The Marsh Madness by Victoria Abbott

Books!! You know I love them, especially mysteries, and even more so, mysteries about books! Some people love books even more than I do though, rare books that is, enough to kill for them even! The Marsh Madness by Victoria Abbott is the forth part in the Book Collector Mystery series and it's a book you will want to collect!

From the back of the book:

The national bestselling author of The Wolfe Widow presents another spine-tingling mystery featuring rare book collector Jordan Bingham and some Ngaio Marsh first editions worth killing for…

Jordan works hard to improve Vera Van Alst’s collection of classic detective stories. So when Chadwick Kauffman—heir to the Kauffman fortune—offers a very good price on a fine collection of Ngaio Marsh first editions owned by his recently deceased stepfather, she is thrilled to meet with him at his fabled summer estate, Summerlea.

The next day, Jordan and Vera are shocked to read that Chadwick has died in a fall from the grand staircase at Summerlea. But when the picture in the paper is of a different man, it becomes clear that the ladies are victims of a scam. And they’ll have to unmask the imposter fast, because someone is trying to frame them for murder…

My thoughts:

This is fast paced, edge of your seat mystery at it's finest! I am talking about page turning suspense that I read in one night because I was compelled to know what the next page held. For all of the rapt attention I gave this story, I was totally surprised at the end! 

The characters are fabulous and the style is so much fun to read. This is the kind of story that is just easy to fall into, easy to devour, and easy to love. There is just so much emotion and it is conveyed in a way that you can feel it.

Victoria Abbott is one of my favorites. If you haven't read her before, start here and start now! No matter where you start, you will be hooked and want to read them all.
