"Antiques to Die For" - Love and Death Among Antiques
Dealers’ passions and collectors’ obsessions combine in this novel about the antiques business … and murder
When a centuries-old stone building is transformed into an antiques shop, a lively mix of dealers is brought together. They are witty, antiques-savvy and companionable, and the shop is an outstanding success. But beneath the surface of high-spirited banter and good times, a dark undercurrent is growing. Two years after the shop’s founding, someone is insidiously murdered, 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? To help the police detective in his investigation, the dealers agree to hold a marathon talk session, knowing the answer might destroy everything.
Set in the Appalachians of Central Pennsylvania, the story combines historical lore of the area, dealers’ passions, and the obsessions of collectors to tell a tale. A glimpse into a thriving antiques business, the appeal of the past, a mystery to solve … this is a book “to die for.”
