But one tardy tome catches her attention - a copy of J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, 20 years past due. When Lindsey looks up the borrower, she's shocked to discover it was a murdered school teacher named Candice Whitley, whose killer was never found.

    Lindsey Norris and her staff are gearing up for the Briar Creek Library's annual Dinner in the Stacks fundraiser. The night of dinner and dancing is not only a booklover's dream - it's the library's biggest moneymaker of the year. But instead of raising funds, Olive Boyle, the new library board president, is busy raising a stink and making the staff miserable. Although Olive acts like a storybook villain, Lindsey is determined to work with her and make the event a success.
