This is a good mystery. It has well developed characters. The protagonist is a pleasant, realistic woman. The antique business is described in an enlightening way. Massachusetts is nicely described. I believe I will enjoy the series.
It is a classical mystery format with enough clues given that the reader (if the reader so desires) can figure out the answer, but it isn't so obvious that it ruins the end.
Treasure hunting is not for the faint of heart. Luckily, Lucy St. Elmo, owner of the Cape Cod antiques shop St. Elmo Fine Antiques, has more than enough heart. What she needs to improve are her tracking skills-or else the wrong man could be convince of a one-of-a-kind murder.
