Would you enjoy a job where all you did was researching and dealing with rare old books – a job that provided a lovely place to live and tasty meals to dine on? That’s what author Victoria Abbott’s protagonist does and she loves it, well except for the getting fired, losing a place to life and no food part.
I’m sharing my thoughts today on this new release, the third installment in Victoria’s Book Collection Mystery series. In addition, thanks to the author and the lovely Danielle at Penguin Group, I have a copy of THE WOLFE WIDOW to giveaway. Please see the end of the post for more details.
THE WOLFE WIDOW by Victoria Abbott
Getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday, Jordan Bingham is happy with her job researching rare books for Vera Van Alst. Life is good until Jordan answers the door at dinner to the mysterious Muriel Delgado. Vera never sees anyone without an appointment, but she sees Muriel. Soon after Jordan is fired and told to leave the Van Alst House.
Jordan knows Muriel must have something on Vera for her to make all the sudden changes she’s making. Determined to find out what’s wrong before someone dies Jordan, channeling Archie Goodwin, sets out to find the truth.
Abbott blends humor with vintage Nero Wolfe to create a fascinating tale. The characters are likable and well-developed. The story moves smoothly and holds your attention until the end.
The third installment in Abbott’s Book Collector Mystery series, THE WOLFE WIDOW can be read on its own. An added bonus is several yummy recipes included at the end of the story.
Rare books, Nero Wolfe, crazy family and friends, and a gathering to expose a killer leads to an entertaining read you won’t be able to put down.
