Abigail Timberlake Washburn would rather be anywhere else on a muggy Charleston summer evening -- even putting in extra hours at her antiques shop -- than at a séance. But her best friend, "Calamity Jane," thinks a spirit -- or "Apparition American," as ectoplasmically-correct Abby puts it -- lurks in the eighteenth-century Georgian mansion, complete with priceless, sevent ...more

This is a good example of a cozy mystery appropriate for any audience. The reader has done a wonderful job of creating the Charleston 'southern' culture and setting, and the eccentric circle of family and friends who are swept up in the mystery when a murder occurs in an 18th century house. The amateur sleuth is a bit unusual in that she is middle aged and has a delightful 'voice' as she goes through her interviews of those who were present at the time of the murder.

Is she ragging other cozy mystery authors? For shame! Haha.

Wynnell is missing from this book.

Interesting mystery. I didn't guess who or even why. I did like the story, though. It's interesting seeing the storylines unfold as everyone migrates to the coastal regions of S Carolina.

This series and the Penn Dutch mysteries are very silly but they are quick fun reads for a mindless day! Certainly not classics, but funny! The Den of Antiquity heroine is an antiques dealer and the penn dutch one is a mennonite bed and breakfast owner.
"I had no idea where I was, but it was as dark as a stack of black cats."

I'm a sucker for mysteries set in the South. Especially in South Carolina.

I got this because it is set in Charleston- but was sadly disappointed. It is set here, but doesn't capture the vibrancy of *my* Charleston.

Tamar Myers was born and raised in the Belgian Congo (now just the Congo). Her parents were missionaries to a tribe which, at that time, were known as headhunters and used human skulls for drinking cups. Hers was the first white family ever to peacefully coexist with the tribe, and Tamar grew up fluent in the local trade language. Because of her pale blue eyes, Tamar’s nickname was Ugly Eyes.
