Book four of The Secrets of Mary's Bookshop series by Guideposts.
This book was so good that I didn't want it to end. Besides a great mystery, it had a very helpful Christian message about not judging people's actions or reactions toward you. Often there is something far different going on than you'd think, and this book conveys that message in the form of a wonderful, warm story.
