Checked Out for Murder review

This is the fourth book in the Haunted Library series written by Allison Brook, pen name of Marilyn Levinson. I absolutely love this series and Evelyn, the library ghost that presented herself to Carrie in the first book. Evelyn always has some good insight to whatever murder that Carrie finds herself involved in solving. Carrie did use more control this time and actually enlisted some help. I enjoyed that her mom and dad were both in this book. I really like her dad’s character, especially now that he’s reformed and has a legitimate career. I’m always anxious for the next book in this fun series!

My Goodreads review:

Checked Out for Murder (The Haunted Library Mysteries, #4)Checked Out for Murder by Allison Brook
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I always enjoy reading the newest of this series when it comes out! I just love Evelyn, the library ghost and was just a little worried when she didn’t seem to pop in a whole lot, but her appearances got to be a little more normal later in the book. I like where Dylan and Carrie were in their relationship and continue to be. It was interesting to spend more time with Carrie’s mom, since she was in this book quite a bit more than any others. She and her current husband Tom were in town for a movie he was acting in.

I was proud of Carrie for being more cautious and trying to do a good job of staying safe by taking someone with her whenever she went someplace that could end up dangerous. I was surprised by who the killer was. Because of some very clever red herrings, I had my sights on someone else. The showdown was nice and peaceful. After one murder attempt and some threats, that was a nice change of pace. And everything was wrapped up at the end with Carrie’s dinner she had. I’m already anxious for the next book!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book, and my opinions are my own.
