A midwest librarian vacations in London and becomes entangled in a murder mystery when one dead body turns up in the B&B where she is staying-and she fears there will be another-in this first book in an engaging new cozy librarian series. Minnesota librarian Karen Nash decides to go on her London vacation anyway even though her boyfriend has jilted her the day they are about to leave. Then she sees him at the airport boarding the same plane as she, only with another woman. Karen’s thoughts turn murderous and later spill over in what she assumes is an idle pub conversation with a sympathetic stranger. Only later does she realize this man might have taken her at her word when she angrily said wanted her ex dead. Meanwhile as Karen gets better acquainted with Caldwell Perkins, the owner of the charming B&B where she is staying, she discovers they have a lot in common-he might well love books as much as she does. Things are starting to look up when all of a sudden a dead body turns up in Caldwell’s B&B sitting room-and several of the guests have reason seem suspicious. Karen can’t help but play detective, and clues begin to fall into place as she visits museums, used bookstores and the Chelsea garden show. With that mystery solved, Karen realizes it’s time to put her hurt and anger behind her. But is it too late?
