    "Leaving behind tragedies surrounding their wedding at Morrington Hall, travel-worn Stella and Lyndy arrive at the grand Majestic Hotel in York to more misfortune--their stately honeymoon suite has been given away to Horace Wingrove, owner of England's largest confectionery. Stella refuses to let an innocent booking mistake spoil the mood, but her optimism vanishes when Horace suffocates in the room where she and Lyndy should have stayed... Unlike authorities on the scene, Stella can't believe the business magnate's death can be explained away as an accident ... As Stella and Lyndy tour Yorkshire and mingle with royals as husband and wife, they face a sinister mystery that puts their vows to the test"--Dust jacket flap.

    Hannah, Sophie

    "Jane and William are enjoying their honeymoon at an exclusive couples-only resort ... until Jane receives a chilling note warning her to "Beware of the couple at the table nearest to yours." At dinner that night, five other couples are present, and none of their tables is any nearer or farther away than any of the others. It's almost as if someone has set the scene in order to make the warning note meaningless--but why would anyone do that? Jane has no idea. But someone in this dining room will be dead before breakfast, and all the evidence will suggest that no one there that night could have possibly committed the crime"--

  • The Complete Sherlock Holmes: Volume I

    The Complete Sherlock Holmes: Volume I

    Doyle, Arthur Conan

    Starts with Holmes's first appearance. A study in scarlet, a chilling murder novel complete with bloodstained walls and cryptic clues, followed by the baffling The sign of four, which introduces Holmes's cocaine problem and Watson's future wife. The story collections The adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes feature such renowned tales as "A scandal in Bohemia", "The Red-Headed League", and "The Musgrave ritual."

But the public outcry was so great that eight years later he published the masterful The hound of the Baskervilles, which supposedly takes place before Holmes's death.

    Recipes for Love and Murder

    Andrew, Sally

    "A bright new talent makes her fiction debut with this first novel in a delicious crime series set in rural South Africa: a flavorful blend of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and Goldy Schulz, full of humor, romance, and recipes, and featuring a charming cast of characters. Tannie Maria ("tannie" meaning auntie, the respectful Afrikaans address for a woman older than you) is a middle-aged widow who likes to cook and eat. She shares her culinary love through her work as a recipe columnist for the local paper, until the Gazette decides its readers are hungrier for advice on matters of the heart than for lunch and dinner ideas. Tannie Maria doesn't like the change but soon discovers she has a knack and a passion for helping people. Of course, a recipe is always part of the remedy she offers. Assisting other people with their problems, Tannie Maria is eventually forced to face her own issues, especially when the troubles of those she helps touch on the pain of her own past like a woman who contacts her desperate to escape her abusive husband. When the woman is murdered, Tannie Maria becomes dangerously entwined in the investigation, despite the best efforts of a handsome detective named Kannemeyer, who is determined to keep her safe. Suddenly, this practical, down-to-earth woman is involved in something much more sinister than perfecting her chocolate cake recipe . . ." -- ONIX annotation.
