To Helvetica and Back

A Dangerous Type Mystery
Paige Shelton
January 2016
ISBN: 978-0-425-27725-6

Star City is known for its slopes and powder. Nestled in the valley of this ski resort town is a side street full of shops that specialize in the simple charms of a time gone by. One of those shops is The Rescued Word, where Chester Henry and his granddaughter, Clare, lovingly repair old typewriters and restore old books. When a stranger in town demands they turn over an antique Underwood typewriter they are repairing, Clare feels she may need to be the one rescued. Later when the man's body is found in the back alley, Clare begins to wonder what did he really want with that typewriter?

TO HELVETICA AND BACK is the first in a new series full of family connections and old time charm. An easy read that flows well with characters that feel like old friends and a story line that connects easily, this series will soon be one of your favorite. A wonderful new read!
