Shadows at the Spring Show (Antique Print #4) by Lea Wait

Shadows at the Spring Show (Antique Print, #4)
She's an antique print dealer, a college professor, and now...a parent? Maggie Summer is considering adopting a child from the New Jersey agency Our World, Our Children, and she has happily agreed to stage a benefit antiques show on their behalf. With her dealer friends, her college, and her lover, Will Brewer, all donating their time and support, everything is falling into place. But someone is harboring a vicious grudge against Our World, Our Children. The adoptive mother of thirteen children is the first victim, and then Maggie begins receiving threats. With the crowded benefit set to open and hundreds of innocent lives at stake, Maggie races to preserve the future with a clue hidden in her prints from the past....   (summary via Goodreads)

When you pick up Shadows at the Spring Show by Lea Wait, please be advised you will want to clear your immediate schedule.  Once you pick up this fourth book in her Antique Print Mystery series, you are not going to want to put it down !!

If you have read the previous books in this series, you cannot help but be a fan of Maggie Summer.  If you haven't read them and are picking up this book first, you are going to fall in love with her and put the previous books on your to read list.

In Shadows at the Spring Show Maggie is home trying to decide if she is ready to be a parent and is looking into adoption.  She is also very involved with Our World, Our Children, an adoption agency.  She is so involved with them that she is organizing a fund raiser for the agency......an antique show !!

Unfortunately when the organization and Maggie start to receive "hate mail", there is talk about cancelling the show.  Maggie does not want to back down and let the person or people behind the threats win but she has to think about the safety of all involved.......

Maggie has a unique talent of working things out no matter how busy she is and boy is she busy in this book !!!  It is nice to hang out with Maggie at the college and at home with her cat, Winslow, and see her organizing the show....we even get to see her "boyfriend" Will and friend Gussie.  And Lea Wait has that awesome knack of keeping the reader interested from the first word until the very last and all that adds up to is a HUGE win for the reader !!!!
