Book Summary

Angie’s first auction may turn out to be her last—when she bids on a coat of arms that someone would literally kill to possess . . .
 
Tagging along to an estate sale with her fellow Needlepointer, antiques shop owner Sarah Byrne, Angie Curtis impulsively bids on a tattered embroidery of a coat of arms. When she gets her prize back home to Haven Harbor, she discovers a document from 1757 behind the framed needlework—a claim for a child from a foundling hospital. Intrigued, Angie is determined to find the common thread between the child and the coat of arms.

Accepting her reporter friend Clem Walker’s invitation to talk about her find on the local TV news, Angie makes an appeal to anyone who might have information. Instead, both women receive death threats. When Clem is found shot to death in a parking lot, Angie fears her own life may be in jeopardy. She has to unravel this historical mystery—or she may be the next one going, going . . . gone . .

Book Review by Bree Herron

Oh, this was a mystery for me! I loved every single moment of this book and I really loved the mystery within the mystery. Angie is a sleuth after my own heart, willing to work hard to the very end to solve the story. I loved the history that was layered into the plot and helped me along with the way with clues. It will go by so fast as you race through the story to solve this puzzle and then you will probably be sad like me for finishing such a good mystery too fast! Savor this read my friends it is worth every moment.
