While vacationing on Martha's Vineyard, Serena Jones becomes entangled in a suspicious death with ties to an international antiquities smuggling ring. Will she find the killer before another person dies?
Over Maya Dead Body by Sandra Orchard was a slight twist from the previous two books in the series. For one thing, it was something along the lines of a murder mystery along with the art caper. The other big difference was that Serena was on vacation and her time wasn’t split between her ‘shift husband’ and her ‘house husband’ as her mother called it, but was free game to the knights-in-shining-armor who rushed to her aid.
Lots of people complain about love triangles, but if they’re done right, they can be very interesting. As in emotional roller coasters as you hope against hope that the heroine will choose the one you’re shipping for. And Sandra Orchard definitely did a good job of showing that in this book!
Love triangle aside, the book also did a great job revealing a mystery like her previous two books, and the characters were quirky as ever. Another plus was that it was in no way preachy- but also didn’t leave out a slight spiritual thread.
Though the book might have been a bit abrupt near the end wrapping up, it was a very enjoyable read and I look forward to more Serena Jones mysteries.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Revell. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions are my own.
