I love books about books. I read [book:The Bookshop on the Corner|28372019] and loved it a lot more than I thought I would, so I was excited about dipping into this one. We have a small town, a library, and quirky characters sooooo I should have loved this book. My major problem was that this book was all over the place. I am not sure if Halpern knew what she wanted to focus on. I didn't get the third narrator on the audio, maybe it was later explained. but it seemed off. The cover is amazing so I know I would have picked this book up just based on that no matter what it would have been about, lol.

This has a collection of interesting people who move to this dying town and find themselves spending their time in the local library. Sunny is ordered to spend her summer there after attempting to steal a dictionary from a local book store. Kit is there to hide from her past marriage that ended in disaster, and Rusty who lost his job in New York and everything that he thought was important (apartment, and belongings) to search for his families lost treasure. They and others come together each day and soon become friends and continue to search for an answer to their lives and problems. Enjoyable way to spend your day in the library with them.

Recommended by a friend and I enjoyed it very much. Ordered one of the earlier books from this author right away. A Dog Walks Into A Nursing Home.
