Any day now, stay-at-home mum Ellie Haskell plans to slim down, kick the romance-reading habit, and resume her career. But not today, for when she arrives for the Chitterton Fells Library League meeting, she stumbles upon a corpse: Miss Bunch, the librarian, lies sprawled next to an open copy of The Dream Lover. Could she have been a victim of the library ghost, a man with a grudge against the romantic novels that kept his daughters forever holding out for the perfect suitor? It is a question that haunts Ellie--especially when a sexy male romance cover model hits town and strange goings-on begin. When a second mysterious death occurs, Ellie knows she must unmask the culprit...before she herself meets a sinister and decidedly unromantic fate!
