After all, murder is Annie’s business — well, sort of.

The library board wants to declare its independence from new member, retired Brigadier General Charlton “Bud” Hatch, a man accustomed to being in charge.

    " This is the first of this series I read, but I just wasn't overly impressed with it so I don't think I will be continuing with them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivy | 10/5/2013

    " I found this to be one of the better books in this series. The author didn't drop as many name of other mystery writers as she has in other books in the series. There was more action and there was just enough clues dropped along the way to keep me trying to fogure out who the killer might be. "

    " This is a cozy mystery meaning there is not much graphic violence or anything. It's brain candy. If you enjoy one you will probably enjoy them all, until they seem too the same. However, if anyone knows a guy like her husband Mac can you send him my way please? "
