A quiet book lover falls for a rugged carpenter… who doesn’t even like to read?!?

“…The author has captured a gentler time yet made it the present. I wish I could discover this cozy bookstore and the people who keep it going. I loved the book and the feeling of timelessness….” — Illinois Reader, Amazon review

Book 1: A Book to Kill For

Maggie Bell loves working at a bookshop in the charming town of Fair Haven, Connecticut. After her beloved boss passes away, his son, Joshua Whitfield, comes into town and turns Maggie’s world upside down. He wants to turn part of the store into a cafe and sell books about vampires and silly romances. Maggie is horrified.

But when an electrician is killed in the middle of the bookshop renovations, Joshua is the prime suspect. Maggie must put their differences aside to clear his name. She finds herself becoming more and more attracted to Joshua. Can a mousy bookworm really fall in love with a rugged carpenter who doesn’t even like to read?
