The first of the Library Lover’s mysteries by Jenn McKinlay.
Lindsey Norris is the new director of the Briar Creek Public Library.
When a top editor to a New York children’s publisher is visiting Briar Creek, Lindsey’s best friend and children’s librarian Beth is persuaded to show the editor her children’s book she had been working on for a number of years. Only to find out that Beth’s ex boyfriend has stolen her work and calling it his own!
When Beth goes out to his island with Lindsey and Sully, on Sully’s boat to confront him. She finds him dead, with the word LIAR written on his forehead.
Now Beth is in deep water with the Chief of police, who is determined to arrest her for murder!
Can Lindsey find the murderer and save her friend?
I loved this well crafted mystery. With its great set of characters that will be fun to watch grow.
