Publisher's Summary

Molly Appleby is a young writer for Collector's Weekly, and when the attractive reporter isn't covering auctions and antique shows all over the South, she's trying to get her new relationship with a coworker off the ground. When her latest assignment takes her to North Carolina pottery country to cover an exclusive kiln opening, she's certain that the show promises surprising offerings and rare finds. What she doesn't expect to find is a dead body.
George-Bradley Staunton is known throughout the antiques world as a very wealthy and very ruthless collector, and when he drops dead just after the opening, there are all too few mourners and a seemingly endless list of suspects. When the local police are stumped, Molly steps in to put her journalist's nose to work sniffing out the culprit. But no sooner does she start collecting clues than another dead body falls into her lap. As Molly digs beneath the genteel surface of antiques and collectibles, she finds a world filled with backstabbing and competition, and what started as a story about rare collections might leave Molly with nothing more than a collection of corpses.

New pot? No, sorry, just a dead body!

Ellery Adams writes fun cozy mysteries. I find they are well researched, lots of detail, but not so much that the story slows down. Andi Arndt, one of my favorite narrators, takes on this mystery with the voice that matches the age of the leading character. I usually listen to her in tandem with a male voice reading contemporary rom/coms, so this is a departure for me and it took me a few chapters to adjust. (I know, it's just me.. not Andi).

The story is complex, multiple characters, all well developed. A good mystery, as predicted since the story teller is Ellery Adams. I liked it. I am a fan of cozy mysteries and will recommend this book and series.

I have downloaded book #2.

Clay and revenge

This book was so interesting. I have a love of ceramics and pottery. So learning about the potter's techniques and the collector's auction was fun. And a good murder mystery thrown in to the mix was great!
