“I do like that McKinlay can write different types of characters.”
~ Under the Covers
As a fan of Jenn McKinlay’s other series, I was very much looking forward to try her most popular series yet! Since I haven’t read the other books in the series, I was a little worried that I would be lost, but I thought it would be okay since Mysteries tend to standalone really well anyway.
HITTING THE BOOKS is book nine in the Library Lover’s Mystery series and right off the bat, I could tell that this one has a much different tone than some of McKinley’s other books. The others tend to be more upbeat and humorous where this one dabbles in all that too, but there’s a much tighter focus to these books. I enjoyed the differences and feel like it will appeal to a lot of different readers’ tastes.
As this was my first book in this series, it is also my first time being introduced to Lindsey. She is a very sweet girl who I think is very smart. However, she didn’t jump out at me very much. I think maybe because she is a librarian, she’s a little more quieter and a little more calm than some of the other amateur sleuths I typically go for, but like I said, I do like that McKinlay can write different types of characters.
The mystery of this book is pretty straightforward. McKinlay gets straight into the action and I do think it becomes quite a challenge to keep things fresh over the course of so many books. So I am looking forward to going back and reading the other books of the series to learn more about these characters and this world.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
