Library Love

From Angie Turner from WHO MOVED MY GOAT CHEESE by Lynn Cahoon

Hey gang, it's Angie. And I wanted to help Killer Characters celebrate LIBRARIES. I loved spending time in my local library as a kid. It just felt so magical, being in a room, surrounded by stories, just waiting to be read.

My author, Lynn, tells the story of how she found her local library during a time when she really needed something to take her away from real life. First, as a kid, when childhood wasn't as perfect as it should have been. Then during middle school when she was finding her way. And finally, as an adult when she was going through breast cancer treatments.

In fact, the last library save gave her the push to start writing cozy mysteries since they were the stories that she relied on during treatment to give her hope and keep her mind on things other than medical treatments.

I can understand her story. I remember going into the Boise State Library when I was going to school and just sitting all day, reading the cookbooks that were available. Watching the Boise River flow past the campus was just an added benefit. And what's better than reading about yummy food?

So what about you? Are you a library fan? If so, go give a librarian a hug. Or a box of chocolates. Or just a smile and a thank you. The world's a better place because of our library system.

See you soon,

Angie Turner hopes her new farm-to-table restaurant can be a fresh start in her old hometown in rural Idaho. But when a goat dairy farmer is murdered, Angie must turn the tables on a bleating black sheep . . .

With three weeks until opening night for their restaurant, the County Seat, Angie and her best friend and business partner Felicia are scrambling to line up local vendors—from the farmer's market to the goat dairy farm of Old Man Moss. Fortunately, the cantankerous Moss takes a shine to Angie, as does his kid goat Precious. So when Angie hears the bloodcurdling news of foul play at the dairy farm, she jumps in to mind the man's livestock and help solve the murder. One thing's for sure, there's no whey Angie's going to let some killer get her goat . . .



  1. I love my library (& all libraries)!

  2. I remember the branch library opening when I was in the first grade and the excitement of having a library card. It's still one of my favorite places to visit.

  3. I loved going to the library. I can remember my mom taking us and the huge pile of books I would bring home. I would take my kids when they were little and they felt the same way.

  4. I love my library! I have loved it since I was a small child. When I was little, the building was the first Carnegie Library in Michigan. Then they built a new building, which I don't care for, but I still love what's inside. I basically get all my books from there!
