    Highly recommended!

    It was great to read another installment in this series. It was an engrossing and entertaining read, full of twists and turns. I learnt something new and was fascinated by the setting. The characters are well written as usual, the plot kept me guessing and the setting was well described. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    The Perfect Cozy Mystery

    This is the "8th" book in this popular "Museum Mystery Series". I have read most of the series and always enjoy this historical series that is so well plotted and always a enjoyable read. Thank you to the publisher and to Net Galley for the opportunity. My opinions are my own,. in this next in series Nell is busy with her Society of Preservation of Pennsylvania when her intern presents to her a possible intriguing project. He was assigned to do the cataloging of a recent collection of books from the estate of Harriet Featherstone. He found a book from the 18th century that has a paper that appears to be a centuries old map from the 1700's. Nell and her intern decide to visit the area that is on the map after conferring with experts . The map appears to be from the 1700's in and near the Delaware river . Soon they find a ancient cemetery and learn that two bodies .from a murder were found recently by a developer. Now Nell and her staff are intrigued and on the case to discover the history and what occurred on the property. Thus begin a series of clues that lead them to many interesting facts about the property at the period in time. This is a enjoyable well crafted mystery with a wonderful historical aspect . I enjoy reading the history in each book in the series and find this series highly enjoyable. I highly recommend this series.

    Enjoyed

    The 8th installment in the Museum and the first I have read (I have a pile of them in my TBR pile). I was able to pick up on the main characters and plan to go back and read the series from the beginning. In this installment Dylan is a summer intern and he finds a piece of paper in the binding of a book he is cataloging. He takes it to Nell Pratt the president of the preservation society and the document is not legible. She asks her boyfriend James help if he can get in legible. She also calls in help from Marty a former board member when the letter is really a map. Turns out Marty knows the real estate developer Barney who is working in the area and they have hit a problem when bones are discovered. This was an interesting cold case of murder and I like the way Dell works with all those around her and especially liked James and Marty. Hope there is more in this series.

    found myself engrossed in the story

    This was the first time I read a book in the "A Museum Mystery" series, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though I hadn't read the previous books I had no trouble following along, it can totally be read as a stand alone. When a summer intern at the Preservation Society discovers an aged document hidden in the binding of an antique book, Society president Nell Pratt is intrigued by the possibilities: is it a valuable historic document or just a useless scrap of paper? When analysis reveals that it’s a hand-drawn map of one of Philadelphia’s oldest neighborhoods, Nell learns that the area is being excavated for a new real estate development and may hold long-buried secrets from the city’s historic heyday. Determined to get to the bottom of the map’s origin and what it might tell her about the mysterious plot of land, Nell will have to contend with a construction company owner who disappears, a former Society board member who’s harbored a dark secret her entire life, and a remarkable discovery that may have the dead turning over in their graves . . . I found myself engrossed in the story and reading it in one sitting. It was entertaining, full of twists and turns as well as a few surprises. I even learnt something about Philadelphia and american history. The Protagonist Nell is a strong, educated woman, and the side characters are realistic too. The characters are well rounded. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series. I requested and received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Beyond the Page Publishing and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my OWN.
