Publisher's Summary

Bookshop owner Addie Greyborne must solve a locked-room murder in a supposedly haunted mansion to recover a priceless Sherlock Holmes original...

The seaside New England town of Greyborne Harbor is home to many grand estates, including the Queen Anne Victorian Addie inherited from her great aunt. Now one of those mansions is holding an estate sale, which is just what the bookshop owner needs to replenish her supply of rare editions - even if the house is rumored to be haunted. 

Assisting an overwhelmed insurance appraiser with the inventory, Addie discovers an 1887 magazine containing Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, which she estimates to be worth over $150,000.

But when Addie later finds the appraiser dead in the estate's private library, with the door bolted from the inside, and the priceless edition missing, it's a mystery worthy of the Great Detective himself. She's certain the death and the robbery are connected - but who, other than a ghost who can walk through walls, could have gotten in to do the deed? It's up to Addie to find the key to the crime - before she's the next one cornered by a killer...

Tried to stay with the series….

I tried to stay with the series but had to give it up after this book. I do not like the Simon character at all. Mark should have been the one for Addie. The story was good I just don’t like the way the characters turned out. First time not sticking with a series😔

Worst one yet

I’ve enjoyed audible for many years. Usually if I can’t get interested in a story, I return. Although that doesn’t happen often. Happened twice this time though. This was my second choice. Since I had just returned a story, audible requires a call to customer service to exchange. I didn’t bother with it and forced myself to continue listening. It was rough. Lol. Karen white is one of my favorite narrators but I didn’t enjoy her story telling this time either. I think it was the story line. The author could have probably shaved about 5 hours off this book. Way too much fluff

skipped from chapter 10 to last chapter

There is such a difference between excitement and stress. Why read a cozy mystery other than for fun and escapism? A constantly beleaguered heroine is exhausting.

Proof of Murder

Addie always gets herself involved in situations! In this novel it involves books and a haunted house! Of course there's a body too. What is a good mystery without one? I really enjoyed the book with all of it's twists and turns!
