A Murder for the Books

35286383  I picked this up at my local library after seeing a post about it on Goodreads.  The mystery was good (although I guessed who the villain(s) were).  I enjoyed it through to the end.  I found Amy, the protagonist, likable and very real seeming.

 

Amy has returned to her Aunt’s home, giving up her university library position to take a job in the local public library.  The small town is having the classic battle with the developer who is trying to swoop in and push out the old.  When a library patron is murdered in the archives room, Amy gets sucked into the mystery and uncovers links to her family’s past.  The only part I found weak was the romance.  The romantic lead, Richard Muir, doesn’t really sweep me off my feet.  Very promising start to a new series.
