Publisher's Summary

Answering tricky reference questions is excitement enough for library director Lindsey Norris...until a murder is committed in her cozy hometown of Briar Creek, Connecticut, and the question of who did it must be answered before someone else is checked out - for good.

    "Fun read"

    As a librarian myself, I admit I'm a little predisposed to like books with characters who are librarians. I especially like this series as there are no ghosts, crime solving, and/or talking cats! So, kudos for sticking to real people in real situations, though somewhat quirky crimes. Highly enjoyable.

    "A woman with brains"
    What made the experience of listening to Due or Die the most enjoyable?

    Lindsey is a strong character, without being annoying. She uses her brain!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Definitely--I was not sure when Lindsey would wind up in the middle of things or how she would get herself out.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Ryan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first.


    Any additional comments?

    The perpetrator kind of came out of left field, which was both a pro and a con. I don't like to know whodunit from the first chapter, but I also don't like to go, "Wait. Who was that again?" Overall, this did not affect my desire to keep listening.

    "Great Read"

    This is the second book in the The Library Lover's Mystery series. It was very entertaining. I hope audible makes the rest of the books available.

    "So great that I bought the next book in the series"

    I liked the previous book in this series, Books Can Be Deceiving, but I enjoyed this one even more. My favorite character was the little puppy someone shoved through the book return drop. He immediately takes to Lindsey, the main character and head librarian, and she says she will take care of him until they can find a home for him. FAMOUS LAST WORDS! It was obvious that McKinlay knows dogs well, as she really brings this little guy to life! And he comes to play a significant part in the plot.

    The human characters in this book also come to life, such as Beth, the children's librarian who is s big kid herself and dresses up to read her regular story time. There is also "the Lemon," the longest employed librarian there who has no people skills, even claiming that she'll be fomenting anarchy if she backdates the check-in date of the books put in the book slot over the days a massive storm caused the library to be closed. Another creative character is "Batty Bilson," who tries to run Lindsey off the road and then stalks her because the Friends of the Library voted out as president the man old enough to be her grandfather whom she has become obsessed with.

    The plot is really clever, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've bought the next bin in the series already because of the success of the first two!
