The Sleuth’s Conundrum is an excellent blend of romance, mystery and suspense!

This story had solid characters and great friendships. It was fast-paced and much more suspenseful than I was expecting! The mystery had me puzzled until the very end! Finally, the sweet romance that developed between Adam and Tara will make you smile!

I’ve read four books by Kimberly Rose Johnson this year and I would happily read four more! Her stories are well-planned, faith-filled and are great for mystery and

Tipton, Oregon, has suddenly started jumping with more crime than the sheriff’s office can handle so Sheriff Daley asks her daughter, Nancy, to figure out who left a week-old baby on the porch of the library while the department is busy trying to solve the death of a young woman found on the side of the road. Nancy’s day job is librarian at the public library, but she loves nothing better than trying her hand at solving mysteries. The baby on the porch is certainly that. Who would have left a ...more

What does a dead body, a stalker and an abandoned baby have in common? This is definitely a romantic suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. Tara and Adam are drawn to each other but will the past and the present keep them from a future together? Nancy is on the case again. I loved how the author had so many things going on in this book and brought it all together. Another good one in this series. I received a copy of the book from the publisher.

I'm loving this Librarian Series. Then again, I love this author's work. Always clean cut and interesting, a teenage daughter or an elderly mother could read any of them.

This book starts out with three 'mysteries' right off the bat. I was immediately sucked into their world again (Tipton, Oregon) and while I like to think I can figure out the 'whodunnit' pretty quickly, I didn't! Enjoyable from start to finish, I can relate to the characters, and have pictures of them in my mind. I do love

This third book in the series centers more around Tara, a librarian assistant. Nancy is the librarian, but she doesn’t just solve mysteries before the end of a book she’s reading. She likes to solve real life mysteries.

Tara is a very private person and no one knows much about her past. When she finds an abandoned infant at the library, her mysterious past and present day mysteries collide.

The series is fun to read. I enjoyed learning more about Tara and why she seems unfriendly.

A newborn baby, a mystery, possible homicide, secrets from the past and new love. All of these things and more are found in this exciting new story. At different times while reading, I thought I knew "who done it" only to learn I was mistaken. The author kept me interested and curious as to what would happen next. Awesome story. I received a complimentary copy of the book. No review was required.

A sweet mystery

Tipton, Oregon is once again faced with a mystery. This time, things are bigger and more dangerous than Nancy, the librarian sleuth, is prepared for. It was clear that Tara had a secret which had her skittish and ready to run. Little did she expect the people of this sleepy town would have her wanting so much to stay.

I liked Tara from the start and was very curious about what her past contained. I was quite surprised to learn what she was running from, though looking back, I laugh

Nancy Daley's life has really turned into a conundrum. Her fiancé is pushing for a wedding date. Meanwhile, there is a dead woman, an assistant who is acting strange, and an abandoned baby. How is she going to figure this all out and still keep her sanity?
I love this series. Nancy is one character that I can relate with. I love to read so working in a library would be ideal for me. However, the rest of her life is a little to crazy for me. Lol. This story is one that kept me turning the pages

The Sleuths Conundrum is the third book in The Librarian Sleuth series. I found this to be a great romantic suspense story. The characters are well developed, likable, and relatable. The storyline was well written and captured my interest from the start. This is an intriguing story with secrets from the past, an abandoned baby, a body on the side of the road, and a wedding to plan.

I am looking forward to reading more books from this author.
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

I think each book in this series has been better than the one before. Lots of good plot twists, red herrings, cliff-hanging chapter ends, and well-written characters. I wouldn't recommend reading this late at night :-)

I love these stories. The puzzles, the tension, the community, the relationships as well as the romance (of course). This book is especially good, like how it explains Tara's story. A neat tie-up for the ending too. Great!
