    LOVED!

    LOVED this book! Charming and fun story that made me smile - even as I turned the pages just as quickly as possible. Quinn is a research librarian who assists James, a library patron with some detailed research. He literally buys her time from the library manager. Quinn then finds herself in the middle of a mystery and surrounded by half-truths and lies, not knowing what to believe or who to trust...even as she fights her attraction to James....or whatever his name is. This is a great book, and that it is the first published work by this author is amazing. Normally, a first book shows potential and the future books improve upon the potential. Not true in this case, rather the author started out as wonderful, from the quirky characters I cared about to the fun story. She is now on my must read authors' list and one who's books I'll be anxiously waiting for. Do not hesitate to buy this book - it is worth every dime.

    Cute

    The Librarian and the Spy started out a bit slow for me and I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but really starts to pick up in the second half of the book. From that point I felt the pacing was pretty good. The story is written in third person but we only get Quinn’s point of view. I would prefer to have both Quinn and James, but Quinn was still a pretty good narrator and certainly entertaining. I will admit that I didn’t really get their chemistry in the beginning and their first time kissing felt a little out of the blue just because I didn’t believe in their passion up to that point. I really enjoyed the concept of this book and in particular all the library references. You can truly tell that Susan Mann knows what she’s talking about when she references library customers, MARC records, and cataloging. As someone who works in a library I really enjoyed how much I could relate to the story. Plus it’s nice to see the nerdy book culture make the win for this spy adventure. I liked both Quinn and James, though I wish we could have gotten inside of James’s head as well. Quinn is everything nerdy you want in a librarian but she’s also tough and can fight her way out of a situation thanks to her military family and pack of older brothers. She was a pretty good narrator and had some great humorous moments when she did something embarrassing. What we do learn about James is great but I feel he wasn’t as developed as strongly as Quinn. This is likely due to only seeing James through Quinn’s eyes and only knowing what he’s willing to share verbally with Quinn. I hope we can learn more about him in future books. My only real criticism was that there were times where I felt the dialogue was a bit stiff or not like how people would really speak. Other times the writing outside of dialogue might have been technically accurate but was missing any real emotion that grabs the reader. This occurred mostly in the beginning before any action began.

    A great first story of a series

    I really enjoyed this story. It was definitely one that kept me wanting to keep reading despite needing to do other things. The characters are interesting and engaging, there's humour, romance, and mystery.
