Enjoyable read in this series

Deadly Ever After: A Lighthouse Library Mystery

By: Eva Gates

Rating: 4 of 5

I’ve read most of this series (minus a few of the first ones) and enjoy it. The amateur sleuth is Lucy Richardson, who works and lives at the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library. Now that she’s engaged to mayor, Connor McNeil, they have started looking for a home of their own. Finding one that they can afford is proving troublesome.

At the same time, Lucy’s ex-boyfriend, Richard, from Boston has shown up with his overbearing mother in tow. The mother keeps pushing Lucy and Richard together ignoring the fact that Lucy is in love and engaged to Connor. When Lucy’s mother, from Boston, shows up, she wonders what is going on.

A death occurs that Lucy gets dragged into investigating. She even ends up housesitting a dog for Richard’s mother. Between working, looking for a house, planning a wedding, dodging the two from Boston, and investigating the murder, Lucy has her hands filled to overflowing.

There is a huge amount of change going on and the book has lots of laughs as well.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
