                       —Daryl Wood Gerber, national bestselling author of the Cookbook Nook Mysteries


“Gates writes with the clarity and dazzle of a lighthouse beacon. The first in her Lighthouse Library series is a puzzler peopled with a cast of Outer Banks eccentrics who delight from the first line to the end. A must for Austen fans, cat lovers, and library devotees!”

—Laura DiSilverio, author of the Book Club Mysteries


“Lucy Richardson is a funny, smart and resourceful sleuth, a librarian fresh from Boston, finding a better life on the scenic Outer Banks of North Carolina. Is it so wrong to be jealous of her charming lighthouse library? Her quaint and possibly haunted apartment?  That hint of new romance? Well, even if it is wrong, I'll still want to steal Charles, the splendid cat, and then eat all the gooey pecan tarts from Josie’s Cozy Bakery. Then I’ll demand the next book in this well-written and entertaining new series.”

                                                    —Mary Jane Maffini, author of the Charlotte Adams Mysteries
