Book Review - Book, Line and Sinker by Jenn McKinlay

This is the second Library Lover's Mystery as Library Director Lindsey Norris is dragged into a local political dispute over buried treasure on an island offshore from their town of Briar Creek. In spite of a brutal murder, this is a cosy mystery as the townsfolk all seem to want to help their Chief of Police gather evidence and catch the bad guys. I particularly liked how the children's librarian smuggled her colleague's dog out of the library in the costume she wore for storytime. I'm sure Eric Carle would approve of his very hungry caterpillar being put to such use! You even get a recipe at the end but I had to Google almond bark to find out how to make Beth's Lemon-Almond Cookie Truffles. American baking has some idiosyncracies all its own. Wendy
