This was an interesting series starter. First of all, I love that the main character is a librarian, though her library is very different from the reality I experience every day at my library. Still--I love librarian fiction. The plotting was intricate, and well crafted, though the story did lag a bit at times. I dislike love triangles and this book starts one. Overall, this was a fun cozy mystery and I though it is not one of my favorites, I would consider reading more of the series.
Don't expect it to be similar to the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries version on HMM. They changed quite a bit from the original book.
