Where I Got It: My shelf (Given to me by the author/publisher for my honest and unbiased opinion)
Molly wasn't looking for love — or a mystery — but she found both.
Molly Miller is an overworked and underpaid librarian struggling to raise her three kids herself. The only romances she has time for are the novels she returns to the shelves. Then one day, David Conrad walks into the Fairview Public Library. He looks just like the sexy pirate on the cover of a romance novel her best friend, Lori, has been reading, so they secretly refer to him as The Pirate Man. But the truth is even stranger. His appearance means old secrets are about to be revealed, and not everyone in town will be happy about that.
Who is David Conrad?
David immediately rubs Molly the wrong way. But she somehow keeps getting entangled with him in ways she can't seem to avoid. He claims to be descended from a prominent Fairview family that was brutally murdered in the 1950s. The Conrad murders were never solved, and now that a Conrad is back in town and asking questions, the people of Fairview are in for some surprises. So is Molly. Who'd have thought an irritating Pirate Man could capture her heart?
Couldn't resist this one! Sounds so good.
Molly is an overworked and underpaid librarian who is now a single mother. She never expected to find love again until David Conrad came walking into her life. David is descended from a prominent family that was murdered in the 1950s. The Conrad murders were never solved and with David back in town old questions are coming back to the surface.
I loved Molly and her kids. I wanted her to be happy. Her ex wasn't a terrible guy, but one not made for monogamy. He still cares for her, but marriage is not for him. It was odd that I didn't hate Hank the ex but he was a nice guy minus his cheating-ways. I clapped when he came to the rescue after that one part. Bless him!
It took me a little bit to warm up to David, but I immediately started liking him after what he did for Molly and her son. Bless his heart!
Loved the mix of an old murder mystery. The answer was super obvious, but I liked the mystery aspect added to the story. It worked well.
Some of the people in the town sucked because they were living in fear of the Greens, but c'mon!! Ugh! I wanted to shake them especially those deputies at the end there.
Overall, I really liked this! It was a good read. Good characters and a fun story. Took a minute for me to warm-up to David, but once I did I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvved him. I'll give this 4 stars.
