The proprietor of Miracle Books in Miracle Springs, North Carolina, Nora Pennington believes that a well-chosen novel can bring healing and hope. But she and the other members of the Secret, Book, and Scone Society know that sometimes practical help is needed too. Such is the case with the reed-thin girl hiding in the fiction section of Nora’s store, wearing a hospital ID and a patchwork of faded bruises. She calls herself Abilene but won’t reveal much else. And when a customer is found dead in an assumed suicide, Nora uncovers a connection that points to Abilene as either a suspect—or another target. After a second death hits town, Nora and her intrepid friends must help the new, greenhorn sheriff discern fact from fiction—and stop a killer intent on bringing another victim’s story to a close…

The 2nd book in the Secret Book and Scone Society and it is just as good as the first, maybe better.  I think the mystery in this book is a bit grittier and the women are in more peril. 

There is a mysterious woman who shows up in town and they all want to help her.  She is malnourished and obviously hiding something.  Each of them have their own reasons for wanting to help and for some it brings up part of their past that they haven't let go of. 

There is also a new Sheriff in town and between this new good looking Sheriff and the sexy paramedic I don't know which way Nora may go. 

Excellent fun read.  And I'm still trying to figure out how to insert myself into the pages of a story so I can go try out some scones and ask Nora for some bibliotherapy.
