Whether the well-traveled and well-heeled couple who once owned Wynderly could have been trafficking in fakes is what Sterling must unravel from the secret rooms, hidden treasures, uncovered diaries, and convoluted trail of paperwork and provenance. As our sharp-witted heroine sifts through details doled out by the museum's curators, board members, and the town's local residents, she discovers that objects, unlike people, do not lie.
The Big Steal is a delightful mystery that enhances readers' antiques acumen and provides an easy guide to identifying the most popular styles and periods in an illustrated appendix.
About the Author
Praise For The Big Steal…
An "intriguing second mystery." –Publishers Weekly
In The Big Steal, "real-life antiques appraiser Jenkins again imbues her sleuth, Sterling Glass, with knowledge and curiosity in equal parts, making this story as informative as it layered...The mystery is thoroughly involving, but the real fun is the characters: both Sterling and the supporting cast are well drawn and engaging...If you like light and breezy (but not silly), this one's for you." —Booklist starred review
