When another corpse turns up and Molly discovers that the woman who sold her a gorgeous vintage gown might be the murderer—and that the gown itself may be linked to a decades-old crime—Molly must summon all her sleuthing skills to find the killer before her preparations for the big day become plans for her funeral.
What I thought of this book.
In book four Molly is engaged and planning a wedding. She goes to Vermont to plan a wedding up there because her and Matt might be moving there if that is where he gets assigned. She is looking for a vintage gown but ends up involved in trying to solve a murder when a photographer is found dead.
He was the ex-husband of a lady that she meets and realizes that he was not a nice man and there are a number of suspects. The detective on the case lets her help him with the case but mainly because he has a bit of a crush on her. Her mom comes to Vermont to help her with her wedding plans and ends up helping with the investigation as well.
Molly is a fun character and she is a very good sleuth, probably because she is a reporter, even though it’s for a collectibles magazine, she still has a nose for investigation. Her mother is a lot of fun as well. Although I am happy that Molly is marrying the man she loves I really don’t know enough about Matt to form an opinion about him as he really isn’t in the books very much.
