Murder on the Candlelight Tour - Ellen Elizabeth Hunter

Murder on the Candlelight Tour is the second novel in the Magnolia Mystery series. This book is $3.99 for the kindle. It was free when I downloaded it. It didn't suffer from being read out of sequence.

Ashley Wilkes is a historic preservationist. She was thrilled that her restored Victorian was the first house listed on the Olde Wilmington by Candlelight tour. That is, until someone was murdered in her library as the tour wound down. Now Ashley is trying to find the killer and the mystery behind the murder in her house. I really enjoyed this book, but there are some things I need to warn others about. This is one of those books where what color the stylish slacks are, or what designer created the shoes, or what interior decorating scheme was used, or what elegant cuisine was served, is as important to the author as who killed who. It's something that's worth putting up with for the mystery, but barely at times. If that's the kind of story you like, you'll be very pleased. Recommended.
