Donna Huston Murrayabout this book: When the Curator of Textiles at Winterthur Museum mentioned she didn't know of any decorative arts mysteries, I was intrigued. What if my amateur sleuth Ginger Barnes discovered her childhood babysitter "Uncle Wunk" on trial in federal court for passing off an oriental rug as a valuable antique? He couldn't possibly be guilty; he'd lectured young Gin on honesty way too often. And certainly the key witnesses died coincidentally convenient natural deaths...
Winterthur's Curator of Textiles gave me homework an inch and a half thick and LIE LIKE A RUG was the result. Even Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin got a wink.
"…a cleverly plotted mystery with an interesting story line and great characters. Murray keeps readers guessing all the way to the end, with twists and turns and red herrings. This engrossing page-turner is a must-read for any lover of cozy mysteries." 5 stars, Heather Stockard for READER'S FAVORITE
"This book is a delight. Solid research, entertaining characters and an involving mystery. I can't wait to read the rest of the series…" 5 stars, Angelia Sukala, NetGalley
