My Very Own Murder My Very Own Murder

by Josephine Carr

Book Reviews

"I laughed, I cried, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck . . . a great roller-coaster read." --Sue Margolis, author of Original Cyn

"Don't let a celibate librarian fool you -- Alison Sheffield sizzles with sexuality. She is a refreshingly original, hilarious character who will have you up until the wee hours laughing and cheering. If you like sex and books (though perhaps not in that order), The Dewey Decimal System of Love is your number." --Sarah Strohmeyer, author of Bubbles Betrothed

"A deliciously delightful debut with a dollop of devilishness you'll adore. It's a sweet, savory story about a lovelorn librarian who decides to reinvent herself in the pursuit of happiness. The heroine is witty, wise, and self-aware, and I want her to be my new best friend. Everybody who has ever cuddled up in the library with a wonderful book is going to want to put on some great music and be carried away by this delightful read." --Nancy Martin, author of Cross Your Heart and Hope to Die on The Dewey Decimal System of Love

"A luscious one-sitting read. Deliciously funny and screamingly real -- I didn't want it to end! Josephine Carr is an auto-buy. Don't. Miss. This. Book."
--Stephanie Bond, author of Whole Lotta Trouble on The Dewey Decimal System of Love

"A romantic comedy with a hint of mystery that confronts celibacy with laughter." --Amanda Brown, author of Legally Blonde and Family Trust on The Dewey Decimal System of Love

"Carr has a knack for quirky characters." --Kirkus Reviews on The Dewey Decimal System of Love

"Carr's tale sparkles with sharp, clever, and occasionally earthy humor, and sassy, unconventional Ally is a terrific protagonist . . . Much of the pleasure in this wonderfully amusing novel comes from Carr's realistic depiction of the everyday pleasures and occasional downsides to working in a library; her wonderfully quirky, all too real characters, and her delightfully acerbic prose." --Booklist on The Dewey Decimal System of Love

"A strange and uniquely comic work . . . a most bizarre, unpredictable, and thoroughly delightful mess that keeps the pages turning and the laughs coming." --The Tampa Tribune on The Dewey Decimal System of Love

"Carr's quirky characters, screwball sense of humor, and right-on descriptions are marvelous, making the journey to the satisfying ending well worth the trip . . . Hilarious . . . The zingy, thoroughly modern tone and the exceptionally appealing heroine should catch the attention of readers who like their romances lively, smart, and funny." --Library Journal on The Dewey Decimal System of Love
