Love and Death among Antiques. Everything was going so well at popular and picturesque Cider Run Antiques until one rainy night in May when the unthinkable happened. Two years after its founding, someone is insidiously killed, the weapon an antique from the shop, and the body hidden in a blanket chest. Who could have committed murder and left, locking the door behind, if not one of the dealers? Set in the Appalachians of central Pennsylvania, the story combines historical lore of the area, collectors’ obsessions and the compelling passions of dealers to tell a tale. Offering an intriguing glimpse into a thriving antiques business imbued with the past, an atmosphere ripe for desire and a mystery to solve … this big entertaining novel is a book “to die for.”
“Antiques to Die For is an absolute delight…What draws the reader in is Hartman’s ability to weave together a finely drawn historical backdrop, a deep reverence for place, a group of richly realized characters, and what amounts to a primer on the world of antiques into a finely explicated tapestry that provides the … backdrop for… crime.” – Amazon review
“Antiques to Die For is a beautifully written and scheming whodunit that holds the reader in its spell from the first sentence … When I finished the book I absolutely had to go back to the beginning and reread it to savor the hints.” – Amazon review
“It’s a mystery, but so much more … it’s an insider’s look at the buying and selling of antiques … the author writes beautifully.”
