What a delight to settle into book six in the Ellie Avery Mystery series. In this outing, the Avery family is off to Mitch Avery's home town for a family visit. The quiet visit quickly diminishes when Mitch's grandfather is found dead just before their arrival. While the family is reeling from his death, Ellie suspects that there is more than meets the eye going on. And what is cousin-in-law Felicity up to what with sneaking into Grandpa Franklin's house and pilfering his belongings? Ellie's desire to investigate Grandpa Franklin's death is causing friction between her and Mitch. Mitch would rather keep family business in the family. Of course, with murders, fires and breaks-in you cannot keep it from the police so they do become involved. The story revolves around greed but not in the way you would think! Great writing, characters, story-telling and an interesting plot.

I just love Ellie Avery's organizing tips that are included in the book. In this outing the tips were Ellie Avery's Tips for Preserving Family Treasures. There are lots of helpful tips and they are located at the end of many of the chapters. There are excellent tips on unusual ways to preserve and organize artwork such as what to do with oversize items, changing the format and creating new art from old. There were also tips to help with genealogy which are of particular interest to me.

I absolutely recommend this wonderful cozy mystery. Pick it up next week when it goes on sale!
