I have just finished reading another book from the Dolls to Die for Mystery series written by Deb Baker.
In Dolly Departed, doll restorer, Gretchen Birch, tries to solve the murder of Charlie Maize, owner of the dollhouse store, Mini Maize. There are very mysterious circumstances surrounding Charlie's death, and Gretchen is the one for the job of finding out what actually happened to her and why. She receives the help of her mother, Caroline Birch, doll restorer and author, and her aunt, Nina, as well as a few good friends. When the women start putting together the room boxes that Charlie had been working on and that were scattered all over the store at the time of Charlie's death, they come across some very interesting and disturbing clues. What really happened to Charlie?
I enjoyed Dolly Departed and intend to read the other novels in this series. I collect certain dolls myself, and reading a mystery series that revolves around one of my own hobbies makes the individual stories just that much more interesting for me. Deb Baker's writing style appeals to me, as do her characters. I hope she continues to write more novels in this series, as I enjoy following up on the continuing adventures of Gretchen and her fellow helpers in solving crimes.
