Book 10 in the Beyond The Page Mystery series

Publisher’s Summary

While in England, a first edition of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights leads bookstore owner Addie Greyborne to a murder on the moors . . .

Although enjoying her extended stay working at Second Chance Books and Bindery in West Yorkshire, Addie still feels adrift—far from home, her friends, and her own beloved bookstore, Beyond the Page Books and Curios. The engagement party of her dear friend, Tony, at Milton Manor promises to be a joyful distraction. But there’s an ill wind blowing at the estate: When Tony presents his fiancé with a special copy of Wuthering Heights as an engagement gift, the lord of the manor insists the book was stolen from his library . . .

Things go from troubling to tragic when Addie takes her Yorkipoo, Pippi, out for a walk on the moors and stumbles across the body of a young woman. When the police suspect Tony of foul play, Addie vows to get to the bottom of what’s going on. But it’s a twisted, treacherous path to the truth and Addie will need to watch her every step . . .

 

My Thoughts

For A Limited Edition Murder, Addie Greyborne is living in England. Moving her to England adds new characters and new settings to the series. When the book starts, Addie has been in England for a year. She’s planning on returning home to Massachusetts after the engagement party of her good friend, Tony. She’s having mixed emotions about leaving England. She has a job she enjoys, and she’s made solid friendships she isn’t sure she’s ready to leave.
It’s a conflict that carries throughout the book—does she stay in England or return to Massachusetts?
One thing that is the same. Even in England, Addie finds herself caught up in a murder. She discovers a body on the moors, and she recognizes the woman from Tony’s engagement party from the night before. The investigation brings her into contact with Detective Inspector Noah Parker, former London Metropolitan Police detective. Sparks of irritation fly as they try to solve the murder.

I loved this book. I’ve read all the books in the series, and A Limited Edition Murder is the best book yet. The new British characters are well-written. The mystery is complicated and kept me guessing. A cold case is thrown into the mix, further complicating the story. And the ending! I’m already eager to read the next book in the series.

5/5 stars.
