Falling for Trouble

Sarah Title. Zebra, $4.99 mass market (356p) ISBN 978-1-4201-4185-6
Title’s charming second Librarians in Love contemporary continues the good-natured verve and engaging upbeat voice established in The Undateable. Gorgeous librarian Liam Byrd has taken to the small town of Halikarnassus, N.Y., much as the ladies of the town have taken to his running shorts. But the library budget is under threat from a football-loving meathead mayor, and Liam’s job as library director is looking like a bleak future of stagnation and layoffs. Then the town’s notorious onetime juvenile delinquent, Joanna Green, returns after 10 years away. She’s fresh from a dramatic split with her punk rock band after the others sold out to corporate music interests, and the last thing prickly Joanna wants is to stay in little Halikarnassus forever. But as Joanna thrashes her way through her reunion with her hometown, Liam tempts her to stick around. Joanna and Liam mesh like a good jam session, and their low-key courtship is a delight. Agent: Louise Fury, Bent Agency. (July)
