Dragged out about three chapters too long.

Was a Great Book and kept you guessing who done it.

I gave up reading this by page 13. All the women in the book are trying to pimp out/matchmake for the protagonist (presumably have no lives of their own and no sense of personal boundaries) and all the men are in love with her. Highly caricatured writing and just.. silly.

Jenn doesn't disappoint with the twists and turns. Library director Lindsey Norris' caring nature never wavers.

Love McKinlays bakery series. So I tried the hat shop series set in London and I didn't care for it, Tried this one and found it better than the hat shop, but not as good as the bakery one.

Fast paced, really good. Only down side is it has the same story line as another East Coast Island famous author, including an old remodeled house and a on again off again sailor boy friend

Much better than the previous book in this series. An interesting mystery and nice to see characters of all ages included in the story.

Not sure if this book is supposed to have a label- YA? romance? Anyway, it's a fun read, and is part of a series about, what else, libraries!
