Product description


Praise for the New York Times bestselling Library Lover's Mystery series:

"Terrific...intelligent, fun, and lively."--Miranda James, New York Times bestselling author of the Cat in the Stacks Mysteries

"A sparkling setting, lovely characters, books, knitting and chowder! What more could any reader ask?"-- Lorna Barrett, New York Times bestselling author

"Fast-paced and fun."-- Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author of the Bibliophile Mysteries

"With a remote coastal setting as memorable as Manderley and a kind-hearted, loyal librarian as the novel's heroine, Books Can Be Deceiving is sure to charm cozy readers everywhere.-- Ellery Adams, author of the Books By the Bay mysteries

"What a great read!...McKinlay has been a librarian, and her snappy storyline, fun characters, and young library director with backbone make for a winning formula."--Library Journal

About the Author

The hardest decision Jenn McKinlay ever had to make was what to major in during college. Then she discovered the sanctuary of the library and library science--a major that allowed her to study all the subjects. She loves working as a librarian. After all, what other occupation allows you to research the ethnobotanical properties of agave, perform a puppet show for twenty wiggly toddlers, and try to answer why the rabbit's foot is considered lucky all in the same day? Jenn is the author of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries and the Hat Shop Mysteries and lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, in a house that is overrun with books, pets, kids, and her husband's guitars.
