Books Can Be Deceiving | Jenn McKinlay
Lindsey is getting into her groove as the director of the Briar Creek Public Library when a New York editor visits town, creating quite a buzz. Lindsey's friend Beth wants to sell the editor her children's book, but Beth's boyfriend, a famous author, gets in the way. When they go to confront him, he's found murdered-and Beth is the prime suspect. Lindsey has to act fast before they throw the book at the wrong person. From the Paperback edition.

What a cozy mystery! In the past I have never considered myself a reader of this genre- however I needed a good sweet mystery book about books and libraries and found it in this one! Read it in one sitting- can‘t wait to read the rest of the series ! Pair with a tea pot of Savoy Here Be Dragons Green Tea 💚

A pick because I didn‘t see the end coming. But the whole setting up Beth as the killer thing irritated me to no end. And lord almighty, I hate it when authors write severely incompetent law enforcement. My brain just keeps screaming- it wouldn‘t happen that way! Do they get better? This puts me at 3 over my #BFC challenge. Vacay had unexpected reading time, plus I don‘t ever track how much I read so I have no idea where to put a goal.

Audio cooking and cleaning after one of those days at work. Glad Beth (in the story) stood up for herself fairly quickly! Beths don‘t take things lying down like that! 😂

Avanders 😂😂 I think you should start referring to yourself as Glad Beth. In the 3rd person. 👏🏽👏🏽 6mo
BethM @Avanders I may be called many things but Glad Beth has probably never been one of them 😂 6mo
Avanders @BethM 😂 well, you never know, Glad Beth may enjoy being referred to as Glad Beth... 😁 6mo

I had this sitting on my ereader for quite some time and read it as an in-between book. But I liked it a lot more than I expected! A very nice #cozymystery set at a little coast town and the main characters are librarians. What more do you want?

1. U.S.
2. Hmmm... not sure. There are plenty of places I'd love to visit but living would come after the visiting
3. Tagged book takes place in Connecticut
4. I think anything fried would count, I live in Cincinnati so that would have to be Skyline chili (I've never had it)
5. ❤❤❤❤❤❤ to all Littens!

If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, this may be a delight for you! It was a little too cozy for my tastes. I did enjoy the library and library board sections of the book. Overall, not a bad light/quick read.

Finished this one last night. It was a really good cozy mystery and I am definitely going to get book #2. At the end of the book, it has some fun pages that relate to the story, like Sully's hot chocolate recipe, a knitting pattern used during the Crafternoon at the Briar Creek Library, a clam chowder recipe, and more. I highly recommend this one if you like cozy mysteries. Plus, all the characters love books!

An entertaining diversion with a few flaws but it's not like I'm expecting great literature from a cozy mystery.

As the steward of two Little Free Libraries and a life long library lover, I had to read this book when a recommendation came up from another steward. I enjoy a mystery and although I would consider it this a little bit more fluff than anything else, it was still a good story and a good break from some of the meatier reading I've been doing lately. 😊📖📚

I'm not much of a cozy mystery reader (I prefer my mysteries with a bit more teeth and fewer pun names, personally) but they sure make good comfort reads. Plus, look at the chapter headings on these Library Lover's Mysteries!

This is book 1 of the library lovers mystery series. I'm not a big cozy mystery reader but I quite enjoyed this book. Also helps that relate to the main character, a small town librarian. I think I'll try the other books in the series. Quick but fun read.

Only 5 1/2 hours in--I'm so behind and I'm a slow reader anyway, but just finished my first book of the day! This was a fun cozy mystery! I can't relate much to the main character strangely enough, but I like the little coastal town and the fact that you suspect but don't know for sure who the killer is until the last few chapters. And yum, clam chowder and hot chocolate (not together)! #24in48

WordWaller Your snacks/food sound LOVELY. And hey, I'm behind too! Way to go on finishing your first book! 3y

You know, I think I'd overlook the murder rate to live in a cozy mystery town and have cozy mystery friends. Just finishing this one on audio. It's a solidly *good* cozy, *good* first in a series. Nothing too exciting or too stand-out about it, but it is a nice relaxing read or in my case - listen.
