Dispatches from a Public Librarian

by Scott Douglas

Thoughtful and funny! Perfect for light reading. You will gain an appreciation (and no small measure of sympathy)for your local librarian. Mr. Douglas invites us to his branch of a California library detailing the odd happenings and very "colorful" patrons that are "all in a day's work".

I really enjoyed this. I liked the characters and experienced some genuine tension and scares!

I can easily imagine a group of Victorian women, seated before a blazing fire, listening intently as one of their number reads this story aloud, while shivering and exclaiming softly at the more unnerving parts!

The atmosphere is eerie, and although the pacing may be more suited to a story being read aloud, it's still very enjoyable.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
