Jane Steward is anticipating a wonderful week of authors, readers and great food at Storyton Hall. This book-themed resort is a wonderful place to meet others that have a great love of books. The theme for this week is romance. Jane has even managed to snag one of the most beloved romance writers - Rosamund York. Her readers might love her - but most of the other writers are plain fed up with her antics. So when a dead Rosamund is found in Milton's garden - Jane knows it is time to take charge.

Things to ponder: Who hated Rosamund enough to kill her? Will Jane be able to save the reputation of Storyton Hall? Did someone poison Rosamund?

A mystery that takes place at a book-themed resort - it doesn't get any better. The author has woven in a bunch of suspects that will keep cozy mystery lovers guessing. The story is well paced and keeps you reading until you find out whodunit. So if you like your mystery filled with books, then you should be reading Murder in the Paperback Parlor.
