Lydia Bancroft loves her job as librarian. She doesn't mind working because it allows her to withdraw into the world of books and to people watch. She especially enjoys observing a mysterious patron who spends time in the reading room. He's way out of her league but she delights in knowing there is a fellow book lover out there even if she doesn't talk to him.
While Sebastian Marks doesn't frequent the same circles as the pretty librarian, he can at least quietly pay attention to her. But when he's in a situation where he witnesses her being maltreated he can't help but become involved in the situation and in her life.
A tangled weave of misconceptions draws them close together and endangers their lives. Will they forge through them together or part ways?
I found Whispers in the Reading Room to be a delightful tale. So much so that I purchased the first book in this series and soon will order the second one too. :) What a joy to come across a new author I haven't read before.
