An unsolved murder from the 1930s.
A ghost story to explain the impossible crime.
A dead man in the haunted library.
And no way for the authorities to reach the survivors until the snowstorm clears...

A snowstorm waylays Jaya Jones and Tamarind Ortega. It seems almost too good to be true that they find rooms for the night in beautiful old inn--until they find a dead man clutching an Agatha Christie novel in the secluded hotel's library. Worse yet, Tamarind is accused of the crime.

To clear her friend, Jaya must delve into the history of the hotel's haunted library. The present-day mystery is eerily similar to a mysterious unsolved death in the 1930s--could it be the work of the library's avenging ghost?

If you've never met Jaya Jones or been on one of her adventures, this is a great place to start. And lucky you, you have the whole series (and the novella!) to look forward to!

Excellent Jaya Jones novella. It starts up where the last book left off, with Jaya coming home for a belated Thanksgiving. But you don't have to have read the previous books to enjoy this one. Very cleverly written locked room tale. Jaya uses her historical knowledge abilities to figure it out. Looking forward to the next novel in the series.

a cleverly plotted locked room mystery THE LIBRARY GHOST OF TANGLEWOOD HALL by Gigi Pandian The Fifth and a Half Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Trying to make it back home in time for Thanksgiving, Jaya and Tamarind are grounded by a Colorado snowstorm. A meeting with a man who looks somewhat like a Hollywood styled vampire procures them an invitation to join a group going to an inn off the beaten track in order to avoid sleeping in the airport. The inn has an interesting history, including being home to an avenging ghost. Screams in the night send everyone running to the library which they find locked from the inside. Gaining entry, they discover the vampire looking author quite dead. Has the avenging ghost struck again? I love getting another glimpse into Jaya Jones' world. What a fun idea to see what happens while not on a big adventure, but rather, returning from one and simply trying to get home in time for Thanksgiving. We only know two characters going in, Jaya and Tamarind, so a reader can jump right in without prior knowledge of the series. Of course, those of us who read this series can appreciate more nuances and enjoy it even more. Arriving at the Tanglewood Inn, Gigi Pandian creates a setting evocative of ghost stories and Golden Age mysteries, at once haunting, spine tingling, and cozy! The mystery is fiendishly clever and great fun. A dead body in a locked library with an early edition Agatha Christie mystery and an avenging ghost as a suspect, what's not to love?!? My only gripe is that it's a short story and so is...short! Such an atmospheric setting deserves to be explored more fully and at length. Perhaps Jaya will return for a visit? THE LIBRARY GHOST OF TANGLEWOOD HALL is a cleverly plotted locked room mystery. This short story is a delightful morsel to keep you going until the next full length Jaya Jones adventure is released.

A clever mix of Murder on the Orient Express and In the Name of the Rose--snow bound potential killers and poison where it doesn't belong (basic story from the Arabian Tales). Add in Gigi Pandian's unique style and you have a very satisfying short story.
