Intriguing first novel. A "cozy" with an American librarian in London. Ending a bit contrived, but I would like to read more!

A leisurely-paced "cozy," there's not much here that's interesting.

This book is the first in a series. As is quite common it struggles a little. It is a fun read and an interesting view of London.

Fun little cozy mystery with all the ingredients. Attractive "older woman", loves books, librarian, jilted by one lover, finds another. Oh, and a bucket of money lands in her lap at the end to ensure she'll have lots of freedom in future books. Another Aurora Teagarden w/o the southern feistiness.

I need my protagonists to be believable, at least to you and, alas, Karen just isn't.

I enjoyed the main character's voice and could identify with her and her confusion with the boyfriend betraying her and her attraction to the B&B owner. Enjoyed the details about London through her eyes. A good mystery about London, English authors and a mid-life change of attitude about life.

Entertaining cozy mystery about a Minnesota librarian who gets dumped by her boyfriend just hours before they are to leave on a much anticipated first trip to London. He takes another woman in her place. Our brokenhearted yet determined-to-see-London heroine Karen buys another ticket and flies over on their flight, half-seriously planning revenge. I loved the references to London, books, and the ending was just perfect. To be a series. Written by Mary Logue using the pen name Mary Lou Kirwin. HCL librarian Mary S. is mentioned in Kirwin's acknowledgments!
