When Mabel Frye finds herself accused of murder, she does what any self-respecting woman would do, she sets out to find the real murderer. It's too bad sexy detective Leo Watts keeps getting in her way.
Wait, no, the sexy detective can absolutely get in her way, if you know what I mean. Except stubborn Leo refuses divulge any clues he's uncovered so she takes it upon herself to dig up her own. Mabel uses her knowledge of books and her instincts to track down the person who, rudely, framed her for murder.
- my review
- a few notes
Murder in the Stacks follows the prequel novella Mabel Frye, and I loved it just as much as I did the prequel!
I adore Mabel. She’s so smart and sassy, brilliantly funny and clever. She’s the perfect foil for Leo, the detective she meets in the most awkward of moments. The connection between them is fantastic and funny, their banter so witty. I love smart, clever characters with storylines to match. The mystery elements of the story are so good, with lots of twists and turns to keep you turning the pages, needing to know more!
Such a fantastic read!
