    A Treasure Hunt of FUN!!!

    Lucy St. Elmo owns St. Elmo's Fine Antiques in Cape Cod. Treasure hunting is the mainstay of any antiques business and Lucy excels beyond many when it comes to finding just the perfect piece.

    This week the hunt takes Lucy to Brimfield, the largest outdoor antique show in all of New England. She has her strategy all worked out, her custom made cart and money at the ready. She is ready to make a killing at this show and bring back treasures she has been dreaming about.

    Lucy was not the only one with making a killing on their mind. Someone else did but they actually killed someone! Right there at Brimfield!! Worse Lucy knows the deceased. He was her long time friend, Monty Rondo. He was well known in the antique circuit as a supreme picker.

    All leads pointed at his partner but there is no way Silent Billy would have hurt Monty. So Lucy has no choice, in addition to hunting for treasures, she also has to hunt down a killer. With less than a week before Brimfield closes for the season and all the suspects pack up and move on to the next big show she has to move fast to close the sale on the real killer, knowing he is truly no treasure.


    First I have to tell you Brimfield is a real place. Those of you not in the New England area may not realize this.

    Knowing that makes the story even better because while Mary describes the place wonderfully with her words, seeing it makes the story itself so believable.

    I was drawn into this story not only by the mystery but the education about the treasure hunting in the antique world. The characters were real, eccentric and interesting. You wanted to follow them through the maze of Brimfield, weighing each as a suspect, crossing them off the list, then thinking some more and returning them to the possible suspect category. The story was like a mini treasure hunt for the reader making it very entertaining.

    This is a perfect summer read. I am looking forward to learning more about antiques and Lucy and her wonderful friends and family. I can't wait to return to Cape Cod with Lucy!
