Product Description:

In this Library Lover’s Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of A Likely Story, a decades-overdue book puts library director Lindsey Norris hot on the trail of a cold case…
 
When the Briar Creek Public Library holds its first overdue book amnesty day—no fines for late returns—the volume of incoming materials is more than Lindsey and her staff can handle. But one tardy tome catches her attention—a copy of J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, twenty years past due.

When Lindsey looks up the borrower, she’s shocked to discover it was a murdered teacher named Candice Whitley, whose killer was never found. Candice checked out the novel on the day she died. Now Lindsey wonders if it could provide a clue to the decades-old cold case. No one noticed who brought the book back in, but could it be Candice’s killer? Lindsey is determined to catch the culprit one way or another, because justice for Candice Whitley is long overdue...

INCLUDES READING GROUP RECOMMENDATIONS



Briar Creek Library Director Lindsey Norris knew that an amnesty day – a day during which anyone could return any overdue library item without incurring a fine – would be a success, but she never expected that someone would return a book due twenty years ago. The book in question – a copy of J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye – proves to be even more interesting once Lindsey finds out that the last person to check the novel out was a high school English teacher named Candice Whitley. What is even worse is that Candice checked out the book on the very same day she was later found murdered under the high school’s football bleachers. Given her reputation for meddling in murder investigations, Lindsey knows she will wind up trying to discover if Candice’s killer was the one to return the book. Because if that is the case, Lindsey is determined that this will be one murderer who won’t escape paying for the crime.

All of the books in McKinlay’s “Library Lover’s” mysteries have been terrific treats for fans of cozy crimes, but Better Late than Never, lucky number seven in the series, is a real knockout. McKinlay deftly finesses the cleverly crafted plot of the story while at the same time skillfully developing the ongoing relationships between her endearingly quirky cast of characters. The end result is a marvelously entertaining mystery that neatly walks the line between humorous and heartfelt.

When a 20 year old overdue book is returned to the library that had been checked out by Candice Whitley on the day of her murder, the town of Briar Creek is turned upside down.

Lindsey, the town librarian and amateur sleuth, is determined to help solve this cold case. Could the long overdue book been returned by the murderer? The original suspects are her first priority and Robbie Vine, an international celebrity and current resident of Briar Creek is very anxious to help.

The original suspects included the boyfriend, an infatuated student, her best friend and the school Principal. Any of them could be the murderer and possibly someone not on their list. Lindsey had to be very careful or she could be the next victim.

Jenn McKinlay again creates a mystery with a complex group of characters and so many theories that you won’t be able to figure it out or put it down until the very end.
