THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING LIBRARY LOVER'S MYSTERY FROM THE AUTHOR OF DUE OR DIE

“Avast” in pirate speak means what?*

Answering tricky reference questions like this one provides plenty of excitement for library director Lindsey Norris. But when a shocking murder is committed in her cozy coastal town of Briar Creek, Connecticut, the question of who did it must be answered before an innocent man gets the book thrown at him...

 
Lindsey is enjoying her second year in Briar Creek as the library director, meeting with the crafternoon club, and happily dating tour boat captain Mike Sullivan. But when a salvage company arrives in town to dig up treasure buried on Pirate Island over three hundred years ago, the locals are torn between protecting the island and welcoming the publicity. 
 
In spite of the squabbling, Charlie Peyton, Lindseys downstairs neighbor, takes a job with the salvage company. But when Trudi Hargrave, the local tourism director who hired the company, is found murdered at the excavation site, Charlie becomes the chief suspect. To help him, Lindsey must do some digging of her own before the real killer buries the truth for good…

About the Author

The hardest decision Jenn McKinlay ever had to make was what to major in during college. Then she discovered the sanctuary of the library and library science—a major that allowed her to study all the subjects. She loves working as a librarian. After all, what other occupation allows you to research the ethnobotanical properties of agave, perform a puppet show for twenty wiggly toddlers, and try to answer why the rabbits foot is considered lucky all in the same day? Her New York Times bestselling Library Lover's Mystery series includes the previous titles Due or Die and Books Can Be Deceiving. Jenn is also the author of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries series, including Sprinkle with Murder and Red Velvet Revenge.

Lindsey Norris, library director at Briar Creek, Connecticut, loves her job. She loves answering tricky reference questions. She's settling in for her second year, and has been happily dating tour boat captain Mike Sullivan. When a salvage company comes to town looking for buried treasure, Lindseys neighbor Charlie Peyton takes a job with them. However, when Trudi Hargrove, the local director of tourism, is found murdered at the construction site, and Charlie is the only one there, he is accused of murder. Lindsey does some digging of her own to find the truth.

This series is fun to read, and I like the characters. I'm eagerly waiting for the next book in this series.
