This book left me with mixed feelings. At times I was engaged and caught up in the story, at other times it was a struggle to keep reading. In part, that was due to the mixed nature of the book - I was expecting a cozy mystery, instead I got a mid-life crisis and a sweet romance in the trappings of a cozy mystery. The mysteries, there were two, were the framework for the stories but most definitely not the focus. There were many coincidences, some red herrings, some very obvious story directions and a story line involving a potential rival for the lead's love interest that abruptly went nowhere. It's the first in a new series and I doubt if I'll bother to pick up any of the others.

Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* There's something so tempting about any cozy mystery set with a book theme - librarian, book shop owner, etc. Sorry this was disappointing.

Traci Bummer. Guess I'll leave this one on our shelf.
