I’ll be heading to the Eastern Shore and one of my favorite towns, Oxford, next Saturday to visit Mystery Loves Company for a book signing for The Letters in the Books from noon – 2 p.m. Oxford also happens to be the setting of my third novel, Inn Significant, and this will be my second time visiting Mystery Loves Company. I’ll have copies of that book, Little Milestones (which is set in Oxford and St. Michaels), and of course, copies of my newest release.
And while my novel isn’t a mystery, it’s set in Annapolis, and there is one element of “surprise” or “mystery” to the book. Without spoiling it, the question is this: Who wanted to harm Meg’s bookstore?
The Letters in the Books is a story about a bookstore owner and the ways in which she chooses to lift people up with the words she writes in letters that she slips inside the books of her customers. Four other main characters receive letters, and what unfolds is the story of how these five people find each other.
If you live on the Eastern Shore or can make the drive to Oxford, you will enjoy perusing Kathy’s bookstore. As well, you can take a tour of the town, eat ice cream at Scottish Highland Creamery, stroll the park, visit The Strand beach area, and dine at restaurants with views of the water.
I hope you’ll come visit me. I just may slip a letter inside your book.
