Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

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.
