Publisher's Summary

When the Briar Creek Public Library holds its first overdue book amnesty day the volume of incoming materials is more than Lindsey and her staff can handle. In a bind, Lindsey drafts the crafternoon ladies to help check in and sort the stacks of books. But one tardy tome catches her attention - a copy of J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, 20 years past due. When Lindsey looks up the borrower, she's shocked to discover it was a murdered school teacher named Candice Whitley, whose killer was never found. Now Lindsey wonders if it could provide a clue to the decades-old cold case. Lindsey is determined to catch the culprit one way or another, because justice for Candice Whitley is long overdue.

The first couple books were really good reads.

But book 4 started a downhill slide. I skipped to this book (7) and discovered that I really do not like Lindsay, the main character. Unfortunately after book 3 I decided to purchase books 5,6,7 - bad mistake. Found out I can't return the two I haven't listened to. The good news is I didn't buy all of them. $20 out the window. Discouraging but it is my fault.

Not my favorite

I tried this because I like the cupcake mysteries. I didn’t care for the characters in this story. On some of the voices the narrator sounded like she had a stuffy nose. The story didn’t really keep my interest.

light on mystery heavy on romance

This is a pretty good cozy mystery. The mystery is well plotted with several twists and turns. However, the romantic entanglements between the characters took up a large portion of the book.
