Bookmarked for Murder features Juanita Wills, intrepid (aka nosy) public librarian in the small town of Wyndham, Oklahoma. In this first book in the Scrappy Librarian series, Juanita takes on a dangerous mix of murder, local militias, and deep-seated racism, as she tries to get to the bottom of a hate crime that takes place in a local church.
Juanita is nothing if not stubborn, whether she is pestering suspects, trying to keep a book club on track, or playing referee to the "quote wars" that inspire her staff to their own version of literary mayhem.
The small-town setting is pleasantly familiar, and the story a satisfying tale of secrets unraveled and justice sought.
