In the Scrappy Librarian mystery series:

Cleverly presented, and the characters are endearing.”
Library Journal

“in Hill’s series featuring Wyndham, Oklahoma, public librarian Juanita Wills, Juanita has two library assistants, Meador and Mavis, who are constantly feuding via a hilarious quotation war, and the members of her book club have to be some of the most intriguing people ever to discuss the classics. Of course, Juanita can’t help but indulge her taste for amateur sleuthing, much to the chagrin of her policeman boyfriend, Wayne Cleary. . . . This series bears watching, especially by library-loving mystery mavens.


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.
