Mystery Review - Murder in the Mystery Suite

Hey y'all, 

Today I'm reviewing Murder in the Mystery Suite by Ellery Adams. 

Summary from GoodReads: WHO WOULD RESORT TO MURDER?

Tucked away in the rolling hills of rural western Virginia is the storybook resort of Storyton Hall, catering to book lovers who want to get away from it all. To increase her number of bookings, resort manager Jane Steward has decided to host a Murder and Mayhem week so that fans of the mystery genre can gather together for some role-playing and fantasy crime solving.

But when the winner of the scavenger hunt, Felix Hampden, is found dead in the Mystery Suite, and the valuable book he won as his prize is missing, Jane realizes one of her guests is an actual murderer. Amid a resort full of fake detectives, Jane is bound and determined to find a real-life killer. There’s no room for error as Jane tries to unlock this mystery before another vacancy opens up… 

Review after the jump! 

Review: I thought this book had everything. I mean, a book resort? Yes, please! The characters were interesting and there were a lot of neat secondary characters. The setting in a small mountain town was nice, I was even interested in the murder and who could have committed it. Do you hear the ‘but’ coming? BUT, a secret guardian of literature? That was a bridge too far for me. Verdict: Not for me. 

Stars: 2.5/5
