“An appealing, tough-minded librarian looks beyond the obvious suspect . . . mixes mystery, humor, and literary nuggets. First rate and fun.”
– Carolyn Hart, Mystery Writers of America Grand Master

Cook the Books is a mystery novel featuring protagonist Juanita Wills, intrepid (aka nosy) public librarian in the small town of Wyndham, Oklahoma.

The story takes Juanita into the world of adult-literacy instruction, as she strives to prove the innocence of her student, Tracy Marie Riek, who is suspected of murdering her husband.

The late Bobby Riek seems to have consumed a tainted cupcake. Was it his wife who did him in . . . or a co-worker at the local do-it-yourself big-box hardware store?

Marion Moore Hill was herself a tutor of adult-literacy students for more than 20 years in Durant, Oklahoma. She has also been a reporter, copywriter, legal secretary, and college teacher. Hill is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, Inc., and Red River Writers.

Booklist

Death Books a Return tells of Juanita Wills, a librarian in the heartland of the country who reads about the unsolved murder of a black high school student more than forty years ago. She begins to dig deeper, hoping to find the truth and bring some semblance of justice, if decades late. But there are those who prefer the past stay buried. . . . [A]n exciting mystery with a non-typical protagonist, highly recommended.
Midwest Book Review

Death Books a Return is a mystery novel featuring protagonist Juanita Wills, intrepid (aka nosy) public librarian in the small town of Wyndham, Oklahoma.

While researching local history, Juanita comes across the 1959 unsolved murder of a black teenager. But no one wants to dig up the past of buried secrets and broken love affairs that once entwined the citizens of Wyndham and the neighboring all-black village of Bryson’s Corner. When her only witness is poisoned, Juanita becomes more determined to bring the killer to justice, even if it puts her own life at risk, in this second in Hill’s Scrappy Librarian mystery series.

Bookmarked for Murder is a mystery novel featuring protagonist Juanita Wills, intrepid (aka nosy) public librarian in the small town of Wyndham, Oklahoma.

In this first book in the Scrappy Librarian series, Juanita takes on a dangerous mix of murder, local militias, and deep-seated racism, as she tries to get to the bottom of a hate crime that takes place in a local church.

Juanita is nothing if not stubborn, whether she is pestering suspects, trying to keep a book club on track, or playing referee to the “quote wars” that inspire her staff to their own version of literary mayhem.

The small-town setting is pleasantly familiar, and the story a satisfying tale of secrets unraveled and justice sought.

Marion Moore Hill is the author of the Scrappy Librarian mystery series and the Deadly Past mysteries. She lives in Durant, Oklahoma.
