Book description from GoodReads:

Jordan Kelly is delighted to make money tracking down rare and valuable mystery novels for her employer, Vera Van Alst, an avid collector and the most difficult woman in Harrison Falls, New York. But now her boss’s complete set of Dorothy Sayers is missing, and finding them may lead Jordan to a murder suitable for Sayers’s esteemed sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey…

When Jordan manages to locate her boss’s missing books, they are in the possession of Randolph Adams, an elderly man in a nearby town. Offering a valuable Hemingway first edition as an incentive, Jordan thinks she’s about to seal the deal—but some of Randolph’s relatives think he should hold out for more.

My review – 5/5 Stars (originally posted on GoodReads on 3/20/17) 

I loved this book 🙂

The mystery was really good and, as with the first book, I really enjoyed reading about Jordan, her uncles, and her job, Officer Smiley and Lance. I missed having Jordan’s bestie more in the book (she was away in Africa), but it did leave room for a new want-to-be new friend character that I will probably find the most memorable from this book over time.

I loved hearing more about the uncle’s house/shop and the secret passageways. Makes me wish I had some at my place.
