Book Description

A New Chapter – Book 1

Mary Fisher’s dream has come true. She’s finally about to open Mary’s Mystery Bookshop in her beloved hometown of Ivy Bay tucked away on beautiful Cape Cod. But weeks before the grand opening, her shop is broken into and torn apart. Mary is shocked, but she’s even more stunned to discover that the only thing the intruder stole was an old, dusty photograph of the storefront. Who would have taken it and why?

As Mary searches for answers, she enlists the help of her sister Betty and her childhood friend Henry. Using skills learned from decades of reading mystery novels, Mary uncovers some intriguing clues—including a strange book—that led her not only closer to the truth about the break-in but also to unsettling secrets of her family’s history. She struggles to get the store ready to open, but can she find the answers to keep her dream alive?
