Lucy, the main character, is Librarian (and tenant) of a library housed in an old lighthouse. When a member of her book club is done in, Lucy sets about uncovering the truth, a quest made all the more urgent when the main suspect is her mother (who's visiting). The story is a real page-turner because the author writes in such an engaging way that holds one's attention and makes you eager to carry on reading.
Readers who like gentle whodunits (not graphically 'grizzly' murders) will love this book, and if you have read Jo Dereske's 'Helma Zukas' series and are clamouring for something similar, this series (of 3) will quench your thirst. (Note: if you are expecting the library cat (as featured on the cover) to be part of the 'discovery' process, it isn't. Cat literally just jumps up on people's laps etc so doesn't really play any part in the book). I'm so glad the other two are on their way from Amazon as I write. CAN'T WAIT!!!
