In Book, Line, and Sinker by Jenn McKinlay, Lindsey is happily enjoying life dating Sully, the local boat captain, when her ex-fiance comes to town looking to get Lindsey back. His arrival coincides with the visits of a number of strangers to her community of Briar Creek. They have come because a treasure map has surfaced for the lost treasure of the pirate William Kidd, who had buried his plunder 300 years ago, never to return to recover it.
The dig begins poorly, with little success, so the owner of the map finally shows it to Lindsey to authenticate it. Sully comes in just then and points out that the map does not portray the island expected but rather Ruby Island, where 30 years earlier, a family of a wife and her two children were murdered. In Sully and Lindsey’s first visit to Ruby Island, they find the woman who brought the treasure hunters to the island murdered at the bottom of a pit. This just begins the adventures related to this lost treasure.
This book is another enjoyable read by Jenn McKinlay centered around a library I’ve already come to love. The people in the community seem very real, and I found myself getting invested in their welfare.
Allyson Ryan continues the narration of this series. I enjoyed the experience of listening to this book.
Book, Line, and Sinker is a very well-written book that grabbed me and didn’t let me go until it was over. It also left me anxious to get the next book in the series. I give it five stars.
