Great spoof of gothic/romance/mysteries.
Dorothy Cannell spins another wonderfully funny tale of romance and suspicious death, that proves that love can be dangerous indeed.
This is a great one! Funny & exciting.
Another chapter in the saga of Ellie Haskell. Life should be a cinch with a new Swiss nanny and Mrs. Malloy as daily help, so Ellie tackles the Library League and stumbles onto the corpse of Miss Bunch, the librarian, in the fiction stacks. What does her death have to do with the hundredth anniversary of the death of Hector Rigglesworth, the library ghost? And how is Karisma, the male romance cover model, involved in all this?
Is the library ghost responsible for the sudden deaths of Chitterton Fells residents?
Another fun read in the series.
From back of book:
Any day now stay at home mum Ellie Haskell plans to slim down, kick the romance reading habit and resume her career. But not today, for when she arrives the Chitterton Fells Libray League meeting, she stumbles upon a corpse; Miss Bunch, the librarian, lies sprawled next to an open copy of "The Dream Lover". Could she have been a victim of the library ghost, a man with a grudge against the romantic novels that kept his daughters forever holding out for the perfect suitor: It is a question that haunts Ellie -- especially when a sexy male romance cover model hits town and strange goings on begin. When a second mysterious death occurs, Ellie knows she must unmask the culprit -- before she herself meets a sinister and decidedly unromantic fate!
