Murder Between the Pages is a novel written by Linda Hope Lee. It is a mystery revolving around Nina Foster, a librarian in a small town. Nina Foster’s best friend has been murdered and Nina finds herself investigating the murder. In the process, she uncovers many intrigues and secrets about people close to her, but she also stumbles upon a man who intrigues her as much as all those secrets.
In this fast-paced novel, you are faced with many characters whose problems and personalities are very much real.
This book is more than anything else an easy read. The fast pace of the plot is, in my opinion, one of the best aspects of this book. The characters are a bit two-dimensional, there is not a lot of depth to them. This isn’t something that makes the book enjoyable, however. I cannot say that I didn’t have a good time reading this book since that would be a blatant lie! I liked the adventures of Nina Foster very much. I liked coming up with theories to who the killer was and most of all I enjoyed the fact that they were all at the end proven wrong.
There is however one thing that really bugged me in this book. The names. The names were mostly either made up or just really cringy (such as a bookstore clerk named Hamlet?!). This didn’t “destroy” my reading experience, but I couldn’t really take a person named Sondra Wagner seriously.
In conclusion, if you are looking for an easy-to-read book to take with you on vacation or you simply enjoy books that don’t demand a lot of energy while you read them, then this might just be the book for you. However, those aren’t the types of books that I prefer.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
