In Elizabeth Penney's Chapter and Curse, Molly Kimball is used to cracking open books . . . but when a poetry reading ends in murder she must use her skills to crack the case.

Librarian Molly Kimball and her mother, Nina, need a change. So when a letter arrives from Nina's Aunt Violet in Cambridge, England, requesting their help running the family bookshop, they jump at the chance.

Thomas Marlowe-Manuscripts and Folios, is one of the oldest bookshops in Cambridge, and-unfortunately-customers can tell. When Molly and Nina arrive, spring has come to Cambridge and the famed Cambridge Literary Festival is underway. Determined to bring much-needed revenue to the bookstore, Molly invites Aunt Violet's college classmate and famed poet Persephone Brightwell to hold a poetry reading in the shop. But the event ends in disaster when a guest is found dead-with Molly's great-aunt's knitting needle used as the murder weapon. While trying to clear Violet and keep the struggling shop afloat, Molly sifts through secrets past and present, untangling a web of blackmail, deceit, and murder.

I Totally LOVED everything about Chapter and Curse by Elizabeth Penney! It is the debut book in the Cambridge Bookshop Series and it is a perfect cozy mystery. The characters are likable, down-to-earth, and interesting. Molly Kimball and her Mom, Nina move to Cambridge England to help Nina’s Aunt Violet run the family bookshop. The bookshop needs some updating and more publicity. Molly suggests hosting a popular poet to do a reading and Violet’s classmate Persephone is asked to read from her new book. Several of their old classmates are at the reading along with a large crowd. The event ends abruptly when a guest is found dead in the garden. Molly and her new friend Kiernan find the body. The other characters, George, Daisy,, Chris and Sir John are all great characters as well and the family and friends added to my enjoyment of this book. The mystery was interesting and kept me guessing for most of the book and I enjoyed the ending. The audiobook is narrated by Henrietta Meire and was extremely well done and made the characters all come to life! I couldn’t put it down! I won a copy of the audiobook on a Facebook giveaway. I already had it on my To Read List. This review is my own honest opinion. #ElizabethPenney #ChapterAndCurse #TantirMedia
