As the new music box store owner and resident of Keepsake Cove, a quaint town full of collectible shops on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Callie Reed is eager to get more involved in her community. She volunteers to plan the Fall street decorations and welcome a visiting author who's come for a special book signing. But the celebratory mood is cut short when the local B&B owner is found dead, killed by a pair of vintage scissors.
Suspicion is cast on the victim's estranged wife, Dorothy, who owns Keepsake Cove's vintage sewing shop. Callie is sure Dorothy is innocent, and the visiting author agrees. Together, they begin their own investigation, only to discover that many people in Keepsake Cove have secrets. Secrets that are worth killing to keep quiet.

What I Thought:

This is the second installment in the Keepsake Cove Mystery Series.  In this one, Callie is settling into life as a resident of Keepsake cove after she inherits her murdered aunt's vintage music box store.  In this story, an author comes to town to do a book signing and stays at the local B & B.  When the B & B owner is found dead, stabbed with a pair of vintage scissors, his ex-wife, Dorothy, who owns the vintage sewing store is the prime suspect.  Callie and the author, Lyssa team up to prove Dorothy is not the killer.  The setting of this series if very charming and seems like a place that I would like to visit.  I enjoyed the plot of this book, it was well thought out and it made the story flow very well.  I love a good cozy that keeps me guessing to the very end, and this one sure did that.  I look forward to more in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
