Short Synopsis
In the latest novel in the New York Times bestselling Book Retreat Mystery series, the Medieval Herbalists have come to Storyton Hall to celebrate their passion for plant lore. When a member of the group is discovered dead, Jane must rely on the contents of Storyton's secret library to find the culprit.

Full Synopsis
There is a hidden garden bordering the grounds of Jane Steward's book-themed resort—a garden filled with beautiful but deadly plants such as mandrake and nightshade. Tucked away behind ivy-covered walls and accessible only through a single locked door, as described in the pages of Frances Hodges Burnett's classic novel, the garden is of special interest to Jane's current group of guests, the Medieval Herbalists. But when one of them turns up dead, Jane must discover whether a member of the group has come to Storyton Hall to celebrate their passion for plant lore or to implement a particularly cruel means for murder.

With thousands of books at her disposal, Jane believes that she has the proper materials to solve this deadly problem. If she's wrong, however, she may lose something far more precious than the contents of Storyton's secret library . . .

"What is there not to like about this series, you have a secret book library and the protectors take it very seriously and are trained in hand to hand combat, a book resort, and murder! . . . Johanna Parker does a good job with this series." ---Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!
