    Love setting but wedding plans boring

    Lighthouse Library Mystery #5. I love this series but the subject of planning a wedding is not interesting to me. So many relatives I couldn't keep track. Throw in a jealous ex-girlfriend. Almost too soap-opera-ish. I love this author and the setting location but just couldn't get excited for this one. Copyright March 2019.

    A Wedding and a...Murder?

    Lucy Richardson is assisting her soon-to-be-wed cousin with her wedding plans. When the relatives descend on them with plans of their own, Lucy has to make a strategy to keep them out of the way. But, someone has gone too far and one of the relatives is poisoned. Can Lucy find the clues to bring this culprit to justice? This was a great cozy mystery. The plot was so absorbing and compelling that I stayed up late to find out whodunit. The characters were dastardly created and kept me guessing. Lucy is one of those main characters I enjoy reading about, and I can’t wait for the next one. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    The 5th A Lighthouse Library Mystery

    Something Read, Something Dead can be read as a standalone if you have not indulged in the previous books in A Lighthouse Library Mystery series. I always enjoy Eva Gates descriptive writing which brings the story to life. I can imagine the beautiful library, the town, the characters, and Lucy’s adorable apartment inside the lighthouse. There are a variety of new characters as Grandma Gloria descends on the town with a group of relatives. Gloria is a Southern lady who believes in proper etiquette and extravagance (which she expects Josie’s parents to pay for, of course). Gloria brings along her own wedding planners to carry out her instructions (oh dear). Mirabelle has her own agenda and is happy to cause mischief wherever she goes. The adorable library cat, Charles is back, and he provides some laugh out loud moments. After Mirabelle’s death, Lucy is not about to let Detective Yarmouth pin the crime on Josie. Lucy immediately starts asking questions so she can quickly close the books on this terrible incident before Josie begins a new chapter of her life married to Jake. The mystery has multiple suspects (all with good motive to harm Mirabelle) plus misdirection to send readers down the wrong path. I was able to identify the killer long before the reveal, but it did not hinder my reading pleasure. There are references to Busman’s Honeymoon by Dorothy L. Sayers and her main character, Lord Peter Wimsey sprinkled throughout the story. The Outer Banks sounds like a beautiful place to live and work. I believe many of us would want to work and live in a library that is inside a lighthouse (it must be a large lighthouse). It is such a shame that Bodie Island Lighthouse Library is suffering from foundation issues which will be costly to repair. Let us hope that the townspeople will rally around and help with the expensive renovations. I liked the reference to Daryl Wood Gerber and her French Bistro Mystery series (entertaining cozy mystery series). Something Read, Something Dead will delight cozy mystery readers with its engaging characters, charming library, delectable sweet treats, and a bewildering whodunit.

    Loved it!

    cozy-mystery, library-cat, murder-investigation, law-enforcement, lawyers, family-dynamics, friendship, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths ***** A lighthouse on the Outer Banks where the town library is housed along with a library cat and a very interesting woman who is a good friend, has some real characters for relatives, and a gift for sleuthing/snooping. The publisher's blurb is pretty extensive so there's no need to recap or do the spoiler thing, but it's all about the characters, plot twists, and red herrings isn't it? Especially when dealing with local law as well as the state police detective! It kept me reading late into the night and enjoying every bit of it! Did you know that it's part of a series? I didn't know until after I read it and I went to see what else she's written! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Planning a wedding can be murder

    In the fifth book of the Lighthouse Library series, Lucy’s beloved cousin Josie is planning her upcoming wedding. Both she & her fiancé Jake want it to be small, relaxed & affordable. Unfortunately Josie’s paternal grandmother has come into town a month early, bringing along a string of relatives with her & a million ideas to try & impose on the happy couple. It leaves everyone feeling frustrated over what should be a happy day. To make matters worse one of the extended family winds up dead & Lucy must help solve the mystery & clear her families name. • I really, really enjoyed this book. I’m a huge fan when the mystery involves family & especially people from out of town. You learn a lot about the main characters when their relatives randomly show up, especially when the relationships are less that cordial. This time we get to learn more about Lucy’s cousin Josie’s paternal side of the family. Plus you throw in hectic wedding planning & it’s all a fun & compelling mystery. The twists of this one are particularly good & the conclusion is probably for me, the best one yet. The lighthouse library series continues to be a charming one, I always enjoy my time reading them. If you’re a cozy mystery fan this is a wonderful series to put on your TBR pile!
