& it's great to have them back in another installment of this entertaining series. It was worth the wait. So please can we have The Spook in the Stacks on Kindle now? It's the only one still missing & in the U.K. both the hardback & the paperback are ridiculously expensive.
The Louise Jane character is over the top obnoxious and delusional. No one would actually get by with that behavior in a professional library, much less having the run of one in a lighthouse. Every book in this series has several characters you want to be the murder victims. Why would anyone want to read about people like that when you can encounter them in the grocery store? I read to relax. They are not relaxing. Lucy comes across as a total doormat and rather dense at times. Unless Louise Jane is the murder victim in the next book in the series, this will be the last one I read. I did love the cat. He is the best character in the series.
I just had to say that while I have read every previous book in this Lighthouse Library Mystery series and enjoyed them all, THIS IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE, without any doubts. And even if you are overdue in reading the previous 6 books, you can and will enjoy this 7th book for so many wonderful reasons. Right from the beginning, it captures you under its magical spell. THat is what Eva does with this series time and again. Being a lover of cozy mysteries and of being at the seashore, this book just takes you along as if you were right there. Just so delightful what the twists and turns and the characters and the genuine feel of the library and the seashore and this story takes us by the hand and just never lets go. All cozy mystery readers and all who just want to enjoy a really captivating book should read this one without delay. I so enjoyed this book. I have so missed getting to the seashore. This book gave me the opportunity to feel that I was finally at the seashore once again.
I love the Lighthouse Library mysteries. I have read them all. They are well written, great characters and I am on the edge of my seat and can't stop reading until I find out the guilty party. I am always surprised which makes the book a great read. Once I finish a book I am waiting on the next one and always pre order. Highly recommend.
I love this series. Bertie's reunion didn't go as hoped with the death of Helena. Reading about her, you can see why someone would want to. Until the end of the book and you found out why she was hateful. Not the it's justified, but at least a reason. Louise Jane is sooo annoying but this series wouldn't be the same without her. Please don't let her move into the lighthouse. I think all the staff would quit with her 24 hour access to the library. They'd need to create another way for her to get to her room. Can't wait for next one.
This is the 7th in the series (out of 8) and very close to being the best. I actually thought I had it figured out but was wrong. That is what I like about this series. Lots of clues, many of them misleading! The Lighthouse Library sounds adorable and the plot is engaging and the characters interesting, including a couple obnoxious ones to throw us off the track. And a very nice penultimate ending and ending. Lots of good stuff happens in this one.
I have enjoyed each of the Lighthouse Library stories and "A Death Long Overdue" was no exception. I know that I would love visiting this library in the lighthouse, as I'm reading I can easily imagine the setting. And Lucy's tiny, charming apartment at the top of the lighthouse lends to the enjoyment. It's great revisiting the characters, lovely to watch Lucy and Connor advance in their relationship and in the midst of it all a maze of mystery going back 25 years up to very recently. I'm really looking forward to the next book!
