In Salem, Massachusetts, there are secret everywhere--even in the furniture. . .
When Lee Barrett spots the same style oak bureau she once had as a child on the WICH-TV show, Shopping Salem, she rushes to the antiques shop and buys the piece. Just like the beloved bureau she lost in a fire, this one has secret compartments. It also comes with an intriguing history--it was purchased in an estate sale from a home where a famous local murder took place.
The day after the bureau is delivered, Lee returns to the antiques shop and finds the owner dead. The police suspect the shop owner's unscrupulous business partner, but Lee wonders if the murder is connected to her new furniture. At least part of the answer may be revealed through a mirror in the bureau, tarnished and blackened, allowing Lee to tap into her psychic visions. Using this bureau of investigation, Lee may be able to furnish her policeman beau with the evidence needed to catch the killer--before the next one to be shut up is her. . .
This book follows Lee Barrett whose living with her aunt in Salem and working on decorating her apartment when she buys a dresser that matches one she had a child including hiding spots in it. The dresser mirror is trying to tell Lee something but she's not sure what and when the antique store owner winds up dead it's up to Lee to figure out what is going on before she winds up the next victim.
I enjoyed this book reading about Salem and the people Lee interacts with from her aunt, her boss, Her boyfriend and her friend River North. I love how this book also dealt with an old crime as well and a missing pink diamond.
