Once Upon a Seaside Murder

by Kathleen Costa
& Maggie Blackburn

Summer Merriweather is a professor of Shakespearean literature at a Virginia university on sabbatical. Six months ago, she was in England researching details for a book she hoped to publish, but she received tragic news that would redirect her life forever. Her mother, Hildy, passed away from a suspected heart attack, and Summer inherited not only her Brigid’s Island bookshop, Beach Reads, but an African gray parrot, Mr. Darcy, as well.
