Hayley Burke has just landed her dream job as curator of the First Edition Library, housed in the manse of the late Lady Georgiana Fowling in the heart of Bath, England. Not only is it a great job, but it also comes with living quarters on the premises. The other resident in Middlebank House is Glynis Woolgar, Lady Fowling’s former secretary. Mrs. Woolgar is suspicious of Hayley, and would love to catch her at something that the Board would disapprove of. Then, when a member of a fan fiction writers’ group is found dead in the library, Hayley plays detective to find the killer, save the library, and keep her new job! This first book in Seattle author Wingate’s latest series is a thoroughly engaging cozy with all the appropriate elements – even a prescient tabby named Bunter.
