Synopsis: A mysterious woman appears on the doorstep of Great Aunt Sybil’s Attic in the middle of the night. Owner Anne Hillstrom lets her in, only to have the woman die in her arms. With no final words and only an old lantern clutched to her chest, the dead woman provides Anne and her partner CC precious few clues to discover her murderer or why she spent her last moments in their antique store. The two Antique Hunters search for clues, finding themselves entangled in a centuries-old mystery leading them to a cemetery in Ireland where a ghost from the past has left them a cryptic message, and a killer has left them no choice but to discover his identity before he kills again. On their journey, the two best friends encounter antiques, romance and the key to a murder.

Review: This is the fourth book in this series, but only the second one I have read. However, that fact does not deter from the ability to enjoy this book, as there are not an over-abundance to references to past books.

The friendship between Anne and CC is one of my favorite parts of this series. They have a great relationship and it is very realistically written and developed.  Anne is constantly making silly decisions that get her into trouble, but she's so sweet and quirky that you can't help but love her. 

The story is filled with mystery, adventure and humor.  If you love antiques with great history and/or cozy mysteries, this book is for you.

**I received a copy of this book through Great Escapes Book Tours, with no expectation of a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Four stars
