Description:

Callie Reed has put together a special event, but a killer is ripping it apart at the seams

As the new owner of a music box store in Keepsake Cove, a quaint town full of collectible shops on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Callie Reed is eager to get more involved in her community. So she volunteers to plan the fall street decorations and welcome a visiting author who's come for a special book signing. But the celebratory mood is cut short when the local B&B owner is found dead, killed with a pair of vintage scissors.

Suspicion is cast on the victim's estranged wife, Dorothy, who owns Keepsake Cove's vintage sewing shop. Callie is sure Dorothy is innocent, and the visiting author agrees. Together, they begin their own investigation, only to discover that many people in Keepsake Cove have secrets. Secrets that are worth killing to keep.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Callie Reed who is getting more involved with Keepsake Cove and volunteers to plan the decorations for fall on the street and help with the book tour coming to town.  Not long into this the local innkeeper is found dead and Dorothy his estranged wife is being looked at way to closely.  When the pressure is on and another person winds up dead Callie and local author Lyssa decided to help those involved and get to the bottom of what is going on.  Will Callie and Lyssa figure it out in time or would their goose get cooked.

This book is such a great add on to the series.  We get to see how the locals are doing and meet new people as they introduced.  This one brought on Lyssa a local mystery author who became fast friends with Callie.  She fits quite well with the locals.  You get the pleasure of the girls working through the case to find out the murderer and why!
