"Star City is known for its slopes and its powder. But nestled in the valley of this ski resort town is a side street full of shops that specialize in the simple charms of earlier eras. One of those shops is the Rescued Word, where Chester Henry and his adult granddaughter Clare lovingly repair old typewriters and restore old books. When a stranger to town demands they turn over an antique Underwood typewriter they're repairing for a customer, Clare fears "she" may need to be rescued. A call to the police scares the man off, but later Clare finds his dead body in the back alley. What about a dusty old typewriter could possibly be worth killing for?"-- Provided by publisher.

Shallow writing and plot.

It's an okay book, but for one big flub. Baskerville, the store's resident cat, is described as a calico male. That despite the fact that 99% of calico cats are female (a genetic thing).
