The author of By Book or By Crook returns to the Outer Banks and the Lighthouse Library, where Lucy Richardson must shed light on a shocking murder... Lucy has finally found her bliss as a librarian and resident of the Bodie Island Lighthouse. She loves walking on the beach, passing her evenings with the local book club, bonding with the library cat, Charles, and enjoying the attention of not one, but TWO eligible men. But then her socialite mother, Suzanne, unexpectedly drops in, determined to move Lucy back to Boston—and reunite her with her ex-fiancé. To make matters worse, Suzanne picks a very public fight at the local hotel with her former classmate Karen Kivas. So, when Karen turns up dead outside the library the next morning, Suzanne is immediately at the top of the suspect list. Now Lucy must hunt down a dangerous killer—before the authorities throw the book at her poor mother...

OBX, Library, Lighthouse oh my!! What a great lighthearted mystery read. You will devour this book for every plot and turn. From the youthful librarian lead character, to her mother of affluence and everyone connected to the two, you will greedily want more from Eva Gates. Especially set in a beautiful beach like OBX.

I was hoping to like this book because I like the ocean, light houses, cats, libraries and mysteries, but the writing fell flat. It was quite repetitive how the police were questioning the main suspect. The character of the mother was very one dimensional. The plot was lame. I doubt that many people would still be giving any thought to things that happened 35 years ago in high school.

Book #2 in a great new cozy mystery series. I highly recommend it!
