Mark Pine is a new watchmaker that Ruth hires for the shop and with four events to be held in the shop, an open house, a birthday party, New Years Eve and the official opening of the shop and trying to make her grandfather's dream of a town clock tower come true, Ruth had a lot on her plate. The night of the open house Ruth finds Mark Pine dead in her neighbor and friend, Ben's barbershop with an old pocket watch nearby. Ruth's step-grandmother who works in the shop has a passion for repairing watches and her and Ruth's relationship are on shaky ground, it is soon come to light her step-grandmother, Caroline has more secrets in her past that Ruth imagined.
Clock and dagger was one of those books that you can't wait to start and never want to end. I love clocks and watches, that is part of why I love the clock shop mysteries, clock and dagger has a premise you can't help but take the time to read and the other reason is Ruth and Caroline and the Cog and Sprocket and the other intriguing characters.
I love learning about the inner workings of clock and watch repair when Ruth was taking many notes in her note book and as the time ticks on while the murder is not solved Ruth knows she does not have much time. You will be on the edge of your seat until this murder is solved, time is of the essence. I look forward to reading and reviewing the next book in this series.
