Publisher's Summary

Halloween in North Carolina's Outer Banks becomes seriously tricky when librarian Lucy Richardson stumbles across something extra unusual in the rare books section: a dead body.

Wealthy businessman Jay Ruddle is considering donating his extensive collection of North Carolina historical documents to the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library, but the competition for the collection is fierce. Unfortunately, while the library is hosting a lecture on ghostly legends, Jay becomes one of the dearly departed in the rare books section. Now, it's up to Lucy Richardson and her fellow librarians to bone up on their detective skills and discover who is responsible for this wicked Halloween homicide. 

Meanwhile, very strange things are happening at the library - haunted horses are materializing in the marsh, the lights seem to have an eerie life of their own, and the tiny crew of a model ship appears to move around when no one is watching. Is Lucy at her wit's end? Or can it be that the Bodie Island Lighthouse really is haunted? 

With The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on everyone's minds and ghoulish gossip on everyone's lips, Lucy will need to separate the clues from the boos if she wants to crack this case without losing her head in The Spook in the Stacks, the delightful fourth in national best-seller Eva Gates' Lighthouse Library mysteries.

Entertaining story....

This was a cute story. The narrator of this book is outstanding. She kept my interest. Each character was made very clear.

Not as expected

I’ve read this author before and was disappointed with how this story line dragged. It got confusing how she flip flopped through characters. The title was more fetching than the actual story.

I HAVE MISSED THE LIGHT HOUSE LIBRARY CREW

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK. THE CHARACTERS ARE FUN, WITHOUT BEING TOO QUIRKY. OF COURSE, LOUISE JANE AND THEODORE COME CLOSE. I ONLY GAVE THE BOOK A 4 STAR BECAUSE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE HORSE AND LIGHTS JUST SEEMED RANDOM AND WENT NOWHERE. THEY MIGHT HAVE BEEN INTERESTING, BUT WERE NOT DEVELOPED OR EXPLAINED AND DID NOT SEEM TO ADD TO, OR EVEN IMPACT, THE STORYLINE AT ALL.

Disappointed

I was a bit disappointed in this book, The characters were a bit predictable and the story was a bit formulaic. I skipped ahead a few times because some of the actions and behaviors of the characters were annoying. Teddy's character and behavior was ridiculous. I'll probably get the next book because I hope that it's better than this one.

Formulaic

The mystery was ok but the characters are too silly and the motive far-fetched and unrealistic. There was also too much emphasis on the romantic relationships.
