Statue of Limitations by Tamar Myers

11th Novel in the Series
Statue of Limitations by Tamar Myers is the 11th novel in the Den of Antiquity cozy mystery series. There are sixteen novels in the Den of Antiquity Series and at the present moment and I've now read thirteen of the sixteen novels in the series!! Three more novels left for me to read and I'll have finished reading the entire Den of Antiquity Series!! I have not read any of the books in order, except for the first novel in the Den of Antiquity Series, titled Larceny and Old Lace.

So, what did I think of Statue of Limitations?? Well, Statue of Limitations is kicked into high gear almost immediately with the murder of Marina Webbfingers occurring only a few chapters into the start of this cozy mystery novel. Abigail Timberlake Washburn's closest friend Wynnell Crawford is being charged with the murder of Marina Webbfingers. So, Abigail sets out to exonerate her best friend of this heinous crime. 

I enjoyed reading about how Abigail Timberlake Washburn goes about solving this crime and exonerating her best friend Wynnell Crawford. Tamar Myers is a witty writer that captivates her readers with her humor, fun characters, writing style and storyline. I did enjoy reading Statue of Limitations quite a bit... I did find that the ending of this novel ended rather abruptly or at least things were wrapped up to quickly for my tastes. So, my only two complaints about this particular novel is that the beginning started off to quickly and ending of it ended to quickly.

The following is a product review of Statue of Limitations I found on Barnes & Noble's website:
Abigail Timberlake Washburn, petite but feisty proprietor of Charleston's Den of Antiquity antiques shop, stopped speaking to best friend and temporary decorating partner Wynnell Crawford a month ago -- after questioning her choice of a cheap, three-foot-high replica of Michaelangelo's David to adorn the garden of a local bed-and-breakfast. But now Wynnell has broken the silence with one phone call ... from prison! It seems the b&b owner has been fatally beaned -- allegedly by the same tacky statue -- and Wynnell's been fingered by the cops for the bashing. But Abby suspects there's more to this well-sculpted slaying than initially meets the eye, and she wants to take a closer look at the not-so-bereaved widower and the two very odd couples presently guesting at the hostelry. Because if bad taste was a capital crime, Wynnell would be guilty as sin -- but she's certainly no killer!

I'm giving Statue of Limitations an 7 stars out 10 stars rating.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
