This one gets a bit carried away. At one point Helen Shandy and friends are sailing and thrown overboard by some bizarre villains. All because she took pictures of weather vanes for a historical book. The Peter Shandy books are usually fun, this one just is a bit much. It's still a good read, but the rest of Balaclava College is away and it's not as much fun without the president and others on hand.

This is an action packed mystery. Helen and her husband, Peter, both have their own action adventure. Peter has to escape from a guerrilla forces and Helen is thrown off a boat and has to survive her way to an island. The mystery is a little out there, but I loved it. The characters are great and the mystery is interesting.

Praxiteles Lumpkin traveled the countryside making weather vanes, but in the age of collectors his work is little know. Balaclava college librarian, Helen Shandy is requested to survey the existing artifacts and photograph them. This is work she enjoys, pure research.
Once Helen takes her shots disaster occurred and the valuable weather vanes disappear, which become much too frequent to be accidents.

Years ago, I read this book in Paperback. Since my eyes aren't what they use be and wanted to read them again I found the hard copy. I enjoyed it just as much as I did then. I found the complete series in hard copies from various dealers and I'm having a ball reading the books over again. They are "who done its" but Hilarious to boot. For those who haven't read them I'd highly recommend you do. I think you'll get just as much pleasure as I did.

Professor Peter Shandy and his wife Helen are up against it in this amusing tale of theft and mayhem and stolen weather vanes. Assisted by the Fane and Pennon's demon reporter Cronkite Swope, the pair split up to save Balaclava County from dastardly arsonists, dangerous survivalists, and dimwitted pirates.

A rollicking yarn full of offbeat characters and bizarre connections. Enjoy!

Was a fun quick read with interesting characters and situations

This is quintessential MacLeod, filled with eccentric characters and hilariously mannered dialogue. One of my favorite cozy mysteries that I regularly re-read just for the fun of it. The story starts with the theft of a famous weather vane, made by the 19th C. itinerant artist Praxiteles Lumpkin, from atop the Lumpkinton Soap Works and takes off from there to visit hobbit holes, a Maine lumberjack school and an eventful whale watch.
I first read this book many years ago courtesy of the public library. I fell in love with the works of Charlotte MacLeod, and so I was delighted when I found out Amazon had the book used, in good condition, for such a reasonable price! If you haven't read the series before, get thee to a library and give it a try! Re-reading Vane Pursuit is like a visit from an old friend, with the addition that I now "get" many more of the little literary jokes and references sprinkled through the text. Book was in condition described, slightly worn and yellowed but no marks on inside pages and apparently comes from a smoke-free place. Would I buy again? In a heartbeat!
