Review

"Sweet, 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...” -Hank Phillippe Ryan, The Other Woman

"Wait's story captures the unique atmosphere of Cape Cod. The characters are complex, and evolve, with the unexpected challenges." -- -Sheila Connolly, Buried in a Bag

More About the Author

I've been writing mysteries for grownups (the Shadows Antique Print Mystery Series and the Mainely Needlepoint Series) and historical fiction for young people set in 19th century Maine since I left corporate America in 1998 and moved to Maine, a state I've always loved and where I had family ties.

SHADOWS ON A MAINE CHRISTMAS, the seventh and latest in the Shadows series, was published in September, 2014, and was honored by Library Journal naming it one of the year's best Christmas reads.

THREADS OF EVIDENCE ("Suspense Magazine" called it "highly recommended") was published in September, 2015, the second in the Mainely Needlepoint series. TWISTED THREADS, the first in that series, debuted in January, 2015. THREAD AND GONE will be published in January of 2016.

LIVING AND WRITING ON THE COAST OF MAINE is my collection of essays about what it's like to be an author living in Maine. Full of love and humor, it shows how my work and life intersect.

And my latest book for young people, about two teenaged boys who really published their town's newspaper during the first two weeks of the Civil War, is UNCERTAIN GLORY.

I earned my B.A. at Chatham College (now Chatham University) and have graduate degrees from New York University. I've 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. 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!)

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 Goodreads, and read LIVING AND WRITING ON THE COAST OF MAINE and the blog (www.mainecrimewriters.com) I write 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!

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.

Lea Wait brings back Maggie for another life event. Her relationship with Will is refreshing and pleasantly without drama but full of life decisions. Maggie is in Cape Cod for her friend Gussie's move into a new home, a new shop and a fun wedding. I savored this book over 2 days because I so enjoy Ms. Wait's writing and her characters. I highly recommend this series.

Shadows on a Cape Cod Wedding is another in the series of Maggie Summers Antique Print mysteries. This was, as always an enjoyable read which leaves you wanting to read more.

The book starts immediately with Maggie finding a body on the beach when she arrives in Cape Cod for Gussie's wedding. There are a series of events including a Hurricane that leads to the climax. I did not have the killer figured out and was surprised to find out who it was.

Thanks, Lea for another enjoyable page turner. Can't wait for the next book.

Lea Wait has again scored a good book. The info about the lithographs, pictures and the prices they go for is great and educational. The story is a page turner though I did figure out who the culprit was in the middle of the book. The descriptions of the scenery actually make you think you are at the cape.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Shadows on a Cape Cod Wedding
Lea Wait
Perseverance, Apr 7 2013, $15.95
ISBN 9781564745316

On Cape Cod, Maggie Summers calls 911 when she finds a dead body on the beach. Winslow, Massachusetts Police Chief Ike Iron identifies the apparent drowning victim as drunkard Dan Jeffrey. Following standard operating procedures, Ike initiates an investigation into Dan's death.

While Ike looks into Dan's seemingly accidental death most likely caused by intoxication, Maid of Honor Maggie helps her best friend Aunt Augusta's Attic antique shop owner Gussie White prepare for the latter's wedding to lawyer Jim Dryden. As Ike revises his premise from accident to murder, the wedding preparations continue with last second modifications even as a hurricane veers towards the Cape and a second homicide occurs.

The latest Antique Print regional cozy (see Shadows on the Coast of Maine and Shadows of a Down East Summer) is an engaging whodunit as murders places dark Shadows on a Cape Cod Wedding. The whodunit is fun but not very tense as the wedding supersedes the inquiry. Still fans will enjoy attending Gussie's nuptials that weather, murder, a groom's cake shaped like a fish, and handicaps cannot deter.
