Her bestselling series A Book Retreat Mystery whisks us away to the rolling hills of western Virginia. The collection follows Jane Steward, the resort manager of Storyton Hall.
Throughout the collection, Jane and her resort guests encounter mysterious murders and must find the killer before more guests meet their untimely end. In her fourth book, Murder in the Locked Library, Jane plans to build a luxurious spa at the resort, but the discovery of unusual bones and an antique book buried in the dirt kickstart an exploration into the past all the while a killer begins to runs loose in the present.
