The Second in the Victorian Village Mystery Series
Kate Hamilton is back in her hometown of Asheboro, Maryland. Staying at the dead Cordelia’s B and B. Trying to save the town and its history from going under. The only thing that ever made money in the town was a shovel factory that has long closed. It as well as the fantastic Barton Mansion were left to the city to be sold.
As Kate gets ready to get down to business and find out where Barton’s money came from and go through all of his documents, people start popping up asking questions, about the research and what she has found. And when one of them turns up dead in the library things get dicey.
I have enjoyed this author’s works before however, this one was pretty flat. Kate isn’t a likable character. All of the characters seemed flat. Although the historical parts were interesting the people were not.
