Marie visited West Heath, Weoley Castle, Kings Norton and Yardley Wood Libraries.
Marie was talking about and reading from her book The Library Ladies and the Body Behind the Library
. This cosy mystery is a light hearted, amusing story involving the ghost of an ex-library assistant and some amateur sleuthing among a group of friends. Marie also signed copies of her book at the end of her event.
About the book
When the library ladies discover the decomposing body of an ex library assistant behind their little library, they are happy to let the police investigate – well mostly. The police think the victim died accidentally while planning to break into a house behind the library and scale down their investigation. But the library ladies know differently! With enthusiastic snooping and determination to get justice for poor Barry, the eclectic bunch set out to find out what happened with the only clues being a shopping trolley coin from Tesco and the ghost of the victim.
