Review; Murder in the Storybook Cottage (Book Retreat Mysteries #6) by Ellery Adams

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery Murder in the Storybook Cottage (Book Retreat Mysteries #6) by Ellery Adams through Netgalley. I've now read it and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
In the sixth Book Retreat Mystery by New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams, resort owner Jane Steward has her hands full hosting the Peppermint Press children's book conference when she is sidelined into tracking down a killer who fashions his crimes after fairy tales.

Storyton Hall, Virginia, is a top travel destination for book lovers and the perfect spot for literary events. But as a children's book publisher hosts a gathering there, some folks aren't going to live--happily ever after or otherwise . . .

Jane Steward's resort is hopping--not only is Peppermint Press' conference in full swing, there are also lots of families staying on the premises, bringing their kids to events like a scavenger hunt through the Fairy Tale Forest.

Then a woman dressed like Little Red Riding Hood is found dead from a plot device straight out of a fairy tale--with a rare and valuable copy of Grimm's Fairy Tales in her basket. Not long after, a second victim is killed, with yet another treasure--a volume by Hans Christian Andersen worth thousands of dollars--nearby. It looks like a big bad wolf may be lurking among the guests, and Jane can't just wait for a handsome prince to come to the rescue...

My Thoughts on the Book
Murder in the Storybook Cottage is one of those cosy mysteries that will bring out the inner child and the love love of children's books. I loved some of the main characters and the somewhat slow pace. The plot was well written too. It was overall an enjoyable read.
