Christmas holiday reading… minimal comments.

I read one of this series years back but I can barely remember it and I obviously haven’t rushed to read the rest. In this one Kate Ivory, a novelist working in Oxford, is persuaded to take on some temporary work at the Bodlean and other libraries around the university to figure out who is stealing valuable books from them and how. The library side of the book is really interesting but Kate got on my nerves a bit. I’ve already taken another volume in the series out of the library to see whether Kate’s as irritating in the other books as there was a lot I liked enough to try again here.
