Cayocosta72 Reviews said: "This book is truly every librarian’s dream come true. After fighting budget battles over and over again, librarian Serenity has lost her library funding. What’s a librarian gonna do? How about ripping off the city that’s ripping off its citizens? Serenity begins helping herself to the funds that local politicians have been setting aside for their own personal “rainy day “. With the money she amasses she can build a library to thrill readers everywhere. Problem is, those politicians aren’t too thrilled to see their money disappearing and they plan to do anything to get it back. Why in the world are libraries always under threat? A funny, moving story of our most precious institutions under threat" 
Guillebeau (Josh Whatever) blends humor and mystery perfectly in this comic thriller set in the small city of Maddington, Ala. Head librarian Serenity Hammer has dedicated herself to keeping the Maddington Public Library “a calm oasis of normalcy.” But her idealism proves not to be enough when a change in the city’s administration leaves the library perilously low on funds and at risk of closing its doors. At the 11th hour, Serenity happens upon an obscure city account with a balance sufficient to meet her current needs—and more. Convinced of the righteousness of her cause, Serenity, aided by her assistant, Amanda Doom, accesses the account and starts transferring money to the library. After she manages to pay for repairs to the air conditioning and to their internet service provider, Serenity dreams bigger. She plots to transform the library into an innovative center that would house a community space as well as books. The tension rises after Serenity receives threatening notes from gangsters, and a murder occurs on the library’s premises. Guillebeau keeps things light with frequent laugh-out-loud lines. (BookLife)
Gina Sheridan, Author of I Work in a Public Library

"The hilarious patchwork of characters who run the Maddington Public Library (aka the MAD) take the perennial matter of budget cuts into their own hands. Irreverant and boisterous, this book is for anyone who believes in the power of books and libraries."
