Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, twenty years past due.

Candice checked out the novel on the day she was murdered. Now Lindsey wonders if it could provide a clue to the decades-old cold case.

I don't know how this is rated as a mystery. It is a love story. Truly sappy. One should not have to force herself to finish a book. I give up on McKinlay.

I enjoy this series with the lead character. Lindsay is director of the Briar Creek Library in a small New England town. Good interaction with her on again/off again taxi boat driver, Sully, plus Emma, the chief of police.

This is isn't the last book in the series, but it's the last one I'll be reading. It's more of a romance - and a juvenile romance at that - than a mystery book. For example, there are paragraphs and paragraphs spent on who is going to say the L(ove) word first. Really?! And just why does the Robbie character, who was originally introduced as a famous British actor, continue to languish in a small town?? He's supposed to be the third angle in the love triangle, but for this reader he is just an annoyance. This was a disappointing read for me.
