Synopsis: Olivia McKenna is a young woman with a passion for antiques and a penchant for mystery. Owning her own little antique finding business is just enough to keep her and her Golden Retriever, Molly fed, housed and happy. While shopping for antiques in a quaint little store, she discovers a body and becomes embroiled in a murder investigation, soon finding herself the victim of a stalker. The investigation is being handled by a handsome State Police Detective named Josh Abrams. Josh and Olivia feel an immediate connection and attraction. Can she and Josh discover who is after her before they wind up in more trouble than they can handle?

Review: A great debut novel from this author. It's easy to tell that she knows the White Mountains area well, from her descriptive writing. 

Olivia is an easily likable character. She seems like the sort of person I would want to get to know in real life. We could go antique shopping together, and solve mysteries together.  And the fact that she's an animal lover is definitely another plus.

Ms. Firebaugh has a unique writing style which makes the story come alive for the reader. There is romance involved in the story but it doesn't detract from the mystery. I look forward to more books in this series.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Four stars
