Virginia Wintersabout this book: Anne McPhail returns to Culver's Mills for a lovely family Christmas with Thomas Beauchamp. But his family rejects her and she flees to her friend Catherine's bed and breakfast. But on a lonely walk downtown she finds a dead body in an antique store. The owner is kidnapped and soon the killer is searching for Anne and the Faberge egg the killer thinks she possesses. Meanwhile, her relationship with Thomas goes downhill as she thinks he has broken his promise to her.
Writing this book took me to the world of the Russian Czars before and during the revolution that drove them from power and cost them their lives. Most of the lovely Faberge jewellery they commissioned was stolen or misplaced in the chaos of war, but some survived, including a few of the Easter eggs, gifts from the Czar to the Czarina. Read The Jewelled Egg Murders for more on this fascinating event.
Well written, with a host of characters that pull you in and make you feel you are part of the family. First read by this author however it will not be my last. MBH, Amazon customer
This is one book that will keep you busy on long winters night.
