This mystery series starring antique dealer Abigail Timerlake Washburn has good plots and are very funny--if only they were written by someone else. I just don' care for the Tamar Myers style in any of her series. But if you don't mind that, you should like this tale of a priceless painting by Monet and a mouthy (and kidnapped) mynah bird of the same name.

Myers truly loves Charleston, S. C. as her descriptions are well written and sparkling funny. Abby, an antique dealer, buys a birdcage in the shape of the taj mahal with a talking bird named Monet. It is a fun rolic of a book.

If I could be anyone else, I think I'd pick Tamar Myers. Her characters really "ring true" for me and her sense of humor is delicious. Eat these books up - they are terrific "Brain Food", without the junk!

Welcome to the glory of Charleston South Carolina, where houses are big, gossip is bigger and intrigue and mystery run rampant. At least for Abigail Timberlake Washburn it does. The petite owner of an atiques shop in the heart of Charleston, just bought the Taj Mahal for ten thousand dollars. And it's occupant, a mynah names Monet. Much to her dismay her customers love the quirky bird so Abigail figures she's stuck with him, until her bird seems to fly the coop.

And then, mama Mozella disapears. And a note turns up demanding a real Monet in exchange for the talking one and Abigail's equally petite mother. Now Abigail and her trio of sleuths have to solve this mystery before the feathers, and Mozella, start to fly.

I laughed all the way through this book. I couldn't put it down. If you need a grab you and suspense you book, (as well as a good laugh), I would definately recommend this book.

Charleston antiques dealer Abigail Timberlake Washburn is thrilled by her recent estate auction purchase of a spectacular bejeweled birdcage from India, but not so much by its occupant a mouthy mynah named Monet. Still, her customers at the Den of Antiquity seem charmed by the insufferable birdbrain, so Abby figures she's stuck with him. That is, until she finds a stuffed starling resting on his usual perch with a ransom note demanding a real Monet (the painted variety) in exchange for her purloined pet.
