I was glad to get to visit Undiscovered Treasures again, and this time through Toby’s eyes. One of my favorite pastimes is to browse and hopefully find some treasure from antique stores like Toby and Caro’s store. While Caro is on her honeymoon, brother Toby is completely in charge of the store. He is a lighthearted fellow who is trying not to get tied down in the matrimonial department, or at least he doesn’t think he wants to.
Toby’s Troubles is an apt name for this story as he has plenty of them. From a “ghost” that keeps visiting his shop in all hours of the night, to the break-ins of his friend Amy’s shop, to bidding wars on property and antiques, and to top it all off he is trying to direct the town’s annual play. So besides dealing with less than stellar actors, shady characters and visitors from out of town, he is also running from his feelings he insists that he does not have for Amy.
I enjoyed this cozy mystery and even though Toby was often a comical guy, when Amy’s life is jeopardized he certainly steps in and up to be her hero. I am looking forward to Ryle’s story next.
I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions are my own.
