Do you like privates, hidden treasure, romantic history, curses, and feuds? The second installment of this series has all of the themes mention to make for an exciting story. The cover invites you to read it. Beyond The Page Bookstore second book is hard to date, anything from 3 to 4 stars would be correct. I finally settled on 3 1/2 stars and round it off to 3 stars. I felt the flow of writing of the writing was often interrupted due to the addition of many new characters. A love triangle has been added plus a new enemy and a coroner are added. 
Addie Greystone's problems with negative reports on her including a next door shopkeeper. The local newspaper is reporting untrue information about her in its gossip columns. She Learned that 300 years ago a  Davenport convicted of privacy curses an ancestor of the Greystone's family at is hanging. It started a feud between the two family groups. A book about the privates who used the cove for safety is missing. The author of the book is found in one of the underground tunnels they used. The tunnels have been closed for a number of years for safety reasons. Abbie feels she must investigate to clear her family name. It is unclear what is the cause of the death of the author. Addie needs an answer before she disappears in a tunnel. I recommend this book
