A Vintage Death Reviews
This book seems to have everything I would enjoy. An October Festival full of hanging skeletons and ghosts and a book signing and reading by an author who writes paranormal stories. A quaint collector’s village with every type of collectible shop you can imagine…vintage music boxes, a vintage sewing shop, vintage cookware, a store called “Shake it Up” filled with vintage salt and pepper shakers, a bookstore; even a vintage Bed & Breakfast. The shop names were all so clever it made me want to ...more
Keepsake Cove is a wonderful town to live in and to visit. There are charming shops to explore, and great places to eat. The protagonist inherited her aunt’s music box shop in which her grampa was the original collector. I enjoy the author’s descriptions of the music boxes and the tunes they play. Featuring some wonderful secondary characters like her shop assistant who likes to dress as ‘famous characters’, and a great new author friend, Lyssa, who has a bubbly personality, plus the male romant ...more

Ohhh this was so good, and I didn't want it to end! I was wishing I could just hang around a bit longer in Keepsake Cove after the really awesome ending this book had.
It was fall in Keepsake Cove, and all the business owners were decorating and getting ready for all the extra business they hoped that author Lyssa Hammond's book event would bring them. When a local B&B owner was found stabbed with a pair of antique scissors, his estranged wife Dorothy was the major person of interest. Callie ...more
Very enjoyable! Also very timely tie-in with everything going on today. This was very entertaining and kept me guessing throughout. I love Tabitha and her crazy outfits and love the blossoming friendships in this series. Very well written and excited to read more in the series!
A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes is the second book of the cozy Keepsake Cove Mystery series. Each book in the series is centered around it’s own mystery so they can be read as a standalone if choosing to do so however there is some character building carried over story to story.
In the first book of the series Callie Reed had gone to visit her aunt Melodie in Keepsake Cove where her aunt owned a collectable music box store. However shortly after arriving Callie found her aunt murdered and wi ...more
