A Fatal Collection (A Keepsake Cove Mystery)
by Mary Ellen Hughes

This one has so many elements that I love including a community of shop keepers with specialty items, making them a small town to themselves. The shops have personalities as do the shopkeepers.

Keepsakes can have great emotional value and connection to an event or person. And some collectors are downright… obsessed! A Fatal Collection is downright enjoyable and holds great promise for the future.
~Back Porchervations

The mystery solving has a different route to it with no police involved at all which was a refreshing change. I highly recommend this to fans of cozy mysteries.

Overall, Callie and Keepsake Cove are going to become instant hits with cozy readers. . . It was a delight to read this book.
~Bibliophile Reviews

I was immediately enchanted with the town of Keepsake Cove and the inhabitants. I loved all of the specialty shops with their cutesy names and their even cuter shop owners.
~The Montana Bookaholic

This was a delightful cozy that was really enhanced by how charming the community of Keepsake Cove was.
~That’s What She’s Reading

I’m totally in love with the characters from Keepsake Cove. They’re well-rounded, developed characters that seem to have a complexity that we barely scratched the surface of in this book.
~Valerie’s Musings

A FATAL COLLECTION is a fantastic start to a new series. There’s a well plotted mystery and a hint of otherworldiness that makes this series debut a hit!
~Cozy Up With Kathy

The collection of shops and colorful characters sweep you in and make you want to stay.
~My Reading Journeys

I really enjoyed the setting of this book and the characters, who were all intriguing and well developed.
~Melina’s Book Blog

What an amazing setting for a story/series. Mary Ellen Hughes creates mind blowing imagery with her words. Each shop and cottage, the paths between, the music boxes and other keepsakes, come alive through her words.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

This was a fast read. I found myself sitting down to read just a few pages, and realizing I’d spent more time in Keepsake Cove than planned.

Callie Reed makes a long overdue visit to her aunt Melodie, who lives in a fairy-tale cottage in quaint Keepsake Cove, home to a bevy of unique collectible shops on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Just as they’re beginning to reconnect, Callie discovers her aunt’s body on the floor of her music box shop. Grief-stricken, Callie finds she can’t accept Melodie’s death being called accidental. How could her strong and healthy aunt take such a fatal fall? And why was she there in the middle of the night?

As Callie searches for the truth, signs seem to come from her late aunt through a favorite music box, urging Callie on. Or are they warnings? If Callie isn’t careful, she could meet a similar deadly fate amid Melodie’s collection.
