The second in the Antiques & Collectible series by New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams.

In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder.

Molly Appleby loves her job at Collector’s Weekly covering auctions and estate sales all over the South. When her latest assignment takes her to Richmond, Virginia, to interview the staff of the hit TV show Hidden Treasures, she’s expecting a quick, fun trip. But when one of the show’s appraisers is found murdered, Molly realizes that once again she’ll have to put on her detective’s cap until the culprit is captured.

As Richmond locals flock to the show hoping their family heirlooms turn out to be valuable antiques, Molly’s busy behind the scenes interviewing the show’s staff and tracking down clues. When yet another staff member is killed and Molly herself is threatened, she’s determined to discover which of the expert cast members of Hidden Treasures might be hiding a sinister secret, because no matter how priceless, she knows that no antique is literally to die for.

“I’ve read all the books in this series and am really hoping she continues to write more. I can’t speak more highly about these books. They’re unique, well-written, and incredibly enjoyable!” —Goodreads

This is a fully revised edition of a book originally published under the name J. B. Stanley.

Molly Appleby lover her job writing about auctions and estate sales. She also loves to dabble at being a detective. When an appraiser she is interviewing turns up dead, she must find out who did it. Did she kiss the killer? I love Ellery Adams work and find this series not to be a disappointment.

I've been a bit captivated by this Ellery Adams series. I love an easy read mystery and hers flow breezily from the page with fun and quirky characters with whom the reader is easily able to identify. The interaction between the main characters just settles comfortably with me as I see their frustrations with one another along with their loyalties and caring/love. The mysteries are interesting and there is a fun twist in each book along with interesting info about the world of antiquing which, until this series, I had no interest in. The reads are always interesting, never laden with dull background on pieces, just enough to be informative and add to the storylines. I just finished the 3rd book in this series, and recommend each and every one. Glad I read them in order, though each can certainly stand on its own.

An enjoyable lighthearted read that captures the imagination. The heroine, Molly, manages to attract a handsome appraiser while also discovering not one but 2 dead bodies! I spent a quiet Sunday afternoon engrossed in this fun yet believable tale.
