Violet has now settled into her role as the caretaker and getting into her daily routine of minding the shop, the tree and teaching at the local college. She is also reconnecting with her old friend Lacey and trying to figure out what is to much and to little with her ex-boyfirend Nathan who is now mayor of their small village.
If her plate weren't full enough it certainly starts to overflow when one of the fellow Red Inkers is found dead in the book shop. The Red Inkers are a close knit writing group that meets in the bookshop weekly after hours. It isn't long before the police settle in on a another Red Inker as a suspect.
But that won't stop Violet from getting in between the handsome Chief Rainwater and her friend. She will go to great lengths to clear her name.
In the meantime, Violet will also have to contemplate a series of issues in her personal life that revolve around multiple men. In the end it will leave her with more questions then answers and looking down the barrel of a gun.
I enjoyed reading Violet's next stage in her role at the book shop and showing her strong willed character. Like all women she falters when it comes to men, but at least she is smart about it. There is a great cast of characters in this book, her Grandma Daisy, Sadie, Lanney and Chief Rainwater as well.
It is a faced pace read, keeps your wanting to know what happens in the next chapter.
Looking forward to Violet's next story.....
