Word the the Wise by Jenn McKinlay

The tenth installment in Library Lover's Mystery does not disappoint.  McKinlay does a wonderful job of intertwining the everyday lives of the Briar Creek Library group and their families in with the mystery.  Unfortunately for Lindsay, even when she tries to stay out of trouble and the murder investigation she ends up embroiled in it.   This story has some good twists and turns and keeps the reader engaged throughout the story.

I am looking forward to hearing more about the personal stories of Lindsay & Sully,  Beth & Ryan and Emma & Robbie as well as the supporting characters in the story.  I am curious to see if Chloe is made into a recurring character as she seems to have a good relationship with the main characters of the stories.

Word to the Wise (Library Lover's Mystery, #10)Word to the Wise by Jenn McKinlay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is always enjoyable to read about Lindsey and her friends. This edition of the Briar Creek Library adventures is a delight as we visit Briar Creek, CT during a drought in June. Lindsay has a visit from a new town resident looking for gardening advice to save his roses. His thank you roses and more prove to be an unwelcome bit of attention. Fortunately her fiance', Sully and Robbie Vine are able to support her in confirming he lack of interest. This drags all 3 of them into a mystery that grows as the book progresses. We get glimpses of Lindsay and Sully's wedding planning and the lives of their friends and family during this book. I look forward to the next installment and see how Mrs. Cole's aka the Lemon's, new venture pans out.
