Description:

Angie's first auction may turn out to be her last--when she bids on a coat of arms that someone would literally kill to possess . . .

Tagging along to an estate sale with her fellow Needlepointer, antiques shop owner Sarah Byrne, Angie Curtis impulsively bids on a tattered embroidery of a coat of arms. When she gets her prize back home to Haven Harbor, she discovers a document from 1757 behind the framed needlework--a claim for a child from a foundling hospital. Intrigued, Angie is determined to find the common thread between the child and the coat of arms.

Accepting her reporter friend Clem Walker's invitation to talk about her find on the local TV news, Angie makes an appeal to anyone who might have information. Instead, both women receive death threats. When Clem is found shot to death in a parking lot, Angie fears her own life may be in jeopardy. She has to unravel this historical mystery--or she may be the next one going, going . . . gone . . .

My Thoughts:

This book follows Angie Curtis whose gone to her first auction and bought a coat of arms what she didn't count on was what was inside the artwork.  A certificate given when a child is given up to a hospital with only the name Charles.  What happened to the baby is anyone's guess.  Angie finds herself caught up in wanting to know the truth and with her friend Clem puts up a video on the news to find out more about the coat of arms.  What she didn't count on was the Clem being murdered and why?

Angie's life becomes in more danger as the days go by and Angie is reduced to hiding out.  Will the threats being sent to her ever end and how is it connected to a coat of arms?  Can Angie solve it with her normal methods when she is in hiding?

I love this series Lea Wait offers up so much in her latest book.  She pulls you in  the and won't let go until you uncover the murderer.  This book is so addicting you can't help but getting pulled in to Haven Harbor Maine.  Can't wait to see what is next for Angie and her family and friends!
