Death on the Page: A Castle Bookshop Mystery
Shelby Cox is getting Bayside Books ready for visiting true-crime author Savannah Page, who has come to the castle to do research for her upcoming book about the previous mobster owner. Little does Shelby know this trip will quickly turn deadly. Savannah Page soon goes missing only to be found dead. She seeks to uncover the secret Savannah’s fiancé is keeping, the motives of two writers, and what the murder may have to do with the island’s caretaker. As Shelby navigates rocky waters in search of a killer, she navigates her budding relationship with the handsome coast guard Zack Griffin and uncovers a few surprising secrets that could rock the island.
The mystery has several surprises in store for Shelby as she explores Savannah’s life and the connection between her death and the death of the mobster who once owned the castle. The romance Shelby has with Zack continues to be sweet as they’re still working on how to define their relationship, which has a few complications when Shelby discovers someone from Zack’s past on the island. The story is grounded in Shelby’s various relationships with the lives of her friends woven into the background through Edie’s knee replacement and Taylor’s trouble with her mother-in-law and her pregnancy. Her friends help her throughout the mystery with various clues and suspects, which puts her into a little conflict with Zack. Death on the Page is charming, funny, and clever with an addicting mystery that pulls you in right from the beginning.
