Hi, I'm interested in Antique Mysteries. I've read all of Jonathan Gash's Lovejoy series (this got me interested in finding other authors like Jane K. Cleland's Consigned to Death and Deadly Appraisal; Also Elaine Finn's "Dealing in Murder, Tagged for Murder, Deadly Collection and Deadly Vintage;  Lea Wait - Shadows at the Fair and Shadows on the Coast of Maine;  Deborah Morgan's books (1st 3), Sharon Fiffer (1st 3), Tamar Myers (funny mystery author) and Barbara Allan -Antiques Roadkill.  What I'm hoping by posting here is if there are other authors just as good to read. I'm on a roll and don't want to stop!! Please email me if you can think of any other authors/books that fall into this category. 

Thanks, Brenda

There's also J.B. Stanley's collectible mysteries. I have all three of them on my wishlist. They are about antiques and collectibles. The reviews sound really good and so does the plot. I can't wait to find them somewhere or get a wishlist granted on them!

Titles are:

A Killer Collection

A Fatal Appraisal

A Deadly Dealer

I've read all three of the JB Stanley ones, and they're pretty good ...

I also have on Mt. TBR, the Cleland, three Morgan's, almost all of the Myers (I've read 2 or 3 so far), Elaine Flinn (I've read 1-3, and have 4 on TBR) and one Barbara Allan (acutally, one of my new favorite authors, Max Allan Collins and his wife, Barbara) ...

You've got me on any others, though ... you've got a pretty comprehensive list ...
