Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling author of the Farmers’ Market Mysteries and the Country Cooking School Mysteries introduces readers to Star City, Utah, and a little shop called the Rescued Word...

Star City is known for its slopes and its powder. But nestled in the valley of this ski resort town is a side street full of shops that specialize in the simple charms of earlier eras. One of those shops is the Rescued Word, where Chester Henry and his adult granddaughter Clare lovingly repair old typewriters and restore old books. Who ever thought their quaint store would hold the key to some modern-day trouble?

When a stranger to town demands they turn over an antique Underwood typewriter they’re repairing for a customer, Clare fears she may need to be rescued. A call to the police scares the man off, but later Clare finds his dead body in the back alley. What about a dusty old typewriter could possibly be worth killing for?

Paige Shelton Dangerous Type Mystery

I am so pleased I found A Dangerous Type Mystery series by Paige Shelton. From the first book I was drawn to the characters and the stories. Couldn’t wait to read another in the series. I was also inspired to find my fathers Underwood #5 and see if it was still operational. Alas, it had not been stored properly and would have been very expensive to repair. I was able to get my hands on a Remington Rand Streamliner portable typewriter from 1941, the last year they were manufactured before Remington Rand joined the war effort during World War 11. What a joy to re-learn to type without looking at my hands. I found a ream of typewriter paper and have been sending typed letters to family and friends. After so many months in shelter at home status, my house is clean, many books read. Paige Shelton not only gave us all the wonderful book series, but gave me a long lost activity I haven’t done in decades that I have had a great time re-learning.
