Publisher's Summary

After a career working with rare books at the Boston Public Library, Addie Greyborne is back in her seaside New England hometown - where unfortunately, murder is not so rare....

Gossip columnists love a bold-faced name - but "Miss Newsy" at Greyborne Harbor's local paper seems to specialize in bald-faced lies. She's pointed a finger of suspicion at Addie after librarian June Winslow never makes it home from a book club meeting. And when June's found at the bottom of a steep flight of stairs, Addie's not only dealing with a busybody, but a dead body. 

It's a good thing the guy Addie's dating is the police chief. But both the case and her love life get more complicated when a lanky blonde reporter from Los Angeles shows up. She's trying her hardest to drive a wedge between the couple...as if Addie doesn't have enough problems dealing with angry townspeople. Despite all the rumors, Addie doesn't know a thing about the murder - but she plans to find out. And the key may lie in a book about pirate legends that June published. Now she just has to hunt down the clues before she becomes a buried treasure herself....

Growing on me quickly!

I liked the first book in this series, but didn't really like the main character, Addison. She is slowly growing on me. The storyline and suspense was much better this time around, too!

Can't wait to get started on the next book!!

Pretty good

This is a pretty good book. The plot is interesting but Addy is an idiot. She makes bad decisions Also I was disappointed in how the Lacy storyline was dropped without resolution. She just left town without consequence. Overall it's a good book so I will get the next one. Karen White as always does a good job as narrator.

The great story--just keeps coming Bk2

Book one was such and good start to a mystery series---Book 2 has proved that. I so enjoyed the return of great characters and a new murder mystery (A real who done it?).

Lauren Elliott's story and Karen White's narration are an amazing match.

You will not be disappointed with this series--I am hooked now and will be back for book 3

Great story

But, a different narrator would be better. Kind of a sing song reading . A little hard to tell the different characters.

Unimpressed

The core mystery is worth following but there is too much drama and preoccupation with men and yet another wacky “I love Lucy” type sleuth who stumbles through discovery.
