I always enjoy cozy mystery stories and this one did not disappoint.  I enjoyed the banter between the characters and the twists of the story kept me guessing until the very end.  I was completely hooked on this story and was totally surprised at whodunnit.  I loved the description of Penzance and the village bookshop.  It sounds like a wonderful place to visit.  I highly recommend this series, it is definitely a must read.

Thank you  Emma Jameson for a wonderful addition to the Jemima Jago Mystery Series. I really enjoyed the plot twists and turns and the end of the story and series was perfect.  I enjoyed it very much and I highly recommend it.

Librarian Jemima Jago can’t 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. On a trip out to picturesque Penzance to visit local gem Tattteredly’s second-hand bookstore, Jem and her best friend Micki get more than they bargained for when they discover the body of the beautiful Gina Marrack, the owner, dead among the stacks…

Unable to resist a real-life mystery, Jem convinces Gina’s friends to talk. She learns Gina wasn’t actually well liked in her little corner of town. A property developer had been sniffing around the street for some time, but Gina had refused to sell up. Did the rowdy real estate agent bump off poor Gina, looking for a quick pay day? Or was her jilted ex-lover out for revenge?

Poking around the scene of the crime, Jem finds an unusual book out of place on the meticulously organized shelves. Could this be a vital clue? And can Jem get to the bottom of the murder before the terrible tale comes to an end for her too?
