Jessica "Ike" Wordsworth can dive into books, but she isn't prepared for a monster - and a ruthless murderer killing her tourists.
Ike is fighting the aftermath of a nasty divorce that left her husband in custody of her homesitting business - and her beloved cats.
With nothing but a turquoise construction trailer to call her home, Ike invests her last quid and becomes partner in a tour company specialising in bespoke trips for book-lovers. When the guide hired to take on the first tour drops out at the last minute, Ike has to take over and steer her guests towards the cradle of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein".
All to soon she realises there truly are monsters on the loose, one of them a ruthless killer who's targetting her tourists.
To unearth the truth, Ike will have to cooperate with her moronic partner, Gary Sands, 13th Baron of Nettlehole and founder of LiteraTours. When they don't succeed in stopping the killer, she realises she'll have to take the plunge and draw on some rather unusual skills her family has been hiding from the world . . .
"Frankenstein's Guide" is the first instalment in the "LiteraTours Cozy Mystery series".
