Books Can Be Deceiving by Jenn McKinlay
A Library Lover's Mystery #1
Mass Market Paperback
Lindsey is getting into her groove as the director of the Briar Creek Public Library when a New York editor visits town, creating quite a buzz. Lindsey's friend Beth wants to sell the editor her children's book, but Beth's boyfriend, a famous author, gets in the way. When they go to confront him, he's found murdered-and Beth is the prime suspect. Lindsey has to act fast before they throw the book at the wrong person.
Jenn McKinlay is one of my favorite cozy mystery authors. I was happy to see she wrote a new series with libraries as the back drop.. This book had me from the first page and I did not want to put it down. I stayed up late a couple of nights just so I could finish it faster and to see what was going to happen. The little town of Briar Creek is a quaint town that is surrounded by some islands. What fun it would be to go out and see the islands or to live on one. Lindsey and Beth are good friends that help each other out especially when Beth finds herself accused of murder. Captain Sully who sails the water taxi was another of my favorite characters so far. Ms. Cole on the other hand I did not like. She was a grouchy woman. I look forward to getting to know the rest of the members of the crafternoon club.
