The town of Keepsake Cove is unique, and the characters are intriguing. I enjoyed the story.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

The mystery had its share of twists and turns. There turned out to be more suspects than originally perceived. Secrets revealed really took the case in a different direction. I was surprised by the way everything played out.

I enjoyed the kind-hearted protagonist, the interesting town setting, and Callie’s music box shop.

A CURIO KILLING is a well-plotted mystery filled with interesting characters. I enjoyed my time in Keepsake Cove and look forward to returning.

Overall we really enjoyed this book and feel like the series is continuing to improve and become stronger books. I can’t wait to see what is in store for book 4. We give this book 5 paws up.
~Storeybook Reviews

A Curio Killing is well-paced and well-written, with a charming setting and a cast of truly likable characters (and a handful of truly unlikeable ones, too, as is typical of the cozy genre).
~Reading Is My SuperPower

The mystery in this novel was interesting. I liked the glimpses it gave us into Callie’s life before Keepsake Cove, and I appreciated her loyalty to her ex-boyfriend Hank, and her determination to clear his name.

Callie finds treble in Keepsake Cove when her ex-boyfriend is framed for murder . . . 

Callie Reed is looking forward to her first Keepsake Cove spring festival. But her excitement dims considerably when she learns that her ex-boyfriend, Hank, will be performing with one of the hired country-western bands. Callie vows to keep her distance, but that changes when the band’s manager, Bobby Linville, is found dead, killed with the music box Hank bought at Callie’s shop.

Hank is soon singing a sad tune in a detention center with Callie his only lifeline. Though thoroughly aware of his many faults, she knows violence and murder aren’t in his blood. But that means one of her fellow Keepsake Cove residents must be hiding a dark secret—something Callie desperately needs to uncover.
