Today I'm joining Berkley Mystery
in celebrating author
Jenn McKinlay
and her new release
Book 9 in the Library Lover's Mysteries

It's murder by the book in the latest hit Library Lover's mystery from the New York Timesbestselling author of Death in the Stacks.

When a stack of library materials is found at the scene of a hit and run, library director Lindsey Norris finds herself dragged into the investigation as the police try to link the driver of the stolen car to the person who borrowed the books. Before Lindsey can delve into the library's records, the victim of the hit and run, Theresa Houston, suffers another "accident" and the investigation shifts from driver negligence to attempted homicide.

A clue surfaces in the confiscated library materials that could crack open the case and it is up to Lindsey to piece it all together. But things are not as they seem in the sleepy town of Briar Creek and when the driver of the stolen car turns up dead, Lindsey, her staff and her library friends have to hit the books before the murderer gets the last word...

Whenever I know I’m about to start a book by Jenn McKinlay, I clear a day from my schedule because I know I’m not going to do anything else but read that book through until the end.

Book 9 in the Library Lover’s Mysteries is another incredible installment to an already top of the shelf cozy mystery series. With a plot so mesmerizing I don’t remember turning the pages, HITTTING THE BOOKS pulled me into Briar Creek to such an extent that I can still remember walking into the library, being with the crafternooners, hearing the hit-and-run that happened just outside. And that was just the first chapter!

HITTING THE BOOKS was the perfect whodunit. I was kept guessing the entire way through. And just when I’d catch on to one thing, another would sneak in and have my brain cells on overload again. With suspense, action, romance, humor, and so many surprises (good and bad), by the time I set the book down, my face hurt from the array of emotions that flew across it. I know that may sound over the top, but it’s true! You’ll see for yourself when you read this awesome tale.    

I have loved every book, every series author Jenn McKinlay has penned. Her books always get moved to the top of my TBR. The Library Lover’s Mysteries are among my favorites, and HIITING THE BOOKS is written proof why.
