Murder by the Spoonful by Vicki Vass

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. 

Published: June 9, 2015
Number of pages: 258
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: An Antique Hunters Mystery #1

Anne Hillstrom is hunting antiques, a diet that works and her Great Aunt Sybil's killer. This book tells the story of Anne and CC, two estate sale bloggers and antique hunters, who get more than they bargain for when they discover a killer who is hunting the antique hunters.

What did I think of this book:
I was excited to jump into this new series as I enjoy mysteries and antiques so I thougt this would be a great mix and I was not disappointed. This was the first book I have read by this author and I have to say that I enjoyed her writing style and I look forward to more books in this series. I liked the way Anne and CC worked together not only hunting antiques but in solving the mystery. It was fun that there were two mysteries going on at once. There were so many twists and turns that I was not able to figure out who did it until the end of the book. I like that because it makes me want to read faster to see what happens next. Along with the mystery there is even a bit of humor, romance and friendships. In my opinion the author did a good job in her descriptions of the settings, character development and the story line in general. I think she is off to a good start for this series.
