Murder in the Storybook Cottage by Ellery Adams Book Summary


Storyton Hall, Virginia, is a top travel destination for book lovers and the perfect spot for literary events. But as a children’s book publisher hosts a gathering there, some folks aren’t going to live—happier ever after or otherwise . . .
Jane Steward’s resort is hopping—not only is Peppermint Press’s conference in full swing, there are also lots of families staying on the premises, bringing their kids to events like a scavenger hunt through the Fairy Tale Forest.
Then a woman dressed like Little Red Riding Hood is found dead from a plot device straight out of a fairy tale—with a rare and valuable copy of Grimm’s Fairy Tales in her basket. Not long after, a second victim is killed, with yet another treasure nearby—a volume by Hans Christian Andersen worth thousands of dollars. It looks like a big bad wolf may be lurking among the guests, and Jane can’t just wait for a handsome prince to come to the rescue . . .
“Readers will find themselves wanting to live in Storyton, no matter how many people end up dead there.”Suspense  Magazine on Murder in the Locked Library

Absolutely loved. I have to admit to absolutely loving this series. The setting, a resort for bibliophiles, is a dream location for me. And, to have mystery, and intrigue mixed in makes for an enjoyable read. This new edition to the series is a home run right from the start. As the title implies, a murder takes place in a cottage that is to be a new children’s section of the resort. The owner of the resort, along with the help of the local police, her friends, and her staff, try to help find solve the murder; all the while trying to navigate a book publishing conference, and a family story themed event. The thing I love most about this series is the characters, and how well they are written. Even the minor characters, and the one that are brief for the story, are very well rounded, and full of life. I feel as if I am having a reunion of good friends every time I delve into the author’s works. If you have not read the others in this series, I would highly recommend that you do. Although you could read it as a stand alone, there are many nuances to the characters and their previous background that really needs to be read before you tackle this one. If you love this author’s other series, I highly suggest you give this one a try, as you will be delighted by this cozy. And, if you have read the others inThe Book Retreat series, run, do not walk to your nearest bookstore, or library and grab a copy. You will not be disappointed.


Murder meet fairy tales. Storyton Hall is the location for Peppermint Press Children’s Book Publishers Conference. Jane Stewart believes this is the perfect time to open the resorts Fairy Tale Forest for the children of the guest. She takes her best friends on a pre-view tour of the forest only to find the body of a real-life Red Riding Hood. As in the children’s fairytale “Red” met with an unsavory character in the forest. This mysterious young lady is not a guest of the resort and Jane can not figure out why she is in one of the cabins. Jane and the Fins need to discover why this lady was found at the resort and why someone would want to kill her. I love this series and this book is my new favorite. Every time I read one of these books, I want to visit Storyton despite the murders. Author Ellery Adams is wonderful at describing the setting. You feel as if you are transported to the resort. When I went to college, I studied elementary education. My favorite class was Children’s Literature. This conference would be one I would love to attend (second only to a mystery conference). Jane, her friends, and the Fins are wonderful characters. I love how they help one another and support each other through good and bad times. I feel as if I am reading about a group of my beloved friends. I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and in no way, I have been influenced by anyone.


Jane's dilemma. Jane was so happy welcoming her guests to Storyton Hall. But, the worry and responsibility got quite heavy when a beautiful murder victim was discovered right in the Storybook Hall. Oh ! It's such a puzzle.
