Wm. R. Robertson Posted April 23, 2014 Share Posted April 23, 2014 Not all research books have to be non-fiction. The late Sarah Salisbury spent decades fitting out Miss Marple's Cottage to every detail of Agatha Christie's stories. Janet Gleeson's The Grenadillo Box: A Novel is a murder mystery with one of Thomas Chippendale's clients being the deceased and the story told trough the a young journeyman cabinetmaker Nathaniel Hopson. The descriptions of the shop culture are so vivid I can almost smell the rich Cuban Mahogany being planed……. a fun read for any period furniture maker that likes a little murder mystery….. http://www.amazon.com/The-Grenadillo-Box-A-Novel/dp/0743246861 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
