Book Review/Giveaway: Better Late Than Never by Jenn McKinlay

 Title: Better Late than Never
 Series: Book 7 A Library Lovers Mystery
 Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
 Format: Hardcover
 Source: Received for review from Publisher
 Rating: 5 out of 5
 Reviewed by: Tina

 Lindsey Norris, the director of Briar Creek Public Library still has not rid herself of her bittinsky ways. The library is having a book amnesty day much to librarian, Mrs.Cole aka "The lemon's" dismay. Lindsay discovers that someone has returned a book twenty years over due, "The Catcher in the Rye" that was checked out my a murdered high school teacher, Candice Whitley.

 Of coarse because of the returned library book, Lindsey investigates to try to find out who returned the book. Was it the killer? Or some random person. All the while there are home invasions and Emma the police chief needs to make that her number one prority. Candice was a well liked teacher and friend and who wanted her dead in this cold case will remain a mystery until Lindsey can find the murderer.

 Lindsey  still has mixed feelings about her relationship with boat captain, Mike"Sully"Sullivan, not wanting to jinx anything and British theater actor, Robbie Vine is still trying to win Lindsey's heart, but don't worry readers it ends well for this fun love triangle.

 The Crafternoon girls of the library are a close-knit group of friends that I am growing to love.Robbie Vine, the British actor brings life to the story but is a thorn in everyone's side. The killer turned out to be someone unexpected but not totally. It was fun trying to figure it out. Better Late than Never had it all, a library, books, great friendships and wouldn't be complete with out Lindsey getting in harms way to solve a murder.
