Featured Titles, Guest Post It’s no mystery why Allyson Ryan became a narrator…Her library! Check out the Library Lover’s Mysteries on audio

You can imagine our excitement when we heard Jenn McKinlay’s Library Lover’s Mystery series was coming to audio this fall. A series that combines a cozy mystery with the life of a library director?! Count us in! And narrator Allyson Ryan was equally excited to share her love for libraries—both behind the mic and for our blog. We loved hearing about her sweet mother-daughter library memory. Check it out below…and scroll down to listen to clips from this charming cozy mystery series.

My mother and I used to bond over books. When I was a kid one of our favorite activities was walking to our local library in my picturesque hometown. I would spend hours (and I mean hours!) in the children’s section and then eventually the teen section, reading everything from Sweet Valley High to Dean Koontz. The mysteries were always my favorites. I remember the joy of trudging home in the snow, awkwardly carrying different sized books, watching snowflakes melt on their plastic jackets. It is no wonder that I became an audiobook narrator. And my mother still walks to that library every week.

LibraryReads Review: A LIKELY STORY is just as addictive as the rest of the Library Lover’s mysteries! McKinlay has written some of the most authentic library characters that I’ve come across in the cozy mystery genre. I can’t wait to find out what the employees and patrons of Briar Creek Public Library (especially Sully) are up to next!”—Michelle Ross, Kanawha County Public Library, Charleston, WV

Listen to a clip:

“What a great read! I can’t wait to go back to the first title in this cozy, library-centered series. McKinlay has been a librarian, and her snappy storyline, fun characters, and young library director with backbone make for a winning formula. Add a dog named Heathcliffe and library programming suggestions—–well, it’s quite a value-added package!”—Library Journal (Due or Die)

Listen to a clip:

“Fans of library crime will appreciate the authenticity of the library setting, and fans of cozies will enjoy the development of the relationships among the townspeople.”—Booklist (Book, Line, and Sinker)
