Josie Prescott is the owner of Prescott’s Antiques and Auction. When her best friend acquires a rare Japanese Woodblock print, Josie is excited to be able to appraise the piece for her.
When Josie arrives early for a meeting with Mo, she discovers a body at the bottom of a cliff. Josie is devastated to learn that the body is her best friend, Mo. Josie is confident that the rare print is the reason Mo was murdered. Although Josie is an amateur sleuth, she is determined to find the culprit of her best friend’s murder. While she is planning her wedding, Josie becomes entangled in a mystery plot with several suspects.
ANTIQUE BLUES is the twelfth book in the series. Although this is my first book by Jane K. Cleland, I had no trouble following along with the plot and characters. Ms. Cleland pens a charming tale with a soft-spoken main character and a host of animated secondary characters weaved into vivid imagery.
Josie is a likable character with a strong belief in honesty and truth. She is not afraid to uncover what a person is hiding to get to the truth of murder.
ANTIQUE BLUES is a novel based on a continuance romance and a mystery that can be read by people of all ages.
