A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes

A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes

My Thoughts

A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes is the second book in the Keepsake Cove mystery series. I adored the first book and was so excited for this one to come out. In this installment, Callie is trying to figure out who wanted a local B&B owner dead – suspicion is on his estranged wife, but Callie knows Dorothy is innocent. She sets out (along with a visiting author, Lyssa) to prove Dorothy is innocent and track down the real killer. A Vintage Death has a great balance of time spent visiting with the characters we know and love in Keepsake Cove, and sleuthing out the mystery with Callie. I felt that the clues were presented in such …
