Maggie Mulgrew Mysteries
Welcome to Holmestead, England ~ where an American ex-pat, an archaeologist, and murder turn this small, picture postcard village upside down.
Maggie Mulgrew runs The Ash Leaf, an antique shop in the quaint village of Holmestead, England ~ which has nothing to do with Sherlock, thank you very much.
She sells her goods to disappointed tourists, and locals who appreciate her eclectic taste.
Professor Pembroke Martin is hunting down an artifact that had been stolen by a former assistant ~ a hand-blown apothecary jar that is the center of an old ghost story. His search leads him to Holmestead, and a stubborn, fascinating American who has acquired the box that once contained the rare jar.
When the missing jar turns up, clutched in the hand of the very dead local historian, Martin becomes the prime suspect. He and that dead historian were bitter rivals.
With his future on the line, Martin turns to Maggie for help, and they join forces to find the real killer.
Welcome back to Holmestead, England ~ where a mysterious book, a cryptic note, and murder shake up this picture postcard village.
When Maggie Mulgrew finds an old book in the box she buys from a local charity sale, she has no idea that her discovery is about to set off a chain of events.
Events that will end in murder.
Now she has to find out why a book is important enough to kill for, and fast, before someone else becomes a victim.
It’s Christmas in Holmestead, England ~ but all is not merry and bright.
Maggie Mulgrew has resigned herself to spending Christmas alone, since her love, Pembroke Martin, is neck deep in an important dig.
When he shows up, surprising her, she sees nothing but happiness headed her way.
She couldn’t be more wrong.
After a holiday play, she stumbles over the body of one of the actors. The Ghost of Christmas Past has been stabbed in the back, with a holly branch.
Now it’s up to Maggie and Martin to discover what happened, before they are all trapped by a coming snowstorm ~ along with the killer.
