Summary
"Lindsey Norris and her staff are gearing up for the Briar Creek Library's annual Dinner in the Stacks fund-raiser. The night of dinner and dancing is not only a booklover's dream--it's the library's biggest moneymaker of the year. But instead of raising funds, the new library board president is busy raising a stink and making the staff miserable. Although Olive Boyle acts like a storybook villain, Lindsey is determined to work with her and make the event a success. But when Olive publicly threatens the library's newest hire, Paula, Lindsey cracks like an old book spine and throws Olive out of the library. The night of the fund-raiser, Lindsey dreads another altercation with Olive--but instead finds Paula crouched over Olive's dead body. Paula may have secrets, but Lindsey and the rest of the crafternooners know she's not the one who took Olive out of circulation. As the plot thickens, Lindsey must catch the real killer before the book closes on Paula's future . . "--
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In McKinlay's exuberantly entertaining eighth Library Lover's mystery (after 2016's Better Late than Never), Olive Boyle, a skeletally thin, middle-aged bully, who has insinuated herself into the political life of Briar Creek, Conn., turns her beady eye on the local library. As the newly elected president of the library board, Olive demands staff changes, dress codes, and the firing of the director, Lindsey Norris, a friend of the person Olive beat in the election. A few hours after a very public argument between Olive and Lindsey at the annual Dinner in the Stacks fundraising event, Olive is found stabbed to death in the library. When a young staff member is implicated in the crime, Lindsey steps in to investigate. She discovers that Olive, besides knowing the dark secrets of practically everyone in Briar Creek, had a few murky secrets of her own. Once again, McKinlay invites the reader into an appealing world inhabited by kind, intelligent people and only the occasional nasty villain. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
