Publisher Description

As Thanksgiving approaches, Jordan Bingham is grateful for her job researching rare books for Vera Van Alst, the infamous curmudgeon of Harrison Falls, New York. But when an uninvited guest makes an appearance, much more than dinner is disrupted—and Jordan is thankful just to be alive…
 
Vera Van Alst doesn’t normally receive visitors without appointment, but she agrees to see the imperious Muriel Delgado upon arrival. Shortly thereafter, Jordan is told that her position is being terminated. Evicted from the Van Alst House, Jordan is determined to find out what hold Muriel has over her erstwhile employer.
 
It seems Muriel has designs on Vera’s money and property—not to mention a particular interest in her collection of Nero Wolfe first editions. When Jordan discovers a deadly connection between Muriel and the Van Alst family, it’s up to her to put the house in order and stop a killer from going back to press.

Nowis the time for someone to figure out the past to save the future

“Never be needy. It makes you vulnerable. If you really require help, turn to your family.“

In this, the third in the Victoria Abbot Book Collector series we find Jordan besotted with Nero Wolfe, also a favorite sleuth of her employer, Vera van Alst. It’s Vera’s collecting that keeps Jordan in her employ, along with Signoria and now, Jordan’s Uncle Kevin? Who knew he knows flowers and could help keep the grounds of the estate in working order?

And then, Muriel Delgado arrives and upsets everything from getting Jordan fired to forbidding Italian food and demanding the house get cable? And Vera is acquiescing to all of it? What’s this woman got on Vera? And who’s trying to kill people in the way, including Jordan?

Another stunningly fascinating mystery that is highly recommended. 5/5
