Summary: As the head of the Calendar Public Library, Sara Cutler is fighting to keep the building from being torn down by a real estate developer named Jason Rees. When she discovers her assistant dead in the rare books section, handsome Rees is on hand to keep Sara safe. Soon Sara’s life becomes complicated as she must solve the mystery of her assistant’s double life, save the library, and figure out what to do about Rees.
I love novels set in libraries, but after reading this first paragraph I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. The protagonist sounds young and immature rather than what I would expect for a head librarian. Hopefully it gets better.
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
This novel is part of the Calendar of Crime 2020 challenge.
