Publisher's Summary

Star City is known for its slopes and its powder. But nestled in the valley of this ski resort town is a side street full of shops that specialize in the simple charms of earlier eras. One of those shops is the Rescued Word, where Chester Henry and his adult granddaughter Clare lovingly repair old typewriters and restore old books. Who ever thought their quaint store would hold the key to some modern-day trouble?
When a stranger to town demands they turn over an antique Underwood typewriter they're repairing for a customer, Clare fears she may need to be rescued. A call to the police scares the man off, but later Clare finds his dead body in the back alley. What about a dusty old typewriter could possibly be worth killing for?

I enjoyed listening to this cozy mystery. Maguerite Gaven us one of my favorite nsrrators. She does a great job bringing these characters to life. The story is well written with engaging characters who behave realistically. I hope the rest of the books are made available to Audible listeners.
