I was sent Get Booked by Bridget M. Tighe to read and review and it was so much fun. While the cover is not your typical cozy, what is between it completely was. Great setting of rural Montana and a small community that doesn't seem like it has all that much going on but when they do, wow! This is a good, fast and funny read. With endearing characters and a lovely cozy message about life and how to do more then just go on, but how to really find your way back to living. Lovely story, good mystery and fun finally! Loved it.
"Get Booked" is the story of Megan McDougal, a passionate, quirky children’s librarian who has returned to her small home town in Montana after mysteriously becoming a soldier’s widow and single mother. She is finding new joy in life with family, and her hilariously likeable friends in the Half Reads Book Club. When Megan’s neighbor, a crazy cat lady, is murdered, this unlikely bunch of fun-loving readers jump at the opportunity for gossip and a good mystery. The generously vivacious Phyllis, an emergency services dispatcher, acts as the group’s link to law enforcement and no one knows more about what really goes on. The gallant and roguish Sergeant Tim Sayer has his eye on Megan, and not just because she is poking around for evidence and suspects, but is she ready? Or is the kind and quiet mailman Toby, more likely to be the one who delivers? Could raging Ralph Swenson have finally gone too far, offing his neighbor for letting her cats use his yard as a litterbox? What about the cat burglar who has been sneaking into homes and stealing without leaving a single mark or fingerprint? Then there’s the ex-boyfriend, Richard, seeking to reignite passions only to be spurned. The nephew living in the basement has been acting suspiciously, carrying needles, disappearing - could he have done her in when she tried to kick him out? Excitement and intrigue drive this eccentric book club to leave their comfort zone in search of the killer, and only their unique resourcefulness and peculiar perseverance get them clues, but everything is dead ends. Pressure mounts and the reality of danger is real, with a killer loose and the possibility that the illusive burglar is really the murderer searching for another victim.This story, set in rural Rutley, Montana,stands out from other cozy mysteries because it is sexy, thrilling, and hilarious with one unexpected twist after another.
