MURDER IN THE LOCKED LIBRARY by Ellery Adams

In the fourth Book Retreat Mystery, set in Storyton Hall, Virginia, Jane Steward is ready to focus on work again as her twin boys return to school. She is the manager of Storyton Hall, a resort where book lovers regularly gather in the Agatha Christie Tea Room to discuss the merits, deadly or otherwise, of their favorite authors.

As Jane oversees the groundbreaking for the resort’s latest attraction, the Walt Whitman Spa, the workers unearth a startling discovery—a collection of unusual bones and the remnants of a scarce old book. The guests of a Rare Book Conference and a visiting archeologist are eager to assist Jane with the unexpected historical mystery—until one of the attendees meets an untimely demise in the Henry James Library. Questions and suspects fill the pages, and Jane needs to uncover the killer before more lives are erased.
