The first book in the Book Collector Mystery series
Held my interest from start to end. The uncle's are priceless. They will make you laugh. I would love to have Jordan's job. Surrounded by all those books. Having someone to cook great food and encouraging you to eat. A mystery to solve. Just perfect. Looking forward to reading the rest in this series.
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.
