A Vintage Death

A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes
  published by Midnight Ink

My Review

This book seems to have everything I would enjoy. An October Festival full of hanging skeletons and ghosts and a book signing and reading by an author who writes paranormal stories. A quaint collector’s village with every type of collectible shop you can imagine…vintage music boxes, a vintage sewing shop, vintage cookware, a store called “Shake it Up”
filled with vintage salt and pepper shakers, a bookstore; even a vintage Bed & Breakfast. The shop names were all so clever it made me want to take a trip there myself. Except I might not want to come upon dead bodies as people seem to be doing in Keepsake Cove.  Callie, the owner of House of Melody music boxes (see what I mean? Makes you want to go look doesn’t it?), needs to help her friend Dorothy who owns Stitches Thru Time. The dead body was stabbed with a pair of vintage scissors, no less.

The reason I mentioned I wanted to visit Keepsake Cove has to do with the way Mary Ellen Hughes laid out the scene description. I even wanted to live in Callie’s cottage. Hughes did just as well with the leading or main characters. This is just a fun read you want to curl up and sit down for the day with. It didn’t take me much longer than that to read because I didn’t want to put it down. It’s sweet and entertaining.  

This is Book 2 in a series titled “A Keepsake Cove Mystery”. There is no question this book couldn’t stand alone as a good read. However, Mary Ellen Hughes has two or three series and there isn’t a one of them without good reviews. Better check them out everything out.

***This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are definitely my own.
