Another winning cozy by Tamar Myers! If you appreciate antiques, you are sure to enjoy her Den of Antiquity series, starring Abigal Timberlake Washburn as the very likeable shop owner and amateur sleuth. Abigail has had a falling out with her BFF, Wynnell Crawford, over the appropriateness of a statue of David that Wynnell used on one of Abigail's jobs and which also just might have been used as a murder weapon. Abigail must swallow her pride if there is any hope of getting Wynnell out of jail and finding the real killer. Suspects abound as Abigail finds herself the center of some very unwanted attention. A fast, fun read with a cast of believable and enjoyable characters. This wasn't my first Den of Antiquity experience, and it won't be my last!

Naturally Abby has to investigate to help her friend -- with the usual hilarious results.
First book of this author I have read - it was pretty good and she surprised me with the perpetrator of the deed. Takes place in Charleston, South Carolina and it is obvious that the author is familiar with the area. Lots of funny dialog too.
Again, Tamer Myers brings fun and laughter with her Den of Antiquity series, starring a likeable heroine with lots of great background characters who remind you of someone you know!
