After an awkward first encounter, Birdie and Daniel are forced to work together in a Seattle hotel where a famous author leads a mysterious and secluded life in this romantic contemporary novel from the author of Alex, Approximately. Mystery-book aficionado Birdie Lindberg has an overactive imagination. Raised in isolation and homeschooled by strict grandparents, she's cultivated a whimsical fantasy life in which she plays the heroic detective and every stranger is a suspect. But her solitary world expands when she takes a job the summer before college, working the graveyard shift at a historic Seattle hotel. In her new job, Birdie hopes to blossom from introverted dreamer to brave pioneer, and gregarious Daniel Aoki volunteers to be her guide. The hotel's charismatic young van driver shares the same nocturnal shift and patronizes the waterfront Moonlight Diner where she waits for the early morning ferry after work. Daniel also shares her appetite for intrigue, and he's stumbled upon a real-life mystery: a famous reclusive writer--never before seen in public--might be secretly meeting someone at the hotel. To uncover the writer's puzzling identity, Birdie must come out of her shell...discovering that most confounding mystery of all may be her growing feelings for the elusive riddle that is Daniel.

Bennett has such a way with words. Her characters are irresistibly relatable, and her stories are deeply emotional. I might just read anything she puts on paper.

PageTurner789 I want to read this one! I just got her book Starry Eyed from the library yesterday but I haven't read it yet!

I went searching for a book relating to #moonlight and found this. It sounds cute, and thanks to the title I now have David Bowie‘s Lets Dance playing in my head, so that‘s a win. #FallisBooked

This was REALLY angsty. Birdie is a champion over-thinker. I thought I was an over-thinker but she leaves me in the dust. I did get a little annoyed with that but at the same time she felt very real so it was probably a good thing. Daniel, Jiji, Mona, and Grampa Hugh were delightful. Over all I liked this even though it was darker than I expected.

This book is pretty intense in the romance department and in the complex characters. I would recommend it but carefully. TW: suicide

Full of heart, misdirection, mystery, & fate. Another great addition to the contemporary kick I seem to by on right now.

I'm on the train on my way back from BookExpo (alternating between reading tagged book and SSDGM on audio) and the Hubs keeps sending me ridiculously adorable pics of our dog Pages. So ready to be home!

Enjoying the few and this book while sipping on my 4 dollar coffee at one of the restaurants at my hotel. It's going to be a rainy day, but I packed an umbrella and am ready to explore before #bookexpo19 starts tomorrow!

I‘ve read two books by Jenn Bennett and I loved both. It‘s to the point now where I anxiously await her new releases!

Raised in isolation and homeschooled by strict grandparents. Birdie cultivated a whimsical fantasy life in which she plays the heroic detective and every stranger is a suspect. But her solitary world expands when she takes a job the summer before college, working the graveyard shift at a historic Seattle hotel.

Amie I recently read Alex, Approximately and really liked it, even though teen romance is not a genre that I typically read. I'm looking forward to reading this one. 6mo
Lisas.Library @amie~ Teen romance isn‘t typically my first pick but I do enjoy them when I read them. I‘m a sucker for Jenn Bennett‘s books. Lol 6mo

This was a cute YA contemporary book about two teens who have an awkward encounter & then meet again. Fate? Serendipity? Sheer dumb luck? When the opportunity to solve a mystery presents itself, along with an opportunity to see if they can move beyond that first encounter, how can they say no? They can‘t! Love the Seattle setting, the fun, quirky secondary characters, the two main characters & all the twists & turns. A fun, quick read.

Love all the Goldblum references in this book. No, this is not the first. Yes, they‘ve already discussed it‘s actually “Life will find a way...”

Ah, the never ending debate, ☕️ or 🍵.

Confession: I often start the day with coffee and end the day with tea. I‘m not a one or the other kind of person—I like them both!!! (More importantly, different books require different beverages, right?!?)

SW-T I like both as well ☕️🍵 7mo

I will not distract myself with new books in the library! And then I read “Mystery-book aficionado Birdie Lindberg has an overactive imagination,” on the inside flap of this book and who am I kidding? I totally have to distract myself!

WAIT. Nancy Drew was edited in the 1960s? How did I not know this? She was “flippant and daring” in the originals? How do I get my hands on the unedited texts???

LibrarianRyan Ahhhhhh. Now I need to read them tooo 7mo

I can not contain how thrilled I am to see narcolepsy representation in YA! I‘m only a few chapters in, but this fun romantic mystery is about way more than narrator Birdie‘s possible sleep disorder - which is all the more exciting! As a person with narcolepsy, it is so exciting for me to see this portrayal. This book is out April 16th - go get it!

DarcysMom Your description intrigued me - I just requested it on Netgalley. 😁 9mo
DarcysMom I am on chapter 4 - it is great! 9mo
pocketmermaid @DarcysMom Yay! I finished it two days ago. I‘m still processing. I need to write a review and blast it all over my social media. 9mo
