Publisher's Summary

At The Society for the Preservation of Pennsylvania Antiques, fundraiser Eleanor "Nell" Pratt solicits donations - and sometimes solves crimes. When a collection of George Washington's letters is lost on the same day that an archivist is found dead, it seems strange that the Society president isn't pushing for an investigation. Nell goes digging herself, and soon uncovers a long, rich history of crime.

Not Sure About This Series

I found the museum setting interesting. The story made me aware of the difficulties in
the safe keeping of thousands of items, some of which have great monetary value. It also made me aware of how difficult it is to fund a non-profit museum.

I like Eleanor Pratt, the main character. She's smart and sensible. I'm also intrigued by "Marty", another female character who plays a major role in this story.

One criticism is that I correctly guessed the outcome early in the story. I won't go into detail to avoid "spoilers". There was also one element of the plot that seemed pointless to me - again I won't elaborate because of possible "spoilers."

I'm undecided about whether I will read other books in this series. I will put it on my "wish list" and carefully check reviews posted by other listeners.

Good First Book in a Series

Would you listen to Fundraising the Dead again? Why?

Perhaps. Since I'm a Philadelphia museum fundraiser myself, I really enjoyed the inside jokes and details that might be a bit tedious to others.

If you’ve listened to books by Sheila Connolly before, how does this one compare?

This was my first.

Have you listened to any of Robin Miles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really, though I think that it COULD be listened to in one sitting. It's not overly complex (even formulaic at times), but it's a fun, light read.
