Antique Magic, is the first in a series about Alicia Trent. She owns an antique store in Scottsdale, Arizona, and has a knack of getting involved with mystery and murder in fascinating environments. Occasionally a little magic occurs.
Ali is in the antique business. The opportunity to finally be able to go through Mrs. Halls stacks and stacks of antiques arises after Mrs. Halls death. Ali’s excited and gets straight to work sorting and pricing the antiques. In the process she tries to find out why Mrs. Hall collected so much. Instead what she stumbles upon might mean Mrs. Hall could have been murdered.
It all starts with Ali finding a list of names, including Ali’s, and a note at the bottom stating Mrs. Hall couldn’t figure out who the betrayer is…
This was a fun book to read and I can honestly say the author kept my guessing who the bad guy was. I was happily surprised when I found out.
