Just finished the third book in this series, and it sure didn’t disappoint, and can be read by its self, but you don’t want to miss the other two! Of course, bodies seem to follow our FBI agent Serena around, and going to Martha’s Vineyard is not exception for her, and this is sad for her family at the same time. You will be changing your mind as to who is involved from page to page, and just when you think you know for sure, guess what! There is a lot of action too, firebombs, break line cuts, gunshots, etc., better duck. Our girl ends up with both of the guys who have their eye on her, they come to be of help, but will she ever choose just one? They actually both sound perfect! Of course, darling Aunt Martha is here, and who does she not know? She is one amazing woman, and we are about to learn more about her, and she seems to have access to all kinds of help. I adored the epilogue at the end of the book, and maybe there will be another novel in the offing, we can hope! I received this book through Revell Publishing Book Bloggers Program, and was not required to give a positive review.

A great mystery that will keep you reading and guessing. I love seeing what Serena is up to next as she tries to take a break from the rigors of the FBI only to find herself caught up in a death tied to a smuggling ring. She finds herself more deeply involved than she plans and then to complicate things, she finds herself the romantic target of the men in her life and she has to juggle them, the case, and her initial reason for being at Martha's Vineyard the celebration of an engagement. A real page turner. I received a copy from the publisher, the review is my own.

This is such a fun series. I love this type of mystery. I love Serena but I do hope she figures out which guy is right for her. Some people just have a hard time taking a vacation. Serena must solve a case while on vacation because it is her fathers best friend. I love all the characters in this story. I especially like Serena, Aunt Martha and Nate. I received this book from Revell and the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
What cozy mystery woul...
What cozy mystery would be without its eccentric, little old lady, amateur sleuth? The Serena Jones mystery series has its in the form of Aunt Martha, Serena's aunt. While Serena is an FBI special agent in the art crimes division, her aunt becomes actively involved in all of her cases. Not only is she involved in solving crime, she is actively involved as Serena's matchmaker as well. In this third installment of the Serena Jones series, Serena is once again torn between putting aside romantic ideas and her interest in both her partner, Tanner, and her apartment superintendent, Nate, who has many and varied talents. I must admit to mentally yelling at her about halfway through this book, "Just choose already!" Serena had thought that a short vacation at Martha's Vineyard with her aunt and parents would be a relaxing time away. When no one showed up to pick them up from the Ferry's dock, the family took a taxi to the home of Serena's father's best friend whose engagement party they had come to attend only to find that he had died in a suspicious fall. Was it an accident? Was it related to a call he had placed to the FBI over antiquities smuggling, or was it related to the changes he was making to his will? Serena dove into solving the mystery as a way of dealing with her grief. Through unexpected circumstances, both Tanner and Nate ended up joining Serena and her investigation, both vying for her attention when she most needed to focus on the case at hand, and then there is always the "helpful" Aunt Martha. If you are looking for a lighthearted summer read, you have found your book! Over Maya Dead Body is a great travel read. I finished it at home in two days. I thank NetGalley and Revell Publishing for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I received no monetary compensation.
4.5 stars Heading out ...
4.5 stars Heading out for a wedding of a family friend, Serena Jones and her family discover the friend dead. Believing foul play in action, Serena races to catch a possible antiquities smuggler/murderer before he/her silences Serena and others. There is much to like in this 3rd Serena Jones installment. First, though, let me say it is important to read the books in order to get the full effect. The love triangle between Nate, Serena, and Tanner continues and takes some surprising turns. Orchard employed an unusual tactic in this series. She allowed readers to vote which beau Serena should eventually end up with...and had to change her own story to make that happen!(This is why the novel did not receive 5 stars from me- it did not seem as balanced between rivals as usual.) What an exhausting vacation Serena has! She deals with death and pursuing possible murderers. She fends off her matchmaking mother and aunt. Both Tanner and Nate come to help, yet entangle her confused heart. Plus Aunt Martha brings extra excitement, duplicity, and her own love triangle. Great book, yet I felt like the series was shut down abruptly. Sad it could only be three books. So much more action could happen.
