This is the seventh book in the Lighthouse Library series by Eva Gates aka Vicki Delany, and it’s been a favorite series of mine ever since the first book. It’s always fun to read and wish that there really was a library inside a lighthouse somewhere. I’ve always loved Charles, the library cat that lives with Lucy in her apartment, but he was extra helpful in this book. The picture I found made me think of how he’d probably sit on guard right outside the lighthouse door if he ever got out.
Something special was in the works, and now I can’t wait for the next book!
My Goodreads review:
A Death Long Overdue: A Lighthouse Library Mystery by Eva Gates
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I always love visiting the Lighthouse Library. This time we met Bertie’s predecessor who wasn’t a very nice person, so what happened wasn’t a real shocker. The hunt for the killer was a good one with plenty of good red herrings. I think Sam let Lucy help more in this book than any other so far. Louise Jane wasn’t quite as obnoxious as she was once, but she was still a handful that Bertie sometimes had to reign in.
The setup at the end to trap the killer was great and led to a quick but exciting showdown. What happened after that was amazing! It’s great how this series never just solves the case and ends like quite a few other books have done. There’s always closure and plenty of explanations going on even to what might have seemed trivial at the time. I can’t wait for the next book!
