Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Antiques dealer Josie Prescott thought she left trouble behind in New York City, where she weathered a price-fixing scandal in 2006's Consigned to Death, but her efforts to start afresh in New Hampshire stall when she gets mixed up in murder in Cleland's adept second cozy. After the Portsmouth Women's Guild representative, Maisy Gaylor, drops dead from potassium cyanide poisoning at a benefit gala that Josie has sponsored, Detective Rowcliff insinuates that Josie might have been the possible target. Cleland keeps the reader guessing about the true target of the poison and the possible suspects. Did Britt Epps, the chairman of the fete, have it in for Maisy, or does the theft of a $20,000 Chinese porcelain tureen mean Josie should still be worried about her nemesis from her former New York auction house? With the help of her lawyer and the intermittent cooperation of a nosy reporter, Josie finds some surprising answers. (Apr.)

From Booklist

Antiques appraiser Josie Prescott has moved to New Hampshire and opened her own business after testifying against her boss spelled the end of her last position. With the new business prospering, she partners with the Portsmouth Women's Guild on a fund-raiser. The evening is going well until guild member Maisy Gaylor is poisoned. Who would want Maisy dead? Or was Josie the intended victim? Josie investigates, bumping heads with police detective Rowcliff and wondering if her old boss, recently released from prison, is out to even the score. Then a valuable "Birds and Flowers" tureen is stolen and a fake substituted, threatening Josie's reputation in the antiques community. While the brusque detective Rowcliff is a rather stereotypical cop, Josie is a multifaceted, vulnerable character who is trying to start a new life and a new romantic relationship. The story is framed with details of the antiques business, and numerous well-developed secondary characters populate the book, the second in a series that will appeal to Sharon Fiffer fans.
