I love the Lighthouse Library mysteries. I have read them all. They are well written, great characters and I am on the edge of my seat and can't stop reading until I find out the guilty party. I am always surprised which makes the book a great read. Once I finish a book I am waiting on the next one and always pre order. Highly recommend.

Another good read in a fun series. I like Lucy and her librarian curiosity, her library friends, and her family. In this volume a reunion of librarians from Bertie's class leads to murder, and a reason that stretches back decades and includes frustrated love and expensive jewels!
Bertie’s Librarian classmates are in town for a reunion at the Lighthouse Library. The she finds out that the former director, Helena Sanchez, also happens to be in town, Bertie invites her to join them for a reception at the Lighthouse Library. Helena turns out to be a rude woman that those who knew are aren’t really happy about her joining them. At the end of the evening, the group decides to walk the boardwalk to take in the view and hear ghost stories from Louise Jane, who considers herself an authority on local history and the spiritual world. At the end of their walk, the women find the body of Helena Sanchez floating in the marsh and it appears to be murder. Lucy can’t help but connect the dots between the past and the present and finds it connecting to a $25 million piece of jewelry that disappeared 25 years ago. But the police need proof to make an arrest for murder and Lucy only has her gut feelings to go on until she can find the proof that will help the police make an arrest and build a solid case while not becoming another victim herself.
This is a great series in a fabulous setting. You can almost smell the salty air and hear the surf as you read. Leveraging published works in the story that always tend to tie in to the story is another added plus for bibliophiles. This is one series I never miss reading when a new book is published.
& it's great to have them back in another installment of this entertaining series. It was worth the wait. So please can we have The Spook in the Stacks on Kindle now? It's the only one still missing & in the U.K. both the hardback & the paperback are ridiculously expensive.
