This is book number 1 in the A Dangerous Type Mystery series.
The New York Times bestselling author of the Farmers’ Market Mysteries and the Country Cooking School Mysteries introduces readers to Star City, Utah, and a little shop called the Rescued Word...
Star City is known for its slopes and its powder. But nestled in the valley of this ski resort town is a side street full of shops that specialize in the simple charms of earlier eras. One of those shops is the Rescued Word, where Chester Henry and his adult granddaughter Clare lovingly repair old typewriters and restore old books. Who ever thought their quaint store would hold the key to some modern-day trouble?
When a stranger to town demands they turn over an antique Underwood typewriter they’re repairing for a customer, Clare fears she may need to be rescued. A call to the police scares the man off, but later Clare finds his dead body in the back alley. What about a dusty old typewriter could possibly be worth killing for?
Paige Shelton is the New York Times bestselling author of the Farmers’ Market Mysteries, including Bushel Full of Murder, Merry Market Murder, and A Killer Maize, and the Country Cooking School Mysteries, including If Onions Could Spring Leeks, If Catfish Had Nine Lives, and If Bread Could Rise to the Occasion.
