Gemma owns a bookstore that specializes in Sherlock Holmes, complete with memorabilia and odds and ends for the tourist trade. Her best friend, Jayne, owns a bakery and tearoom next door. Business is booming and a touring group of bridge-playing ladies come to the bookstore and tearoom. The mystery begins when a priceless book in found on the shelves in the bookstore after the ladies leave. Add a murder here and there, a former boyfriend detective back in town and you have a fabulous story that is full of fun and action. I loved this cozy mystery! The author has developed rich, realistic characters to go with a carefully woven plot. I recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries with a great plot to have you reading long into the night!
