The New York Times best-selling Library Lover's mysteries continue with a hot new case....
Loving a good cup of coffee runs in the family for Briar Creek library director Lindsey Norris. But when her brother, Jack, a consultant for a coffee company, goes missing, her favorite beverage becomes a key clue in a dangerous mystery.
Between preparing the library for the holidays and juggling the affections of ex-boyfriend Captain Mike Sullivan and her new crush, actor Robbie Vine, Lindsey has her hands full. But the mysterious disappearance of her world-traveling playboy brother takes precedence over all.
Afraid that involving the police could brew trouble for Jack, Lindsey takes matters into her own hands. But as her quest for her brother embroils her in a strange case involving South American business dealings and an enigmatic and exotic woman, it'll take the help of both her library book club - the crafternooners - and her eager-to-please suitors to keep Jack from ending up in hot water....

Not necessarily--the performance was great, as usual, and the writing was good too. However, I just did not care for this storyline. It was more complicated than some of the other books and I felt no connection to most of the players in this mystery.
This mystery did not focus on the characters that I've come to know and love (though they were involved, of course). The "bad guys" were not from Briar Creek and the main victims were not from Briar Creek.
I enjoy this series because of the small town focus. I did not like that Jenn McKinlay tried to branch out. However, that did make it more difficult to guess who the perpetrator was.
I actually did not care for Lindsey in this story. She was concerned about her brother, obviously, but I think that took away from her normal strength.
Plot slightly different than before with international intrigue thrown in. We also learn more about Lindsey's family and meet her brother (a mysterious, charismatic, and intriguing character). And maybe, just maybe, Lindsey solves her love life dilemma.
