Publisher's Summary

It's summertime in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and Bertie James' college class is having their 40th-anniversary reunion. The opening-night reception is held at the Lighthouse Library, and Lucy and her colleagues have assembled an exhibit of library artifacts showing how libraries have changed over the years. After the reception, some of the women take a walk down the boardwalk to the pier, using flashlights to illuminate the dark path, but what's scarier than the dark is finding the former director of the Lighthouse Library floating lifeless in the water. 

Helena Sanchez, the former director, wasn't much loved and spent the party being rude to almost everyone there. As a result, Lucy finds herself in deep water as she rocks the boat, questioning several suspects. But she'll have to batten down the hatches and fast before she's left high and dry...and right in the killer's crosshairs.

Pretty Good

A Death Long Overdue is ok. Louise Jane is annoying as usual. The pace was a bit slow in this book and I skipped ahead to get to the end.

Loved Charles

This had to be for pre-teens. I adore cats and almost any animal
in a story. The story was tolerable. Narrator was one of the most
irritating to try and listen to. Finally get to the end....Charles the cat finds the jewelry "YAY"!!!! Not one word that he was the hero
who finds them!!! I just don't thiink i could stand the torture again! Bad.... Very Bad

Another enjoyable story

I read the first six books in this series and enjoyed this story as much as all the others. It is entertaining and fun, and it is refreshing to have a "G-rated" series to enjoy. The reader was enthusiastic and all the characters had distinct, clear voices that brought them to life. Since I had read the other books, the accents were not what I was expecting. Most of them were fine, but I cringed when Connor talked. His voice sounds like a much older man from the deep south. I was able to get past that and to enjoy the book. Louise Jane's voice made me smile and that's probably what I'll hear in my head when I read the next book. :-)

I love the Lighthouse Mysteries

as usual this was a delightful read. Of course the fact she is a librarian doesn't hurt since I am a retired librarian. If you enjoyed Nancy Drew as a kid, you will love this series for adults. It contains a little romance, friendship, humor and a good mystery. what more could you want?

Really Enjoying this series

I'm really enjoying this series. Love the characters, although I would probably be much ruder to Louise Jane. Charles the cat is great. Overall a great light easy listen.

LOVED THIS BOOK

THIS SERIES IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES, AND THIS LATEST ADVENTURE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. AS WITH ALL EXCELLENT READS, THIS ONE FULFILLED, MAYBE EVEN EXCEEDED, MY EXPECTATIONS AND LEFT ME YEARNING FOR WHAT IS NEXT. THE NEXT BOOK CANNOT COME QUICKLY ENOUGH.
