Review of A Likely Story
Review (4.5 Stars): Loved A Likely Story!!! Lindsey finds herself in the middle of another mystery when she tries to drop some books off to one of her recluse patrons and finds the dead body of Peter Rosen on his island. With his brother missing, Lindsey must investigate the clues and find a killer before it is too late.
Reading Ms. McKinlay’s books is like spending time with old friends. A Likely Story is charming, well-written whodunnit that is perfect for those cold winter nights. I love Lindsey and all the secondary characters in this series and I can’t get enough of this series. Looking forward to the next book in the series to see what trouble Lindsey finds herself in next.
