Arden Lynn is looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend with a good book. Something with a little mystery and maybe a lot of romance. When her handsome neighbor shows up at the library, she thinks she's hit the jackpot. However, she gets more than she bargained for when an escaped prisoner bursts into the library and takes everyone there hostage. As the prisoner terrorizes the friendly librarian and her friends--questioning them about a former member of their writing club who had recently died--Arden worries that her trip to the library is about to end in tragedy. Luckily, things take a turn for the better when Max, showing remarkable abilities for a simple mystery writer, attacks the prisoner. Arden's suitably impressed and when she learns the title of Max's new book is the exact same name as the librarian's very exclusive writing club, she's suitably suspicious and decides it's high time she got to know her mysterious neighbor a little better.
