For fans of Miranda James and Jenn McKinlay comes an enthralling series debut featuring a librarian who solves mysteries with the help of a ghost in the stacks.

Carrie Singleton is just about done with Clover Ridge, Connecticut, until she is offered a job as the head of programs and events at the spooky local library, complete with its own librarian ghost. Her first major event is a program presented by a retired homicide detective, Al Buckley, who claims he knows who murdered Laura Foster, a much-loved part-time library aide who was bludgeoned to death fifteen years earlier. As he invites members of the audience to share stories about Laura, he suddenly keels over and dies.

The medical examiner reveals that poison is what did him in, and Carrie feels responsible for having gone forward with the program despite pushback from her director. Driven by guilt, Carrie is determined to discover who murdered the detective, convinced it’s the same man who killed Laura all those years ago. Luckily for Carrie, she has a friendly, knowledgeable ghost by her side. But as she questions the shadows surrounding Laura’s case, disturbing secrets come to light, and with each step Carrie takes, she gets closer to ending up like Al.

    " Great premise, but very poorly realized. I struggled to make it through the book thinking 'it HAS to get better at some point!' But, sadly, no. This author needs a decent editor - someone to tell her to get ON with the story, but SLOW DOWN in development of what matters - such as the ghost. Far too much time is spent on what seems like junior-high girl dreams of what jobs, relationships, boyfriends, etc., would be like if she ever actually managed to get of any of those. GET ON WITH THE STORY! Bottom line: the author does have a good idea for a series. Pity she started it so poorly. "
