    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.

    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.

    Lucy has a new case to solve!

    Read and Buried is the sixth story in A Lighthouse Library Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone for those readers who are new to the series. I just love the description of this beautiful library inside the old lighthouse. The author states at the beginning of the book that she took creative license with the size of the building because the actual lighthouse is barely big enough for the staircase to the top (think of it as a stationary TARDIS). There is a cast of characters that include the librarians, the mayor, construction workers and island residents. Lucy Richardson is our protagonist. She is a librarian who lives in an apartment inside the lighthouse (lucky librarian). She is dating Connor McNeil who is the town’s mayor and a dentist. Bertie James, the director of the library, has her hands full as residents clamor to see the found diary and the coded missive. Louise Jane McKaughnan is a pain in the patootie (as always). She does, though, provide humor with her antics. The mystery was delightful. A diary dating back to 1858 with a hand drawn map and what they believe is a coded page (I love ciphers). I like how the author tied Journey of the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne and the whodunit together. There are multiple persons of interest along with subtle clues to help readers solve the crime. The reveal and takedown were marvelous. All questions regarding the mystery were answered which I appreciated. Charles, the library cat, is a good judge of character and helpful to have around when intruders break in. If only Lucy could get Charles to deter Louise Jane. I believe Lucy was happy her evaluation kept getting postponed because she does not like the section on improvement needed (I believe we can all relate). Read and Buried is an entertaining cozy mystery with a discovered diary, a ferocious feline, a surfeit of suspects, construction chaos, a mysterious map and a coded conundrum.

    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.
