"The autumn foliage is in full fiery glory on a beautiful day in the little town of Rocky Point, nestled comfortably on the New Hampshire coastline. Josie Prescott is busy preparing for the weekly tag sale at her antiques and appraisals shop when she receives an exciting call--she's been asked to appraise Guy Whitestone's world-famous marine art and artifact collection. Josie jumps at the rare opportunity to examine nearly priceless objects in a spectacular setting, the renovated lighthouse owned by the Whitestones, Rocky Point Light. When Josie arrives at the famous financier's lighthouse, she's horrified to discover the bludgeoned body of Frankie, the beloved nephew of her friend and neighbor Zoe..."--dust jacket flap.

I do love these mysteries. Josie Prescott is such a good main character... and we lose and add characters here that are worthy of reading about!

Another great Josie Prescott novel. I learned a lot about sailor art work.

Good series, but not necessarily the most impressive installment.

This book taught me a new word: scrimshander. I won't tell you what it means, but the setting should make it obvious.
As for the story, as usual Josie gets herself into a pickle, although when things get deadly, she is not the target, but she is in the same room.
