Books of the Week of April 27 – The Hartselle Enquirer

Title: “Hitting the Books”
Author: Jenn McKinlay

It’s a cozy mystery. It’s in the middle of a series but can be read as a standalone story.

Library director Lindsey Norris is embroiled in a hit-and-run case when library materials are found in the car. The victim, Theresa Huston, survives, only to be targeted again as she recovers from her injuries from the hit-and-run.

Lindsey must track down who borrowed the documents to give the police a lead – but the results are misleading. Before she has a chance to investigate further, gunshots ring out in the street outside the library.

Before she knows it, Lindsey and her boyfriend are following the shooter in the middle of nowhere with no plan but to find out who it is. Will Lindsey be the next victim?

This light and enjoyable read is available in print at the WBH Library, as an audiobook on Hoopla, and as an ebook on the Libby app.
