Book One in a new series, the Book Lover’s B&B series


A book lover’s B&B in an idyllic waterfront village becomes the scene of a grisly murder–and a ruthless battle between treachery and the truth.

“Gilbert (“Blue Ridge Library” mysteries) introduces an intelligent, mature amateur sleuth, and a shrewd elderly sidekick in the first in a character-driven cozy series. The leisurely paced mystery offers complex characters with well-developed backgrounds and motives. Readers of Ellery Adams’s “Book Retreat” mysteries will appreciate this new series.”

– Library Journal

“[A] charming series launch…Cozy fans and book lovers will be satisfied.”

Publishers Weekly

“Intellectually challenging…A solid addition to a popular cozy category.”
New York Journal of Books

“Historic Beaufort, North Carolina, is the beautiful backdrop for an ugly murder… A clever, sympathetic heroine and oodles of local color.”


“Booked for Death will book you into a delightful mystery that brings to life a charming town with a genuine feeling of community, the strength of friendship, and delightful characters.” – San Francisco Book Review

“Gilbert…kicks off the Book Lovers B&B Mystery series with of the hallmarks of a cozy: a small town with lots of history; a gently paced plot; sympathetic, book-loving characters; and even a little dog.” — Booklist
