The national bestselling author of Booked for Trouble returns with another charming mystery set in the most literary lighthouse in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Misfortune blows into North Carolina’s Outer Banks when a dead body in a boat on the shore leaves local librarian Lucy Richardson racing to solve a strange new mystery.... After a successful party at Bodie Island’s Lighthouse Library, librarian Lucy Richardson is ready to curl up with her cat, Charles, and a good book. But her R and R is cut short when she notices some mysterious lights leading a small boat to crash into the coast. The two shipwrecked seafarers survive the ordeal—but one of them shows up dead ashore a few days later. Lucy finds herself again roped into a murder investigation and navigating a sea of suspects, all of whom had motives to deep-six the deceased. And this time, she has a sinking feeling that finding the real killer won’t be so easy...
What I thought of this book.
Lucy has been enjoying her time at the Lighthouse Library. She has two very nice looking men who have been viaing for her attention, though she finally decides which one she likes more. Everything is going fine but then a man ends up dead.
It seems her new friend could be the culprit but she really doesn’t think she did it and it’s not like the man didn’t have enemies. Lucy tries to stay out of things but with her friend being a suspect it’s hard for her to do so, but the detective wants her to stay out of it.
Just when she thinks she will stay out of it she finds out some new information which makes it hard for her to not look into it and then someone tries to warn her away. Lucy is getting to close to the truth but she is not sure exactly what truth is at that time.
This was another fun mystery with my favorite lighthouse gang. I really like Lucy and knack for finding out who the killer is. I am glad she decided on a guy as I don’t care for triangles though not sure if it was the one I would have picked…lol. It is always fun picking back up with a great cast of secondary characters like Birdie, Conner, Butch and even Detective Wade (I know he has some charm down in him somewhere.)
It had a good mystery and I think I figured it out about the same time as Lucy and if you are a fan of cozies then you will like this series.
I really have been enjoying Elise Arsenault narrate this series. To me she is Lucy and does a great job.
