It's the oldest bookshop in a town full of bookshops; rambling and disordered, full of treasures if you look hard. Jude found one of the treasures when she visited last summer, the high point of a miserable vacation. Now, in the depths of winter, when she has to run away, Lowell's chaotic bookshop in that backwater of a town is the safe place she runs to. Jude needs a bolt-hole; Lowell needs an assistant and, when an affordable rental is thrown in too, life begins to look up. The gravedigger's cottage isn't perfect for a woman alone but at least she has quiet neighbors. Quiet, but not silent. The long dead and the books they left behind both have tales to tell and the dusty rooms of the bookshop are not the haven they seem to be. Lowell's past and Jude's present are a dangerous cocktail of secrets and lies and someone is coming to light the taper that could destroy everything. Praise:Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

When I read that Jude ran away to a book store, I knew I had to read this book. The cover does seem to suggest a horror story, but this is not the case. It's a story of family, lost, found, and made. It's about secrets, forgiveness, love, and trust. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Charming but not very mysterious.

Not the scary book I thought it was going to be. Instead, it was insightful, heart-warming, mysterious, and filled with so many twists and turns it kept me guessing until the very end.
