Описание

After a successful party at Bodie Island's Lighthouse Library, librarian Lucy Richardson is ready to curl up with her cat, Charles, and a good book. But her R and R is cut short when she notices some mysterious lights leading a small boat to crash into the coast.



The two shipwrecked seafarers survive the ordeal-but one of them shows up dead ashore a few days later. Lucy finds herself again roped into a murder investigation and navigating a sea of suspects, all of whom had motives to deep-six the deceased. And this time, she has a sinking feeling that finding the real killer won't be so easy . . .

    Lucy Richardson, Bodie Island's librarian and sometimes sleuth, sees some unusual lights minutes before seeing a boat in distress. She calls the Coast Guard who rescues the couple. However, the man turns up dead the next day. Stephanie, a Raleigh attorney, is on a leave of absence to care for her invalid mother. The deceased turns out to be Stephanie's father. As Lucy and the local law enforcement investigate, plenty of motives and suspects turn up, even though the man has resided elsewhere for a long time. I really enjoyed the Outer Banks atmosphere on this one. I want to go back and read earlier installments and the next one too. Libraries, lighthouses, cats, and North Carolina -- what's not to like about this combination?

    I really enjoyed the first two books in this series so was looking forward to this one. I was a bit disappointed unfortunately. I found the story a bit juvenile, especially Lucy's sudden epiphanies such as when she realized who the murderer was (who, I have to say, I had determined about 1/3 of the way through the book), and her sudden realization that she was "in love with the mayor of Nags Head". No lead up, no defining moment in either case really. I'm disappointed that the series isn't measuring up to the expectations I had after reading the first two books. I still love the setting though. The Outer Banks sound like a place I'd love to visit someday.

    Nice little cozy, obvious villain.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this series! It has all of the magical qualities that make cozy mysteries so endearing and particularly to this former librarian who loves the beach and the pitter patter of furry cat paws, unique "cat-speak," and comforting purrs. To discover a library in a lighthouse, a "studio" apartment for the assistant librarian Lucy in the lighthouse too, and complete with a reading nook with bench seat and ocean view at the window. Add to this picturesque setting a handsome cat named "Charles" to prowl the library and provide purrs and company during apartment time. Simply exquisite and all the more special with the other wonderful supporting cast of characters of library personnel and Outer Banks locals that are also an integral part of the lighthouse library and daily life.

    Lucy is my grown up "Nancy Drew" and I love her 'investigations' as much as I loved the "Nancy Drew" series as a fourth grader reader.

    A library in a working lighthouse, an unpleasant murder victim, and great characters...this is a great cozy mystery. This is a fun read, with a good mystery that kept me guessing to the end. I already plan to read the first in this series!

    A storm is approaching the Outer Banks and our heroine, librarian Lucy Richardson, is watching out of a window in the lighthouse in which she lives and works. When she sees what looks like a boat that’s floundering, she calls 911. A Coast Guard ship arrives in time to save the boaters. Turns out that the boat’s captain is Will Williamson and his much-younger lady friend Marlene. Soon, Williamson is dead and the police believe their top suspect is Stephanie Stanton, a lawyer from Raleigh who’s taken leave to care for her mother Pat, who was injured in an accident. But Lucy believes there are plenty of other suspects the police are overlooking – Williamson was NOT a nice man. Although he spent much of his life working on oil rigs in Alaska, his home is the Outer Banks and he is not remembered fondly if he’s remembered at all.Reading up a Storm if a sweet, little mystery – just what readers have come to expect in this series. It has a terrific setting, a great cast of characters and adequate if not spectacular writing. The plot is “cozy-believable” and the romance is parceled out so as not to overwhelm the mystery elements. All-in-all, a fun read.
