A Likely Story

A Library Lover's Mystery, #6

A Likely Story by Jenn McKinlay was a great book. I love books that are about libraries because the author often talks about other books, and if I’ve read the mentioned books, then I feel a kindred connection with the characters. It was great that I live in Connecticut and completely understood the setting of the story. The mystery in the plot was fantastic. The extras features in the book such as a reader's guide and a short story were a great addition to the story. I am giving this book a perfect score—a five out of five! I highly recommend.

I thought that the book was really helpful to reach out to people that are unable to get to the library themselves. I was waiting for them to get hurt by all the traps and get buried by all the stuff that the brothers had hoarded. I had an idea of who was guilty in the story, but boy was I wrong. I was way off. I really liked how the author explained it all at the end. I did not see it coming.
