Key to Murder



Key to a Murder: An Antique Hunters Mystery
4th in Series
Cozy Cat Press (August 12, 2016)
Print Length: 176 pages


A mysterious woman appears on the doorstep of Great Aunt Sybil’s Attic in the middle of the night. Owner Anne Hillstrom lets her in, only to have the woman die in her arms. With no final words, and only an old lantern clutched to her chest, the dead woman provides Anne and her partner CC precious few clues to discover her murderer or why she spent her last moments in their antique store. The two Antique Hunters search for clues, finding themselves entangled in a centuries-old mystery leading them to a cemetery in Ireland where a ghost from the past has left them a cryptic message, and a killer has left them no choice but to discover his identity before he kills again. On their journey, the two best friends encounter antiques, romance and the key to a murder.
What I Thought:

This was an interesting story.  I got my attention and kept it.  I really enjoyed the friendship between Anne and CC, I felt they really had each others back.  This was an intriguing mystery because they did not know the woman who showed up unexpectedly at the door and dies.  Of course, Anne and CC have to figure out the mystery.  This was well written and highly entertaining.  This is the first I read in this series, but I hope to read more.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
