Like knotted thread, unraveling the true truth wasn’t an easy task. But author Hughes expertly ties everything together in a reveal that had me riveted to my seat . . . I give A VINTAGE DEATH 5 out of 5 stars. Heck, I give it 10 out of 5 stars!

History, deceit and betrayal all are behind the scenes as Callie attempts to solve one murder while trying to become more involved in community activities. A second murder is so not what this town needs!
A Vintage Death was a delightfully entertaining mystery and I wanted to visit Callie’s shop so I could pick out my own music box. Callie is a fun, smart heroine and I absolutely loved her amazing personality.
The mystery had a lot of characters – and potential suspects. I am an avid mystery reader but did not solve this one before Callie did! I enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot.

The descriptive writing of the author pulled me into the story from the very beginning and pulled me along for a great read.
If you’d like to relax with a heartwarming traditional cozy mystery, A Vintage Death is a great choice. It has that perfect blend of enchanting setting, characters that you enjoy spending time with, and a well-crafted mystery.

Even in a delightful and scenic location like Keepsake Cove, Maryland, human greed, cupidity, and anger still flourish.

A fun and cozy read that will draw you in making you wish you were there.

This book is such a great add on to the series.
These characters are strongly visualized and each unique. As I’ve always found with a cozy mystery, the well-plotted storyline engages the reader with red herrings and plot twists.
This was a great new installment to the series! I really enjoyed it.
The plot is fast-moving, clever, and entertaining, with a thrilling climax. I love the ending!
Secrets are the keys to this mystery and the author draws readers in with an expert hand . . . I really enjoyed the way this story was written and played out. I would have finished the book all in one sitting but my eyes just would not cooperate.

A Vintage Death has a great balance of time spent visiting with the characters we know and love in Keepsake Cove, and sleuthing out the mystery with Callie.
I enjoyed the plot of this book, it was well thought out and it made the story flow very well. I love a good cozy that keeps me guessing to the very end, and this one sure did that.
