Customer Reviews

You actually learn about buttons while you are reading this book.
Cherylpm
With some interesting twists and turns, along with realistic characters and relationships, Hot Button is a good mystery.
Laura Hinds
In this book, that is even more the case, and it's just not an interesting story line.

Hot Button is the second book in A Button Box Mystery series. A very good follow up to Button Holed.

Button collector Josie Giancola is busy getting ready for the International Society of Antique Button Collectors annual meeting, for which she is the chairperson. She is meeting Thad Wyant, who is the Guest of Honor, at O'Hare Airport. He is a bit of a recluse and is the owner of a historic Geronimo button. Out of the blue Josie ex-husband, Kaz, shows up to provide a limo to go to the hotel in. Kaz only shows up when he needs something and this is bad time as Josie is dealing with a high maintenance guest speaker. That evening at opening event of meeting, a boat ride to view the skyline of Chicago. The cruise is underway and Josie is walking around talking with the guests and hears a loud discussion going on between Thad and a lady. Then Thad makes a big deal about the meat he is about to be served and Josie is wondering what else can go wrong.

The next day, just as time is getting near to introduce Thad and his Geronimo button,Josie is asked by the head of security to come down to the laundry room. When she gets there, she find that Thad has been stabbed in the throat with an awl similar to those sold by one the vendors at the show. Josie has quite a few suspects to sort through before she can help the police to narrow the search and apprehend the murderer.

The enjoyable cast of characters from the first book are back once again. Kaz is behaving himself in this book and actually of some help to Josie. On Josie's home front, Nev, her maybe boyfriend is back, too.

Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Not a lot of talk about buttons, so don't pass up this series if you haven't lost yours.

Josie Giancola, owner of the Button Box and chairwoman of the Antique and Vintage Button Collector's conference, is all excited at convincing Thad Wynant to be the keynote speaker at this year's gathering. Thad, a noted recluse, has never attended the conference before but he is well known for his expertise in western themed buttons and his writing about the famous and much coveted "Geronimo" button. The only documented one in existence just happens to belong to Thad.

Josie, as a novice chairwoman, wants everything to go smoothly, however, things start to go downhill even before the conference officially begins. Thad has run-ins with two other attendees on the after dinner cruise on the first night. He managed to push a lot of people's buttons in a bad way in a very short time. The morning after the cruise, Thad is found murdered and the famous Geronimo button is missing. No surprise here because Thad proved to be one totally obnoxious person. Not a propitious start for Josie's first attempt at chairing this prestigious event!

Josie's detective friend, Nevin Riley, asks Josie to help him because she has the specialized button knowledge to help nail the murderer.

I liked this format where the police asked for help and it made sense. Some cozies feature a TSTL heroine who tries to solve the murder against specific police instructions. Josie uses her head and her expertise, not relying on foolish antics.

Although this is the 2nd book in the series, it is not necessary to have read the first. Logan incorporates enough back story in the plot to feel caught up with the characters. Even though I did figure out "whodunnit" halfway through the book, it did not take away from my enjoyment of the story. Hot Button (Button Box Mystery)

Everyone attending the "International Society of Antique and Vintage Button Collectors" convention was long past playing the game, Button, Button, Who's Got the Button? That simple MOP, or mother of pearl button, once used in many a childhood game was of high interest at the convention. In fact, such a button could have been one of the fabled Geronimo buttons, something the mere thought of gave Josie Giancola heart palpitations. Geronimo had once sold the very buttons off his shirt and then had sewn another one on in preparation for the next sucker. As chair of the convention Josie had scored a coup when the reclusive Thad Wyant agreed to give the keynote address. Thad, an "expert extraordinaire on Western themed buttons," would definitely liven up the festivities.

Chase Cadell, a rival Western button expert and collector, was livid at the mere thought of Thad on the podium. When the guest speaker actually showed up, Josie would soon regret the designation. Thad, who was allegedly bringing a Geronimo button to the convention, replete with provenance, also brought a little something else along with him ... his boorish manners. The "button rockstar" was more like someone who was featured in a B-rated Spaghetti Western as he annoyed everyone in sight. To add to her troubles Josie's pushy ex, Mitchell "Kaz" Kazlowski took it upon himself to "assist" her at the convention. The only thing Josie and Kaz agreed upon was that Thad was noisy and obnoxious.

After the dinner cruise the festivities livened up in a way even Josie couldn't imagine when a woman began to scream at Thad. "I can't believe you'd have the nerve to show up here you son of a ..." Mr.
