Coming up from behind her to look over her shoulder at the work she was doing he tilted his head. It looked simple to him then again anything to him looked simple. “Staring off again.”
“H-Huh?” Rena was startled by the boy approaching her.
She didn’t realize the time. How long has it been studying here? Then again, why did she come to the library to study? Of course, she couldn’t study much at home. She sighs, studying was a lost cause. She could ask for a tutor; since she was mad at the one she had.

Lindsey Norris, Library Director of Briar Creek Library, didn’t seek out trouble this time. She just gazed out the window during the weekly crafternoon meeting, when she witnessed the hit-and-run of one her patrons. The weird thing?

I am so glad I stuck with this series! This installment is an excellent read! The mystery itself is engaging, and the variety of subplots (which are woven in flawlessly) are hilarious. I also enjoy how McKinlay is able to keep her library angle fresh and interesting for her readers.
I would recommend this book (which you can start with, provided you know going in that this installment isn’t close to being the first-in-series) to anyone looking for a fun fastpaced cozy read! Seriously this book moved at a quick clip from cover to cover!

But it was odd how close some of the similarities were, especially when it came to names.
