Y’all, I just about fell off the planet the last couple of weeks! I was working on a proofreading project that took up all my spare time. Plus, we’re trying to pack and move. We’re moving on Easter weekend. It is chaos and madness up in here. I am tired.
But today, I am back for another round of Can’t-Wait Wednesday! Huzzah! Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme that highlights books soon to be released, the ones we’re excited about but haven’t read yet. It’s hosted by Wishful Endings, and was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine. Y’all can check out all of this week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday posts here.
Title: Under the Cover of Murder
Series: Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery #6
Author: Lauren Elliott
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Publication Date: March 30, 2021
Bookshop owner and maid of honor Addie Greyborne vows to catch the killer who crashed her best friend’s wedding…
It promises to be Greyborne Harbor’s wedding of the year. The impending nuptials of Serena Chandler and Zach Ludlow will take place aboard his family’s luxurious super-yacht, currently moored in the harbor and the talk of the town. But on the day of the wedding, a man’s body washes up on the beach with no ID, only a torn page from a book in his pocket. As owner of Beyond the Page Books and Curios, bibliophile Addie is called in to identify the book, but she cannot.
The morning following the extravagant ceremony, a second body washes ashore and Addie has a sinking feeling that the two deaths are connected. While the guests are held on the yacht as the police investigate, at least Addie can peruse Zach’s father’s rare books library on board. A copy of Agatha Christie’s first Hercule Poirot novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, provides a clue that the killer may still be on the ship—but narrowing down the suspects without becoming the next victim may prove a truly Herculean task…
I love Lauren Elliott’s Beyond the Page Bookstore Mysteries! Addie is a likeable heroine, and any mystery set in a bookstore is tops in my opinion. These are always a treat to read, and I’m sure this one will be no exception. It comes out March 30 – just around the corner!
