REVIEW: LOOK BOTH WAYS by Carol J. Perry
[WITCH CITY MYSTERY #3]
At once both intriguing and engrossing, LOOK BOTH WAYS is third in the exciting WITCH CITY MYSTERY series, set in that most magical and mysterious community, historic Salem. Massachusetts. After ten years in television, Lee Barrett has returned to her childhood home, a recently renovated Victorian, to reside with her reference librarian aunt. Synchronicity leads Lee to locate and purchase a rare antique bureau seemingly identical to hers, lost when the upper stories of the home burned. This bureau also contains cleverly concealed compartments, and had been owned by a woman allegedly murdered by her husband. Lee has barely installed her new bureau, when she discovers the shopowner murdered, and the race is in for intrepid Lee to discover the murderer' s identity before the killer can silence Lee permanently.
In Salem, Massachusetts, there are secret everywhere--even in the furniture. . .
When Lee Barrett spots the same style oak bureau she once had as a child on the WICH-TV show, Shopping Salem, she rushes to the antiques shop and buys the piece. Just like the beloved bureau she lost in a fire, this one has secret compartments. It also comes with an intriguing history--it was purchased in an estate sale from a home where a famous local murder took place.
The day after the bureau is delivered, Lee returns to the antiques shop and finds the owner dead. The police suspect the shop owner's unscrupulous business partner, but Lee wonders if the murder is connected to her new furniture. At least part of the answer may be revealed through a mirror in the bureau, tarnished and blackened, allowing Lee to tap into her psychic visions. Using this bureau of investigation, Lee may be able to furnish her policeman beau with the evidence needed to catch the killer--before the next one to be shut up is her. . .
