Shadows on the Coast of Maine was enjoyable However, I did get bogged down in the antique prints talk, and there seemed to be a lot of details that weren t terribly necessary for the actual story.That being said, the culprit of the murder caught me totally by surprise I was guessing one particular person and had even partially figured out the rationale behind the murder being committed but the person I d guessed was completely wrong.I also enjoyed reading about a town like Madoc, Maine, since I [...]

This intriguing cozy includes a murder, arson, tampered brakes, and ghosts in a 250 year old house in Maine Leave it two antiques dealers to suss out the answers while untangling multiple lies The end is surprising Read the series in order although it isn t necessary.

This second book in the Antique Print Mystery series is a delightful read There s an evocative Maine setting, the restoration of an old house that reveals secrets that might possibly a crying baby heard in the night, a contemporary murder, and an ending that I, for one, didn t see coming Add to that the author s considerable expertise in antiques, book stores, and antique fairs, and especially in old prints and I was hooked.Especially appealing is the way she precedes each chapter with a catalog [...]

It s been a while since I have read mysteries one of my first loves I very much enjoyed this mystery and look forward to reading others in the series, as well as the author s new series when it come out next year The information about antiquing was interesting, the romance just enough to be interesting, the history fascinating, and the mystery I was able to figure out, but not too soon There were some interesting twists, even early on in the story While there were a few plot points that I felt w [...]

This author in an antiques print expert in real life and offers lots of interesting information about vintage prints in her fiction I found myself interested in that than the mystery, which had a few flaws in it I think she included a few too many mysterious things than were needed Plus one key situation, early in the book, didn t make sense by the ending In fact, even the author wrote in the denouement, She decided not to point out that there was no need for so I think she wrote herself into a [...]

I had figured out parts, and was wrong on parts, but the actual culprit totally took me by surprise I enjoyed this book better than the first, because it was much subtle I liked how the print notes at the beginning of each chapter subtly related to the content of the chapter And I like the way Maggie s personal life is heading Some of the insider notes on the antique business got bogged down at times, but only slightly so in the first, whodunit seemed glarily misleadingly obvious, so I knew my [...]

The book had a great idea, a friend buys what appears to be a haunted house in Maine, bad things happen and Maggie, our lead character, goes to the rescue Unfortunately, this book isn t very well written and never follows through on the promise of entertainment All the characters, even the main one, come off as rather flat The townspeople were xenophobic to anyone not from the area and the plot wasn t very unbelievable.It did have some interesting background on antique prints, but it wasn t enou [...]

The second in the Antique Print series by Lea Wait is by far my favorite in a very well written and well plotted series Maggie Summer answers a call from an old friend to supply the prints in her newly renovated eighteenth century house in Maine Once there Maggie learns of ghostly cries and a body appearing on the grounds convinces Maggie that it is than ghosts at work The characters are very true to life and believable, the setting is atmospheric and charming at the same time, and the story cl [...]

Number two of the Antique Print mystery series I really enjoy cozy mysteries Again, this isn t my most favorite cozy mystery series I like Jenn McKinlay s Library Lover s and Cupcake Bakery mysteries, as well as Cricket McRae s Home Crafting mysteries a little better , but I definitely have enjoyed it This book in particular makes me want to go antiquing in Maine I may have to settle for an episode of Antiques Roadshow though.

Really loved the bits concerning home renovation and detailed information about antiques I would have liked to see these aspects be front and center closely tied to the storyline, because I thought the plot was rather humdrum, and the characters not as fleshed out as they might have been Not sure if I d recommend or not, but I can t deny that it was somewhat entertaining, so I might give another book by this author a shot.

The second mystery in the series reconnects Maggie to a college roommate and her husband in the painful throes of renovating an old house in Maine Again, the plot lines are layered and unexpected the references and connections to art and history, especially the Civil War, bring a complexity to the novel, a fresh perspective to the Civil War, and a wealth of information about the antique prints to the reader.

This mystery was a nice quick summer read The author offers enough possible motives for characters to keep the reader guessing, and the ending was not completely obvious The best part of this book, however, was the author s description of the old house that the main character is visiting The house becomes almost a character in the story, and the descriptions brought my mind back to the old New England home where I grew up.

I listened to the first half of this book on CD, then I got a bad disc, so I switched to reading the book I liked the narrator and was enjoying the mystery until I started reading it, then it got boring So only 2 stars This is a series, I have read one other some time ago They aren t too exciting, but good enough to read now and then.

The second in the series, Shadows on the Coast of Maine is much palatable than the first It s still a very strong dose of antiques and restoration information, but you can skim over these pages and not miss anything relevant to the story The plot s pulled together and Wait did a better job of fleshing out her characters.

This author lives in my hometown and is wicked nice Her Antique Print Mysteries is so much fun perfect to read on a dark and stormy night when the wind is howling outside your window This one takes place in Maine, which is the perfect setting for creepy tales, and I think it s fun to read about familiar places.
