to her cousin Josie O’Malley. The bride and groom want
a small, low-key wedding which should be easy enough to plan
and organize. North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a beautiful
place for a wedding, after all.
chaos steps firmly onto the scene in the form of Josie’s
grandmother, Gloria O’Malley. Gloria is determined that
Josie’s wedding meet her high standards and she aims
to change every detail to her liking no matter what the bride
and groom want. She’s brought backup with her in the

granddaughters, and Florence who is Mirabelle’s business
partner as well as the daughter of Gloria’s younger
hosts a bridal shower at the Lighthouse Library, but when
Mirabelle takes ill and collapses it puts a damper on things.

just for Mirabelle. It’s up to Lucy to get to the bottom
of things and save her cousin, apprehend the real killer and
get the wedding back on track.
always look forward to a new book in this series. This one
lives up to my expectations, and now I can’t wait for
another one. Eva Gates is a talented author with a knack for
hitting all the right cozy mystery notes.
you’re looking for a new cozy with a library setting,
a cat, and an interesting cast of characters, you’ll
love the Lighthouse Library Mystery series. Each book is fine
as a stand-alone read, but why not treat yourself to all five
for a lovely winter binge-reading spree?
