Overview

Molly Appleby is a young writer for Collector's Weekly, and when the attractive reporter isn't covering auctions and antique shows all over the South, she's trying to get her new relationship with a coworker off the ground. When her latest assignment takes her to North Carolina pottery country to cover an exclusive kiln opening, she's certain that the show promises surprising offerings and rare finds. What she doesn't expect to find is a dead body. George-Bradley Staunton is known throughout the antiques world as a very wealthy and very ruthless collector, and when he drops dead just after the opening, there are all too few mourners and a seemingly endless list of suspects. When the local police are stumped, Molly steps in to put her journalist's nose to work sniffing out the culprit. But no sooner does she start collecting clues than another dead body falls into her lap. As Molly digs beneath the genteel surface of antiques and collectibles, she finds a world filled with backstabbing and competition, and what started as a story about rare collections might leave Molly with nothing more than a collection of corpses.

Great Cozy Mystery! This is a great cozy mystery! This is the first book in the Antiques & Collectibles Mysteries by Ellery Adams. I am a big fan of this author and enjoyed this book just as much as her other books. Molly is a writer for the Collector’s Weekly, she is looking forward to her new assignment at a North Carolina exclusive kiln opening in pottery country. She was expecting some beautiful pottery but definitely not expecting to find a dead body. So she puts her sleuthing skills to work trying to find the killer. This book kept me reading all night; I did not want to put it down until I found out who the killer was. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This is not a long book--226 pages--but it is fairly enjoyable. It is set in North Carolina in the area near where our daughter and her family live. Molly Appleby is an amateur sleuth who is learning about pottery--what pieces are most valuable, etc. It is a short enough book, and interesting enough that a book group would probably enjoy it.

Interesting characters and plotlines.

This is the first book in the Collectable Mystery Series and I think it really set the stage for future books. The characters have been introduced, but there is still a lot to learn about them in subsequent books. I loved the setting and the idea of the pottery. I really learned a lot about the history of the North Carolina Potters and the process they used as well as how it was passed on to family members. Having said all that, the story was also a good one. Molly is a writer for a Collectables Magazine. Her mother is involved in collecting and selling pottery so Molly often goes to sales and auctions with her. At a kiln opening, one of the more undesirable, yet wealthy collectors dies. After an autopsy it is determined that he died of an insulin overdose. Was it accidental or murder? Molly begins to investigate and finds out more secrets involving collectors and potters alike. There is a love interest in the story, Matt, who works with Molly. He is shy and quiet, but Molly gets him to open up a little to her. I am sure we will learn more about Matt in the next books. A fun read that I very much enjoyed. Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.
