Librarian Jemima Jago cant resist a whodunnit, but finding a body in a bookshop is a plot twist she could never have expected...
Jem Jago is back at work with her antique books, and spending her weekends exploring her new home-the windswept Isles of Scilly-in her little sailboat, Bellatrix. Shes really starting to settle into island life. Unfortunately, murder in the Scillies is not as rare as some of her manuscripts...
On a trip out to picturesque Penzance with best friend Micki, the pair stumble across an intriguing mystery, not of the fictional kind. In Tatteredlys second-hand bookstore, they discover the body of beautiful Gina Marrak, Mickis former sister-in-law.
Jem cant bear to see Micki so distraught, and with the hapless Detective Conrad in charge of the inquiry, she must do some sleuthing of her own to find out the truth. As she convinces Ginas so-called friends to talk, Jem learns she wasnt actually well liked in her little corner of Penzance. Did the jilted lover, the pretentious pub landlord or the rowdy real estate agent bump off poor Gina?
Poking around the scene of the crime, Jem finds an unusual book which leads her down an unlikely path. But can Jem get to the bottom of the mystery before the terrible tale comes to an end for her too?
A fun, cozy page-turner filled with mystery and intrigue, from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Jameson. Fans of M.C. Beaton, Faith Martin and Agatha Christie will be totally hooked!
