A Devious Lot ( Antiques and Collectibles Mystery #5) by Ellery Adams and Parker Riggs

A Devious Lot

4 stars

I am a big fan now of Ellery Adams thanks to Tantor Media.  I went into book one with no expectations except to listen and write an honest review.  From the first book until now, I am loving this cozy mystery.  I was a little concerned with this installment since there now is a co-author.  Not to fear, Molly Appleby, her mother Clair, and her new husband are front and center.  Molly and Matt are honeymooning in England where they spend some time with Molly’s great aunt in a quaint village.  As fate would have it Molly stumbles upon a murder thanks to a cat.  Molly is soon pulled into the investigation.  The book does take the reader back and forth to 1851 until present day.  I loved the history aspect of the book and even more loved her past and present are combined to solve a mystery.

The setting in this book was so detailed that this reader found herself sitting in a small countryside café drinking tea.  Molly is such a strong character but is not overbearing.  Matt supports Molly in anything that she does even when she does get herself wrapped up in murder.  This book could easily be a stand a lone, but I recommend starting at the beginning in order to fully understand and fall in love with these characters.

Kudos to Ms. Adams, Andi Arndt (the narrator) and Tantor Media for offering me this book in exchange for an honest review.
