Exotic location or staycation?

By Shelby Cox from the Castle Bookshop Mysteries by Essie Lang

I’m so glad summer has finally arrived here in the Thousand Islands. It took its time getting here! If you’ve never visited the area, I highly suggest you include it in your vacation plans. 

You’ll love our village of Alexandria Bay and from there, you can cruise the river, stopping in at Boldt and Singer castles, which will carry you back to the elegance of bygone days.

Of course, don’t forget about Blye Castle on Blye Island…although you may have a bit of trouble finding it. You can always visit it by reading the Castle Bookshop Mysteries though. 

We have so many activities planned for the summer and then, there’s the unplanned and totally shocking murder! But, I won’t get into that here except to say, I’ve got it well in hand. I mean, what’s a bookshop owner to do, if not clear up the real life whodunit and make the island a safe reading zone once again?

What are your summer plans? Planning a trip to an exotic location or maybe, it’s a staycation? Whatever you decide, hope it's a fun and safe time!

Be sure to watch for DEATH ON THE PAGE, book 2 in the Castle Bookshop Mysteries, coming March, 2020.

  1. During the summer it's all staycation for me. There's so much to do here in WNY. But this fall I'm taking an amazing adventure of a trip. I'm going to Poland!
