Written in Stone by Ellery Adams

"When Munin Cooper, known as the Witch of Oyster Bay, warns Olivia Limoges that death is coming, neither of them realize that it is the older woman herself who will soon be found dead. And Olivia’s instincts tell her that something—or someone—more sinister than a mystical force is at play… Olivia has a lot on her plate preparing for the Coastal Carolina Food Festival. When she hears the news of Munin’s untimely death, however, finding the murderer takes priority. The witch left behind a memory jug full of keepsakes that Olivia knows must point to the killer—but she’s got to figure out what they mean. With handsome Police Chief Rawlings by her side, Olivia starts to identify some of the jug’s mysterious contents—and finds its secrets are much darker than she suspected. Now Olivia must enlist the help of the Bayside Book Writers to solve the puzzle behind the piece of pottery and put an end to a vengeful killer before any more damage can be done…" (Goodreads)


The Books By The Bay mystery series is one of my favourite cozy mysteries! I love the main character, Olivia, so much. She is independent, found her own way, does not care what other people think of her, does what she can for others, and is just an all-around good person. I also love that she talks to her dog like he’s a person!!!!!

This is the fourth book in the series and it did not disappoint. Olivia is a master problem-solver and her friends were right there with her to help solve the problem. This story, and murder, was a bit more personal for Olivia and it was nice to see her vulnerable side. I do not want to give anything away about this series, especially because it is not the first one, but it is just such a great read. I fell into it instantly, I find the characters relatable, I love the town that the series is set in, and I never know what kind of murder the author will come up with next. No one is safe in this series and surprises are always waiting for the reader. I give this book (and series) a 5/5!!!!

Happy Reading!
