Author: Jenn McKinlay
Series: Library Lover’s Mystery #2
Synopsis (from bn.com): Answering tricky reference questions is excitement enough for library director Lindsey Norris. Until a murder is committed in her cozy hometown of Briar Creek, Connecticut, and the question of who did it must be answered before someone else is checked out—for good.
My thoughts: This is the second book in the Library Lover’s Mystery series. I must say that I do enjoy this series. I find the characters charming, warm, and inviting and the storylines fun! This particular book truly puts the cozy in the “cozy mystery” in that it is set in the middle of a snowstorm. It just invites you to tuck in under your favorite blankie, grab your favorite hot beverage and enjoy the read!
One thing I did find odd about this book was that it really didn’t focus on finding the killer until well after half the book was finished. The first half of the book if not a bit more really served as dialogue between the characters. I assume this was the author’s way of letting us get to know the characters better as the series continues. It just felt a bit different especially for a book in the mystery genre.
I am not sure if I like this Library Lover’s series of Jenn McKinlay or her Cupcake bakery books better! Time will tell.
Overall, an enjoyable, light read with fun, cozy characters!
