Praise

Praise for The Bodies in the Library

“This series debut will delight lovers of literary-themed romance and mystery; the perfect companion, of course, is the nearly eponymous Christie work, but fans of Gabrielle Zevin’s The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry (2014) should also be steered toward Wingate’s latest”—Booklist
 
“Cozy Mystery fans, rejoice! The Bodies in the Library is the first in a fresh and lovely new mystery series by Marty Wingate that checks off some of my favorite boxes: a library of rare mystery novels; a setting steeped in history; lots of intriguing characters; and a valiant cat named Bunter. The plot gently unfolds as our spunky protagonist gathers clues—with a little help from Dame Agatha and a benevolent ghost—in order to solve a rather coldblooded murder that kept me turning pages and guessing to the very end.”—Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author of The Book Supremacy
 
“Hayley Burke thought her new job at the First Edition Society would be a walk around the Royal Crescent, that is until bodies start piling up in the library. Marty Wingate’s smart new mystery, The Bodies In The Library, is better than a buttered scone and a pure delight.”—Lorraine Bartlett, New York Times bestselling author of Yule Be Dead
 
“A book lover’s delight! Marty Wingate has crafted a perfect cozy mystery! Set in Bath, England, everything is at stake for the intrepid amateur sleuth, Hayley Burke, as she must solve the mystery of who murdered a member of an Agatha Christie fan fiction writing club before the book is closed on her new career as curator to the exquisite library of the First Edition Society. Engaging, suspenseful, and smart! I thoroughly enjoyed The Bodies in the Library.”—Jenn McKinlay, New York Times Bestselling author of Word to the Wise
 
The Bodies in the Library has all the best elements of a classic cozy; a charming British setting, a beautiful Georgian house, a collection of aspiring writers with a love of Agatha Christie’s novels, a dead body in the library and a reluctant—but resourceful—amateur sleuth in Haley Burke.  Engaging characters, a clever plot and yes, there’s even a cat! What more could a mystery-lover ask for? Marty Wingate’s new series is off to an entertaining start. I’ll be watching for the next book!”—Sofie Kelly, New York Times Bestselling author of A Night’s Tale
 
“Marty Wingate clearly knows her mysteries well and seamlessly weaves all the traditions of the genre into this clever new series. Hayley Burke’s love affair with Golden Age mysteries will bring back happy memories for cozy readers.”—Sheila Connolly, New York Times Bestselling Author
