    An enjoyable cosy mystery

    A nice gentle cosy mystery from a formidable writer. I love the vintage kitchen idea - giving us pyrex and fire king - and in this book vintage nutmeg graters. It's a read that made me smile - but that doesn't mean that it didn't have its moments of tension. The people are flawed and real, the life they live busy and ordinary. It makes me want to visit Canada. I enjoyed it.

    Cozy mystery

    Jaymie is settling in happily to married life to Jakob and his daughter Jodie. Jaymie is asked by Jocie’s principal to do a presentation on the spice trade and use antique nutmeg graters to involve the children in the lesson. Jaymie contacts an elderly neighbor who is a descendant of a family prominent in the spice trade and has a large collection of the antique graters. When Jaymie finds the old lady after a bad fall down some stairs, and then odd events begin piling up, she starts asking questions. A true cozy mystery, with loving family and respect for heritage, this is a great addition to the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries.

    Delightful cozy mystery!

    No Grater Danger by Victoria Hamilton is the seventh story in A Vintage Kitchen Mystery series. Jaymie Leighton Muller is enjoying her new life married to Jakob and taking care of her stepdaughter, Jocie. Sybil Thorndike, Jocie’s school principal, asks Jaymie to assist in a new program that involves teaching through objects. They want to use objects from the heritage house for an upcoming spice trade lesson. Mrs. Stubbs suggests Jaymie talk with her cousin, Lois Perry who owns a large collection of nutmeg graters along with other historical objects. Lois Perry is a reclusive woman who lives in the Nutmeg Palace and owns the waterfront property in town. Fergus Baird, a developer, has been badgering Lois to sell off the property. When Jaymie arrives for a meeting with Lois, she finds her at the bottom of the back stairs. Someone set it up for Lois to fall and this was not the first time an attempt has been made on her life. Jaymie sets out to find the person behind these dastardly deeds because the next attempt on Lois’ life could be successful. No Grater Danger contains good writing, a steady pace and smooth transitions. There is a great cast of established characters and I like the addition of Lois Perry (feisty and intelligent woman). I have liked watching Jaymie grow over the course of the series, and I am glad that she has found the right partner for her in Jakob Muller. Queensville, Michigan is a lovely town with quaint shops and I appreciate how they want to preserve their history. There are beautiful descriptions of vintage items in the book including the Savoy by Buccellati Sterling Silver set, various nutmeg graters, and Pyrex. The mystery is well-crafted with a twist that will surprise you. There are red herrings and multiple suspects. Jaymie actively questions suspects and seeks clues to aid her investigation. Armchair sleuths will be able to discern the guilty parties’ identity early in the story. However, it did not hinder my enjoyment of the book. I wanted to keep reading to discover the why and spend more time in Queensville. There are many appealing cozy moments in the story with Jaymie and her new family (hubby and stepdaughter), time with friends, cooking and eating, shopping, and wonderful descriptions of vintage items. I am giving No Grater Danger 4 out of 5 stars. I could have done with less repetition of facts and speculation. I will be eagerly awaiting the next installment in A Vintage Kitchen Mystery series.
