      C L Miller's The Antique Hunter's Guide to Murder is the start of your new favourite crime series, The Number One Ladies Detective Agency meets The Fellowship of the Puzzle Makers as written by Richard Osman. Freya, it’s down to you to finish what I started. . . Freya Lockwood has avoided the quaint English village in which she grew up for the last 20 years. That is until news arrives that Arthur Crockleford, antiques dealer and Freya’s estranged mentor, has died… and the circumstances seem suspicious. You will uncover a reservation, I implore you to attend. . .But when a letter from Arthur is delivered, sent just days before his death, and an ordinary pine chest concealing Arthur’s journals including reservations in her name are revealed, Freya finds herself sucked back into a life she’d sworn to leave behind. But beware, trust no-one. Your life depends on it. . . Joining forces with her eccentric Aunt Carole, Arthur’s staunch best friend, Freya follows both clues and her instincts to an old manor house for an ‘antiques enthusiasts weekend’. But not is all as it seems; the antiques are bad reproductions and the other guests are menacing and secretive. Can Freya and Carole solve the mystery surrounding the weekend before a killer strikes again?

      “Nostalgia is the bittersweet acceptance of all we were and what we’ll never be again.”

      In this charming debut, readers are transported into the fascinating realm of antiques. The story unfolds in a picturesque English village, where unexpected murder mysteries await.

      “Fear is a choice. Choose courage.”

      I quite enjoyed the niece-aunt team of amateur sleuths and felt as if I were unravelling the clues and mysteries with them. This book has the feel of a classic, old-school mystery.

      “Nostalgia is the bittersweet acceptance of all we were and what we’ll never be again.”

      What I enjoyed most:

      Aunt Carole: Aunt Carole, with her larger-than-life personality, steals the spotlight. Her wit and vibrancy make her an unforgettable character.
      Midlife Exploration: Freya, our unlikely heroine, grapples with a midlife identity crisis. Her journey adds depth and relatability to the narrative.
      Setting: The quaint English town provides an ideal backdrop for secrets, intrigue, and hidden treasures.
      Dual Timelines: The interplay between past and present mysteries keeps readers engaged.
      Arthur’s Wisdom: Arthur’s nuggets of wisdom at the start of each chapter lend a delightful touch.
      Cosy Atmosphere: Picture yourself curled up with this book on a wintry day, sipping tea under a warm blanket
      While brimming with potential, the book could benefit from additional editing and polishing. The ending tantalisingly hints at future sequels, leaving readers eager for more Freya and Aunt Carole adventures.

      “There is no greater thrill than finding what has been lost,”

      The Antique Hunter’s Guide to Murder” promises a fresh start to a cosy mystery series. Whether you’re an antique aficionado or a newcomer, this delightful tale invites you to unravel its secrets alongside our endearing sleuths.

      Note: You don’t need expertise in antiques to enjoy this captivating mystery!
