    Not as Good as Earlier Novels

    Compared to the first three books in the series, this was not as strong. 80% of the novel focused on romance and 20% on plot, sleuthing, and the paranormal.

    My New Favorite! You will love it too.

    I read Skirting the Grave in one night and enjoyed it so much. Annette Blair knows how to make a plot zing along so that you lose all track of time. Her characters are people you want to know and care about. Making it hard to choose which of the two hunks in the love triange to root for.

    The description of the vintage fashion and the carriage house turned shop are vivid and make me want to go there. I especially love that Ms Blair includes vintage purses! As usual with all of Annette Blair's books I laughed so hard and so often that my husband came looking for me to find out what I was up to.

    Buy it, read it, then join me in the delightful anticipation of the next one!

    Vintage Magic #4, An enigmatical writing style that kept me guessing.

    Madeira Cutler is well known in the world of fashion. In Mystic Falls, Connecticut, Maddie operates her designer vintage dress shop, Vintage Magic. Maddie receives psychometric vibes from items with tales to tell. The two people who know of this gift is her bff, Eve, and her on-again-off-again beau, FBI Special Agent Nick Jaconetti. While Nick has been away on assignment, Maddie has slowly been making friends with Detective Sergeant Lytton Werner. Lytton no longer tries to keep Maddie from investigating mysteries. In fact, Lytton has come to respect and value Maddie's thoughts and instincts - and that is in no way connected with the thermonuclear kiss they shared in the recent past. Brandy, Maddie's sister who does not believe in the paranormal, is coming home. She is the development director for the Nurture Kids Foundation and is holding a huge fund-raiser next weekend. As usual, Brandy has handed the entire responsibility of its planning and organizing over to Maddie. Brandy will arrive home shortly before the event date. In addition, Brandy has coerced Maddie into hiring a temporary intern, Isobel York. Isobel is a popular model. In exchange for teaching her design techniques, Isobel has shipped ahead a huge trunk filled with vintage clothing (as a gift) to Maddie. But when Maddie arrives at the train station to pick up her new intern she finds Detective Werner already there. According to Lytton, the deceased lying close by has photo identification naming her to be Isobel. So when Isobel's living body arrives late that evening Maddie calls Lytton and Nick, who is in town at the moment. Nick and Lytton are looking at some of the same players in separate cases. (Lytton with the body at the train station and Nick with a big embezzlement case.) They are also looking to win the same woman's affections. Maddie likes them both but, at the moment, does not consider either to be her boyfriend. She is too busy dealing with the upcoming fund-raiser and getting to know her new intern. Speaking of Isobel, Maddie cannot help but adore her. Isobel's knowledge and love of vintage clothing is vast. Maddie quickly finds herself having a blast with her intern. Problem is that Isobel comes from a rich and politically powerful family. Her father is Candidate Quincy York and he has decided to make his campaign headquarters in town. The York family members are not exactly close or loving. Though Candidate York is in town, he has not checked up on Isobel. He is using elements from both Nick and Lytton's cases to help boost his campaign. Grand-mère and a few other key players are also slithering around town. As the day of the fund-raiser draws near, so does a killer. *****This story is perfect for those who enjoy some romance in their mysteries - and a bit of the paranormal. Maddie's personal relationships with Nick and Lytton are a bit expedient. Now that a triangle has formed, I find things to be even more interesting than before. Isobel's arrival does not lessen the lethal amount of testosterone surrounding Maddie either Yet Blair still manages to keep the mystery plot moving forward. Blair has an enigmatical writing style that kept me guessing during the entire story. I kept feeling as if I were missing just one link. Any time I thought that I knew who was behind what and why, I was proven wrong. Whenever I open a book by Annette Blair, the real world fades away and I am guaranteed to be highly entertained.
