Book Reviewer
"Exciting...Appealing...Miss Zukas is straight-forward, understated, tongue-in-cheek."
Jennifer Dunning
"A loving send-up of the stereotype of the prim librarian...characters I'd like to spend more time with."

A very disappointing main character. I could not warm to her or even like her. I kept hoping it would get better, but it didn't. She remained up tight & superior until the end. I can not recommend this book.
