"One of the most believable fictional small town libraries. A cozy mystery with a library staff (except one) you’d love to meet in your own town. The mystery was well integrated into the library setting and the librarian acted as if she really had a job she loved. The town’s characters were just quirky enough to be both fun and believable."
"Love libraries? Hate Book-burning werewolves? Once long ago the Shipsfeather Academy was a training ground for an ancient race of dog-shifter librarians whose mission was to protect the world’s knowledge."
"Librarians make the best detectives. I collect books about librarians and yogis. So what a surprise to find both in one delightful book filled with a good mystery, good food, a charming children's librarian, an 82 year old Library Board President yogi, and lots of good books. All in a sweet small town setting. Looking forward to number 2."
"A librarian falsely accused of murder returns to her surreal suburban neighborhood after 12 years in prison. This complex heroine attempts to solve the murder and learn more about the neighbors who never seems to be who they seemed to be. A quiet thriller. At last a librarian portrayed as a deeply dark protagonist you can care about."
