Book Cover: Murder on the BooksRecommendation by Dimitris Passas

In the third installment of the sensational Modern Midwife Mysteries, Christine Knapp’s beloved protagonist, Maeve, returns to investigate a double mystery that involves murder and theft in Langford, New England. The author delivers an absorbing story laden with the minutiae of the protagonist’s family and professional life.

Still recovering from the fallout of the events that took place in the previous book (Murder on the Widow’s Walk), Maeve, now eight months pregnant, stumbles upon a dead body when she visits the local library. The library director’s cause of death remains a puzzle, and Maeve is quickly drawn into the conundrum. Who would want to hurt an innocent librarian? At the same time, it seems that the senior residents in the Hanville Grove Center are missing precious pieces of jewelry, and everything indicates that a thief is lurking in the shadows. With the help of her trusted sister Meg, Maeve will embark on a crusade to find justice for the victims and restore the balance in the seaside town of Langford in her own distinctive way.

Knapp has worked as a nurse-midwife for several years, and her professional experience proves to be the catalyst for the superb characterization of Maeve. MURDER ON THE BOOKS is an animated crime novel, blending mystery and family life, that will win you over from the first few pages.
