Callie Reed makes a long overdue visit to her aunt Melodie, who lives in a fairy-tale cottage in quaint Keepsake Cove, home to a bevy of unique collectible shops on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Just as they're beginning to reconnect, Callie discovers her aunt's body on the floor of her music box shop. Grief-stricken, Callie finds she can't accept Melodie's death being called accidental. How could her strong and healthy aunt take such a fatal fall? And why was she there in the middle of the night?
As Callie searches for the truth, signs seem to come from her late aunt through a favorite music box, urging Callie on. Or are they warnings? If Callie isn't careful, she could meet a similar deadly fate amid Melodie's collection.
What I Thought:

The description of this book really caught my attention and I just knew I had to read it, and I was not disappointed.  I really enjoyed the setting of this book and the characters, who were all intriguing and well developed.  Callie, the protagonist is a great character and I felt that I really knew her.  She goes to visit her aunt, whom she hasn't seen in over 10 years and finds her aunt dead.  She doesn't accept that it is accidental, so she pulls out all the stops to find out what really happened.  I enjoyed the plot of this story and it was very well written.  I found myself turning pages and sometimes I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I look forward to more in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
