It’s cozy mystery time and Librarian Jemima Jago is on the case. While on vacation in The Isle of Scilly, and enjoying time with friends. Because Candlewick Castle is on the white sandy beach her favorite things to do while there, is swimming, sailing and of course sunbathing. But when the body of well to do business man, Hermie Castleberry washes up on shore Jem doesn’t want to get involved, but she is left with no choice when her old flame, Ryse Tremayne is arrested for murder. She jumps into action and won’t give up until she proves Ryse is innocent and uncovers who actually murdered Hermie. This whodunnit was so much fun to read. The plot twists and turns kept me flying through the pages. I loved how the murderer wasn’t known until the very end. Just when you think you have it figured out, something else pops up, and keeps you guessing. The vivid description of Candlewick Castle and its surroundings made the book a wonderful escape. I highly recommend this series, it is definitely a must read.

Thank you Emma Jameson for an awesome continuation to this wonderful series. The characters were relatable and the story was very captivating and fun. I loved the banter between the characters….well done. What a fantastic addition to this much loved series.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Librarian Jemima Jago is enjoying a peaceful summer in the Isles of Scilly – until a puzzling crime comes in with the tide…

Between her work in Cornwall’s oldest library and catching up with old friends over tea and chocolate biscuits, Jemima Jago is spending the season the only way she knows how: sunbathing, swimming and sailing. But her postcard-perfect summer is turned upside down when the body of well-to-do businessman Hermie Castleberry is found on the sweeping white sands at the foot of Candlewick Castle.

Jem doesn’t mean to get involved, but when her old flame Rhys Tremayne is arrested for murder, she springs into action to prove his innocence. With her gift for uncovering hard-to-find information, Jem discovers Hermie had been keeping secrets and ruffling a few feathers in the ordinarily tranquil islands. Did the quiet wife, the belittled business partner or the slimy salesman want Hermie out of the way?

The discovery of a pair of silver gloves by little dog Buck could be just the clue Jem needs to crack the case. But can she catch the real culprit, and keep her heart in check, before the killer sends her down to Davy Jones’ locker too?
