Morrow Paperbacks. Aug. 2020. 352p. ISBN 9780062890078. pap. $15.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
After a failed engagement, children’s librarian Molly Montgomery moves from Colorado to Florida’s Little Bridge Island to serve as the town librarian, taking a side gig at the Lazy Parrot Inn to make ends meet. John Hartwell has returned to his island home to fill the role of sheriff, uprooting his teenage daughter in the process. When Molly finds an abandoned baby in the library bathroom and John is called in to investigate, sparks fly as the two disagree on every conceivable point of what could have possibly happened. Discovering the child’s mother in a trashed room of the new library, John believes he has the clues he needs to catch the culprit and advises Molly to let him handle the case alone. But Molly, a longtime fan of true crime podcasts, is determined to sleuth out the mystery herself. As their paths continue to cross, their differing opinions create a tense situation that also heightens the brewing chemistry between them.
VERDICT Cabot returns to the “Little Bridge Island” series with another engaging read (after No Judgment). Rom-com fans looking to extend the beach-reading season should find this their next go-to read.
