Praise for the national bestselling 

Book Collector Mysteries

 

 

“A courageous heroine…a pleasing puzzle.”

—Richmond Times-Dispatch

 

 

Victoria Abbott is...

 Victoria Abbott is a collaboration between the always very funny and creative artist, photographer and short story author, Victoria Maffini and her mother, Mary Jane Maffini, award-winning author of three mystery series and two dozen short stories. Mary Jane's two miniature dachshunds are understandably outraged that a pug and some Siamese cats have wiggled their way into the series, and now a pug has weasled her way into Victoria's home.  The indignity of it all.

A bit about our latest book...

“If you haven't discovered this series yet and love cozy mysteries with a book theme, I highly encourage you to do so. I haven't read a book in this series yet that wasn't fun and a thrill ride.”—Girl Lost in a Book

 

As Thanksgiving approaches, Jordan Bingham is grateful for her job researching rare books for Vera Van Alst, the infamous curmudgeon of Harrison Falls, New York. But when an uninvited guest makes an appearance, much more than dinner is disrupted--and Jordan is thankful just to be alive... Vera Van Alst doesn't normally receive visitors without appointment, but she agrees to see the imperious Muriel Delgado upon arrival. Shortly thereafter, Jordan is told that her position is being terminated. Evicted from the Van Alst House, Jordan is determined to find out what hold Muriel has over her erstwhile employer. It seems Muriel has designs on Vera's money and property--not to mention a particular interest in her collection of Nero Wolfe first editions. When Jordan discovers a deadly connection between Muriel and the Van Alst family, it's up to her to put the house in order and stop a killer from going back to press.
   

With old manuscripts and new murderers, the world of collectibles will never be the same. Already one of my favorite series!

"With a full inventory of suspects, a courageous heroine and a tribute to a famous writer of 
whodunits, “The Christie Curse” will tempt her legion of devotees. Even mystery lovers who 
have never read Christie — if any exist — will find a pleasing puzzle in Abbott’s opener."
