Review by: Kevin A. Lyons on Dec. 15, 2013 :
This is a wonderful "cozy" mystery. The setting is a library in a mid-sized city. I worked in a library, long ago, and the various departments (and personalities) all seemed very familiar to me. There were several believable misdirections in solving the murder. The conclusion, when I got there, was very believable. I enjoyed going along for the ride.

I'd welcome another story in this setting and with these characters.
