Review: The Wolfe Widow by Victoria Abbott

Title: THE WOLFE WIDOW
Author: VICTORIA ABBOTT
(A Book Collector Mystery Series)
Hardcover Library Book)

A rare moment occurred someone dared knock on Vera Van Alst's front door. She doesn't receive visitors, Muriel Delgado wasn't to be turned away which is what Jordan Bingham would loved to have done. Instead Vera's receives her and when the meeting is over Muriel is in and Jordan is fired. Tossed out and never to return.

This doesn't set well with Jordan and she wants to know why she was fired but more importantly why Muriel is there all moved and what she has on Vera but when Jordan is hit by a car while trying to investigate then she must rely on her uncles to help with the investigations.
Ten when Jordan finds out that Muriel is trying to sell off the Nero Wolfe Collection book by Jordan knows that Muriel is pure evil.
Vera would never allow this to happen as Vera's fondness for the books is sentimental. It's one of the rare things Vera and her father shared an she wouldn't part with one book of that collection.

Tim is running out and Jordan knows it's only a matter of time before Vera is met with an untimely death.

THE WOLFE WIDOW is priceless one of the best books in this series. Victoria Abbott really claims hr fame in this one!
************ I give it 12 stars out of 10, yes that's right the book and series is that good.

Upside Down Post:







Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.






This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?






1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.


2. Have a root canal


3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.


4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail


5. Dust


6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse


7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.


8. Shovel snow


9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.


10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.


Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
