Sisters Ellie and Meg Christie share a love of books, reading, and the Book Chalet – their family’s historic bookshop tucked midway up a scenic Colorado mountain. But romance? That’s another story.

So when their cousin signs them up for her newest business venture – matchmaking based on bookish tastes – the sisters approach their blind double dates with foot-dragging dread. And while Ellie’s date meets her low expectations, Meg’s match, a book-loving romantic straight out of classic literature, is a charming surprise . . .

. . . until he turns up murdered the next morning.

As the last known person to have seen the victim alive, Meg becomes a prime suspect in his death and soon the sisters must sift through secrets deeper than the February snowfall and once again summon their inner Miss Marple to sleuth out the truth before it’s too late.

The Christie sisters are back and this time they’re flirting with cold-hearted crime when bookish matchmaking turns into a date with death. Perfect for fans of Victoria Walters and Fiona Leitch.
