WHO WOULD RESORT TO MURDER?
Tucked away in the rolling hills of rural western Virginia is the storybook resort of Storyton Hall, catering to book lovers who want to get away from it all. To increase her number of bookings, resort manager Jane Steward has decided to host a Murder and Mayhem week so that fans of the mystery genre can gather together for some role-playing and fantasy crime solving.
But when the winner of the scavenger hunt, Felix Hampden, is found dead in the Mystery Suite, and the valuable book he won as his prize is missing, Jane realizes one of her guests is an actual murderer. Amid a resort full of fake detectives, Jane is bound and determined to find a real-life killer. There’s no room for error as Jane tries to unlock this mystery before another vacancy opens up…
This is my first cozy by this author and even though it wasn’t humorous like I prefer them it was still a decent read and I will continuing the series.
What I thought of this book.
Jane runs Storyton Hall a resort for book lovers and to gain more attention she has decided to make themed weeks and her first one is Murder and Mayhem for all the mystery lovers out there. They have a lot of fun things set up and one is a scavenger hunt and the person who won would get a book.
It’s a rare book and it seem that more than one person wants to get their hands on it, so much that the might have even committed murder. To make matters worse they gave away the wrong book, Jane’s aunt didn’t mean to giveaway that one because it really was rare and had a note tucked into the cover that was really important.
The book is missing two people are dead and Jane has to try and keep as much of it under wraps as she can because she doesn’t want to ruin the fun the guest are having or have it ruin her resort. Amidst all the mystery buffs Jane has to try and an find a murder.
Not only does Jane have to try and find a murderer but she finds out that she is next in line to protect a vault full of rare books! It’s like a secret society and her aunt is passing it on to her, so she has to learn how to protect herself and the books..what fun!
Jane’s is a great character, she runs a book resort! I mean how cool is that to run a resort that is filled with all sorts of bibliophiles. I think her themed weeks are great and so excited that the first one was murder and mayhem as I am a lover of mysteries. I can’t wait to see what other themed weeks she comes up with or the trouble she gets into.
If you love cozies then you might find this a fun romp so check it out! 🙂
This is my first book with this author. The narrator Johanna Parker took a little while to get use to at first but once it got going she became Jane.
