5 ++ Cozy Stars
Magic Library Mystery Book 1
I absolutely adore this Cozy! Here's proof: I read an ARC, but quickly pre-ordered because this story is just so good and I can't wait to continue the series! While reading, I saw an email question "What is your favorite Cozy?" TOMES AND TERRIERS might just be that!
The story [only the first in a new Series!] is suffused with dogs and a magical memory Library and some really wonderful characters, including our middle-aged protagonist, her husband, and the dedicated, heartfelt, nurse at the assisted living home. Of course, not everyone is perfect: there are a couple of grumps, some smartypants, and an eight-year-old con artist. But the combination is heartwarming, the plot is super-intriguing, and the difficulties are almost insurmountable. Can't wait for the Sequel!
