What Readers are saying:

Tarnished Silver” transports you to the Eastern Shore of Maryland but will remind you of whatever town has a special place in your heart – hopefully without murder.  It left me wondering what other secrets this quaint little Eastern Shore town is hiding and I’m waiting for Susan Reiss to tell me.  — Barbara Viniar, President, Chesapeake College, Wye Mills, MD

“Tarnished Silver” captures the local flavor of our area – St. Michaels, the food and the quirky characters who live here and visit.  The descriptions are so real I could feel myself driving by MEBA, through town on the St. Michaels Road all the way to Tilghman Island.  The mystery kept me turning the page.  This is a book I recommend to my library patrons… and to you.
