The national bestselling author of Booked for Trouble returns with another charming mystery set in the most literary lighthouse in North Carolina's Outer Banks. 
Misfortune blows into North Carolina's Outer Banks when a dead body in a boat on the shore leaves local librarian Lucy Richardson racing to solve a strange new mystery....

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...

My Thoughts:

This book follows Lucy Richardson whose working at the Lighthouse Library when a new resident comes to town and ends up dead in a boat.  Who killed Will and why?  Was it a book seller who he was stiffing or was it his girlfriend who was so naive as to know what Will was really up to or was it someone else with a different agenda?  As pressure is put on Lucy when her friend Stephanie is brought in repeatedly for questioning relating to Will and his death.  Lucy is determined to figure out who killed the man and why?

I loved this story as well as the others in this series.  This one didn't disappoint.  It's great to head back to Nag's Head and see what everyone is up to and where this book is going I especially liked reading about Lucy and Connor.  They make a great pair to read about!  Can't wait to see what is next for the group.  Next in the series is:
