Book Review: Mint Condition Murder

Mint Condition Murder (Antiques & Collectibles Mysteries Book 9)Mint Condition Murder by Ellery Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Molly Appleby is a New England reporter for an antique collector’s magazine. But when she finds her next interview subject dead, she’s once again plunged into a whodunit. Now, solving a murder mystery is enough of a challenge, but she’s about to be hit with the reappearance of the dad that abandoned her and her mom when Molly was still a newborn. And then, a long-cold unsolved case starts to weave its way into the mystery. Complicated? You bet. Heaps of suspects? Absolutely. Family drama? Loads of it!

I found the story’s convoluted path led to to a satisfying conclusion. And I have to give a special round of applause for the classic ending scenario. I won’t give it away, but it’s one of those tropes that should be executed perfectly or not at all. I found it done to perfection—much like all the yummy food, especially baked goods, enjoyed by the characters.

My thanks to authors Ellery Adams and Parker Riggs, NetGalley, and Beyond the Page Publishing for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
