Book Description

 February 3, 2015
Get bound up in murder in the first Lighthouse Library mystery!

For ten years Lucy has enjoyed her job poring over rare tomes of literature for the Harvard Library, but she has not enjoyed the demands of her family’s social whorl or her sort-of-engagement to the staid son of her father’s law partner. But when her ten-year relationship implodes, Lucy realizes that the plot of her life is in need of a serious rewrite.

Calling on her aunt Ellen, Lucy hopes that a little fun in the Outer Banks sun—and some confections from her cousin Josie’s bakery—will help clear her head. But her retreat quickly turns into an unexpected opportunity when Aunt Ellen gets her involved in the lighthouse library tucked away on Bodie Island.

Lucy is thrilled to land a librarian job in her favorite place in the world. But when a priceless first edition Jane Austen novel is stolen and the chair of the library board is murdered, Lucy suddenly finds herself ensnared in a real-life mystery—and she’s not so sure there’s going to be a happy ending....

  2. My bakery go to is always "Death by Chocolate". I order it for everyone's birthday cakes. Dark chocolate cake, chocolate pudding filling with black cherries on that, and a poured chocolate covering instead of a crisco covering.

    I'd love to win a copy of this new series for my home library.

  17. One of my favorite items at the bakery is Russian tea cakes. I love the raspberry, nuts, and raisins rolled up in the dough with sugar sprinkled over the top. I want to definitely read this book.

  18. We used to get some croissants that seemed to be deep fried and had a light glaze on them at our Sunday morning coffee time at church. I am not really sure how they were made but they were so good! Can she try to make those?

    I am loving "By Book or By Crook"! I will be sad that I have to wait for the next one when I finish.
