A Death at Seascape House Publisher's Summary

Meet Jemima Jago: librarian, keen sailor, dedicated tea drinker…super sleuth? 

Jemima Jago has moved back home to the enchanting Isles of Scilly. Ready for a fresh start in a quaint coastal village, she can be found in the stacks of Cornwall’s oldest library by day and stargazing in the cove at night. Jem finds the slower pace of life suits her perfectly, until she stumbles across a very curious crime.....   

On a hunt for a stolen book, Jem instead finds busybody and notorious gossip Edith Reddy dead in her crumbling clifftop cottage. Maybe the island isn’t as peaceful as she thought! But worse is to come when bumbling Sergeant Anderson decides that, as the first person on the scene, Jem must have been up to no good.  

Ever resourceful and endlessly daring, Jem launches her own investigation, determined to clear her name. She soon realizes that many of the island’s eccentric residents had reasons to want Edith out of the way. Did Declan, the weary waiter, finally kill off his most difficult customer? Did Bart, the fishy ferryman, want to rid the island of its grouchiest resident? Or was it Lissa, the friend turned foe, who got rid of Edith?  

When Jem discovers a years’ overdue library book hidden in a drawer at Edith’s home, she’s sure she’s on the right track. But can she set the record straight before the book is closed on her too? 

A gripping and fun cozy mystery from the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Emma Jameson. Brimming with intrigue and warm wit, fans of Agatha Christie, Faith Martin, and Betty Rowlands will love A Death at Seascape House.
