    The first book in the Keepsake series and a new author for me. I enjoyed the book but I found it hard to rate. It lacks one of the elements to be a cozy, no police involvement. It is not really a novel. There are suggestions of paranormal factors. The description of the areas will put ...

    3.5 stars Another book that grabbed me with its cover and title. As soon as I read the blurb, I knew I had to read it. The location was a plus too. I've been to Maryland's eastern Shore albeit a ling time ago and it's a location that I don't see often in books. Hughes did a good job...

    This is the first in a new series by Mary Ellen Hughes and I found it to be a very enjoyable read. It has a charming setting, likable characters and a good mystery. I liked that it was set in a quaint town where the keepsakes stores are all located in one section. I found Callie to be ...

    The first book in the Keepsake series and a new author for me. I enjoyed the book but I found it hard to rate. It lacks one of the elements to be a cozy, no police involvement. It is not really a novel. There are suggestions of paranormal factors. The description of the areas will put ...
