Review
  • In this fourth in a series, Carmel, California, antiques shop manager Molly Doyle decides to expand into interior design and is hired to create a Mediterranean mood in the wine-tasting room at Carla Jessop's winery. Unfortunately, Molly and Carla's husband, Todd, clash over the design of the room, and Molly throws a glass of wine in his face. After Todd is shot to death, Molly naturally becomes one of the main suspects and, even more naturally, feels obligated to take part in the investigation.Complicating matters, a man seems to be stalking Molly and her 12-year-old niece, Emma, who lives with her. Molly, who left New York after her husband committed antiques fraud, has started a new life in Carmel with good friends, her niece, and a job she loves, if only murder wouldn't keep interfering. Cozy fans willing to accept the premise will enjoy Molly, her world, and the beautiful California setting. -- O'Brien, Sue (Reviewed 09-15-2007) (Booklist, vol 104, number 2, p38)
  • Carmel, Calif., comes alive in Flinn's engaging fourth mystery to feature Molly Doyle, antiques dealer and reluctant but adept sleuth. Having barely begun to recover from her last adventure, Deadly Collection (2006), with the help of her close-knit group of friends and her 12-year-old niece, Emma, Molly is anxious to begin redecorating the tasting room of Carla Jessop's winery, Bello Lago. But when Carla's abusive husband, Todd, is shot dead just as he's about to confront Molly at a party at Bello Lago, Molly becomes a suspect in Todd's murder, along with her beau, Carmel police chief Kenneth Randall. Once again, Molly delves at considerable personal risk into a homicide case. Full of interesting antiques lore, this expertly plotted whodunit is a must-read for cozy fans. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed June 11, 2007) (Publishers Weekly, vol 254, issue 24, p41)
  • In her fourth outing, antiques shop manager Molly Doyle (Deadly Collection ) branches out as an interior design consultant, redesigning the tasting area of the Mattucci family's prestigious winery. But she becomes a prime suspect when her client's husband is shot dead at a family dinner. Antiques dealer Flinn uses her insider knowledge to add authenticity and verisimilitude to her tale. Mix in well-placed clues, spot-on pacing, and friendly characters, and mystery patrons will have a cozy to savor. --Jo Ann Vicarel (Reviewed August 15, 2007) (Library Journal, vol 132, issue 13, p56)
