9780786262267: The Dewey Decimal System of Love

Alison Sheffield doesn't fall into any category. Forget those stereotypes about librarians. She looks half her age of forty, and enjoys the finer things - like her zippy convertible, ice-cold martinis, classical music, and her sensuously appointed apartment. In public, Ally hides her extravagant nature with a French twist and sensible clothes. But after last night, nothing can hide the signs: Ally Sheffield is in love.

Available only in Basic 6 & 7.

About the Author:

Josephine Carr lives in Washington, DC. Her inspiration for writing The Dewey Decimal System of Love was her librarian mother's zeal for books.

From Booklist:

After 15 celibate years, librarian Ally Sheffield is in love, and the object of her newfound affections is gorgeous maestro Aleksi Kullio, the latest conductor of the Philadelphia Philharmonic. The fact that Aleksi is already married is a mere obstacle for Ally, since she knows deep in her soul that the two of them were meant to be together. As Ally tries to figure out a way to get Aleksi to notice her, she discovers some interesting things about her friends, her coworkers, and herself. Carr's tale sparkles with sharp, clever, and occasionally earthy humor, and sassy, unconventional Ally is a terrific protagonist. The choice of which man is really right for Ally may be obvious early on to some readers, but much of the pleasure in this wonderfully amusing novel comes from Carr's realistic depiction of the everyday pleasures and occasional downsides to working in a library; her wonderfully quirky, all too real characters; and her delightfully acerbic prose.
