    1 thought on “Death Overdue

    1. I rated this barely a two It s the second book in the Killer Librarian series I didn t much care for the first one because it was romance than mystery and the main character was too whiny I gave this a chance, but it s sadly of the same.We join Karen and her new boyfriend Caldwell as they re trying to figure out their relationship Will they be a couple, sell the BB, and open up a new bookshop in England If not, will she return to Minnesota and leave her new man The wrench in the works happens [...]

    2. I liked this one okay, but not near as good as the first one I was able to figure out the killer immediately, and in this case, it took a lot away from the story for me If there is another of these I ll probably read it, solely on the strength of the first one Had I only read this one, I d never bother with another.

    3. Karen and her boyfriend, Caldwell are in the stages of looking to sell the BB that Caldwell and his ex opened together and start their own bookshop Before they can take two steps forward, Caldwell s ex appears back into their lives She wants the BB Before Caldwell can process the reappearance of his ex, she is found murdered by a book case Caldwell becomes the prime suspect It will be up to Karen to clear his name, if they want their happy ever after I have not read the first book in this series [...]

    4. This book is categorized as cozy mystery and I did get that feeling reading it Or it might be due to the fact I was lying snug under my blankets at that time Either way, I m wondering whether cozy in this context is an euphemism for juvenile make believe because that what this book is mystery that generates neither anticipation, atmosphere or complexity I don t ask for gritty or grotesque description, but the writing of this book makes a murder sounds like part of a doll tea party, the narrator [...]

DEATH OVERDUE is the second book in the Killer Librarian series and Karen Nash is back in London She s deciding if she and Caldwell can make a go of their relationship and of opening a bookstore together As they are talking through plans, Sally Burroughs, Caldwell s ex girlfriend and ex business partner shows up and wants the BB back Before they have a chance to discuss this all, Sally is found dead by Caldwell, killed by a bookshelf in his private library Caldwell is accused of the crime and Ka [...]

    6. Plot and character were even weaker than the first book Motivation of the killer is lacking.Librarian Karen Nash is back in England with her beau Just as they are deciding whether to sell the BB and start a used rare bookstore, his ex and old partner shows up demanding half the business and then winds up dead, crushed under a bookcase.

    7. ho hum if you read mysteries you will know who the killer is as soon as the murder is discovered That s not necessarily a bad thing after all there are only so many characters in the story and one of them has to be the murderer But over all it was just kind of ho hum.

    8. It wasn t awful, but it wasn t all that great either There wasn t much sleuthing and the mystery itself was a bit of a disappointment since it was pretty obvious from almost the beginning who the murderer was The romance was lukewarm at best Basically a big meh all around.

    13. I enjoyed the first book in this series but was irritated by the regular references to British stereotypes I accepted it since the book featured an American on her first trip to the UK I had hoped for reality in this second book but instead I got and English stereotypes shoved at me As a British person, I know stereotypes are there for a reason and I accept we drink tea than coffee, we have traditions of full English breakfasts and using English slang However we live in the modern world too [...]

    16. While I didn t enjoy it as much as the first one, I had no problem sailing away to London for the few days it took me to unravel this mystery Kirwin once again stumped me with this one Just when I thought I knew what was going on and had figured out the whodunit, she pulls a fast one, debunks my thoughts and surprises me with a fabulous ending Now the question remains with the ending that she wrote, is the intention to continue the series with Karen and Caldwell or will she end it as she did, ca [...]

    20. Another lighthearted cozy mystery with Karen and Caldwell A little bit happening in this one, however, I deduced the killer early on based on what the person said when the body was discovered The one question that leaves me a bit confused is the age of Brenda I seem to recall reading that Brenda was around 21 however, I also recall reading that Brenda had been working at the BB since Sally and Caldwell started it, and Sally had been gone for seven years if I have that data correct then Brenda s [...]

    23. I found this second book in the series to be a disappointment The main character was uninspiring, one dimensional and stereotypical As others mentioned, everything about this book was predictable The mystery was easily solved as the suspects and clues were transparent Part of my problem with the book was that I felt like it was written by someone in high school It had little punch or substance.

    24. Librarian Karen Nash can t decide if she wants to throw away her past and move to London to start a bookshop with her new flame, Caldwell When his former girlfriend shows up, first alive and then dead, she and Caldwell both fall under suspicion Karen is a rather rigid character, but those who read the first of this series, Killer Librarian, will enjoy watching the relationship between the two bookish loners develop.

    25. You know it s a good series when you don t want to start the last book because you don t want the story to end I stumbled onto this series yesterday in a quaint little mystery bookstore where the author was speaking The stories were light and entertaining, and made me wish I were a guest in their BB.
