Antique print dealer Maggie Summer is off to Waymouth, Maine, where her plans for relaxing with her boyfriend, Will Brewer, and visiting Will's Aunt Nettie get derailed. Enlisted to examine a recently discovered diary kept in 1890 by 18-year-old Anna May Pratt, who posed for Winslow Homer, Maggie inherits the diary after someone bashes in the head of its owner, Carolyn Chase, with a rolling pin. As Maggie once again turns amateur sleuth, she comes under pressure from locals who believe the diary could reveal long-kept secrets about the famous artist and his relationship to their community.

I thought the book was a nicely paced love story about an older couple with many of the same likes and dislikes. The gentleman had family obligations but in the end both characters realized that that is what really matters when bad things start to happen. I liked the antiquing aspect the writer brought to the story and will look up some of the illustrations she notes at the beginning of each chapter. All in all, I liked the story very much and would recommend it to someone who doesn't need a fast paced story where plot twists keep showing up just to try to make a lesser story better, which never does.

Plenty of action, although there is a lot of conversation, too. Just nudges my violence level.
