Julie Andrews looks to be heading to theaters in December, but not in Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns.

The villains in Megan Abbott’s twisted crime novels are often combative, hypercompetitive women and girls: elite cheerleaders; perfectionist gymnasts and their drill-sergeant moms; a cunning crime boss and her back-stabbing, power-hungry underling.

Dream of literature. This enchanting two-room suite in our boutique hotel is in the castle’s original library. The sleeping room features an upper balcony of beautiful mahogany complete with its own library, a king-sized bed (which can be split into two twin beds) and a spectacular harbor view of Camden Maine’s Penobscot Bay. The Library Suite also offers a cozy sitting room with its own gas fireplace and a sofa where you can read and relax.

Hello dream library suite, when can I move in?!
