Welcome to Storyton Hall, Virginia, where book lovers travel from near and far to enjoy the singular comforts of the Agatha Christie Tea Room, where they can discuss the merits of their favorite authors no matter how deadly the topic . . .

With her twins, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, back in school, Jane Steward can finally focus on her work again--managing Storyton Hall, and breaking ground on the resort's latest attraction: a luxurious, relaxing spa named in honor of Walt Whitman. But when the earth is dug up to start laying the spa's foundation, something else comes to the surface--a collection of unusual bones and the ragged remnants of a very old book. The attendees of the Rare Book Conference are eager to assist Jane with this unexpected historical mystery--until a visitor meets an untimely end in the Henry James Library. As the questions--and suspects--start stacking up, Jane will have to uncover a killer before more unhappy endings ensue . . .

"Combines clever clues, a smart and courageous heroine and an interesting setting in a whodunit that will inspire readers to make further visits to Storyton Hall."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch on Murder in the Paperback Parlor

Review:

Praise for Murder in the Locked Library

"Creating a group of suspects that will keep readers intrigued until the last page, Ellery Adams has proven one thing with this book: this is one series that should and will go on for a long time to come. In fact, the author has done such a brilliant job, readers will find themselves wanting to live in Storyton, no matter how many people end up dead there." -Suspense Magazine

"Ellery does a wonderful job in capturing the essence of this whodunit with visually descriptive narrative that not only lend itself to engaging dialogue, but also seeing the action through the eyes of Jane and her fellow characters." -Dru's Book Musings

"In MURDER IN THE LOCKED LIBRARY...there is a very old pile of bones, an old book buried with the bones, and plenty more bodies are discovered. There are laugh-out-loud moments along with the serious which makes for a most enjoyable read. Avid readers will keep this novel on their keeper shelves! Ellery Adams is a marvelous writer; she intertwines famous quotes, famous authors, and famous books to create mystery magic."- RT Book Reviews TOP PICK

Praise for Ellery Adams' previous book, The Secret, Book & Scone Society


"Adams launches an intriguing new mystery series, headed by four spirited amateur sleuths and touched with a hint of magical realism, which celebrates the power of books and women's friendships. Adams's many fans, readers of Sarah Addison Allen, and anyone who loves novels that revolve around books will savor this tasty treat."
--Library Journal (starred review), Pick of the Month

"Adams kicks off a new series featuring strong women, a touch of romance and mysticism, and both the cunning present-day mystery and the slowly revealed secrets of the intriguing heroines' pasts."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This affecting series launch from Adams provides all the best elements of a traditional mystery. . . . Well-drawn characters complement a plot with an intriguing twist or two."
--Publishers Weekly

"Adams' new series blends magical realism, smart women, and small-town quirks to create a cozy mystery that doubles as a love letter to books. Readers will fall in love with Nora's bookstore therapy and Hester's comfort scones. Not to mention Estella, June, hunky Jed the paramedic, and Nora's tiny house-slash-converted-train-caboose . . . a book that mystery fans--and avid readers--won't want to put down until they have savored every last crumb."
--RT Book Reviews
