I have to start my review by saying that this book is not for everyone! There is cursing up to and including the "F" word, there is also descriptive nudity. But very little to no violence described. If any of this may offend you I do not recommend this book to you.
After escaping her past to live in the big city the main character is called back to one small town to help house watch for a friend chasing her love to Alaska. While in town she meets many quirky characters... and a corpse.. but who killed him?
This author took a different take on the murder mystery genre then you usually see. Sure it has all the basics of a mystery whodunit, but even I was surprised by some of the things that came up. There are some weirdos living in this town! I don't want to give anything away in my review so I will just leave that at that.
In order to enjoy the book you do have to get past how odd the author made some of the characters, as far as I know there couldn't be this many weirdos in a small town, but heck, maybe there is and I just don't notice :) But it did make the book enjoyable and different because you didn't know what to expect next, and it didn't always necessarily have to do with the mystery.
So, if you want to try something different, check this book out. I'll be reading the next book in the series soon.
It might seem like I'm nitpicking, but I assure you there would be no end of disgruntled doctors and lawyers if there were books where characters somehow found themselves working in these professions without having obtained the requisite credentials. And what is really amazing to me is that you'd think authors, especially mid-list ones, would realize that the library market is a significant source of revenue, so even though it might seem like a cute thing to have a librarian character, still, those in the profession are well aware of the required qualifications and take note of their absence. Jess Lourey is hardly the only author with an unqualified librarian character - J.B. Stanley's Supper Club mysteries feature a character whose background as an English professor supposedly qualifies him to serve as his town's head librarian, and D.R. Meredith's series featuring Megan Clark was particularly annoying in this respect as Megan had only grudgingly taken a job as a reference librarian because she couldn't find a job in her chosen field of paleopathology. Is the inference here supposed to be that anyone who has at least some grad school under their belt, no matter the subject, is automatically qualified to work as a librarian? Okay, fine, then I guess anyone with an MLS or MLIS is automatically qualified to be an English professor, paleopathologist, brain surgeon, or any other darn thing.
