Series fans and newcomers alike will enjoy Cleland's eighth cozy featuring antique dealer Josie Prescott (after 2012's Dolled Up for Murder). Josie and her boyfriend, Ty, are pleased to become friends of two new residents of Rocky Point, N.H., Leigh Ann and Henri Dubois-the proprietors of an interior design store. At an auction of abandoned storage units, Josie and the Duboises make some exciting finds in the units they each purchase. Henri gives some silent movie posters from his unit to Josie for her appraisal, since these collectibles are closer to her area of expertise than his. The next day, Leigh Ann phones Josie to say that Henri is missing. When Henri is found dead in his storage unit, Josie once again turns sleuth. Ample antique lore and credible characters bolster an intriguing plot. Agent: Cristina Concepcion, Don Congdon Associates. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
