Lethal Literature (A Book Barn Mystery #4) Reviews
****Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review******
It took until the armadillo appeared for me to realise that I'd already read one book in this series! And I liked this a lot less than the other one that I read (which was book 2). Back then Charli was a bit too stupid to live and the plot not quite balanced, but I liked the setting. But in this one, it was all just a bit too much. The writing needed some work - I got super confused early on about Charli's relationship history and ended ...more
Princess is back, both of them, to solve another mystery of a murder in town. This time she thinks her father will be accused of the crime, but when he isn't and someone tries to kill him and blow her to smithereens they all must team up to track down the culprit before someone ends up BBQ.
I love the armadillo Princess in this series! If only the armadillos that invade my yard were so nice and gentile instead of digging holes everywhere you look!
I was given an eARC by the publisher through NetG ...more

Charli Rae Warren runs her book store in Hazel Rock Texas. She loves what she does but she wishes that she hadn't found a body. Ava was a friend from her youth. Now she's dead. Who killed her and why? Charli is fearless. I like that she's compassionate as well as a fighter. Family secrets play a part in this story. They added strong emotional elements to the book. I enjoyed how Kym Roberts was able to write a suspenseful mystery with humor and a touch of romance. Her characters are complex and t ...more
I was immediately drawn to this book for two reasons:
1. Cozy Mystery - and I LOVE cozy mysteries
2. Set in TEXAS!!
So those two qualities prompted me to read Lethal Literature by Kym Roberts. And while the premise of the novel is sound, it left me feeling a bit "bleh."
In a nutshell, Charli Rae Warren runs a bookstore with her father called "The Book Barn." They are currently working together to host a fundraiser for underprivileged foster children in addition to keeping themselves busy in the hubb ...more
Lethal Literature by Kym Roberts is the 4th book in A Book Barn Mystery series, and another fun addition. This book had a surprise ending, which I always enjoy. Charli Rae Warren is helping with a literacy book drive after the person in charged is murdered. There is so much going on in Charli's life that she seems to be running in circles, with secrets and twists and turns around every corner. I found this book to be a quick read, with a well developed plot and characters. If you love cozy myste ...more

Book #4: Book Barn Mystery Series
My Rating: 4/5 stars
The Bottom Line: I could go on and on about this book, its twists and turns, quirky characters, and witty banter, but it all boils down to one thing: this series just makes me happy! I absolutely delight in the fact Charli keeps tripping into trouble, she has a pink armadillo, and her small Texas town is always up to its butt in drama. I read this series because I know nothing is ...more
