I was really touched by this story More than a mystery, it s the story of a woman.
A quick, fun read The writing isn t great and the end sort of fizzled out on me it wrapped up pretty quickly with few real clues the story just sort of works itself out and the main character explains how she found some information online that helped her put it together The plot basically follows a woman who s trying to pull her life together after her professor husband leaves her She starts an online book selling business After a couple people around her are found murdrered and one is brutally [...]

We recently got cable after about 2 years I have been feasting on a diet of Pawn Stars and Storage Wars The thing these both have in common is the quest for the elusive Big Find the thing that will make them rich.I think that s what I loved about this novel from the beginning the story of booksellers and the search for the Big Find Things I loved The setting The back story of Little Black Sambo The ending Well edited and fairly well written how many e books these days simply aren t.Things I did [...]
Glad this was a freebie The second half was MUCH better and moved along smoothly, the first half was clunky and had a lot of weird sentence structure I didn t care about ANY of the characters and that is always a bad thing I mean, not one I could hardly stand the main character and for as much life experience as she had she was pretty dumb I hate dumb Some of the historical content was interesting and the setting descriptions were good It was just eeh for me.I did have one quote I enjoyed But d [...]

As I began to read A Novel Death, I thought I had chosen a simple, pleasant mystery filled with fascinating information on rare books It didn t take long for me to realize that there was much to this mystery than had originally met my eye Besides that rare book information, I found the plot engaging and with excellent pacing Delhi is an interesting character who doesn t know when to quit Working my way through all the suspects, their true identities, and their motivations kept the pages turning [...]
It was a good, quick read I enjoyed the details of the fictional Port Lewis knowing immediately it was really Port Jefferson Dehli Laine was a likable character who I wouldn t mind reading about again.
This was a really fun mystery As I said earlier it reminded me of Nancy Drew for grown ups There was some in continuity but I still enjoyed the premise I would give this author another go With experience I think she will pull it all together.
cute but sort of disjointed in parts.
I was pretty good Some portions were tedious However, overall it was pretty good.
Meh Just never really got anywhere.
Fun little cozy about books and booksellers I thought the solution came out of left field and some loose ends were left dangling, but I still enjoyed reading it.
Wasn t the very best book, but it gets extra points by being about booksellers and also being a mystery.
Awful Great premise but bad writing I couldn t even get half way through.
Easy read after Solitary house, and so enjoyable
Great premise but there was a jarring lack of continuity in the story line.
I just can t.
