Reading Up a Storm by Eva Gates

25894011  This is the third book in the Lighthouse Library series set on the outer banks.  I really love the setting having spent a couple vacations on the outer bank years ago.  The library in the lighthouse itself is unique and has an atmosphere all of its own.  Lucy is a likeable and intelligent main character who drives the story.  I find that the characters in this series in general are more realistically written than in many cozy mysteries.  There is a romantic element that is written in a playful and fun way adding a good subplot to the mystery.

Here the mystery involves a returnee to the outer banks, who ends up murdered practically on the library doorstep.  Lucy’s friend is accused and Lucy finds herself investigating almost reluctantly, although she is eager for Stephanie to be cleared of the murder.  The mystery includes a boat wreck, old tales of wreckers, a long lost father, romance and of course murder.  Good solid cozy mystery read!
