This cozy by Jenn McKinlay is the latest in her Library Lover's series. It is perfect for the sentimental mystery reader, it's set at Christmas and features a wedding. It has the makings of a Hallmark channel movie written all over it. McKinlay does a wonderful job of capturing the small town intimacy and charm again in this installment. She also demonstrates the nosiness that comes with it as well. Her descriptions of the scenery and weather make the reader feel as though they have been dropped into the middle of a Connecticut December. This combined with her amiable characters who generally lead realistic lives, minus stumbling over bodies on a regular basis, make for an enjoyable read.
If you are looking for a quick engaging read during a crazy time then this just might be the book you are looking for.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I always enjoy reading the cozy mystery set in CT that centers around Lindsay Norris and her work at the library as well as amateur sleuth. This time the week of Lindsay and Sully's wedding is being hampered by the mysterious death of a long time friend and town resident. There are plenty of cliche actions of 2 people confessing to protect each other and mysterious party guests. The story is a bit farfetched at times but the characters are so inviting and enjoyable that you can overlook the extreme drama. If you are looking for a clean cozy set around holidays and a wedding then this is a good fit for you.
