Publisher's Summary

Meet Jemima Jago: librarian, keen sailor, dedicated tea drinker…super sleuth? 

Jemima Jago has moved back home to the enchanting Isles of Scilly. Ready for a fresh start in a quaint coastal village, she can be found in the stacks of Cornwall’s oldest library by day and stargazing in the cove at night. Jem finds the slower pace of life suits her perfectly, until she stumbles across a very curious crime.....   

On a hunt for a stolen book, Jem instead finds busybody and notorious gossip Edith Reddy dead in her crumbling clifftop cottage. Maybe the island isn’t as peaceful as she thought! But worse is to come when bumbling Sergeant Anderson decides that, as the first person on the scene, Jem must have been up to no good.  

Ever resourceful and endlessly daring, Jem launches her own investigation, determined to clear her name. She soon realizes that many of the island’s eccentric residents had reasons to want Edith out of the way. Did Declan, the weary waiter, finally kill off his most difficult customer? Did Bart, the fishy ferryman, want to rid the island of its grouchiest resident? Or was it Lissa, the friend turned foe, who got rid of Edith?  

When Jem discovers a years’ overdue library book hidden in a drawer at Edith’s home, she’s sure she’s on the right track. But can she set the record straight before the book is closed on her too? 

A gripping and fun cozy mystery from the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Emma Jameson. Brimming with intrigue and warm wit, fans of Agatha Christie, Faith Martin, and Betty Rowlands will love A Death at Seascape House.

I am super excited about this series.

I’ve been searching for a new British cozy mystery series and I absolutely loved this book. The characters, the back story, the narration, amazing. I wish there were more than 2 books already out for this series. I will be starting the 2nd book as soon as I finish this review. If you love cozy mysteries you will love this book.

Really good mystery book

I love a good mystery but seldom have the time to indulge. I wound up in the hospital with an infection and pneumonia and after a day or two of boredom I realized I finally had the time now. I’m really glad I landed on this one as it held my interest and I thoroughly enjoyed trying to figure out who the guilty party was. A great way to pass the time and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good mystery!

Great new series

This is my introduction to Emma Jameson Mysteries. I found in enjoyable and intriguing from start to finish. Interesting real characters and setting to be returning home to and solving a murders.

Tamsin Kennard narration made it possible to get lost in the story and acknowledge the characters.

I will be purchasing book 2 (and hopefully more as they appear.)

Intriguing

From start to finish and in between this story carried you through the life of 5 teenage friends to adulthood. Each with their own processes after a tragic accidental death of one of the 5 friends.

Great

Always love your work. Waiting for your next release is torture. Tamsin Kennard is great, knows how to distinguish each character.
Thanks, I hope you enjoy writing your books as much as I enjoy reading them/listening to them.

A great "read"

Jameson has done it again, created characters and an environment that you want to know more about and follow.

A refreshing take on a lady detective story.

Loved it and could not wait to listen to the whole book. A light hearted approach to a murder mystery.

Not really 'British' cozy crime

At first I was thrilled to find a new cozy crime series. Set on the Isles of Scilly with a lively main character and good narration it promised much.
However, when the policeman in charge of the murder was referred to as 'Chief Anderson' it struck a jarring note. After that I found I was listening out for more 'Americanisms' whilst the main character's liveliness became more chippy than likeable and I stopped listening. What a disappointment.

A great start to the series.

A very intriguing mystery with a great cast of characters. I loved how Jem met the new police sergeant. Their interactions with each other were entertaining. The mystery kept me guessing. I felt sorry for Jem and how her friends and the other islanders treated her when she was a young teen. I hope the next in the series will be out soon.
