I loved the setting of this book. A library in a lighthouse, not only that but you live in that same lighthouse with your cat, beside the ocean, you cant get any better than that. Though I enjoyed the mystery of the Jane Austen books coming up missing and the murder which occurred inside the lighthouse, the story was a bit boring. I am hoping in book 2, things will become more exciting.

I liked the characters, but the plot and interactions were very sorority drama. The motivations and rationale of the characters were immature. I was frustrated and set the book aside twice because of the teen drama feeling of it. Eventually I finished it and did not change my opinion. I like the characters and wouldn't mind reading more with them, but the pouty teen-bully histrionics was wearisome.

I do not read many cozies unless there are things that stand out to pique my interest (like a lighthouse library). I enjoyed this and liked the library staff characters. I loved the library cat, Charles. There were a few poor decisions, but I will be interested in the possibility of where this series may lead.
