1.0 out of 5 starsAmateur writing
Reviewed in the United States on April 16, 2019
Main character was rude-wanted to ignore leash laws-sizes people up by what nationality they might be-not likable at all. Once again "going to solve it by herself"-a theme of some ( a lot) cozies. Won't read another one-doubt I will finish this one.
Love this book. Go on a trip and escape into a fun mystery with some real unique characters in a quaint sea-side town with a cookie baking grandma, and the granny gang that ride in tricked out golf carts. This story has many twists and turns so if you are trying to figure out whodunit, good luck. This book is great for the younger readers as well. It is totally devoid of bad language and anything off color. Enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 starsMurder, a family feud, a treasure map-life is more interesting in Wallace Point than the city

Something about this cover (ok the cute dogs) really spoke to me when I bought this book, and I liked the Whodunit part of the title. I was definitely not disappointed! It was fun, funny and had a sweet, heartwarming outcome.
Grandma and Abigail made such a cute sleuthing duo! They were never really in any danger and since the sheriff was sweet on Grandma, he sometimes released little nuggets of information to them. Abigail was quickly finding out that this town was a lot more interesting than her dull insurance job back in Boston, especially when the murder may have had something to do with a treasure map.
I really loved this little town and its assortment of characters. Sally's dad was a hoot, Sally would be a great best friend to have, and Abigail even met a sweet guy who after all was said and done, decided to follow his dream. I'm really anxious now for more in this series! Thor was such an adorable-sounding Great Dane. His howls and sounds he made were like conversation, even though Grandma's little Shih Tzu Missy was not impressed by him. Can't wait for the next book!
Abigail discovers the grandmother she never knew when her mother calls and tells her to go out of town to the hospital where her grandmother has been taken. She and her dog Thor arrive and find her grandmother in a medical induced coma. Her grandmother's friend Sally takes her to the Antique store and home of her grandmother. Once her grandmother is home, she stays to help her and finds out someone has broken into the store and someone is dead. She is curious about the large pirate looking ship in the harbor and this leads to a series of events surrounding the ship in a bottle her grandmother has in her store, except the bottle has been broken and the ship replaced in its case. Mystery after mystery follows. What secrets does the ship hold and which ship holds them.
I love small town mysteries, so many quirky characters. Grandma was wonderful along with her famous cookies! The mystery story, was unique and so well written. I definitely didn’t guess the ending, which is the best. It’s always terrible to know the ending by the middle of the story. I’m looking forward to reading the next installment of the Whodonit Antiques Mystery!
I loved this book but I won’t be following the series. I get the audible edition with most of the books so I can listen in my car. I really did not liKe the narrator. She drove me crazy with the way she read and put emphasis on phrases. Her voices weren’t very good, either; most of them sounded the same. I’m disappointed because I love sequels and this one seemed like it would be good! Oh well...
Short chapters, quick read. I like that for bedtime reading. I don’t think I am a huge Abigail fan , though I liked Thor. I liked her grandmother most of the time, but not Missy. I don’t think the was enough information given for me to understand her mother, who also was not a sympathetic character. I didn’t find many characters I was rooting for.
