Trouble on the Books: A Castle Bookshop Mystery

We rated this book:


Shelby Cox returns to her hometown to help her aunt with Bayside Books and to run the special location in the castle on Blye Island. She thought the toughest part of her job was dealing with a rather opinionated volunteer until she finds a body, landing herself in the middle of a mystery. When the caretaker is the prime suspect, her aunt convinces Shelby to prove his innocence, which leads her to a possible smuggling operation and interrogating suspects, slightly interfering with Special Agent Zack Griffin’s own investigation.

Shelby is a city girl slowly finding how she fits into this small town community which results in many humorous moments. She’s a natural sleuth, so her curiosity and desire for the truth make her someone you’d want to interview suspects and uncover clues with. The case takes her into the castle’s history, the world of smuggling, and a love triangle with a twist around every corner and a lighter mystery woven throughout as she looks for answers about her mom. Essie Lang delivers a satisfying mystery with a touch of romance, fun characters, and a stunning location.

Trouble on the Books is the first book in the Castle Bookshop Mystery series.
