A new author for me and the first book of the series. The cover and author’s name attracted me to this book. I was disappointed because the format of the book is not a favorite of mine. I find it difficult to jump from one story to another. I thought the ending was original but easy to guess it. I like the current mystery and would have a higher rating of the second story had not been included. I found the book being written by the main character very simple and the titles of the characters annoy me.
Samantha Washington has opened her dream mystery bookstore. Using the proceeds of her dead husband’s insurance she bought a building and started the bookstore they had a plan to run. Before it opens the real estate dealer is found dead in the garden. Samantha explores the mystery of his death to clear the names of her friends. Yes, she is writing a mystery set in England in the 1930’s that is similar to the current story. Samantha needs to find the answer before she loses her life?
