From the critically acclaimed author of SIBA Okra Pick A Murder for the Books, Victoria Gilbert embarks with a new series for perfect for fans of Kate Carlisle and Juliet Blackwell.
A book lover's B&B in an idyllic waterfront village becomes the scene of a grisly murder--and a ruthless battle between treachery and the truth.
Nestled in the historic waterfront town of Beaufort, North Carolina, Chapters Bed-and-Breakfast is a reader's paradise. Built in 1770, the newly renovated inn hosts a roster of special events celebrating books, genres, and authors. It's the perfect literary retreat--until a rare book dealer turns up dead in the carriage house during a celebration of Golden Age mystery author Josephine Tey.
The victim's daughter points the finger at forty-two-year-old widow and former schoolteacher Charlotte Reed, who inherited the B&B from her great-aunt Isabella. Charlotte is shocked to discover that the book dealer suspected Isabella of being a thief who founded Chapters on her ill-gotten gains. Charlotte has successfully learned the B&B business in a year, but nothing has prepared her to handle a death on the premises.
Armed with intelligence and courage and assisted by her vibrant older neighbor, a visiting author, and members of a local book club, Charlotte is determined to prove her innocence and to clear her great-aunt's name. But the murderer is still at large, and equally determined to silence anyone who might discover the truth behind the book dealer's death. Now, Charlotte must outwit an unknown killer--or end up writing her own final chapter.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Charlotte gets more then she bargained for this time! The B&B is doing fairly well and they are getting ready for a big week long literary event with lots of things planned. A few of the guests are A little hard to get along with but that quickly any really am issue until one of them tries to blackmail her about a secret in her Aunt's past. Before she can decide what she wants to do about the accusation the man turns up dead with his daughter telling the cops it was all Charlotte. Well of course she has to clear her name and she takes us along my with her. Prepare for surprise and twists you never expected all wrapped up in the literary theme of the book. Makes for a fantastically fun cozy read that I highly recommend to fans of the genre. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
