Once Upon a Seaside Murder by Maggie Blackburn


Summer has come back home to run her mother's bookstore.  Her mother had died, so this bookstore has memories of her anywhere you look.  Summer loves working there with the staff but someone is looking for something and knocks Summer out in an attempt to find it.  This isn't the last time either...

Crooked Lane Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.

She knows that she has a book for sale about a murder that is a cold case.  The author used the bare facts and then fictionlized the rest.  Summer hasn't had the opportunity to read it yet, but she intends to.

There are three authors that plan to tell folks about their books.  All of a sudden, one is kidnapped.  The demand is that Summer has to sell the bookstore to get the missing author back.  The author was staying with her when she was kidnapped.

With all that going on, Summer is trying to get to know her father's family.  Some are receptive and some are not.

She has to be careful.  Whoever the killer is has no reason not to kill her, too.

It's a busy book with lots of characters and various traumas.  It holds your attention.
