I totally enjoyed this book. It's my favorite kind of mystery--a fun read by a good writer, with a bit of humor thrown in. And some interesting plot twists. I'm glad I have more to look forward to.

I enjoyed this fairly light read. Jordan grew up with her uncles, whose lives are a bit outside the average. When an opportunity came along that included a job searching for rare books and living in an old mansion (and moving out from her uncles') she took it. There are many interesting characters in the book. I am finding it hard to believe that this will be a series, however. I can't see this one job continuing for long. I will look for a second book.

It took me nearly 100 pages to get into this new series and I almost stopped reading it, but it did eventually grab my attention enough that I will definitely read the next edition when it comes out in December, 2013.

A solid debut for this cozy series. A likeable protagonist and fun supporting cast. A little light on actual sleuthing -- our hero ultimately just stumbles onto the solution.

While the story is set in upstate New York, a few Canadianisms (Kraft Dinner, Muskoka chair) have slipped passed the editor.
