Books Can Be Deceiving
Jenn McKinlay
Berkley Prime Crime, Mass Market
**** 1/2

     Lindsey Norris, director of the local library, wants to help her friend Beth get her children's books published. However, Beth’s boyfriend, Rick Eckman, who was an author of children's books, had told her numerous times that she was not good enough to be published. When an editor, his editor, agreed to meet Beth about her children's stories, Beth and her boyfriend had a blow up at the local restaurant where Beth and Lindsey had stopped for dinner. The next day, Beth found out that Rick stole her story and character. She was livid. Unfortunately, when she went to confront him, he had been murdered, and Beth was the prime suspect.
     This a fast paced mystery with great, colorful and zany characters. Enjoy with a nice glass of iced tea and a relaxing afternoon.
