WHO WOULD RESORT TO MURDER?
Tucked away in the rolling hills of rural western Virginia is the storybook resort of Storyton Hall, catering to book lovers who want to get away from it all. To increase her number of bookings, resort manager Jane Steward has decided to host a Murder and Mayhem week so that fans of the mystery genre can gather together for some role-playing and fantasy crime solving.
But when the winner of the scavenger hunt, Felix Hampden, is found dead in the Mystery Suite, and the valuable book he won as his prize is missing, Jane realizes one of her guests is an actual murderer. Amid a resort full of fake detectives, Jane is bound and determined to find a real-life killer. There’s no room for error as Jane tries to unlock this mystery before another vacancy opens up…
In order to review as many books as possible without stressing myself out, I’m going to be super mini- tweet style reviews to balance my usual review style. I love reviewing books, but sometimes writing a long review is daunting, and then I end up not reviewing the many, many books I’ve read. All my Short and Tweet reviews will be 140 characters or less. Thanks to Tif from Tif Talks Books for the idea!
A cozy mystery set in a town and resort that caters to readers with a National Treasure-esque twist? Hells, yeah! I really enjoyed the concept, and Jane’s book club and Aunt Octavia were the best (even if I found her twins a bit Scrappy-ish). A Book Retreat Resort needs to be a real thing. That I can go to.
