My To-Be Read List is a meme hosted by Because Reading is Better Than Real Life where at the beginning of the month visitors can choose which book I’ll be reading this month. On the first saturday of a month the poll will be up, then on the second saturday of the month I’ll announce the book that won and on the last saturday of the month I’ll post my review of the book.
Whew what a race it was this month. I had no idea which book would win and they all got a lot of votes, then Meet Your baker got the ead and then suddenly there was a tie and eventually the tie got broken and By Book or by Crook came out as the winner. I quickly closed the pol yesterday evening to prevent another tie from happening. So here’s how much votes eahc book got:
– To Helvetica and Back (A Dangerous Type Mystery #1) by Paige Shelton – 5 votes/ 22,73%
– Meet Your Baker (A Bakeshop Mystery #1) by Ellie Alexander – 8 votes/ 36,36%

Get bound up in murder in the first Lighthouse Library mystery!
For ten years Lucy has enjoyed her job poring over rare tomes of literature for the Harvard Library, but she has not enjoyed the demands of her family’s social whorl or her sort-of-engagement to the staid son of her father’s law partner. But when her ten-year relationship implodes, Lucy realizes that the plot of her life is in need of a serious rewrite.
Calling on her aunt Ellen, Lucy hopes that a little fun in the Outer Banks sun—and some confections from her cousin Josie’s bakery—will help clear her head. But her retreat quickly turns into an unexpected opportunity when Aunt Ellen gets her involved in the lighthouse library tucked away on Bodie Island.
Lucy is thrilled to land a librarian job in her favorite place in the world. But when a priceless first edition Jane Austen novel is stolen and the chair of the library board is murdered, Lucy suddenly finds herself ensnared in a real-life mystery—and she’s not so sure there’s going to be a happy ending….
