  • A mystery with history

    Molly Appleby and her husband Matt are attending a fundraiser and a body literally drops right in front of them. Molly seems to have a knack for finding bodies and for antiques. When the son of the dead man asks Molly to help solve his father’s murder, being the kind soul that she is, Molly agrees since he lost his mother not that long ago as well. As Molly begins to look into the man’s murder, the son shares a family secret with her: the family has a rare and historic Faberge egg that was gifted to them by Russian Empress Alexandra. It seems the egg is missing and Molly believes it may hold the key to the man’s murder. But as with any family, there’s more than meets the eye and Molly ends up putting herself at risk to make good on her promise of solving the murder. A fun series with strong and developed character and a fun whodunit every time. Ellery Adams is one of my go to authors and never disappoints.

  • Antiques and a cozy mystery

    Molly writes articles for Collector’s Weekly magazine, but she also has a talent for investigating murders. Now living in Vermont with her husband and her small child, Molly and her husband attend a charity function at the Gordon estate. Always on the lookout for possible articles for her writing, Molly is not interested when asked to write about the owner of Rarus Books, who is rude, drunk, and insulting. When a body falls onto the patio in front of her, Molly (under the guise of writing) digs into the mystery. The mystery deepens with past history, a secret Faberge egg, and swirling loyalties. This is the eighth book in the series, but the first I have read, and it works very well as a stand-alone story. I have enjoyed other books by this author, and am glad to discover this series. I now have more books to add to my TBR list!

  • A Fun Cozy Mystery to Add to Your List

    This was definitely a fun read. I am a big fan of Ellery Adams and now Parker Riggs as well. The book has fun and well developed characters, an entertaining plot and enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested. I would definitely add this to your cozy mystery list.

  • An Intriguing Amateur Sleuth Cozy

    Mother, wife and reporter Molly Appleby has a knack for eliciting information that her friend, Det. Lombardi always is interested in. While attending a gala with her husband, a man is murdered and his son requests her help in solving the murder quickly....after all his mother died only a few weeks before...oddly drowning as she was an excellent swimmer. She makes the rounds questioning connected individuals and comes up with information Det. Lombardi didn't get, eventually connecting the dots to more related criminal activity and the murderer, but not before endangering herself Det. Lombardi arrives in the nick of time and she gets a heck of a story to tell. It contains no sex or gratuitous violence, and the characters are well defined as are the settings. Fast paced and intriguing, I recommend to all cozy readers. I requested and received a NetGalley Arc to peruse and offer my opinion freely.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 8th book in this series!

    A Fatal Faberge by Ellery Adams and Parker Riggs is the eighth An Antiques & Collectibles Mystery. Molly Appleby is happily married to Dr. Matt Harrison and they have an adorable 14 month old son. She enjoys her job of writing articles for Collector’s Weekly and sleuthing when the occasion calls for it. A Fatal Faberge can be read on its own if you have not read the other books in the series (or skipped a book or two). I find the characters to be developed and I enjoyed the depictions of Burlington, Vermont. A Fatal Faberge contains good writing. While the two authors writing blends together, I can tell the difference between this book and one written by only Ellery Adams (such as The Book of Candlelight). I found the pacing to lag in the middle of the book. Curtis Cobb is murdered at a fundraising gala hosted by Natasha Gordon at Misty Vale. The victim’s son, Maxim Gordon Cobb asks Molly to use her skills to solve his father’s murder and Molly agrees (you know she would anyway). There are a couple of suspects and good clues to help readers solve the crime. There is a twist near the end that I did not find surprising because of something mentioned earlier in the book. I like how the Faberge egg was included in the mystery. I find them fascinating and beautiful. Faberge eggs are unique items with delightful hidden surprises. I did find some areas of the mystery a little disbelieving. However, as my mother likes to remind me, it is a work of fiction. I wish there had more action as well as less speculation and repetition of case details (some of the same details are repeated several times). A Fatal Faberge is a lighthearted cozy mystery with a smart, friendly sleuth who is knowledgeable in antiques. A Fatal Faberge has a fabulous Faberge egg, a vulgar victim, a deadly deception, a pesky PI, and a searching sleuth.
