Publisher's Summary

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Jane Steward is organizing a week of activities for fans of love stories at her book-themed resort. But her Regency readers barely have time to brush up on their Jane Austen before tragedy strikes Storyton Hall. Rosamund York, one of the most celebrated authors in attendance, is killed.
Rosamund had as many enemies as she did admirers, including envious fellow novelists, a jealous former lover, and dozens of angry fans. It's up to Jane, with the help of her book club, the Cover Girls, to catalogue the list of suspects and find a heartless killer quickly - before the murderer writes someone else off.

Great Second Installment!

What did you love best about Murder in the Paperback Parlor?

I loved that the mystery was wrapped up in so many other intriguing story lines. This book delivers mystery, romance, humor & a whole cast of characters who are narrated so perfectly and brought to life. By the end of the book you will wish that Storyton was a real place because trust me you will want to visit! I love books that make you feel like you are transported into them, and this fit the bill


Who was your favorite character and why?

Outside of the main character Jane I really love Aunt Octavia. She is so sassy and you can't help but love her!


Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was at the very end when the twins went to the Pickled Pig for the pig naming ceremony. It really brought the story full circle and also left the plot open for book 3


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. I broke it up into 3 days because I wanted to really have time to enjoy it, but you could get so wrapped up in the story that it's very easy to read in just 1 sitting!


Any additional comments?

I was looking forward to this book for months before its release, and now I am even more anxious for Book 3 next year. This series is charming and captivating. Book 1 is Murder in the Mystery Suite, so i recommend you start there to understand the characters on a more intimate level.
