Death of a Rug Lord (Den of Antiquity Series #14) by Tamar Myers

Business isn't booming for antiques dealer Abigail Timberlake Washburn. A local rug store is luring away her customers with its rock-bottom prices. Eager to check out the competition, Abby is delighted to find a priceless Persian amid the cut-rate carpets—and shocked when Gwendolyn Spears, the store's beleaguered owner, begs her to take it home! Abby feels more than a little guilty about getting such a great deal . . . especially when Gwendolyn is found dead the next morning.

Investigating the brutal murder, Abby soon discovers that the prized Orientals of Charleston's society dames are nothing more than cheap fakes . . . and that a dangerous thief will do anything to pull the rug out from under her.

I just finished reading this long awaited Den of Antiquity book. As usual Abby is hilariously funny as is CJ. Ok, so Abby's mom is featured just a bit too much in this book which was not the highlight of the book. I never ceases to amaze how Abby always manages to get herself into so much trouble and how she manages to get herself out of it. Although it wasn't Tamar's best book, it still enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one. Hopefully Abby's mother won't be in it so much.

This was a very disappointing read. I only finished it because I paid for it!!! Abby's mother was heavily featured in the offering. It got old fast. I was tired of hearing about the mothers crinolines!!The dialog between Abby and her mom was at times impossible to follow and seemed to have nothing to do with the story. Maybe that was the point, but I missed it! The whole story was hard to follow or again maybe I so not liked the book I didn't care what was happening. I have read all her other books and loved them!! I hope the next one gets back her old style.
