No Offense: A Novel (Little Bridge Island)
Meg Cabot has a new series to offer to fans who loved The Princess Diaries and are all grown up now: The Little Bridge Island saga. The latest in this contemporary adult series is No Offense, the story of an eccentric librarian named Molly Montgomery, who has recently relocated to the Florida Keys after breaking it off with her fiancé. Molly has just started to settle into her new environment when she finds a newborn abandoned in the library restroom. Luckily for her, the investigator of the case is the tall, handsome, and newly single, John Hartwell. As Molly becomes more and more involved in the mystery of who left the baby in the bathroom, she also gets closer to John.
No Offense is a lighthearted, feel-good read that is easy to fall into. Little Bridge Island is a charming town full of lovable characters and quirky traditions. Though the romance between Molly and John is sometimes forced—John is inexplicably drawn to her from the get-go before we get any real feel for Molly as a character—Cabot still delivers on the classic warm fuzzies we all know and love from The Princess Diaries. The underlying mystery in the novel adds a nice extra hook, keeping the plot full of twists and turns beyond developing the relationship between Molly and John.
