Star City is known for its slopes and its powder. But nestled in the valley of this ski resort town is a side street full of shops that specialize in the simple charms of earlier eras. One of those shops is the Rescued Word, where Chester Henry and his adult granddaughter Clare lovingly repair old typewriters and restore old books. Who ever thought their quaint store would hold the key to some modern-day trouble?

When a stranger to town demands they turn over an antique Underwood typewriter they’re repairing for a customer, Clare fears she may need to be rescued. A call to the police scares the man off, but later Clare finds his dead body in the back alley. What about a dusty old typewriter could possibly be worth killing for?

  1. My first hook is the cover and cute puns for many of the titles. The next hook is the female characters allowing me to see myself in the lead. Another hook is the light story...yes, murder and often sticky situations, but no gore and rarely harsh language, and enough clues for me to be an outside detective. The final hook has been following the authors, even texting with them and being part of a fun "cozy mystery" community. kat8762@aol.com

  2. I like the quirky characters and to learn about the small towns. Also no blood and guts and no cursing. I like series as I like to see how the characters grow. Thanks for the chance!

  3. I love cozies because I tend to get involved in the characters lives and like to see what they're up to

  4. I can't wait to read this. I love cozies, it's so much fun to meet the characters, and I love the "coziness".dnrocker@yahoo.com

  5. Just take everyone else's comments and add me too! Cozy mysteries are so darn.... cozy!


  6. No matter what genre the book is, the cover of course is the first to catch my interest. The main reason I like cozies is because they keep my mind working while I'm reading, trying to figure out who is responsible. If the book also includes recipes, crafts, etc. all the better. robeader53@yahoo.com

  7. I have to say the covers will catch my attention. Then the snypsosis of the storyline. This book is in my most wanted to read wish list. :-)

    Thanks for a chance.

  8. The covers tend to draw me in but when I started avidly reading a few years ago it was the lighthearted fun that usually accompanies the murder and mystery. Oh and I love a good puzzle to solve so I'm usually trying to figure it out as I read along. Paige Shelton has become one of my favorite authors in recent months and I can't wait to read this one!

  9. The delightful settings and the unique characters and their lives. It allows me to enjoy without the stress. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  10. Cozies provide me with a wonderful escape. The artwork is exceptional when I gaze at the cover, but the intriguing storyline draws me in. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

  11. Cozy mysteries are clean reads, I get tired of picking up a book and find out it so full of garbage.


  12. I am really looking forward to this and would love the chance to win! I always like the off stage element of the majority of the violence.

  13. I really enjoy reading cozy mysteries and I think the cover is usually what catches my eye and makes me pick up the book to see what it's about. Would really like to read this book (love the cover).

  14. I have to say I am sucked in by the covers. But I really like how the characters are ordinary people, the heroines seem to be no different than me, and things are never too gory or scary or sexual. But the covers are so much fun!

  15. I don't remember what first drew me to the cozy mysteries, but what keeps me hooked are the characters. I enjoy reading about people I can relate to and their friends. The covers help! I watch "procedural" episodes on TV, I like the simplicity(?0 of the cozy worlds.


  16. A friend introduced me to cozies many years ago---but I stayed with them because I liked the mystery without all the gore of other genres.
