Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing A Death at Silversmith Bay by Emma Jameson. This was released on the 21st of February, published by Bookouture.
Librarian Jemima Jago can’t resist a whodunnit, but finding a body in a bookshop is a plot twist she could never have expected…
Jem Jago is back at work with her antique books, and spending her weekends exploring her new home—the windswept Isles of Scilly—in her little sailboat, Bellatrix. She’s really starting to settle into island life. Unfortunately, murder in the Scillies is not as rare as some of her manuscripts…
On a trip out to picturesque Penzance with best friend Micki, the pair stumble across an intriguing mystery, not of the fictional kind. In Tatteredly’s second-hand bookstore, they discover the body of beautiful Gina Marrak, Micki’s former sister-in-law.
Jem can’t bear to see Micki so distraught, and with the hapless Detective Conrad in charge of the inquiry, she must do some sleuthing of her own to find out the truth. As she convinces Gina’s so-called friends to talk, Jem learns she wasn’t actually well liked in her little corner of Penzance. Did the jilted lover, the pretentious pub landlord or the rowdy real estate agent bump off poor Gina?
Poking around the scene of the crime, Jem finds an unusual book which leads her down an unlikely path. But can Jem get to the bottom of the mystery before the terrible tale comes to an end for her too?
A fun, cozy page-turner filled with mystery and intrigue, from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Jameson. Fans of M.C. Beaton, Faith Martin and Agatha Christie will be totally hooked!
I enjoyed being back with Jem and this mystery with all it had to offer and had fun trying to the solve the puzzle. It lead me down a path of an unlikeable victim, plenty of suspects each with a motive to kill and red herrings to keep me off the scent. The inclusion of Jem’s sister adds another level of complexity as to whether or not she is involved in this crime, which keeps things very interesting indeed.
Well written with its picturesque setting, cast of colourful characters, humour and a good mystery to solve, A Death at Silversmith Bay is another great addition to this delightful cozy mystery series and I look forward to more instalments.
