Murder Go Round by Carol J. Perry

Lee's aunt is in her sixties but she hasn't slowed down a bit.  She wants to bid on the contents of a storage shed.  They decide to invest up to $500, half and half.  They've never done this before but they know that you can find treasures in the boxes you can't open.  You can also find a lot of junk.  What they find puts a murderer on their trail...

Kensington Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 31st.

This was a very interesting mystery.  There's old Russian history, a former KGB agent involved, a chef involved and more.  Lee becomes interesting in what's going on when she takes the horse from an old carousel to be repainted and brought back to glory.  That was her treasure from the storage unit.  But when someone takes her horse apart in the shop and a man gets killed right outside it, she knows she's just stepped into trouble.

They know where the goods in the storage locker where originally kept.  When they visit there, the find out about the old Russian that lived there and his daughter.  What secret were they keeping?

With Pete's help (and his advice to not get involved), she and her aunt start searching.  Lee has visions and can see the future or the past.  She'd really rather not see either but it helps during this case.  Even her cat helps.  There are crazy people, greedy people, and just plain misguided people involved in this adventure.  I'm happy to report they all live through it and it's a charming cozy mystery that is a joy to read.  I'm going to read more in this series.  It's a good one.
