installment in Barbara Early’s Vintage Toy Shop mysteries.
It’s all fun and games with toyshop owner Liz McCall
until deadly secrets are unwrapped upon the eve of the
Who knew? Liz McCall is not thrilled when her boyfriend
Police Chief Ken Young introduces her to his estranged wife
Marya. The model-quality Russian immigrant, back in East
Aurora to rekindle their romance, will be working as a
hairstylist at the barber shop next door to Well Played, the
toyshop Liz manages for her dad. When Marya offers to help
with the shop’s doll rehab project, Liz can’t help but offer
up only a weak smile, but her secret hesitations are for
naught when Marya’s body is discovered in the barber shop
with a hair dryer cord wrapped around her neck.
Liz’s dad, retired from the police force, is asked to
investigate since Ken is the prime suspect.The whole town is
abuzz with the scandal and Liz has a few questions of her
own, wanting nothing more than to forget the loud argument
she overheard between Marya and Ken the night before. There
could have been other motives… Was Marya going to cut into a
competing hairstylist business? Who is the bumbling private
investigator hanging around and why won’t he explain himself?
All eyes are on Liz, including those of an odd matryoshka
doll in the shop which seems to move of its own accord, to
unravel this entertaining riddle, wrapped in a mystery,
inside an enigma that is Death of a Russian Doll, the
third jolly Vintage Toy Shop mystery from Barbara Early.
