Mystery Review - Read It and Weep

Today I'm reviewing Read It and Weep (Library Lover's Mystery #4) by Jenn McKinlay.

Summary from Goodreads: William Shakespeare is credited with inventing how many words?*

Answering Shakespeare trivia comes with the job description for library director Lindsey Norris. But when the Briar Creek Community Theater mounts their newest production of the Bard, she has no intention of leaving the stacks for the stage. Unfortunately a villain is waiting in the wings…

Former Broadway actress Violet La Rue is holding auditions for A Midsummer Night’s Dream—and everyone from the sour spinster librarian Ms. Cole to Lindsey’s youthful library pages are trying out for parts. Brought in to play the mischievous Puck is the flirtatious professional actor Robbie Vine, who seems to have eyes for Lindsey. Before her blush has faded, the Bard’s dream turns into a nightmare—when one of the cast is poisoned. Now Lindsey and her crafternooners must take center stage to unmask the culprit before the final curtain call…

*Over 17,000

More after the jump!

Review: This book is one of my favorites in the Library Lovers series thus far. A) I love Shakespeare, and B) I like that Lindsey is determined to move on with her life and not dwell on Sully's stupidity. Also, the mystery for this particular book was more intriguing than some of the other books, probably due to the more personal ties to some of the characters we have come to know and love. Plus I love that Sully has some real competition in the form of Robbie and not Lindsey's lame old ex-fiancee. I've got On Borrowed Time lined up to read next and after reading Read it and Weep I can't wait!

Rating: 4/5 Stars
