Spook in the Stacks: A Lighthouse Library Mystery
Spook in the Stacks: A Lighthouse Library Mystery | Eva Gates
14 posts | 12 read | 23 to read
Halloween in North Carolina's Outer Banks becomes seriously tricky when librarian Lucy Richardson stumbles across something extra unusual in the rare books section: a dead body. Wealthy businessman Jay Ruddle is considering donating his extensive collection of North Carolina historical documents to the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library, but the competition for the collection is fierce. Unfortunately, while the library is hosting a lecture on ghostly legends, Jay becomes one of the dearly departed in the rare books section. Now, it's up to Lucy Richardson and her fellow librarians to bone up on their detective skills and discover who is responsible for this wicked Halloween homicide. Meanwhile, very strange things are happening at the library--haunted horses are materializing in the marsh, the lights seem to have an eerie life of their own, and the tiny crew of a model ship appears to move around when no one is watching. Is Lucy at her wit's end? Or can it be that the Bodie Island Lighthouse really is haunted? With The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on everyone's minds and ghoulish gossip on everyone's lips, Lucy will need to separate the clues from the boos if she wants to crack this case without losing her head in The Spook in the Stacks, the delightful fourth in national bestseller Eva Gates' Lighthouse Library mysteries.

Book 10 #cozyinthesun @Librarybelle @ferskner a cute holiday edition from the series. I love the idea of ghost horses appearing in the mist. I am hoping for a Christmas themed book from the series.

Librarybelle Oh! A Christmas themed addition would be fun! 4w

And now I can‘t be friends with this fictional character! Just kidding, liking one of my favorite holidays is not a deal breaker for me. I would just be determined to change her mind. I have never heard of anyone who doesn‘t like Halloween. Good thing the rest of the series is so good; I will keep reading. #cozyinthesun @Librarybelle @ferskner

Librarybelle 😮 Yeah...she and I would have a serious discussion about Halloween 😂 4w

I started this series last winter and I'm so excited to be picking it up again. This volume is really best read at Halloween, but this is my favorite cozy series so I'm happy to reread it in the fall. #cozyinthesun @Librarybelle @ferskner

BethM Can they be read out of order? 1mo
IndoorDame @BethM the main character develops some relationships over the span of several books so you may prefer to read them in order but it wouldn't be at all confusing not to, they aren't actually sequels 1mo
MaleficentBookDragon I've read the first one and LOVED it. I have the next 2. I'm waiting for a free weekend to read them. 1mo

I thought this was a pretty good book for a 4th in the lighthouse library series. I love the setting. Lucy & Connor are pulled in different directions but seem to be finding their way. I liked the introduction of a new character for Bertie so I am excited to see how this romantic love interest plays out. Picked up the newly released 5th book just over the weekend from my local library. Excited to read that one soon

So, I guess I'd better introduce myself. I'm a librarian and the founder of the Save Our Cozies group over on Facebook. At least some of the authors thought we did good - hence the photo above.
Also, Eva Gates/Vicky Delany writes darn good books. Go pick one up!

I just love this series. Lucy is the best heroine. This mystery was a bit more mysterious - being set around Halloween and with some spooky occurrences. #readwomen #cozymystery

This is the 4th book in the Lighthouse Library Mystery series. Lucy Richardson is one of the librarians at a library located in a lighthouse on the shores of North Carolina. Such a cool location for a library, and for the setting of the mystery. I love the look at library life and the running of the library. Lucy lives on the top floor of the lighthouse just above the library. This book is a pleasure to read and left me feeling happy.

tracey38 Oooh, I'll have to look for this. I'm in NC and love the coast. Looks like a good autumn read because of the pumpkins! 14mo
ReadingOver50 @tracey38 yes, it is set during Halloween week 🎃 14mo
NatalieR I‘m off to look for this series ASAP! It has everything I love: books, NC, and a lighthouse! 😃 And the book you posted takes place at Halloween! 🎃 Perfection!! Thanks for posting this!! 🧡 14mo
NatalieR Oh my! I found them on Overdrive! Bodie lighthouse is a favorite of mine. ❤️ The Outer Banks is one of my favorite places on earth! I‘m so thrilled right now!! 🤓 14mo

Book 4 in the Lighthouse Library Mystery series comes out next month. I like this cozy mystery series because it combines my favorite things: the Outer Banks, a library, and mysteries.

Aside from the unnecessary mental illness euphemism in this tweet, this whole thread on Twitter is delightful. Click the link and then "show this thread" to find out how the real-life mystery at the library was solved. https://twitter.com/green_grainger/status/981232100740419584‬

jillrhudy I wish there was a bibliography of these “wee old women” books such as wartime romances in England because I would stack them ALL. (edited) 1y
SW-T Secret codes! Very interesting. Thanks for sharing:-) 1y
NHLibrarian Yup! My older patrons do this, too! 1y
PedestalNix I have a load of old romance novels with initials at the end pages, which I figured was for this purpose, but I'd have been stumped by the page seven mystery, myself. Life can be full of such mystery! 1y

I didn‘t love this one as much as I have loved the other books in this series... the main character Lucy got on my nerves a bit in this one and I am not sure why! Overall, it was a cute cozy and am glad I read it! #netgalley #arc #booked2018 #spookyread @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Cinfhen Haven‘t thought about my spooky read yet!! Good job knocking it out early 👻 1y
