On Borrowed Time

On Borrowed Time (Library Lover's Mysteries #5)
By Jenn McKinlay
Berkley Prime Crime, 2014. 294 pages. Mystery.

Library director Lindsey Norris is once again pulled into a mystery when her brother, Jack, rolls into town, trailing mystery and intrigue in his wake. But when a dead body is found in the library conference room where Jack was hiding, things begin to look bad. And things take a turn for the worse when he is abducted off the pier before Lindsey's eyes. Will Lindsey be able to find Jack again before it is too late?

I have developed a deep affection for all the characters in McKinlay's, but I might be particularly drawn to Lindsey Norris for her library savvy. What I enjoy the most about McKinlay's writing is that the plots are fast-paced, but believable, and she always keeps you turning the next page to see what is going to happen next. There is nothing gut-wrenching to digest; it is 300 pages of good, clean fun. This book did have more language than I remember from her previous books, but over all it was a very clean read.
