Second in the Molly Doyle series. Another dealer has been murdered at an Antiques show Molly was attending. As if this news wasn't bad enough, Molly's long-estranged sister shows up with her 12-yr.-old daughter, drops the child off at Molly's, and leaves town. Excellent follow-up to Flinn's first book, Dealing in Murder.
Totally loved this book and the whole series! Had to order the last one from Amazon. What a great cozy mystery! I have ordered all of hers, wish she were still alive to continue. I highly recommend reading all of them. The characters are fun and different and it's an easy, delightful read. A++
Molly Doyle crossed a continent to escape trouble but it's hard to be in the antiques business in her small corner of California. A friend/mentor in the business is murdered, her not-nice sister drops her delightful 12-year old niece on her and vanishes.
Book 2 in the Molly series. After leaving New York in disgrace, Molly has started over in Carmel. Life is looking up with her antique store doing well and making new friends. Then her sister shows up with 12 year old Emma, and disappears again, leaving Emma behind. And, of course, an apparent heart attack death of a friend turns out to be murder. Good series!
