Librarian Carrie Singleton is building a haven, but one of her neighbors is misbehavin'. Can resident spirit Evelyn help Carrie catch the culprit who made her a ghost? In winter, the Haunted Library is a refuge for homeless townspeople. When a group purchases a vacant house to establish a daytime haven for the homeless, Carrie offers the library as a meeting place for the Haven House committee, but quickly learns that it may be used for illegal activities. As the new Sunshine Delegate, Carrie heads to the hospital to visit her cantankerous colleague, Dorothy, who had fallen outside the local supermarket. She tells Carrie that her husband tried to kill her--and that he murdered her Aunt Evelyn, the library's resident ghost, six years earlier. And then Dorothy is murdered--run off the road as soon as she returns to work. Evelyn implores Carrie to find her niece's killer, but that's no easy task: Dorothy had made a hobby of blackmailing her neighbors and colleagues. Carrie, Evelyn, and Smoky Joe the cat are on the case, but are the library cards stacked against them?

Thank you so much @BookBosomed1 for this book. I‘m enjoying this cozy series. And thank you for the local chocolates, I love trying chocolate from different areas. The bonus bookmark is super cute.

I was disappointed. I enjoyed the first two, but there were no complications in her relationship with Dylan. Not even when she confessed about her ability to communicate with ghosts. Nothing. I want the gothic smartaleck librarian back. If you only read for the murder mystery, that was a letdown too.

This was an entertaining enough cozy mystery with characters I liked. I don‘t think I realized exactly how many mystery series there are with a librarian and a cat as the main characters! Then Brook adds a 3rd mystery trope that I really had no idea was so prevalent until recently— the mc is assisted, or at least pested, by a ghost. I‘m also reading Dreamland, which is excellent, because we‘re considering it for our Common Read program.

Carrie is a librarian with something different. She has a ghost librarian, Evelyn, that talks to her in the library. When Dorothy, Evelyn's niece, is murdered Carrie feels obligated to help find the murderer. There are several people in the community that aren't model citizens and may have had something against Dorothy since she was not liked.
This was a good cozy read.

A well-written story full of twists that was a lot of fun to read. The characters are believable and leaped off the page.

Be aware when you start reading the books in this series they are hard to put down.

Finished this a couple days ago and really enjoyed it! It is the 3rd in the series, but I have not read the others and still really liked it. Usually I don't do that, but it was on #netgalley and sounded really good! Lol! #cozymystery
