Murder in the Paperback Parlor (#2)
Book #93 Read in 2015
Murder in the Paperback Parlor by Ellery Adams
This is the second book in a cozy mystery series set in Storyton Hall, a wonderful literary retreat for readers and writers, set in the small town of Storyton, which is full of quaint shops. Jane is running the Hall and is a member of a secret society of librarians who are charged with keeping safe literary treasures from all over the world, from all different time periods. In this book, a romance readers convention is being held and of course there is a murder for Jane to solve. Jane is a tough, intelligent woman who can handle her own. Besides Jane, there are delightful characters such as her twin sons, her aunt and uncle, Muffet Cat and the other members of the secret society. This mystery was well written and the identity of the murderer kept me guessing until the end. I highly recommend this series to cozy mystery lovers. I cannot wait for book #3 to come out next summer. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
