    Great read!

    Librarian Kit Hamilton is puzzled when the police ask to interview her about her best friend’s former boyfriend. She is then shocked to discover that not only has he been murdered, but her best friend Evie is their best suspect. She is soon drawn into the investigation when it becomes clear that she is the only one willing to believe in Evie’s innocence. A very good first mystery for this author! The story was a good one, not too intricately plotted, but well written with engaging characters. I especially like the dialogue, which involved many well-placed literary references (without being overly intellectual) and lots banter between the characters. This was an enjoyable read. I’m looking forward to seeing more in the future. My thanks to NetGalley and Quercus Books for the advanced readers copy made available for my review.

    Great new series!

    Another mystery involving a librarian as the protagonist. Ho hum. But wait......this is not your average librarian and she is not surrounded by average folks. They are all interesting, clever and resourceful and set out to solve an involved murder and prevent a potential miscarriage of justice. This is the first in what I hope will be a long series set in the incredibly lovely town of York. This is a cozy mystery but it is a step above your typical cozy. Thank you NetGalley for the advanced readers copy for review.

    Title: Murder By the Minster Series:Kitt Hartley #1 Author: Helen Cox Genre: mystery July 1,2019 Meet Kitt Hartley: librarian, trilby-wearer, taker of no nonsense... detective? It's a perfectly normal day for Kitt Hartley at her job at the University of the Vale of York library, until Detective Inspector Halloran arrives at her desk to tell her that her best friend, Evie Bowes, is under suspicion of murder. Evie's ex-boyfriend Owen has been found dead - with a fountain pen stabbed through his heart - and all the evidence points to her. Kitt knows there is no way Evie could murder anyone - let alone Owen, who she adored. Horrified that the police could have got it so wrong, Kitt decides there's only one thing to do: she's going to investigate Owen's murder herself. She's read hundreds of mystery novels - how hard can it be? With the help of her assistant Grace, and the occasional hindrance of the library's eccentric regulars, Kitt summons up all her investigative powers (absorbed over years of reading everything from Agatha Christie to Ian Rankin) and gets to work. She soon discovers that down the quaint streets and snickelways of York lie darker doings than she'd ever dreamed, but she needs to watch her step: the murderer is watching her. And they haven't finished killing yet.. My thoughts rating: 3.5 Would I recommend it? yes Will I read more of this series? yes Would I read more by this author? yes Its kind of slow going though out the story , then it picks up and then it goes back to been slow , I do have to say that the author knows how to make the story come to life as well as the characters and the places , but there was one thing I didn't really like and that was how the main character acted at times though out the book , she came off a bit rude as well as insulting . With that said I want to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it .

    A bit soapy

    Disappointing. Didn't particularly like the writers style, skip read the last half, didn't hold me in suspense. But the final twist was a surprise.
