Time to “Spring” into new books. This month I have several for you to dine on. Plus, my local library has reopened, so I included two library-themed mysteries. Enjoy the weather and the reads!

Another year has ended and once again we take a look back at a few of the many books that were reviewed in KRL in 2020. 2020 was a year most of us want to forget, but one good thing that did happen is that a lot of great books were published! All but one of our main reviewers share in this post their top 5-10ish favorite books they reviewed in 2020. Katherine Costa wanted to include favorite authors and TV shows that she has reviewed, so hers went up in a separate post in this issue.

Quinn Carr loves crossword puzzles. There are clear rules, only one correct answer, and you even have more than one chance to fix a mistake. It’s too bad life isn’t like that, which is why Quinn failed her chance at a Denver Police Department interview and landed back home in Chestnut Station, Colorado. An OCD panic attack may have forced her to flee her DPD interview, but her gift for organizing and making logical connections led her to becoming the Chestnut Station Chronicle’s crossword puzzle creator.
