A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes-Great Escapes Tour

About the book 
As the new music box store owner and resident of Keepsake Cove, a quaint town full of collectible shops on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Callie Reed is eager to get more involved in her community. She volunteers to plan the Fall street decorations and welcome a visiting author who’s come for a special book signing. But the celebratory mood is cut short when the local B&B owner is found dead, killed by a pair of vintage scissors.
Suspicion is cast on the victim’s estranged wife, Dorothy, who owns Keepsake Cove’s vintage sewing shop. Callie is sure Dorothy is innocent, and the visiting author agrees. Together, they begin their own investigation, only to discover that many people in Keepsake Cove have secrets. Secrets that are worth killing to keep quiet.
And others are saying
A Vintage death a pleasing cozy mystery that with its quaint town, charming shops and friendly characters.
~The Avid Reader
The mix of town life, the shops, and murder flows smoothly making for an enjoyable story with a touch of charm. Great for fans of cozies.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
Like knotted thread, unraveling the true truth wasn’t an easy task. But author Hughes expertly ties everything together in a reveal that had me riveted to my seat . . . I give A VINTAGE DEATH 5 out of 5 stars. Heck, I give it 10 out of 5 stars!
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
History, deceit and betrayal all are behind the scenes as Callie attempts to solve one murder while trying to become more involved in community activities. A second murder is so not what this town needs!
~Laura’s Interests

A Vintage Death was a delightfully entertaining mystery and I wanted to visit Callie’s shop so I could pick out my own music box. Callie is a fun, smart heroine and I absolutely loved her amazing personality.
~Moonlight Rendezvous
The mystery had a lot of characters – and potential suspects. I am an avid mystery reader but did not solve this one before Callie did! I enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot.
~View from the Birdhouse
The descriptive writing of the author pulled me into the story from the very beginning and pulled me along for a great read.
~MJB Reviewers
If you’d like to relax with a heartwarming traditional cozy mystery, A Vintage Death is a great choice. It has that perfect blend of enchanting setting, characters that you enjoy spending time with, and a well-crafted mystery.
~The Power of Words
Even in a delightful and scenic lloction like Keepsake Cove, Maryland, human greed, cupidity, and anger still flourish.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
And I thought
A fun and cozy read that will draw you in making you wish you were there.  Well at least until there's another murder in town and hidden secrets are exposed.  
Is this a cozy little town or not?  
The read will journey along with Callie as she tries to settle in and 
enjoy her inheritance and become a member of this sweet and cozy town.  But murder follows murder and we are once again on a twisty ride to discover the truth and clear the name of a sweet woman.  
Mary Ellen Hughes in this 2nd installment of the A keepsake Cove
