Review: MELODY AND MURDER by Leslie Leigh

“Navigating through a job interview is an emotional tight rope, for sure.” (LOC 34)

Melody is a snappy and witty librarian. It begins with a job she’s trying to land in her hometown. The first five chapters are all about her waiting for a reply while she talks to her cat and serenades herself with her accordion. What a nerd! This was a very slow start. When was the murder coming?

Someone finally was found dead at the new library where she works. It was a homeless guy that often went there. Was he murdered? I would hope so, but the story wasn’t that compelling for me to find out.

Overall, I expected a good, clean murder mystery, and that’s not what I got.

My rating: 2.5 stars
