  • Fun and Witty Wingate

    A new book by Marty Wingate? Yes, please. Hayley, the no nonsense middle-aged curator of a first edition mystery book collection/library, must hire a project manager to be in charge of a literary exhibit. Well, it didn't exactly end well with the manager's murder. A second manager was quickly hired as there was a huge time crunch for the important exhibit. Mysteries and secrets swirl as Hayley determines to discover who is responsible, having to wade through deception after deception. Not only does she know the person murdered but also wishes to proceed with the exhibit. It's personal. She enlists help and finds out more information than she had imagined. As a Golden Era mystery fan, including author Dorothy Sayers, I appreciate the references and connections in the story. There was a little something which surprised me, difficult to do in light cozies. Most was predictable but enjoyable nonetheless as in my mind the focus wasn't necessarily the whodunit. I liked that Hayley isn't a stereotypical "perfect" young flighty female sleuth. At the same time, I didn't really connect with her, either. This book is a fun and light read for those who enjoy light cozies. It would be perfect on a chilly evening with tea at hand and a blazing fire in the fireplace. My sincere thank you to Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley for the ARC of this delightful book in exchange for an honest review. Much appreciated.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it!

    murder, museum, mystery, rare-books, detective-fiction, situational-humor, sly-humor, England Hayley is the new curator of Lady Fowling's collection and member of the First Edition Society which involves (among a host of regular duties) arranging for an exhibition showcasing Lady Fowling's writing and collection. The regulars are certainly characters, but the infinitely capable but socially disastrous first event manager is murdered and her assistant is stuck in first gear since finding the body. Then there is the second event manager who is pretty loony in a different way. Hayley has been in contact with the DCI on the case before and keeps him up on any and every thing she happens across, all the while having some major wrangles in her personal life. I had not read the first book in series but never got lost in past issues. I loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Berkley Publishing/Penguin Random House via NetGalley. Thank you!
