    Nora was accompanying her friend Tina to the author event at the library in Milburn, Wyoming. Nora was catering for the event; everyone knew how delicious her cakes and slices were. The two authors at the event were apparently known to each other – but one quite obviously didn’t like the other. Midway through, one stormed off after words with the other – which was the beginning of a nasty mystery that Nora felt the need to solve. But the death in the library was a shock to everyone – the subseque Nora was accompanying her friend Tina to the author event at the library in Milburn, Wyoming.

Nora was determined to find the answers… Death in the Library is the third in the A Murder in Milburn cosy mystery series by Nancy McGovern, and my first by this author. A fairly simplistic plot, nevertheless it passed a couple of light, entertaining hours as the investigation deepened in and around the town’s library. Recommended for cosy mystery fans.

    Another cute little mystery book. Like Nora, still unsure about Harvey and Sean. They both have a dark side and are both super confusing characters.

There is a second author roaming around town who wants to publish a similar novel about the town’s history. This makes everyone with a secret a suspect… including the mayor!

There seems to be a complex storyline between Sean and Harvey that runs through all the stories. They don’t seem to like each other at all or even trust each other even though they are half brothers. There is a lot of angry words here and not only with these two guys but with Nora as well. Sometimes I think her attitude is a bit odd and it makes me wonder why she even hangs out with these two men. She doesn’t even seem to like them a majority of the time. Still a pretty good story and it comes in a ten book bundle if you are looking for a deal. If you love a good cozy mystery, check this one out. What a fun read!

    In this installment which I gather was supposed to be about a year later than the last book, Nora and Tina were getting ready to open the diner when murder once again stopped them. This time it hit a little close to home again, Tina's sister-in-law was killed in the library. Sean and the town thought sure he had the killer, but in a twist that I didn't see coming, that wasn't possible anymore.

Nora is pretty annoying at times, because she simply wouldn't listen to anyone when it came to putting herself in danger, but Harvey could be annoying as well. In fact, they acted like a couple of kids how they were bickering over their relationship, lol. It's a crazy, messed-up town, but there's just something about it that keeps drawing me back in, crazy right? Mrs. Mullally seems likes the voice of reason, and I hope she stays that way! Since there weren't tons of suspects, it was fairly easy to guess whodunit, but it was interesting watching them catch the person.

    Twists in these books keep your interest!! Nancy McGovern is such a good mystery writer. I read this book straight through after finishing the previous one "Death of a Deputy". I love her characters & enjoy so much reading about Nora & Harvey. She knows how to put the twist in her books to make it hard to pick the right character for the murderer. I love her books. It's great to get to read a decent book & enjoy it without all the sex scenes that a lot of today's authors put in their books. Thank Twists in these books keep your interest!!

    As stated numerous times. Proofreading is a wonderful thing. And just like another series it’s amazing that so many things happen in a small town. Also I'm confused as to how 2 people can have the same mother (at least that was the impression I was given since it says Selena was older than Sam) are being called 'step' siblings... Step implies 2 totally different parents for each party, not a shared mother or father, in this case the mother has been mentioned at least once... that would make them As stated numerous times.

    Reads A-Lot

    Nora was catering an author’s talk at the library. Things seem to go smoothly in front of the audience; it’s just when they get off stage that the drama emerges. One author wants to write a book on the town exposing it as full of hypocrites and snakes. Ouch! It ended with another author storming away in anger. Later, a death was discovered at the library. But Nora doesn’t think it’s who everyone suspects it is, no matter what happened in the past. A quick and enjoyable mystery!

    This is book 3 in the series. I have really enjoyed book 1 & 2. This book I had a hard time getting into it. I was more than half way through before I started enjoying it. But once I did I couldn't stop reading until I finished and solved the mystery. I have already started book 4 and am loving it from the start. This is book 3 in the series.

