ANTIQUES TO DIE FOR: A Josie Prescott Antiques Mystery By Jane Cleland

I do love a good mystery and Jane Cleland has written one. This is a classic who-done-it, murder mystery that does not focus on the blood and gore. Personally, I like a mystery that centers on the solving of the crime, the "sleuth", the plot and the characters. This one has it all for me.

Josie Prescott is an antiques appraiser with a booming business, a promising romance, good friends, and dead bodies! Josie has a new friend, Rosalie, who is found dead after being stalked by a person calling themselves her "Secret Admirer." Rosalie leaves a 12 year old sister, Paige, devastated and alone. It turns out Rosalie was not exactly as she seemed, she has secrets and a treasure that might have gotten her killed! Josie becomes fearful for her own life when she begins to receive messages from a "Secret Admirer" herself! Is it Rosalie's killer? Has the killer turned his/her attention to Josie?

Plot twists, characters who aren't what they seem, and "murder most foul" all are found in this really fun read. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. I think you will too, even if you're not a mystery buff. What do you think?
