Lindsey Norris is the library director of the Briar Creek Library in Connecticut. While looking out the window of the library’s “crafternoon” room at the back of the library, Lindsey witnesses a hit-and-run accident. The victim is Theresa Huston, a well-respected tennis coach. With no known enemies it’s hard to imagine that someone deliberately targeted Theresa, but after the second attempt on her life, the message is clear: someone wants her dead.

The librarian and her beloved library both play a role in this case. Some CDs which were checked out of the library are found in the car used in the hit-and-run and the driver is inside too, and what’s more, he’s been murdered! When the chief of police asks for Lindsey’s help in finding out who took the CDs out of the library, it gives her an opening to dig further into the case and hopefully find the killer before he or she goes after Theresa a third time.

I always enjoy this series a lot. As characters relationships evolve, and changes come to Briar Creek it’s a captivating journey to a small town with each and every book. The mystery is solid with just enough clues to keep you guessing until the end.

You can’t go wrong with a Jenn McKinlay book. I highly recommend this to cozy mystery buffs and to people who love libraries! When you purchase your own copy, maybe you could get one to donate to your library as well!