    Pretty good Not too bad, quick paced. Nice mix of characters and suspect's. I just found the story to be a bit unbelievable, how Nora is so prominent throughout the story, she just was to full of herself n was in everyone s face all the time n no one seemed to think anything of it, otherwise the story itself was pretty good..thanks Suzanne Pretty good Not too bad, quick paced.

    Another great mystery. A number of questions answered, but a few left lingering for the next books. What does the past hold that can affect the future so much? Keeps me wanting to continue with the series. Once again tho, a lot of spelling typos. I have found this seems to be a grave problem with ebooks, since I began reading them a year and a half ago.

    Books, skeletons and murder A good light cozy. Don't be put off by any errors in proofing as they don't affect the story. Can skeletons in the cupboard be enough to cause murder? The characters were slightly off (compared to previous books) but still an enjoyable read. Books, skeletons and murder A good light cozy.

    Emotional I found my emotions all over the book. One second I could cheerful then the next second jealous and rude. Nancy can take you into her world and make you think your the main character.

    Quite enjoyable It is nice to read a mystery that includes a little lightheadedness built in. The fun and banter between strong characters takes the dark from murder and mayhem. A natural close invites the reader to see what Not A will do next

    A light read This is a light read even for a cozy. Yet it is still enjoyable. Secrets and lies are uncovered and threaten others in this plot. There is also heartbreak and a testing of trust. Yet it is still a lightweight read, no real depth.

    What a plot twist this one had! It was quite an adventure with Nora as she tried to figure out who the murderer was. I look forward to reading the next part of the series.

    Who dunit? There is no telling who the villain is in Death in the Library. Everyone except Nora is sure Robert murdered Selena. Did he?

Her new BFF, Tina is helping her with a project in their home town of Milburn, Wyoming. While catering an even in the town’s library, Nora meets Selena, Tina’s sister-in-law and Robert Foxworthy. Selena and Robert are both successful authors that have been asked to give talks in the library, related to the writing process. This event was an effort to raise funds to support the library and make some much needed renovations. All is going well until the first break when Selena and Robert got into a loud argument. Selena walked out of the room to give herself time to “cool off”, but never returned. The next morning when Grant Mackomb, the librarian, opens the library he finds Selena dead in among the books. Now Sean, the Sheriff must find the murderer and there is no shortage of suspects. Was it Robert Foxworthy the author who fought with her the night before? Maybe it Brett Almond, the mayor, or his wife, May! Perhaps it was Tina, who also had a very public argument with Selena the night before. Maybe it was the librarian, who says he knows the place like the back of his hand and has even hinted that there are tunnels originating in the basement of the library. Nora is certain of one thing, the secrets of the town’s people could lead to the culprit, but getting them to reveal those secrets can be downright deadly.

All circumstantial evidence points to him...but Nora has her doubts. Arguing with her own boyfriend to let the police do their jobs, Amateur Sleuth, Nora just can't let an injustice run. Especially, as there might be a link to a fifty year old murder case as well. This tale was well written and the characters well formed. For me, this was a quick read. Will be looking for book four soon.

With all the twists and turns, the secrets and past murder, this book is one that will keep you guessing. I recommend the whole series because with each book more of the characters personalities are revealed. And this time I missed the motive, and the hint was right there who the killer was and it was like one of those annoying little things in the back of my mind that just wouldn't form. Just kept nattering at me. I received a copy of this book for a honest review.

    Poor Nora can't seem to help herself! If there's a murder, she has questions & there usually the questions no one else is asking. In this latest installment of the series, several favorite characters are still in Milburn -- Nora, Harvey, Sean, Karen, May Almand, Mayor Almand, Grant, Sam, Tina, and others of course, and the introduction of two new characters Selena (Sam's sister) & Robert (a visiting author.)

McGovern has managed to skillfully craft another intriguing story that is entertaining from start to finish.

    Great Cozy Series I really am enjoying this series. The characters are well developed and became instant friends. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys to read and likes to become part of whatever world they are enjoying at the time. Pick up the first book, Death at the Diner, and you will become as hooked as I am. Sorry no spoilers here. Good reading!
