  • Eva Gates’ The Spook in the Stacks

    Halloween is fast approaching. The Bodie Island Lighthouse Library in the Outer Banks is decorating plus getting ready for the spooky day. Lucy Richardson, the assistant librarian has her book group reading The Legend of Sleepy Hallow. The children librarian has planned stories and costume parties for his group of children. Louise Jane has a Ghost Story Lecture Series being presented. A collection of North Carolina historical documents owned by prominent collector, Jay Riddle is considering donating these to the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library. He, his granddaughter and private curator have come to tour the Lighthouse Library. Jay is especially interested in the rare books and documents section. While his granddaughter and curator attend an outside event of ghost stories, Jay requests to go into the rare books section. Lucy discovers Jay there...dead...murdered!! Who would want to kill Jay Riddle?? When Lucy starts her own investigation, she discovers he did not make many friends so she has a lot of viable suspects. She is determined to bring the culprit to justice. After Jay’s death strange phenomenons occur inside and outside the lighthouse. Lucy experiences flickering light, a model ship with inanimate captain, cat and sailors seem to move around on their own. Themost puzzling is the ghostly horse Lucy sees through the fog. Is the area haunted? I enjoyed this book....I love the Outer Banks and all the stories revolving around them...I love lighthouses and collect lighthouse memorabilia. The characters are very well created. Charles, the cat who is essential to aiding Lucy in identify the culprit lives in the lighthouse. He stays in the room where Lucy lives inside the lighthouse at night and roams the library during the day. Charles adds to the story. There is even a hint of a serious romance beginning. This is book # 4 in the Lighthouse Library Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand alone.

  • Cute and Cozy Spooky Read

    Lucy Richardson is a librarian at the Bodie House Lighthouse Library. She is a sweet girl who also lives in the lighthouse. When a wealthy man Jay Riddle dies I. The rare books room, Lucy finds herself in the middle of the investigation. When things go bump in the night and there are more suspects than trick or treaters, Lucy finds herself more determined to find out who done it. Can Lucy find the killer before the murder tarnishes the library's good name? I enjoyed this cozy read. When I read the blurb, I thought ohhh murder and things that go bump in the night. My kind of read. I did enjoy this read. It had the perfect little spooky vibe to it. But it felt a bit flat in some areas. It did not have as much action as I would have expected out of ghostly reads. I also felt that some things that went in bump in the night were not explored enough. I thought that some of those things, if explored more would have added some more excitement to the story. I did find the characters cute and sweet. I especially loved the cat Charles. He was like a little person. He had such character. Conner and Lucy are a cute couple and I really would love to see their relationship blossom more in the future books. Theodore was a quirky man, who I thought was really sweet. I got a kick out of Louise Jane. She was a perfect storyteller and her little creepy boat. What is it about that boat? Overall this book is a great cozy read that will keep you guessing till the end. A charming and entertaining read with a fun and wonderful set of characters. Wonder what else is in store for Lucy and the gang.

    Thanks for your feedback!
