I picked this up from the library which only seems appropriate since it is book 3 in a “Library Lover’s Mystery” series. For some reason I had a hard time getting into this book, I picked it up and put it down a few times and that is unusual for me. It may have been that I was trudging, er…I mean reading through Stephen King’s Under the Dome at the same time.
Anyway, today after my errands I had a lunch out on the patio with my mom of salad, a delicious pate, some wonderful olives and fresh bread along with a bottle of Jersey White wine. I brought the book along and after we finished eating I sunk into my sun lounger to read. This time I got right into it. There was more than one mystery going on in the story, an older unsolved mystery and the current one. Pirates (ahoy matey, eye patch and all), treasure and eco-warriors abounded, all great fun.
I did find some of the dialogue stilted or even trite and I was concerned about the return of an old love interest creating the classic “love triangle”, but there was an interesting twist on it. We see more of Sully in this book and I like his character. I enjoy this type of plot, in which there is an old crime and a new crime that are connected and we just have to figure out how.
Cute mystery that is a quick, fun read for anyone who likes book themed cozies.
Now I am working on:
This book has sucked me right in and I will probably finish it tonight.
