Book 1: A New Chapter
Author: Kristin Eckhardt Hardcover:
Mary loves her new life in the quaint beach village of Ivy Bay! Around every corner is a picturesque view worthy of a postcard. In fact, Mary thinks she’s found a little piece of heaven…but when her store is broken into one night, Mary begins to realize that not everything is as peaceful and serene as it seems. Mary is days away from her store’s Grand Opening when the window in the door of her bookshop is smashed in, the shelves overturned, and the rug pulled up. But the intruder didn’t take anything except for an antique photo of her store front. As Mary tries to track down the person who could have wanted that photo – and why – she uncovers a secret that may mean the end of Mary’s Mystery Bookshop.
Book 2: Rewriting History
Author: Vera Dodge
Mary’s Mystery Bookshop is hosting a very special guest: beloved mystery author Addison Hartley. Hartley gives an intimate reading to the fans gathered in the store, but Mary’s eyes are drawn not to the famous author but to a familiar face in the crowd. Could it be Mary’s best friend from childhood, Claire Wilkes? As soon as Mary moves to greet her old friend, the woman disappears. Mary is certain it was Claire, but no one else seems to have recognized her and Mary begins to doubt herself. But when Mary reads Hartley’s new novel, she finds eerie parallels to her own history. And when terrible rumors surface around town about a secret relationship between Claire and Mary’s husband John, Mary is more determined than ever to track down Claire. What brought her to Mary’s store? Why did she run away? What was her connection to the best-selling novel? And, more importantly, were the rumors about Claire and Mary’s husband true?
Book 3: Reading the Clues
Author: Charlotte Carter
Mary’s sister Betty receives notice that she is being sued and that the Emerson Grist Mill, which has been in her late husband Edward’s family for hundreds of year, actually belongs to the Hopkinses, who the Emersons have feuded with for generations. The mill used to be the center of commerce in Ivy Bay, and it has been a point of pride – as well as financial gain – for the Emersons for as long as anyone can remember. Betty is sure that the news can’t be true, but Mary isn’t so certain and sets out to unravel the mill’s forgotten history. As Mary digs for clues about the mill’s ownership in the town archives, she hears rumors of a murder that started the family feud. Could it possibly be true? Could Edward’s ancestors have killed one of the Hopkinses over the old grist mill? As Mary learns more, she finds clues – a mysterious ledger, an antique doll, a Revolutionary War uniform and an old family Bible – that seems to indicate answers no one wants to believe. What really happened at the mill all of those year ago? And will Mary’s and Betty’s lives ever be the same when they find out?
