    Read it and Loved it!

    This was a great cozy mystery. I loved how justice prevailed, and old crimes came to light. I loved how the author wove the past crime with a current murder case. Some characters are likeable and some you want to not like, but for some reason you can't stop reading about them. I can't wait for the next one in this fabulous series. I received an Advanced Reader Copy from Netgalley for my honest review.

    Not as entertaining as other cozies I've read. :(

    Reading the synopsis I thought I would love this book. I love libraries and worked at one for over 14 years, I’ve always wanted to live in a lighthouse, I always wanted out library to have a library cat, and who doesn’t want to find a treasure map that could lead to buried treasure?!? I just couldn’t get into it. It flowed well, there were plenty of suspects to keep the reader guessing, and I really enjoyed Louise Jane (especially towards the end of the book… although I can see how she would get annoying if she’s so antagonistic in every book), but the rest of the characters were just… fine. None of them had me wanting to become their friend or sympathizing with them. And Lucy was just kind of there. She wasn’t that engaging and she just drifted from scene to scene, not even really investigating. The other characters would just tell her things and she was just there when things happened. There was so much potential with the treasure map. I wanted at least a little bit of running around town trying to find the treasure. What they did find was interesting, although if you pay an ounce of attention to the story, you know what they are going to find. The treasure will add some drama for future books, but really didn’t do much for Read and Buried. I know a lot of people enjoy the Lighthouse Library Mystery series, and the various books were checked out from the library often, so maybe this one was just a bit of a clunker…. If you do want to try the series (and you should!) start with book one, By Book or By Crook.

    Enjoyable cozy mystery

    I don't know how, but I have somehow missed this series. Well, no more. I LOVED this book! It features a library in a lighthouse and Lucy, the heroine, is lucky enough to have an apartment in the lighthouse AND she has a cat named Charles. I really liked Lucy and her boyfriend, Connor, who is also mayor. Lucy wasn't over the top in her investigation. Anytime she found out information, she turned it over to the police right away. I also liked how I did not guess right away who the murderer was. Even though there are already several books in the series, I was able to jump right in without any confusion. I will, however, be reading the other books in the series, because I enjoyed this one so much. I can't wait for the next one! Thank you to Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Great!

    ibrarian, library, amateur-sleuth, law-enforcement, murder, theft, greed, Outer-Banks, library-cat, cozy-mystery, friendship What do you know about the Freedman colony in the Outer Banks? That's your free history lesson in this fun mystery at the most marvelous lighthouse library anywhere. The characters certainly are and the plot is ingenious! It's a very good mystery with murder, theft, greed, and even a wonderful plan to keep kids safe while construction workers do their job! I loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    An old diary leads to a new murder

    The Bodie Island Lighthouse Library is shoring up it’s foundation and during the work an old diary is found buried in the earth. It appears to be a woman’s diary of the weather, but then again there is a map and mysteriously coded message as well. The local historical society wants to review the journal as does the history department at the local university. But Bertie locks the diary away for the evening and invites everyone back the next day to review the journal. Jeremey Hughes, head of the historical society, and someone else decide they can’t wait and break into the library to get t heir hands on the journal. When Lucy and Connor come home from a date, Charles the cat draw their attention to Bertie’s office where they find Jeremy’s body and find the map and coded message gone. What the treasure might be is unknown, but everyone seems to have a guess as to what it might be. Firmly deciding NOT to get involved in this case, Lucy ends up asking questions and trying to solve the code before finally figuring out who killed Jeremy and breaking the code. Another great entry in the Lighthouse Library series! I love how local history is woven into the story and ties into modern day families who have lived on the island for a very long time. A super sixth installment that leaves you wanting more and looking forward to the seventh book.
