Title: “Hitting the Books” 
Author: Jenn McKinlay

This is a cozy mystery. It is in the middle of a series but can be read as a standalone story.   

Library director Lindsey Norris is drawn into a hit-and-run case when library materials are found in the car. The victim, Theresa Huston, survives, only to be targeted again while recovering from her injuries of the hit-and-run.  

Lindsey has to track down who borrowed the materials to give the police a lead – but the results are deceiving. Before she has a chance to investigate further, shots ring out on the street outside the library.   

Before she knows it, Lindsey and her boyfriend are following the shooter into the middle of nowhere with no plan but to find out who it is. Will Lindsey be the next victim?   

This light, enjoyable read is available in print at the WBH Library, as an audiobook on Hoopla and an Ebook on the Libby app.
