Can't-Wait Wednesday: Murder by the Book by Lauren Elliott #LaurenElliott @KensingtonBooks ‏

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

SERIES: Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery, Book #1
AUTHOR: Lauren Elliott 
PUBLISHER: Kensington Publishing Corporation
FORMAT: Paperback
LENGTH: 304 pages
GENRE: Mystery/Cozy Mystery
ISBN: 9781496720191
Addie Greyborne loved working with rare books at the Boston Public Library--she even got to play detective, tracking down clues about mysterious old volumes. But she didn't expect her sleuthing skills to come in so handy in a little seaside town . . .

Addie left some painful memories behind in the big city, including the unsolved murder of her fiance and her father's fatal car accident. After an unexpected inheritance from a great aunt, she's moved to a small New England town founded by her ancestors back in colonial times--and living in spacious Greyborne Manor, on a hilltop overlooking the harbor. Best of all, her aunt also left her countless first editions and other treasures--providing an inventory to start her own store.

But there's trouble from day one, and not just from the grumpy woman who runs the bakery next door. A car nearly runs Addie down. Someone steals a copy of Alice in Wonderland. Then, Addie's friend Serena, who owns a nearby tea shop, is arrested--for killing another local merchant. The police seem pretty sure they've got the story in hand, but Addie's not going to let them close the book on this case without a fight . .

This author is new to me, but this sounds like a cozy mystery series that I would enjoy! I love the bookshop setting in a small town, which reminds me of Lorna Barrett's Booktown Mystery series.
