About For Whom the Book Tolls

For Whom the Book Tolls is a cozy mystery set in Howe’s Folly, North Carolina.

For Whom the Book Tolls-summary

It’s two o’clock in the morning in Hoke’s Folly, NC.  Jenna Quinn quietly enters her Uncle Paul’s antique bookstore store. Jenna’s Uncle Paul gave her a chance to leave her hometown of Charlotte, NC. While in Charlotte, she was accused and cleared of murder and embezzlement charges. But the next morning, Jenna finds Paul’s body in the bookstore. Now, Detective Frank Sutter suspects Jenna of murder and he is determined to prove her guilty. Jenna, on the other hand, is equally determined to prove her innocence. Her cadre of new friends, including the handsome detective Keith Logan, are determined to help her.

Uncle Paul’s death makes Jenna an instant millionaire. Her inheritance also solidifies her position as the number one suspect in Paul’s murder. Jenna needs to clear her name. Rita Wallace, a friend of Uncle Paul and Jenna’s new next door neighbor, is Jenna’s first ally. During their investigation, Jenna discovers her uncle’s enemies as well as friends devastated by his death. As the investigation continues, the killer targets Jenna. Will she figure out the murderer’s identity in time? Or end up like her Uncle Paul before the killer is revealed?

My thoughts

At first, I wasn’t sure I would like this new cozy mystery.  I gave it chance and ended up enjoying the book. The more I read, the it was harder to put down. I was a little frustrated that more details about what happened Charlotte weren’t forth coming in this book, so I hope more backstory will be revealed as the series continues.
