The Inn at Holiday Bay: Letters in the Library by [Daley, Kathi]Synopsis:

A heartwarming cozy mystery series about losing everything, taking a chance, and starting again.

After suffering a personal tragedy Abby Sullivan buys a huge old seaside mansion she has never even seen, packs up her life in San Francisco, and moves to Holiday Bay Maine, where she is adopted, quite against her will, by a huge Maine Coon Cat named Rufus, a drifter with her own tragic past named Georgia, and a giant dog with an inferiority complex named Ramos. What Abby thought she needed was alone time to heal. What she ended up with was, an inn she never knew she wanted, a cat she couldn’t seem to convince to leave, and a new family she’d never be able to live without.

In book 2 of the series, Abby finds a bundle of letters which had been written in 1954 in the wall of the library after Lonnie tears it down as part of the remodel. Intrigued by the secret revealed in the letters, Abby and Georgia set out to find the rest of the story.

Meanwhile, Chief Colt Wilder uncovers a new clue relating to the death of a local girl the previous summer. In spite of her vow to focus her time on her writing, Abby finds herself pulled into the tangled web of half truths that may tell a different story than was first believed true.

Join Abby, Georgia, Rufus, and Ramos, as they continue with the remodel on the old mansion, prepare for a busy summer season, and continue to find a new meaning for their lives in the charming small town of Holiday Bay. (Goodreads)


The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and no matter what setting she creates, it is a warm and inviting place.  The characters are well developed and well rounded, and they are people that I would like to visit.

The author is also very talented in creating multiple storylines in her books and then weaving them together perfectly, which she did in this book.  The mysteries are captivating and there are enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing throughout the book. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.   You cannot go wrong picking up a book to read by this author.
