The Bookshop Detective
Author: Jan Ellis
This book is published on the Waverley Books imprint, and you can find more details there.
When a ghost ship is spotted on the horizon one spring evening, bookseller Eleanor decides to investigate the myths and legends of Combemouth, the seaside town where she runs The Reading Room. As Eleanor digs deeper into the town’s history, she becomes intrigued by a Victorian crime report and is determined to find out what happened to a boy at the centre of the court case.
As she begins to uncover the
truth – aided by the vicar but somewhat stalled by the local librarian –
she has a challenge on her own horizon. Daniel – her husband of six
months – is determined that they give up their separate homes and find a
new place together. But Eleanor adores her cottage by the sea and
resists, guaranteeing that things turn a little frosty as the summer
begins. A book launch, an exploding dress, some salsa-dancing pensioners
and an ageing rock star make this a mystery with a difference.
About the Author:
Jan Ellis began writing fiction by accident in 2013. Until then, she had led a blameless life as a publisher, editor and historian of early modern Spain. She fell into fiction when a digital publisher approached her to write a history book, then made the mistake of mentioning women’s fiction, which sounded much more fun.
Jan’s stories have small-town settings with realistic characters who range in age from young teens to eighty-somethings. She is somewhat surprised to find herself a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association.
