If you enjoy cosy mysteries, this one was mostly low-key, not overly exciting, yet had a very interesting angle for creating the characters. It featured a grandfather (Chester) and grand daughter (Clare) who together run a shop that repairs old typewriters and books called The Rescued Word. I don’t know this for sure, but I’m guessing that many of us who read cosy mysteries may well recall typing on actual typewriters (well, I do). So at least for me, that certainly made the book more fun.
Who would ever think someone might get killed after trying desperately to buy or steal an old typewriter? Well, that is the dilemma in this book. As Clare has to work with her best friend Jodi and her brother Creighton (whom she formerly dated) who are both part of the Sky City, Utah police force, to solve this odd mystery, she faces danger, and finds love.
I think the strength of this book was in creation of interesting characters. The weakness might have been the narration, which was okay, but felt a little lackluster. I wouldn’t call this a page-turner, but it was a good solid listen. Recommend.

This is a new author to me. As the characters develop, the writer makes quick work of focusing on the main people and shops. The story is smooth and engaging from the start. The narrator sets just the right tone. Great read!
