Whispers in the Reading Room ~ Shelley Gray

This is book #3 in the Chicago's World Fair Mystery Series.  It is set after the World's fair ends and  Chicago's bad area during the 1800's.  This is a romance/mystery story of Lydia and Sebastian and how two people come together because of their passion for books.  The mystery part of the book is predictable and non-suspenseful.  The romance part of the book is one of drama, relationships and the characters similar likes of the library.  This is the first in the series that I read and was able to understand this story as a stand alone. 

I have mixed feelings of recommending this to friends as I prefer Christian fiction and this book does not cover faith, God or religion as much as I am used to reading.  I was not that impressed with the storyline and how the characters react to situations.  Not my favorite read, but I was able to get through it and finish the book.  I do not plan to read book 1 or 2 as this book was really not my type of story I like reading.
