The Woman in the Library

📚—Book Review— 📚

Title: The Woman in the Library

Author: Sulari Gentill

Publisher: Poison Pen (Sourcebooks)

Genre: Literary Mystery

Book lover’s have I got a story for you! What a clever, intelligent, tense and addictive story The Woman in the Library is. I guarantee this is unlike any other mystery you’ve read before. So unbelievable unique is this “story within a story” concept.

The book opens with very a chilling “Dear Hannah…” from a letter from beta reader Leo Johnson, to Australian author Hannah Tigone, a mystery author writer who cannot travel to Boston due to Covid restrictions. In this modern age of writing, of course author’s have “google” but there is no substitute for hands on information. Being a foreigner Hannah wants to make sure she gets the lingo and social commentary correct on current events happening now. Leo’s letters are sprinkled all throughout the book.

The other part of the book is the actual book Hannah is writing! How freaking cool. It opens up in the Boston library very quiet reading room with a woman’s terrified SCREAM! Everyone is told to stay put and suddenly a foursome at a table in this reading room becomes friends and scooby doo gang of sorts.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ solid stars! It was Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick! I kid. But it did feel a little like the game of Clue and I was all for it. I listened to the audiobook and it was so good! Very addictive. The @bookfriendsbookclub had the privilege of meeting with Sulari and she was an absolute delight. We could’ve talked for hours. It was like talking to a friend you’ve known for years. I can’t wait for your next book Sulari! Right here in Kansas!!! If you need a beta reader…hahaha…
