Murder in the Storybook Cottage

(The sixth book in the Book Retreat Mystery series)
A novel by

Storyton Hall, Virginia, is a top travel destination for book lovers and the perfect spot for literary events. But as a children's book publisher hosts a gathering there, some folks aren't going to live - happier ever after or otherwise . . .

Jane Steward's resort is hopping - not only is Peppermint Press's conference in full swing, there are also lots of families staying on the premises, bringing their kids to events like a scavenger hunt through the Fairy Tale Forest.

Then a woman dressed like Little Red Riding Hood is found dead from a plot device straight out of a fairy tale - with a rare and valuable copy of Grimm's Fairy Tales in her basket. Not long after, a second victim is killed, with yet another treasure - a volume by Hans Christian Andersen worth thousands of dollars - nearby. It looks like a big bad wolf may be lurking among the guests, and Jane can't just wait for a handsome prince to come to the rescue . . .

"Readers will find themselves wanting to live in Storyton, no matter how many people end up dead there." - Suspense Magazine on Murder in the Locked Library
