    Intriguing Cozy Antiques Mystery

    In this episode, there are more incredible missing antiques as well as too many deaths. The plot is captivating and well done. The story develops in a logical manner. The author is excellent at describing a scene so the reader can envision everything perfectly. This truly is a mind movie. This book stands alone well. I have read a couple of the prior stories, but each book is complete in itself. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    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.

    Good, but not my favorite by Ellery Adams

    This is the 8th book in the Antiques and Collectibles Mystery Series featuring Molly Applebee, a contributing reporter for an antique magazine who is often sidetracked into solving murder mysteries, a la cozy mystery style. In this book Molly is attending a black tie charity event when one of the guests falls to his death from an upper floor. The police are called, it’s deemed to be murder, and Molly is aske by the victim’s son to investigate. The writing is good, the characters are well developed and although it is well into the series the reader should have no problem understanding who the secondary characters are and how they fit into Molly’s world. Ellery Adams and Parker Riggs are co-writers, and they do a good job of integrating characters throughout the story and, with a few words or sentences, draw a complete description of them. Because the mystery is complete within this novel, it is not necessary to have read any of the earlier novels. There are some continuing characters, and if the reader likes to follow secondary stories, there might be some advantage to reading the series in order. The book moves at a good pace, however there were no real surprises for me. There is a twist at the end that was designed to be a major reveal, however, it was one I expected several chapters before the reveal. Throughout the book, Molly seems to take chances, with almost no consequences, that were a bit of a stretch to accept. Her willingness to negotiate with various people who might or might not be involved in the murder mystery or the secondary story of a missing Faberge egg. In turn, there is an implication that on more than one occasion, a person guilty of corrupt behavior and perhaps murder, is willing to negotiate with Molly and accept her word that she will keep their secets. This pushed me beyond where I was willing to go with my suspension of disbelief. My thanks to Beyond the Page Publishing and NetGalley for providing me with an advanced digital read in exchange for an unbiased review.

    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.
