Death Overdue by Mary Lou Kirwin

This is the second in a series of books featuring a librarian as the main protagonist.   This story is centered in a B&B in London where a mysterious death results in an Agatha Christie/game of Clue situation.

Karen Nash is well portrayed as a middle age, Midwest  librarian.   She exhibits a stereotypical love of books and a somewhat distracted personality.   Having spent several semesters working in the college library, the portrayal seemed spot on to me.  

The mystery plot works well with the situation.   The characters are classical English boarding house residents.   Every scene doesn't have a "cuppa" but a lot of tea is consumed in the course of the investigation.

This book had the flavor of a 1950s Alfred Hitchcock type of story.   It had a very quaint but nevertheless entertaining feel.

I enjoyed the book.

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
