"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

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!

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.

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.

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.

I read Lea Wait’s first title in her Antique Print Mystery series and felt a bit lukewarm about the book. I thought I would try another title. SHADOWS ON A CAPE COD WEDDING did not impress me at all.
I didn’t really warm up to the characters at all, especially the main character of Maggie Summer. Maggie is extremely irritating to me. She is so nosey, arrogant and selfish. She has no connection to the town, its inhabitants, the murder victim or his relatives. Maggie would risk/jeopardize the wedding preparations of her friend, Gussie, her safety and her relationship with her boyfriend/fiancé, Will, in order to - What? - poke her nose into situations that don’t affect her? The situations were so unrealistic - popping unannounced into the police chief’s house and questioning his wife? meeting with teenage boys in a pizza parlor during a hurricane where they reveal the source for illegal drugs in the town? Totally, absolutely, unrealistic and demeaning to me as a reader.
Maggie Summer isn’t being ‘nice’ or helpful. She is being a rude snoop and gossipmonger.
I also find it unrealistic to think that a college professor could nonchalantly take off 10 to 14 days of prime instructional time to help a friend prepare for a wedding.
To top it all off, Maggie constantly whines about adopting a baby even though the adoption will alienate her from her fiancé. She can’t understand why Will thinks she is selfish.
Maggie Summer is an obnoxious main character. I do not like her one bit.
The mystery was not fleshed out at all. It was very lightweight and a bit confusing. I had no reason to care about any of the characters.
I didn’t get any sense of being on Cape Cod. My ‘sense of place’ meter had a very low reading.

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.

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.
