Murder by the Book (Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery, #1) 4 STARS

Great way to start off this series. I will start by saying, I love books about books, mysteries, new friendships and budding romance. Yes, you guessed it, this book has it all.

Addie loved her job at the Boston Public Library, where she did some biblio-sleuthing by tracking down old and rare books. This was something that was in her blood as she soon finds out.

After receiving an unexpected inheritance from a great aunt, Addie leaves the big city and painful memories behind when she moves to a small seaside town in New England. Moving into Greyborne Manor, her family’s home, she finds that her aunt also left her countless first editions and other treasures—providing an inventory to start her own store.

When Addie’s store is broken into as well as her home, she starts to wonder if her tragic past, aunt’s death, and the current situations are all connected somehow. With the help of hunky detective Marc and his sister Serena, Addie’s new bff, will they be able to put this mystery together before its too late?

I have this book in both digital (NetGalley) and audio versions. The narrator, Karen White, does an amazing job.
