New Hope, PA is the setting of this, the 7th book in the Samantha Jamison Mystery series. Samantha and her boyfriend, Clay, are in New Hope to help Clay’s friends manage their art gallery business. Clay may even purchase the business if he likes it. But no sooner do they hit town and strangers are coming up to them asking for refunds and hinting around about fraudulent sales of artwork. When Samantha’s senior citizen posse arrives to help out, things get really serious. Questions start popping up everywhere. Is Anne, the art restorer, creating forgeries in her spare time? Is there a mob connection to all the treats being made to Samantha and her posse? Who locked them all in the garage, and will they be able to get out?!?
Ms. Edelheit spins a twisty tale of lies and deception in this little mystery. I had a lot of fun with all the quirky characters and the storyline was quite charming. This is the 7th in a series but the story was also good on its own. There is enough backstory given so that you don’t feel lost. The story moves at a quick pace which made it a fast and enjoyable read.
This book would be appropriate for teens and up and mystery lovers should really enjoy it. Alinefromabook gives “No Hope in New Hope” a THUMBS-UP recommendation.
