The national bestselling author of Booked for Trouble returns with another charming mystery set in the most literary lighthouse in North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

Misfortune blows into North Carolina’s Outer Banks when a dead body in a boat on the shore leaves local librarian Lucy Richardson racing to solve a strange new mystery….

After a successful party at Bodie Island’s Lighthouse Library, librarian Lucy Richardson is ready to curl up with her cat, Charles, and a good book. But her R and R is cut short when she notices some mysterious lights leading a small boat to crash into the coast.

The two shipwrecked seafarers survive the ordeal—but one of them shows up dead ashore a few days later. Lucy finds herself again roped into a murder investigation and navigating a sea of suspects, all of whom had motives to deep-six the deceased. And this time, she has a sinking feeling that finding the real killer won’t be so easy…

It was late September and tourist season was coming to an end. A few patrons browsed the shelves but the library was quiet as people took advantage of one of the last beach- and pool-worthy days. All summer the place had been a mad house. Page 56


How do you choose the next book to read?

Totally on impulse! I do make a list of 3 or 4 books I want to read over the next few months…but most often I randomly come across a book at work (i work at the library) and just start reading it. As for the list, those usually consist of books i need to review, books for challenges & newer releases I’ve been waiting to read. I’ve noticed that the impulse reads are usually seasonal type books. Last week i randomly picked up 3 books from our “Cozy Fall Mysteries” displays….they had pumpkins or other harvest type covers… yay!!

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
