Typical ex-FBI agent turned into something else. So to give it one more turn of the screw he has an agoraphobic wife. Really? Total suspension of incredulity crasher....

This was quite a nice little surprise. I chose this as my audio read to balance the heavier pschycological and fantasy reads I am doing: [A Circle of Souls], [Spellbinder], and even [The Christmas Cookie Club] are all pretty meaty for me.

Anyway this delightful little cozy tells the story of an auction of the Empress Josephine's tea cabaret. I had no idea until I read this that a 'cabaret' is a tea set...and what a specimen this one was.

Our antique dealer Jeff Talbott, a 'retired' FBI agent, finds himself on Mackinaw Island in Michigan at a weekend auction when his rival 'picker' and then the auctioneer are found dead.

The supporting cast includes a rich couple who love to dress up, a trio of loony ladies from the South, a stuffy hotel staff, and the local police department who are all too happy to have a 'fed' solve the murders for them.....they haven't had one in almost 50 years!

It was a fun audio, well plotted, and a little deeper than I expected. I'm going to look for more in the series. ( )

"A deft blend of mystery [and] mayhem." (Harlan Coben)
