Summary

When corpses clutching poems begin turning up around Storyton Hall, resort manager Jane Steward is on the trail of someone exercising poetic license to kill . . .

As Jane eagerly anticipates the wedding of her best friend Eloise Alcott, Storyton Hall is overrun with poets in town to compete for a coveted greeting card contract. They're everywhere, scrawling verses on cocktail napkins in the reading rooms or seeking inspiration strolling the Poet's Walk, a series of trails named after famous authors. But the Tennyson Trail leads to a grim surprise: a woman's corpse drifting in a rowboat on a lake, a crumpled copy of "The Lady of Shallot" in her lifeless fist.

When a second body is discovered, also holding a page from a poetry book, a recurring MO emerges. Fortunately, Jane is well versed in sleuthing and won't rest until she gives the killer a taste of poetic justice . . .

Nice addition to the series

In this 8th book of Ellery Adams’ Book Retreat series, poets have gathered at Storyton Hall for a competition. The winner gets cash and a job with a leading greeting card company. Competition is fierce and someone will do anything to eliminate the best writers. It’s a good set up. Some surprises, but not my favorite of the series. It’s a little sappy with the romance and love poetry. I like how Jane’s boys are growing up and becoming care takers of the place and protecting their mom.
