Village Books by Craig McLay: Book Review

Not my usual read. Those of you who check out my posts know that I love plot driven books with crazy characters, or not so crazy, but I do love a mystery. This one is more about the characters than the plot, and I couldn’t put it down for long. Craig McLay, Village Books, Toronto, book store, book review

The Village Bookstore is in danger of folding – has been for years. The owner is seriously ill. The heirs are eager to grab the money offered. The employees are mostly looking for a new opportunity anyway, but everyone loves the store.

Our hero blurts out a marriage proposal to a woman browsing for Mamet. That starts our journey into the complexity of the employee’s lives and a romance that defies logic.

I recommend this to anyone who likes a gentle look at the lives of ordinary, but odd, people as their world changes.
