$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Murder in New York-Dianne Harman Ends 3/10

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

New York City can be a travelers dream come true--so many places to see and things to do--many of them free! There are a couple of streets in NYC where you can browae antique stores-but beware before you buy--there are some that may not be totally legitimate!

Marty and her husband Jeff, a police detective traveled to NYC to see an Antique Auction featuring British Antiques. Marty, an art and antique appraiser living in Palm Springs, California really wanted to see this and maybe learn something. No one expected that the TV star who was going to be there to film this segment would be found murdered. Jeff happened to be friends with the NYC detective on the case--and they both ended up helping.

There really were a lot of suspects each of whom had reason to murder Alan Woolsham! You will never expect who finally gave Marty the clues and then helped them get the culprit!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Alan Woolsham was at the top of his game. He was an acclaimed television star in England and had come to New York to film four special TV shows dealing with British antiques. The shows were to be taped at the Whitney Museum, and Alan hoped to open up a whole new viewing audience for his wildly successful show. But things didn’t go as planned. Murder does have a way of changing things. So much for stardom in the States.

Marty and her husband, Jeff, were in New York City for what the hype promised to be a television and museum extravaganza about British antiques. Marty, an art and antique appraiser living in Palm Springs, California, had come to learn, but she hadn’t planned on the show’s presenter and the television idol, Alan, being murdered. Becoming involved in a murder case in New York was definitely not in her vacation plans.

However, when your husband’s a police detective, even if it is with a police department on the other side of the United States, you’re an expert in antiques, and Jeff knows the New York detective who’s in charge of the murder investigation, there’s no way Marty could have avoided getting involved.

A rabid fan, an unethical antique dealer, a jealous director, and an ambitious assistant are a lot of people with motives for murder. But finding out which one is the killer proves difficult. Even Barney the Beagle is called in to help.

Join Marty and Jeff as they try to solve the case while they take in the sights and great food of New York City!

I’ve never been to New York, sadly never been out of Ohio. My daughter really wants to go to New York.

When I was a child we drove through NYC on our way to Connecticut to visit relatives. I learned a lot of curse words from dad on that trip as he hated driving through the city. I would love to visit and would probably spend most of my time hitting up restaurants and food trucks.

I have visited upstate New York but not NYC yet but I sure want to.

Julie Waldron said...

I've been there twice and would LOVE to go back! I'd spend more time and the Ground Zero Memorial and I'd love to spend the day in Central Park. My daughter fulfilled her dream and got a hotdog from a hotdog vendor in Times Square. I'm not sure if I'd go back to Times Square, it was so crowded and there was a protest going on...kind of scary for these country girls. I also wouldn't go back to Macy's, it was so big and I almost got lost there. I'd love to go to a Broadway show.

My favorite place in NYC is Ellis Island. Two sets of my great-grandparents and their families (including my grandmother) came through there when they immigrated from Russia. I had their names included on the carved stone plaques on the island. I was able to take my own grandson there in 2017 and tell him our family stories.
