Overview

Antique print dealer Maggie Summer is visiting Cape Cod to help her best friend, Gussie, with wedding preparations. But Gussie's quaint little town doesn't seem as friendly after Maggie finds the body of Gussie's neighbor on the beach and questions why the man's daughter says he died two years before - in a Colorado car crash. As Maggie gets more and more involved in the investigation, Gussie and Maggie's beau, Will, both begin to wonder: is Maggie avoiding confronting some of her own issues? But then there's another murder, storm winds start rising, and Maggie finds herself the next target. Maybe this time, she's has gotten in too deep.

Lea Wait's 6th "Shadows" Antique Print mystery is set in Cape Cod, where Maggie Summer has come for her friend Gussie's wedding. The action starts immediately when Maggie finds a body on the beach. Gussie is now in a wheelchair due to her Post-Polio Syndrome, and she's moving into a new house and antique shop. A hurricane is on the way to complicate things. We find out more about the dead man's past. People are in danger from someone, and there's another death. Even Maggie might be a target. Wedding preparations are a unifying element in the mystery. Will Brower, Maggie's love, joins her for the wedding. But Maggie is so involved in the crime that he begins to complain. The killer is found, but not until after some danger to Maggie. But we won't know how Maggie's personal problems will turn out until Wait writes the 7th Shadows mystery. We hope she's fast writer! I M Calliope

Living at the Jersey Shore and recently experiencing 2 hurricanes, I found the hurricane theme very realistic. Maggie continues to think about a serious decision she must make. And all of this with a wedding and a murder to solve. What more can you ask for in a book? Very enjoyable.

I've read the books in this series in the order written and this was my favorite as the characters have become closer in their relationships as I feel they are friends of mine.  The murder in this case was totally an unexpected finding of a dead body on the beach.The murderer was unexpected, too!  How delightful in a mystery book.  It is possible to read the titles out of order, but the characters make more sense when you've seen them develop from the get-go!

Fun mystery set in my favorite place, Cape Cod. Unfinished ending was a little disappointing.
