Wedding bells are ringing for Amy and Richard, but Amy has situated herself in the middle of an art forgery scandal. Going back decades but having ties to the present day, it involves friends of the bridal couple and perhaps even relatives. When an art dealer dies at a party in honor of the bridal couple, Amy is compelled to seek out the truth of it all. The story is an interesting one, as are the characters, and the writing is good as well, but details about the wedding tend to drag down the story. And the components about the less-than-honest art dealers and the art forgeries got to be a bit much, trying to keep it all straight. Was it a story about the wedding? Or about art dealers? Oh, wait - there was a murder! That incident seemed to get lost in the shuffle. Readers will likely figure out who the real bad guy is long before Amy does, but then, her mind is on her wedding. It will be interesting to see what happens next in this series, but I can only hope the plot focuses more on solving a murder and less on weddings and art forgeries. ( )

A Deadly Edition by Victoria Gilbert has Amy Webber just four weeks away from her wedding to Richard Muir when they stumble upon a dead art dealer in Taylorsford, Virginia. Oscar Selvaggio was a rival of their friend, Kurt Kendrick. They both were after the very rare Kelmscott Chaucer. When Kurt becomes a prime suspect, Amy works to clear his name. A Deadly Edition has mystery, romance, intrigue, and humor. I thought A Deadly Edition was well-written with a multifaceted plot. There is quite a bit going on in this cozy mystery. In addition to Amy and Richard finishing the last-minute preparations for their upcoming nuptials, they both must continue working at their jobs. They also have Amy’s parents visiting for a few days and her brother has decided to stay in town until the wedding in four weeks. This is unusual for her brother and Amy is curious about his true reasons for being in town. She wonders if his job is a front for something covert. A coveted manuscript is for sale and Kurt Kendrick wants it. Unfortunately, so do other people including Oscar Selvaggio. Oscar ends up murdered with Kurt at the top of Chief Deputy Brad Tucker’s suspect list. Amy decides to do a little research as well as some snooping (in between dress fittings and cake tastings). The mystery was complex which I just loved and I enjoyed the dramatic reveal. There was intrigue and drama which keeps the reader engaged. I enjoy a twisty whodunit. It depends upon the number of mysteries you have read on whether you solve this mystery before the reveal or not. The ending will have readers smiling. A Deadly Edition is the 5th novel in A Blue Ridge Library Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone, but a new reader may be a little confused at the very beginning until the background details are provided. A Deadly Edition is a captivating cozy mystery with a matchless manuscript, scrumptious cake flavors, a deceased art dealer, shifty suspects, an infuriating soon-to-be-in-law, and wedding wonder. ( )

A Deadly Edition is the fifth book in the A Blue Ridge Library Mystery series by Victoria Gilbert.

Amy and Richard’s wedding day is just days away, and they are looking forward to joining in holy matrimony. Amy is so happy to learn that her brother has arrived will be spending some time with the family.

The story starts with a pre-nuptial party at the home of Kurt Kendrick. When an uninvited guest, Oscar Selvaggio, arrives at the party, Amy can see the surprise and displeasure on Kendrick’s face. It’s learned that Selvaggio is also an art-dealer and that he Kendrick has had dealings in the past. And they are both currently vying for a rare and valuable book. The party is going well until it announced that Selvaggio had been found dead.

Amy realizes that she doesn’t have the time to get involved in solving a murder, but with her brother showing up on the suspect list and even though Kendrick isn’t a close friend, she doesn’t believe that he the killer. So, Amy, Richard, and Sunny will set out to find the killer.

I love this series. The books are well-written and plotted, and there were enough red herrings that kept me guessing until the end. Most of the characters from the previous books are back once again to offer Amy support. They are all well-developed and believable. I would like to be a resident of Taylorsford and call them my friends.

I will be watching for the next book in this enjoyable series. ( )

Amy Webber and Richard Muir are finally getting married. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but on this evening they're just going to enjoy themselves. Kurt Kendrick, the enigmatic man who's become their friend, is hosting an engagement party at his home. Unfortunately, an unannounced person has shown up at Kurt's door, and since Kurt knows him, Oscar Selvaggio has become a guest, but not a very nice one.

It seems both Kurt and Oscar are vying to purchase a rare book from William Morris's Kelmscott Press, and although Amy can tell there is tension between them, she also sees other things which look suspicious, but tries not to be too distrustful because of the reason she's there. But when Selvaggio is found dead, and she later learns that he was poisoned, she wonders if the things she saw could be clues as to the murderer. While Kurt is high on the list, she refuses to believe that he killed Selvaggio. But that leaves a whole other set of suspects, and none of them are savory. Now Amy wants to find out who killed the man, and before her wedding...but will there ever be one?...

I have followed this series from the very first book, and I will tell you that while I wasn't impressed with that one, I am glad that I've stuck with this series. I've enjoyed spending time with Amy and her family and friends; and watched her relationship with her next-door-neighbor Richard grow into love. It's been an interesting journey, and I certainly hope it will continue.

I have always been fascinated with Kurt Kendrick, who has a checkered past, is also fiercely protective of those he cares for. He is now a wealthy art dealer (among other things), and it is this mysteriousness of his which has drawn me to him in every book.

In this one, it is things from his past that have come back to him, and Amy wants to know what is going on. She's also concerned with the fact that her younger brother Scott, whom she rarely sees, is now in attendance for her wedding, but still keeping secrets from her. Then there's her Aunt Lydia's boyfriend Hugh, who still seems to be searching for evidence against Kurt about anything, and his new colleague Fred Nash, who seems to have taken up a liking for her best friend Sunny.

With so much swirling about her, it's a wonder she can keep anything quiet in her head. But Amy, being the intrepid person that she is, isn't going to give up trying to solve the puzzle, and I do like the fact that she's careful and doesn't run around accusing everyone she meets of murder. I also like that fact that Richard accepts Amy for the person she is and doesn't hound her to stay out of the investigation, but he does, as is expected, tells her to be careful and not put herself in danger.

With so many questions about the people who are around her, Amy has the need to know what's happening and is surprised at what she discovers but yet knows it isn't anything she can share easily; and I do like that this time out she's changing in her feelings toward Kurt (whom, as I've stated before, is the best character in the series).

When the murderer is discovered, the motive for the murder is discovered, and of course we have a climax that was to be expected, and worth reading all the while. In the end, everything comes together flawlessly; it makes for a highly satisfying ending that makes us long for the next in the series. Recommended. ( )

This fifth book in the Blue Ridge Library cozy mystery series is, once again, a solid installment in the series, which features Amy Webber, small town library director who is planning her upcoming wedding.

I love this series for the interesting plots and the terrific cast of supporting characters.

A wonderfully done cozy which I'd definitely recommend.

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.} ( )
