Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sweet, charming, and cozy as a Cape Cod summer. These lovely characters and their deceptively welcoming little town will captivate fans of Cabot Cove and St. Mary Mead-and the cleverly written puzzle is a perfect treat for mystery readers.” -Hank Phillippe Ryan, The Other Woman

"Wait's story captures the unique atmosphere of Cape Cod, and a wedding there fits seamlessly within its setting, until a body opens the door to old stories and new complications. . . The characters are complex, and continue to evolve with unexpected challenges." -Sheila Connolly, Buried in a Bag

About the Author

Lea Wait has been an antiques dealer (fourth-generation) since 1977. Besides her Agatha Award-nominated six-book mystery series about antique print dealer Maggie Summer, she also writes books for young people. The mother of four adopted Asian daughters, now grown, she lives in Maine with her artist husband.

More About the Author

I've been writing mysteries for grownups (the Shadows Antique Print Mystery Series) and historical fiction set in Maine for young people since I left corporate America in 1998 and moved to Maine, a state I've always loved. In 2014 Kensington will be publishing the first book in a new mystery series I've written, set in Mane; Islandport Press will publish Uncertain Glory, my latest historical for young people, this one set in 1861; and Shadows on a Maine Christmas -- the 7th in the Shadows series - will be out in time for the holidays. A busy year!
I earned my B.A. at Chatham College and did graduate work at New York University. I've also owned an antique print business, MAH Antiques, since 1976. I adopted my 4 wonderful daughters when I was a single parent. They're grown now, and I have eight perfect grandchildren. (Aren't all grandchildren perfect?) In 2003 I married Bob Thomas, a man I've known and loved since 1968 .. sometimes life moves in slow but steady ways. Bob's an artist, and is immensely supportive of my writing. (He even does all the errands and cooking so I have no excuses to leave my desk!) I'm very lucky to have achieved so many of my goals in life, and to have had fun doing it. My favorite quotation is "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved." William Jennings Bryan wrote that, but I think it defines my life. For more information about me, check my website, www.leawait.com, friend me on Facebook, and check the blog www.mainecrimewriters.com, where I blog with 9 other mystery writers from Maine. And remember -- LIFE is the REAL mystery!

Maggie Summers is back in the next in the Antique Prints mystery series. Yipee. She is in Winslow, MA helping her friend Gus with her upcoming wedding. It was wonderful to read and catch up with these two friends. I always learn something about antiques or architecture while being wonderfully entertained with the mystery. I didn't figure this one out at all. Delightful. If you have not read this series, you need to start! It will quickly become a favorite. Thanks, Lea. Hope there are many more to come!

The only problem is Lea Wait needs to write faster . This series is so enjoyable. Even love the prints at the top of each chapter.

I am a huge fan of Lea Wait and her Maggie Summer novels. Maggie goes to Cape Code to attend her best friends wedding. Upon arrival, she stumbles onto a dead body. The ever curious Maggie now wants to know who he is and what happened to him. In true Maggie fashion, she will not rest until she has the answers. I highly recommend this book and all of Lea Wait's books. Lea is a fantastic writer who really knows how to weave a story. If you haven't discovered Lea yet, you're in for a real treat.

In Lea Wait's 6th "Shadows" mystery, the shadows are accompanied by a hurricane, murders, and a wedding. This is a solid mystery in a new setting, and you'll keep reading to the end.

As usual in Wait's "Shadows" mysteries, each chapter begins with information on an antique print that has some bearing on the plot. This is another good dimension to the story.

The town of Winslow is the home of an unusual assortment of natives, including a deaf woman, and a young woman with a link to another character. Gussie, Maggie's friend and the bride, is now wheelchair-bound because of Post-Polio Syndrome. She's also moving into a new house and antique shop, with Maggie's help. And the storm is coming. The action moves right along. On Maggie's first beach walk, she finds a body. The man's past life comes into the plot. Why didn't the sheriff like him? People are in danger from someone, including Maggie. Has she learned too much?

Will Brower, Maggie's love, is down from Maine for the wedding. Maggie is so wrapped up solving the mysteries that Will almost takes second place for awhile. And there's the issue of Maggie's desire to adopt children, which Will is against. But we'll have to wait for the 7th "Shadows" mystery to find out the answer to this impasse.

A somewhat simple story -- good beach book but doesn't really say much about Cape Cod. I read something like this after I've read something heavy.

This sixth novel in an unique mystery series known as 'An Antique Print Mystery' was eagerly awaited by myself. Ms. Wait teaches us fascinating facts of Prints, Lithographs, Engravings, and history of same throughout the novel and at the beginning of each chapter.

Maggie Summer, the main character is an Antique Print Dealer who travels to art shows, antique fairs etc. Maggie is also a college professor teaching history through the use of her collection of prints and more. Throughout the series, Maggie has made a dear friend of fellow antique doll dealer, Gussie who is getting married. Gussie lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Maggie, being the Maid of Honor, drives down from New Jersey to help her friend get ready for the big day. Gussie has Post Polio Syndrome and is becoming restricted to a wheelchair.

Arriving ahead of her friend at the new home on the Cape in scenic town Winslow, Maggie takes a walk down the boardwalk and finds...a dead man. As Maggie thinks, 'Welcome to Massachusetts.'

The mystery twists and turns and churns as identities are disclosed and the darker underbelly of the town is exposed during a hurricaine. The suspense builds and crashes down on Maggie as her personal life becomes mired down as well.

This book was captivating and kept me turning the pages. I was not disappointed and now must eagerly await the next story in the series.

Once again Lea Wait has produced a dandy mystery. And a great solution, which I didn't see coming.
Her descriptions of places and things puts the reader 'right there'. I have read all of the books in the Shadows series and this one tops the list.
And also very much enjoy the descriptions of the various prints listed. Always learning something new. Try it; you'll like it!
