The New York Times–bestselling cozy mystery series continues at a Virginia book-themed getaway where there are multiple murders to solve.

But when the earth is dug up to start laying the spa’s foundation, something else comes to the surface—a collection of unusual bones and the ragged remnants of a very old book. The attendees of the Rare Book Conference are eager to assist Jane with this unexpected historical mystery—until a visitor meets an untimely end in the Henry James Library.
