It took me a while to get into this book. I did like Jordan’s colourful family background. Once I was about 1/2 way I was completely enthralled. So many unexpected twists. Kept me shocked right up until the very last page! Cheers to Agatha!

The first book in the Book Collector Mystery series

Held my interest from start to end. The uncle's are priceless. They will make you laugh. I would love to have Jordan's job. Surrounded by all those books. Having someone to cook great food and encouraging you to eat. A mystery to solve. Just perfect. Looking forward to reading the rest in this series.

I totally enjoyed this book. It's my favorite kind of mystery--a fun read by a good writer, with a bit of humor thrown in. And some interesting plot twists. I'm glad I have more to look forward to.

I enjoyed this fairly light read. Jordan grew up with her uncles, whose lives are a bit outside the average. When an opportunity came along that included a job searching for rare books and living in an old mansion (and moving out from her uncles') she took it. There are many interesting characters in the book. I am finding it hard to believe that this will be a series, however. I can't see this one job continuing for long. I will look for a second book.

It took me nearly 100 pages to get into this new series and I almost stopped reading it, but it did eventually grab my attention enough that I will definitely read the next edition when it comes out in December, 2013.

A solid debut for this cozy series. A likeable protagonist and fun supporting cast. A little light on actual sleuthing -- our hero ultimately just stumbles onto the solution.

While the story is set in upstate New York, a few Canadianisms (Kraft Dinner, Muskoka chair) have slipped passed the editor.
