review 1: I like McKinlay's plotting, but BOTH of her series driving me crazy right now (this one and her Library Lover series) with their romantic drama. Please, please, please stick with the mystery, and if romantic issues are part of the character, fine. But the romantic triangles for b...

review 1: Three stars. I read this on a little vacation and it was a quick read. It's very light on the mystery (to be clear, if you blink, you'll miss it & the wrap up is lightening fast too) but I enjoyed the setting and the characters were more enjoyable than irritating, so it's all goo...

review 1: Thank goodness for a library mystery where the librarian isn't an old fashioned steptype of the prim and proper old maid. Too bad most of the book's other characters are obvious "characters"...the childish children's librarian, the small-minded small-town cop, etc. And just onc...

review 1: . Enjoyed this book. The mystery was superficial, but reading this right after a ya romance book made it acceptable. I kept getting confused on who was who as this was my first book by this author and there was no review/refresher other than how business started. Solid $ stars. ...

review 1: I have really liked the series so far, but this one felt weaker. The love triangle thing is getting old. Whether it's her ex or now a famous actor, Lindsey is starting to get annoying in her romantic melodrama. And I was intrigued by the mystery itself, but the answer felt too ab...
Due or Die (2012)

review 1: This is the second in a series that takes place in a small town. The characters, many of whom work in the local public library, are likeable, and humorous, even in the face of a murder.This isn't great literary fiction, nor is it an "edge of your seat, can't put down" mystery. Ra...

review 1: This was another good entry in the series. I read the fourth one before this as this one was already checked out at the library so I was glad that I caught it this time. Like the others in the series, for me it's most about the characters than the mystery so much. Still, they mys...

review 1: More like a 3.5 actually. I've read other cozy mysteries by the author & figured I'd give another a go (they had the first two available at the library and that's what really motivated me to pick this one up). Like her other series, these are quick reads and easy to follow. I wil...

review 1: If you've read the first book in the series then you'll like the second book as well. There's something hilarious about the rivalry between Olivia Puckett & Mel & Angie. In this book we get more character development for all the main characters. Plus we get introduced to Marty, a...
