I happened upon this book by accident. Oh, it's been sitting on my TBR list for a while, neither moving up nor down. I had heard some buzz about it here and there but not enough to move me in a positive direction. Then, the other day, I was at the library to get my new card. I had a list of 10 books that I wanted to check out. ( The library only had one of them and it's terrible....) At any rate, as I was searching the stacks.... there it was.... as if by magic.
This is the story of Clay, an unemployed artist who gets a job at a 24 hour book store and solves a great mystery in the process. I truly can't say more than that as I don't want to give the discovery away. I will say that I loved the abstract connection to my own life and a submarine that my husband was stationed on the USS West Virginia.
I loved this book. Every minute of it. The right book at the right time, indeed. Find that comment crytic? Do yourself a favor and move this one up to next on your own TBR pile. It's that good. 5 out of 5 stars.
