Описание

Molly Appleby has promised her new husband that their honeymoon will be trouble-free-specifically, no sleuthing. Unfortunately, trouble seems to follow Molly wherever she goes, even to England.



After a glorious week in London, the newlyweds have escaped the city to visit Molly's great-aunt in the quaint English village of Marlow Crossing. The setting is idyllic, as beautiful and serene as Molly could hope for, but as the senior staff writer for Collector's Weekly knows, appearances can be deceiving. And when a local woman turns up poisoned to death, Molly's convinced there's more to the story than meets the eye.



Putting her honeymoon on hold, Molly agrees to help local inspector Devon Boyle with the case, especially since the sleepy village presents such a small number of suspects. But when two of them go missing and the tragic death of another woman comes to light, Molly realizes she's up against a much more sinister criminal than she thought. Untangling a web of lies and deceit as she searches for a motive and a murderer won't be easy, but Molly's determined to put all of her detective skills to use to catch a killer before her trip, and her life, are brought to a sudden end.

    Molly and Matt are on their honeymoon and are visiting her Great-Aunt Tessa in the small village of Marlow Crossing, England. Molly is introduced to her aunt’s neighbour, Tiffany, through her cat that spends as much time at Tessa’s house as Tiffany’s. When the Molly finds Tiffany dead, she wants to help find the murderer. Inspector Devon Boyle, who is nearing retirement, asks her to help, as he does not have the time or money to interview some of the friends and acquaintances who might have some information. With Matt heading home and Clara, Molly’s mom joining her, the investigation heats up.
    I really enjoy the dual storylines in these books. The origin of the eye miniature was very well integrated into the story and I was very intrigued with this part of the story. The mystery was also interesting and fast paced and I read this book very quickly. Molly again shows her intelligence and the wonderful way she interacts with others, especially when getting information out of them. I loved the setting of a small English Village and the characters that lived there. Another very solid mystery with a historical storyline as well. I am really enjoying this series and the turn it has taken with the addition of co-author Parker Riggs. I am looking forward to the next adventure in the life of Molly Applebee. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    This was a great cozy mystery!! While A Devious Lot is book five in the Antiques and Collectibles series by Ellery Adams, I was able to follow along right from the start. Molly Appleby is an American who writes for an antiques magazine. She and her husband are on their honeymoon in England. While she wants to stir clear of death or mayhem, they literally come meowing at her aunt's door. And Molly can't refuse the local Inspector who asks for her help.This novel is presented on two planes of reality. One is in 1850's England, where we meet Lillian Gilbert, who falls in love with Julius, but whose father insists she marry a much older, sinister and secret-keeping widower. The other plane, of course, is the present-day mystery Molly is trying to solve. The back and forth narrative was well done and added excitement to the tale.By definition, a cozy has quirky characters. Indeed, Adams and her coauthor Riggs have well-populated this book with that ilk. I love the aunt, Tessa. Warm, caring, friendly, everyone needs an aunt like her. Tiffany is what some would call a "piece of work." I loved the characterization of Brenda Adair, although I didn't like her, at all!!I really liked how the whole story came together at the end and think other readers will,too. I gratefully received this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    A Devious Lot by Ellery Adams and Parker Riggs is the fifth book in the Antiques and Collectibles Mysteries. Molly Appleby and her new husband, Matt Harrison are on their honeymoon. The couple spent some time in London and are now visiting Molly’s Aunt Tessa in Marlow Crossing, Cotswolds. Tessa Paulson is a retired teacher and lives in Foxcoat Cottage (I love how they name their names in England). Tessa introduces Molly and Matt to her friends and neighbors in the village. Tiffany Hadley’s returns White Dove Cottage nearby. She moved to the village from London to be near her boyfriend. Tiffany was given a beautiful eye miniature in brooch form from him. Unfortunately, they have now broken up and Giles, the former boyfriend, wants the brooch back. Giles Adair lives with his mother at Channing Hall. Giles runs Bits and Pieces, an antique store and already has a fiancé, Penelope Cassidy (he moves fast). One morning Gingersnap, Tiffany’s cat, shows up at Foxcoat Cottage and seems to want something. Molly follows him back to Tiffany’s house. Molly finds Tiffany dead in her dining room (you knew this was coming). Detective Inspector Devon Boyle is assigned the case. DI Boyle asks Molly to assist him with the investigation (you know Molly cannot resist an investigation). Matt has to head home (he has to get back to his residency program), Molly’s mother, Clara Appleby flies over to comfort Tessa (and help with the investigation). Then Penelope Cassidy turns up missing. Why was Tiffany killed and who wanted her out of the way? Did Penelope do her in? Join Molly on her investigation in A Devious Lot.A part of A Devious Lot is devoted to the story of the eye miniature brooch (ivory with amethyst and pearls). It takes us back in time (1851) to find out the history of this unique brooch. A Devious Lot is easy to read and the novel has a good pace. A Devious Lot, though, is better enjoyed if you have read the previous books in the series (in order to understand everything that is going on in the novel). A Devious Lot was not as gratifying as the earlier of books in the series. A Devious Lot is entertaining, but I thought the story went on a little too long (it really should be shortened to make it a better story). The mystery is easily solved (you know how Tiffany was killed as soon as Molly finds the body), but there is one thing that is surprising (I love twists). I give A Devious Lot 3.5 out of 5 stars. A Devious Lot had the same appealing characters as the previous books, but the writing style did not remind me of Ellery Adams (and I have read all of her books). I am not sure if I will read more books (if there are any) in this series, but I will definitely read Ms. Adams other novels.I received a complimentary copy of A Devious Lot from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the book.
