This is the 6th book in the Book Retreat Series by Ellery Adams. I always enjoy reading these cozies since they center around books and mysteries. This one didn't disappoint and the mystery and personal stories were engaging. I look forward to reading more in the series. I hope there is a foreign travel twist in a future edition.
Murder in the Storybook Cottage by Ellery Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It is always enjoyable to read about the adventures at Storyton Hall. You cannot help but root on Jane Steward and her Fins when trying to solve a crime. This one is centered around Valentine's Day and a children's book conference. The descriptions of the events that encompass children's storybooks is wonderful and I wish I could be transported to the events.
There is budding romance around given the holiday but these are a nice extra rather than the focus of the stories. Edwin and Jane's twins, Hem & Fitz provide lots of ahh moments and levity.
The mystery itself is well written and Adams leads us to follow clues to multiple suspects. In the end the story is well wrapped up and the motives explained.
I look forward to reading more in the series.
