Bodie Island Lighthouse Library in North Carolina is also home to librarian Lucy Richardson. She loves her work and that she lives in the lighthouse. A wealthy businessman is looking to donate his collection of North Carolina historical documents, and the library is on the short list of facilities he would donate to.

It’s Halloween time, and the spooks are afoot. There are strange things happening, and Lucy isn’t immune to them. She sees a ghost spirit materializing from the mist. There’s a model ship on display, and its crew members seem to move all on their own! When the businessman, Jay Ruddle, is murdered while he is in the rare books section of the library, chaos comes into play. Who would have been so bold as to commit this heinous crime in the library while others are outside enjoying a lecture on ghostly stories from the Outer Banks?

Author Eva Gates does a spectacular job of bringing readers right into the midst of the mystery, and I am thrilled to find a new book in this fun series! You’ll enjoy the atmosphere of the library and the Outer Banks and Halloween while getting to know Lucy and the other characters and trying to figure out whodunnit and why.

Smart, fun, and thoroughly enjoyable, you won’t want to miss “The Spook in the Stacks.”
