Consigned to Death by Jane K. Cleland
If you like antiques, estate sales, tag sales and a mystery....this is the read for you. This is the first book in her Josie Prescott Antiques Mystery series. I would love to say this was a planned read, however I just stumbled upon this book in the library!!! I am so happy that I did...I loved reading it!
Josie Prescott has moved to New Hampshire after helping the police out in a price fixing scandal in her most Prestigious New York Firm. She is hoping to help restore her reputation in this new location. She has been contacted by Mr. Grant to get his houseful of antiques ready for auction. She is in awe of all the pieces she has found in his home. When she is contacted by Chief Alverez about her business with Mr. Grant and then asked to the police station, she is very concerned. It seems that Mr. Grant has been stabbed and she is the prime suspect!!!!
Mr. Grant's daughter and granddaughter, show up and ask Josie to continue her research on the antiques so they can take them to New York to be sold. This is not what the Psycho granddaughter wants...however he mother is boss. Seems there are some priceless treasures that can bring millions that are hidden away...
GREAT Mystery series. I am headed to the Library on Friday to get the next book in this series.
