Staff Review: "Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore" by Matthew J. Sullivan


After a haunting past, Lydia lives a quiet life as a bookstore clerk. When she finds a favorite patron dead in the stacks, holding a photo of Lydia as a child in his hand, Lydia's life spirals out control. With her past suddenly coming closer into focus, Lydia is forced to confront memories she shares with no one else. Who was the frequent bookstore patron, really, and how is he linked to Lydia's past? Part mystery, part thriller, part crime novel, this book kept my attention until the very end. I will definitely be on the lookout for this author's next novel!
