    Mary finds a rare handwritten poem in the book donation box. She takes it to an antiue dealer to find out if it is real and the poem disappears. The dealer’s assistant also disappears. Mary had to find out what happened to him and where the poem is before she can figure out who really owns it.

    #7 My favorite bookstore owner has a new mystery to solve. A handwritten poem is found in a box of books someone has donated and then it disappears at the same time as the minister's nephew. Could they be related events? You know Mary is going to search for evidence and find out the truth with her sister Betty and friend Henry....and God's help.

    Book 7 in the Secrets of Mary's Bookshop series. Each of these books reads well as a stand alone. They are published by Guideposts so are clean cozies with a strong Christian faith thread through each. There are no murders in any of them.

When she takes it to her friend Lincoln, an archivist, to have it checked for authenticity, it is stolen from Lincoln's office. Who is behind the theft and why? Several suspects from the citizens of the cozy town of Ivy Bay. Plenty of twists and turns that kept me guessing til almost the end of the book.

    Overall this is a fantastic series! The characters are quirky and fun, and relatable. I really enjoy reading book series that are light, funny, and share much needed lessons. Set in an idyllic setting, I can picture it clearly due to the all the details provided. All of the books in the series hold my attention - I don't want to put them down until I know how the mystery ends! Overall this is a fantastic series!

    A little light reading for my lunch breaks. Mystery was a little unbelievable with a character who disappeared for a couple of weeks as the main suspect; the explanation for the disappearance was a unconvincing. But for those who like "clean" reads this is a good one. I did like the bit of historical knowledge on America the Beautiful and the poem it is based upon. A little light reading for my lunch breaks.

    I honestly forgot that this was a multi author series because each story just flows together. It amazes me the wealth of forgiveness in this community. Someone does something wrong and the community comes to their aid to help anyway they can. The only thing that bothers me is the "I'm better than you" crowd. Just because they have money or they have a family name don't make you any better. I honestly forgot that this was a multi author series because each story just flows together.

    This takes place in the spring. The story is about a poem, a missing person, an inn, and theft. There is also a birthday party and a special present. I enjoyed the mystery, but I liked the birthday part better. Those characters were more likeable.

    I certainly read this one out of order, but I do have 5 others of this series. I know I will enjoy them all and I will start with the first one next time. It was well written and it was also basically a stand alone book because I did not feel lost reading #7 before I read #1.

    This book # 8, deserves 3 1/2 stars., this story was filled with many emotions giving the reader an "insight" in how sometimes, our past experiences shape how we react and speak to others....A good lesson!

    I started this book with great hopes: the whole idea of a bookstore and recovered historic documents is so exciting and has such potential! Instead, I could not get past the sophomoric writing style of the author. I could expand on that, but only at the risk of insulting the many readers who love her works and who are perfectly happy with ...oh, I'd just better shut up.

    A poem and a man go missing at the same time. Are they connected?
