When Olivia Limoges and other Oyster Bay patrons of the arts sponsor a retreat for famous storytellers, one of them is going to have a very unhappy ending…
Olivia thought gathering some of the most renowned storytellers in one place would be a nice, simple way for herself and the Bayside Book Writers to appreciate their talents. But things take a dark turn when the most famous storyteller in the nation—the captivating performer Violetta Devereaux—announces onstage that she will meet her end in Oyster Bay.
When Violetta is discovered murdered after the show, everyone involved with the retreat becomes a suspect. There are rumors that Violetta, who grew up in extreme poverty in the Appalachian Mountains, possessed an invaluable treasure. Now Chief Rawlings and the Bayside Book Writers must work at a frenzied pace to solve the crime before someone closes the book on them.

The Books By The Bay Mystery series continues to get better and better. Ellery Adams is unafraid to challenge the reader with intricatly developed characters and complex relationships between those characters. She pulls emotions from the reader with such skill that the reader is fully involved with the characters before he knows the involvement has taken place. I enjoy each book more than the previous and anxiously await the release of the next installment!
