Mini-Review: Lethal Literature (Book #4: A Book Barn Mystery Series) by Kym Roberts

Lethal LiterauteRunning an independent bookstore in small-town Hazel Rock, Texas, doesn’t sound like a high-risk pursuit. But when a fundraiser reveals a story with a truly killer ending, Charli Rae Warren will need to scramble to sort out the deadly plot…  Sponsoring the literacy drive to benefit the foster care system should be a feel-good endeavor, but one of Charli’s helpers is definitely on another page. Charli’s dad is distracted and keeping something secret, which Charli suspects is a harmless flirtation with an attractive county clerk who offered to lend them a hand. It’s nothing to worry about—until the same clerk winds up dead…  When nosy locals begin pointing fingers, Charli finds herself entangled in a race to uncover the killer’s identity—and to get to the bottom of a shattering family secret that could rewrite her history in alarming ways. Suddenly Charli is facing her worst fears and her childhood nemesis in order to unmask a murderer—before he silences her for good…

The Bottom Line:  I could go on and on about this book, its twists and turns, quirky characters, and witty banter, but it all boils down to one thing: this series just makes me happy!  I absolutely delight in the fact Charli keeps tripping into trouble, she has a pink armadillo, and her small Texas town is always up to its butt in drama.  I read this series because I know nothing is going to freak me out or creep me out, I’m going to be led down a weird, twisty road, and the big bad will always get what he/she has coming.  Most importantly, I read this series because of the personalities, the characters, and the quirkiness of everyone who populates these books.  Reading should always be about pure pleasure, enjoyment, and escape from reality, and that is what I always find in the Book Barn Mystery series.  Rock on, Kym Roberts, and keep ‘em coming ‘cause I’m on board for the long haul 😊
