Fundraising the Dead: A Museum Mystery | [Sheila Connolly]

Fundraising the Dead: A Museum Mystery

At The Society for the Preservation of Pennsylvania Antiques, fundraiser Eleanor "Nell" Pratt solicits donations - and sometimes solves crimes. When a collection of George Washington's letters is lost on the same day that an archivist is found dead, it seems strange that the Society president isn't pushing for an investigation. Nell goes digging herself, and soon uncovers a long, rich history of crime.

    Story
    "Good"

    This was basically a good mystery. Sometimes the pace was slow, but overall it went along nicely. The author does a good job crafting her characters and I look forward to following the series and seeing how they evolve. At times I found the precise diction of the narrator distracting and over done. I do not know if this is how people felt the narrator should speak further developing the character or if this is a quirk of the narrator.

    Story
    "Not Sure About This Series"

    I found the museum setting interesting. The story made me aware of the difficulties in
    the safe keeping of thousands of items, some of which have great monetary value. It also made me aware of how difficult it is to fund a non-profit museum.

    I like Eleanor Pratt, the main character. She's smart and sensible. I'm also intrigued by "Marty", another female character who plays a major role in this story.

    One criticism is that I correctly guessed the outcome early in the story. I won't go into detail to avoid "spoilers". There was also one element of the plot that seemed pointless to me - again I won't elaborate because of possible "spoilers."

    I'm undecided about whether I will read other books in this series. I will put it on my "wish list" and carefully check reviews posted by other listeners.
