Body in the Books by Heather Huffman
Mystery

Sometimes, owning a bookstore can be murder. When Nora Jones inherits a dusty old bookshop from her estranged uncle, she moves to St. Augustine to tie up loose ends and maybe learn a bit about the man she never knew. Only what first appeared to be a heart attack turns out to be murder, and there’s no shortage of suspects. The detective assigned to the case might be handsome and charming, but Nora’s convinced he’s chasing down the wrong lead. With her newly-inherited Greyhound named Margo and a quirky band of friends in tow, Nora decides to track down the killer herself. She finds herself in a race to solve the murder before she becomes the next body in the books.

4.6 stars, 129 ratings

A rollicking tale of imperfect people surviving in uncertain times. Larry is a lazy guy with impulse control issues, highly flexible morals, and a dodgy past.

And now the Rapture is here. “A large and colorful cast of characters fills the novel, and their experiences and coping mechanisms in the rapture-altered world give the story a welcome variety of perspectives.” ~Kirkus Reviews
