Anna loves her job as a high school English teacher until everything goes sideways. The one bright spot in her life is Titus Gains, the school counselor, who is there for her at every turn. Titus’ boss complicates his ordered world when she tasks him with running a meeting that changes everything. How had he not noticed Anna earlier? Someone is out to destroy her, and he can’t let that happen.

As the head of the English department, part of Luke Harms’ job is to make sure everything runs smoothly. Things went haywire when Anna was put in charge of the big writing contest. Entries are missing, Anna appears to be in danger, and her job is on the line. Luke is investigating and wants to make things right for this woman he’s starting to care about.

Can a trio of school officials along with Nancy Daley, the town sleuth, stop the saboteur before it’s too late? And will Anna choose the right man, or lose them both?

The Slueth's Dilemma is the second in the series. We met Anna in the first novel. She is happy at her job in the English department at the high school. However, when she is asked to take over the essay contest, things start to go downhill. With the help of her neighbor Nancy and her fellow co-workers, Anna must find out who is putting her job and security in jeopardy. I love how the characters are developed in the book. Even though we have already met some, the author takes the time to introduce more facts and traits about them. The love triangle and love interests grow and develop. I cannot wait to see where these characters go next. Looking forward to a book 3. I recieved a copy from the author. I review was not a requirement.

The Sleuth’s Dilemma ( The Librarian Sleuth - #2 ) By: Kimberly Rose Johnson The Sleuth’s Dilemma is book two in The Librarian Sleuth Series. This is part of a series , but I think you can read it as a stand a lone. I absolutely love this series. I am a big fan of a good mystery , and if you love a good mystery then you will love The Sleuth’s Dilemma. I was drawn in at the start and did not want to put it down. I was not disappointed. There are twist and turns that the author will have you guessing till the end. I like the true friendship and good lesson on values. It seem that I could not read fast enough to see what was going to happen next. There was times that I caught myself holding my breath. I was given a complimentary copy of this book , but was not told that I had to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Lies, threats, and turmoil. Someone is angry with Anna, and he is making her life miserable. I really loved the characters, as I seem to do with this author's books. They are richly developed with an emphasis on their character. It was fun that the author had two men at the school with an interest in Anna and that they were both so full of great Christian traits that I didn't know which of them I wanted her to end up with. This cozy mystery kept my interest throughout and the clues were dispensed at just the right pace that I was able to figure out what was going on before the characters did (yay me!) but they were not presented so obviously that there was no challenge. While the main theme of the story was not about anger, there was an important lesson learned by the one who was causing all the problems because of anger directed at Anna. Giving in to anger and letting it fester is never the right solution and will always lead to problems. The author's heart for the Lord shines clearly in this story as she teaches her characters to draw closer to Him. Read with a Preview at I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.

I have always enjoyed a good mystery. I especially like trying to follow the clues to see if I can figure things out before the big reveal at the end of the story. The author has included enough twists and turns in this one to keep the reader off balance throughout the story. And I have no intention of giving away any clues here. One thing about the book that made a great impression on me was the value placed on modesty and propriety by the main characters. None of them wanted to be in situations that could cause tongues to wag. They had wisely established boundaries and consciously chose to avoid pushing the limits. I admired how Anna dealt with the young female student who approached her for advice about dealing with a pushy boyfriend. What a tremendous life lesson that needs to be stressed over and over again! I will refrain from preaching but I appreciate the care that Kimberly Rose Johnson takes in communicating this through story without getting on a soapbox or pounding on a pulpit. However, we find that at least one of the characters frequently tries to push through other boundaries, especially if they stand in the way of her solving a mystery. You have to love Nancy’s tenacity for trying to help her friends. Even though her boyfriend is a deputy and her mother is the sheriff, she does not hesitate to charge ahead if she believes they are not working hard enough to solve a case. She seems like the kind of friend that one would want to keep around. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest review. All opinions are strictly my own.
