THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING LIBRARY LOVER'S MYSTERY FROM THE AUTHOR OF DUE OR DIE

“Avast” in pirate speak means what?*

Answering tricky reference questions like this one provides plenty of excitement for library director Lindsey Norris. But when a shocking murder is committed in her cozy coastal town of Briar Creek, Connecticut, the question of who did it must be answered before an innocent man gets the book thrown at him...
 
Lindsey is enjoying her second year in Briar Creek as the library director, meeting with the crafternoon club, and happily dating tour boat captain Mike Sullivan. But when a salvage company arrives in town to dig up treasure buried on Pirate Island over three hundred years ago, the locals are torn between protecting the island and welcoming the publicity. 
 
In spite of the squabbling, Charlie Peyton, Lindsey’s downstairs neighbor, takes a job with the salvage company. But when Trudi Hargrave, the local tourism director who hired the company, is found murdered at the excavation site, Charlie becomes the chief suspect. To help him, Lindsey must do some digging of her own before the real killer buries the truth for good…

    Oh man, what a great book and that ending, wow. Treasure huntin

    Oh man, what a great book and that ending, wow. Treasure hunting is the theme in this lighthearted tale filled with suspense, intrigue and murder. Once Lindsay gets involved in trying to find the person responsible, this fast-moving and action filled drama is one I could not put down until the last sentence was read. The author pulled me in many directions as this murder mystery played out with clues to the killer’s identity and yet surprised me with the outcome. A great read that I wish could have gone on forever and now I look forward to the next book in this delightfully charming series.

    A great series!

    This is a great series!

    I enjoy all of the characters and the plot line. Its a great cozy mystery!! There is a little bit of romance for the main character and that adds a great story line that becomes the cliffhanger for the next book in the series. Looking forward to book #4!

    Pick up this series! it is wonderful!

    How I love this series! How can I not since it's about a librarian in a small town and she stumbles on mysterious murders.
    Treasure huntes arrive in Lindsey's small town and disrupt the peace and quiet. They come lookin' for pirate treasure (arrrr) and one of the hunters turns up dead.
    There's also an old murder that needs solving and Lindsey's beau, a tour boat captain, feels compelled to find out who did what.
    Love love love this series!

    Suspense, intrigue and murder are twisted about in this story of pirate treasure. I love the small town coastal setting and the people of Briar Creek Library. The craftafternooner's reading group delightfully gossips more than they knit, crochet, and cross-stitch! Heathcliff her large puppy was a fun addition. (I have an Old English Sheepdog so I can relate). I found her romance with Sully interesting and it was fun to revisit Beth and Mrs. Cole.

    The mystery had a few twists and turns and kept right on moving. I liked the mini-plots throughout the book.... Lindsey's ex coming on the scene, the treasure hunt and her library co-workers. I liked the character developments from the previous books. This book left me wishing for the next in this great series!

    I was asked to write a review for the Library Lover's Mystery Series and decided to just write one for the last of the ones so far as I would write the same thing for them all. I enjoyed this series, however felt that it was not quite as interesting as the Cupcake Bakery Mystery series by the same author. There was a lot of similarity in the plots and having just read the 4 Cupcake Bakery ones could be why I felt this way. I would suggest that if you were to read both series that you take a break between reading them and not read them right after each other. These are good reading and again ones that you will not have to be concerned about whether or not your younger readers might pick them up and start to read them--and as the other series they will also keep you wondering "who dun it", but as I said, read some other books in between the two different series and you will probably enjoy them more.

    I did enjoy this book, however it could be considered fantasy. The perfect man, perfect job, perfect friends, and clues that all just happen to fall into her lap. Heathcliff seems real enough though!

    Another winner

    I enjoyed this book very much. I have read the previous one in the series and enjoyed it immensely. Each mystery is better than the previous. Good character development and fresh approach to mystery writing.

    Pirates in Briar Creek??! Well maybe just some in costume today

    Pirates in Briar Creek??! Well maybe just some in costume today but a salvage company has landed in town with hopes of finding buried treasure on Pirate Island. Residents are divided on their feelings about the excavation but Lindsey’s downstairs neighbor, Charlie Peyton, has signed on with the company to help dig up the booty. Things barely get underway when the body of Trudi Hargrave is found at the site. She’s the local tourism director who arranged for the dig. Charlie becomes one of the suspects so Lindsey decides to do some digging of her own before the truth gets buried for good.





    Jenn McKinlay has written another bestseller here.




    The reader is welcomed right into the Briar Creek Library for a meeting of the crafternoon group. The group works on their crafts like knitting or crochet while discussing the pre-selected book. Of course the discussion gets off track and family news and community gossip is shared. Talks try to stay on topic if sour “lemon” Mrs. Cole is lurking. These characters are fantastic!!!! In this installment Lindsey’s ex even makes an appearance. Will his presence throw a wrench in Lindsey’s and Sully’s romance? This reviewer is not telling. 




    McKinlay writes a fast paced mystery filled with humor, romance and intrigue. The friendships are genuine and true. Briar Creek sounds like a wonderful place to live and the library a perfect place to be to keep your thumb on the pulse of the community. I really hate getting to end of these stories knowing I must wait months to visit Lindsay, Beth, Sully, Heathcliff and even Mrs. Cole again. I will be watching for Read It and Weep to hit the shelves. Soon I hope.

    This is the third book in the A Library Lover's Mystery series.

    This is the third book in the A Library Lover's Mystery series. Another exciting story from Jenn McKinlay.

    The Riordan Salvage company wants to search Ruby Island, off the coast of Briar Creek, for the reputed buried treasure of Captain Kidd. This has the community in an uproar on both sides. Trudi Hargrave and Milton Duffy, are just two, who are at odds over this and are having a heated discussion at the library over this. In addition to this, John, Lindsey's former boyfriend, has shown up in Briar Creek for an extended visit.

    Sully and Lindsey are taking some personal items out to Charlie who is working for salvage company and is staying on the island to guard against scavengers. As soon as they are ashore, Charlie informs them that he has discovered a body in a pit. The body turns out to be Trudi and what with her heated arguments with Milton, he becomes a prime suspect.

    Lindsey is sure that Milton is in no way involved and it busy trying to the murderer. But she also must make time to impress upon John that there is no future for them as a couple. Needless to say, Sully is having problems dealing with John's sudden appearance.

    All of our friends from the Crafternoon Book Group book are here to help Lindsey. Especially, Beth, who does a wonderful job as being a pirate.

    Looking forward to the next book and see what Lindsey and Sully might be up to.
