Sleuthing for Books in Vermont

The Brattleboro Reformer profiles Mystery on Main Street, a new independent mystery bookshop that opened in the city just over a month ago after the owner, David Lampe-Wilson, moved to town:

Lampe-Wilson and his family recently
moved to Saxtons River from Connecticut and within weeks the store was
open for business.
“We made the full move and got the store opened in a three-week
period,” Lampe-Wilson said. “People are finding us. There’s interest
once they know we’re here.”
The family moved to Saxtons River because they were ready for a
quieter, more relaxing life. Lampe-Wilson said he would sit in more
than an hour of traffic each day to get to work in Connecticut. And
worst of all, he would brave the same amount to get to his favorite
mystery book store.
“I look around for mysteries because that’s what I read,” Lampe-Wilson
said. “I couldn’t find enough.”

And so the shop was born.
