Josie Giancola, owner of the Button Box shop, knows her buttons. But when she comes into contact with a rare charm string, she never imagines it will lead to murder...

Josie is approached at her shop to appraise a very rare item--a complete charm string. In Victorian times, girls strung buttons on long strings to make the charms. Once the string reached 1,000 buttons--no two alike--the legend was that the owner would meet her beloved.

But the owner of this charm string is not looking for love--she's desperate to donate the piece to a museum and be rid of it. She believes the string is far from charmed--it's cursed. When Josie finds the woman strangled with the charm string, she doesn't know whether the curse is real...but the killer certainly is.

Includes tips on antique button collecting

Praise for Button Holed:

“Absolutely terrific! I love it, and can't wait for the next installment in the series.”—New York Times bestselling author Diane Mott Davidson

“This is the opening act of an engaging amateur sleuth mystery series, and if this book is any indication, readers have a special and original new series to enjoy...with an entertaining plot and a strong cast led by a woman who refuses to be Button Holed.” —The Mystery Gazette

“[A] unique and fun adventure…fast-paced…a very different and very fun cozy series.” —
“This mystery was fun to read while still educating me about buttons. I also enjoyed Josie’s character—she’s fun, funny, and sharp…It was also nice to see someone embrace their ‘button nerd’ side.”—Fresh Fiction
