While I have had some share of cosy mystery books altogether I am not a big fan of the genre I found that with most of them I had to work too hard to suspend the disbelief muscle Police is not capable to accomplish what a self made sleuth without training background or clue can do YEAH RIGHT and it much diminished the entertainment valueI don't know exactly what attracted me to this book possibly the cover title setting I can't seem to resist books about books but I was pleasantly surprised this time The story was both credible and entertaining Maybe because the crimes that are investigated have their roots in the past and the main character Amy as a librarian has access to archived documents and her family turns out to be deeply involved both in the past and present instancesAlso the setting of uirky town with close knit community worked well The plot was very well structured with hidden agendas slowly growing tension emerging closet skeletons The romance between Amy and Richard was OK but HEA was happening a bit too fast even though they are a likeable coupleAltogether a very pleasant readARC received via Netgalley by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review
