You would think by the title of the book that it was going to be about a sweet fairytale...If you have read Jane Blythe before, you will realize that this will not be a sweet fairytale, but a tale of a killer. You will not be disappointed by this story!!

The story of a man who believes "losing is a failure." He needed to become something other than who he was. He would do anything to ensure that his fantasies came true, no matter who he hurt. How many people would he hurt to make sure all of his

Beauty, the Beast & the Library sounds like a romantic fantasy read but let me warn you it's far from that. A suspenseful thriller with a sprinkle of romance that will leave you guessing who the beast could be.

Book Review: Beauty, the Beast and the Library
Author: Jane Blythe
Very quick read, will keep you engaged and guessing who dun it. Ms. Blythe has captured my attention with this book. I am not usually a fan of suspense but this book was well written and it kept me on the edge of my seat just long enough.
I honestly didnt know what I was getting into when I read the title. Just knew it was about a Library and a fairy tale. Yeah this is nothing like the Disney movie. Be prepared for some s

This book is a short and easy read. It’s fast paced and can be read in a few hours. I was immediately caught up in the storyline. It’s fresh and engrossing. It’s romantic suspense. It’s a little different from Jane Blythe’s other books. Even though it involves her signature serial killer it felt lighter to me. I truly enjoyed this book! I received an advance review copy for an honest review.

Another amazing book from Jane. She has this knack of grabbing you into the story and not letting you stop reading til the end.

Strong characters and a believable storyline make for a enjoyable read.

I would recommend this book.

Jane has loved reading and writing since she can remember. She writes dark and disturbing crime/mystery/suspense with some romance thrown in because, well, who doesn’t love romance?! She has several series including the complete Detective Parker Bell series, the Count to Ten series, the Christmas Romantic Suspense series, and the Flashes of Fate series of novelettes.
