by Abbi Waxman
I enjoyed listening to this book just fine. I thought I would love it though. It is light and frothy and loved her love for and references to all things books. I would recommend it to Sophie Kinsella or Meg Cabot fans. But unlike with Kinsella and Cabot, I probably will not seek out anything more by Abbi Waxman. The bookish angle was the main draw here.
“Mystery readers were everywhere, voracious, highly partisan, and passionate. They were among the store’s best customers, and unfailingly polite. In private they embraced a bloodthirsty desire for vengeance and the use of arcane poisons and sneaky sleuthing, but in public they were charming and generous. Romance readers tended to be fun and have strong opinions. Nonfiction readers asked a lot of questions and were easily amused. It was the serious novel folks and poetry fans you had to watch out for.”
