Overview

All antiques dealer Abigail Timberlake Washburn wanted was to find a perfect gift for her darling (if not altogether together) mama Mozella's birthday. She never expected her online purchase of an exquisite, seventeenth-century rosewood linen chest to place her in federal custody, accused of trafficking in illegal ivory! Then insult is heaped on her injury when she's forced to turn to her lawyer-snake ex, Buford, to spring her—since ex-cop /current hubby Greg's “good ol' boy” contacts don't happen to include any feds.

Abby may be small in stature, but she's a force to be reckoned with when riled—and she's determined to root out the real smugglers who she blames for her recent indignities. But in her zeal to stick it to the elephant eliminators who have invaded her beloved Charleston, Abby might just land herself and mama alike up to their pearly whites in lethally hot water!

Agree they have lost plot and humor is no longer funny but quick read and avoids inceased grafic details that series keep plpiling bon in an attempt to kerp up with the "trend" for reality. I hope the author is still with us.

Ivorykit had enjoyed the tour immensely. She had seen the tall stone and the healers den. The fighters and their fighters in traning. Or FITS. There were the oldens and the mothers and the kittens. She felt welcome and well fed now. Until Blazefaether went off somewhere and left her im the dust alone and a bit lost. She cried hoping someone might hear" Help!" Suddenly she was picked up by a plumper gray she cat with rd ees and wrinklea from laughter. " Lost?" Said the shecat. " Yes" said Ivirykit. " Allow me. Im redfern. A senior fighter" " Pleased to meet you " said Ivorykit. Thus makred the beginning of a wonderfu lfriendship . Redfern was as lonley as ivorykit was and they suited eachother. Ivorykiy nursed and cared for the older cat and redfern taught her fighter things so she would be set ro become a FIT . So it was that ivorykit became an ivorypaw and her mentor was a spry she cat named silvee. Silver was patient and kind and for this Ivorypaw was thankful. She worked hard and dedicated herself to Redfern and traning. One night as the sun set Redfern aaked Ivorypaws most delicious forbidden dream. " Ivory will you be my daughter officially?" Naturally and joyusly ivorypaw said she would be honkred. So the sun shone on the little white cats life and she found joy and love again. One night as she slept in her downy nest a starry cat came to her. " Oh Ivorypaw. Beware The Flames And The Ash. Run. Run. Run. Blood for The Fire Screams For The Stars. " Ivorypaw awoke suddenky. The blaze dissapeared and she saw she was in the FIT den. She looked at her sleeping friends and cried softly unsure of ehat would come alone in the dark.

I absolutely loved this book. Tamar outdoes herself with every book in this series. Abby just gets funnier and funnier... and the character of CJ is hysterical with her Shelby stories. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

I enjoy this series; however, it has dropped in quality with each installment. The characters are easy to like and the setting has a lot of charm for me. Unfortunately, the quality of the writing in this book is poor - it needs a good editor. There are many, many mistakes throughout the book (especially grammar mistakes). There is also a great deal of repetitive terms used for descriptions that is annoying to me (minimadre, anyone?). The quality of the writing is bothersome enough to keep me from enjoying the book fully.

I always enjoy her books but do enjoy the antique stories with Abagail more than the Penn. Dutch.

I am a fan of Tamar Myers' writing and love both of the series she writes. This particular book was a fun escape from reality. The characters are endearing and they make you root for the good guy and the underdog. When I pick up a cozy mystery book, I expect to be trqnsported away from the realities of life and Ms Myers has a knack for doing just that. The mystery in this novel is a little outlandish, but still makes you want to keep reading to find out who the bad guy is. The relationships between Abigail and her mother, friends and husband are waht make the book move along. If you are looking for an escape or summer read, pick this one up!

I finished this book only because I paid for it. The book dragged for me, the conversations with her wacko mother and some other characters were pointless and not needed. Some may find this style amusing, not me. I just finished it and couldn't tell you what it was about, that forgetable. I was also offended by some of her comments on ethnic groups.Go back to your old style where mystery was the meat of the book, not your mother.
