BOOK LAUNCH PARTY:  Elizabeth Buzzelli, She Stopped for Death

WHEN:  Saturday, January 14, 2:00 to 4:00 pm

WHERE:  Horizon Books, Traverse City, Michigan

Jenny Weston and her mother, Dora, have been receiving strange midnight visits. Bear Falls’s own elusive and highly secretive poet, Emily Sutton, has lived her life cloistered with her sister in a house at the edge of Pewee Swamp. But now, Emily’s started leaving scraps of poetry in Dora’s Little Library, and Dora makes it her mission to befriend the sheltered woman.

Meanwhile Zoe Zola – almost-famous author, Little Person, and the Weston’s quirky next-door neighbor – is hard at work on a new book, this one about the inner life of Emily Dickinson. And once again, Zoe’s literary work starts making uncanny connections with the events in her own world as Emily Sutton reemerges into society. But Zoe begins to suspect things aren’t anywhere near normal at Emily’s swamp house or in the lives of the people she claims have abandoned her…until looking further into the poet’s half-truths leads Zoe and Jenny to an unexpected murder.

The chaos surrounding the ensuing investigation grows even more hectic with Emily’s increasingly erratic behavior, the arrival of a young woman searching for her missing poet uncle, and yet another betrayal in Jenny’s love life. And only poetry can set the truth free in Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli’s charming second Little Library mystery, She Stopped for Death.
