Blue Ridge library director Amy Webber learns it wasn’t all peace and love among the “flower children” when a corpse is unearthed on the grounds of a 1960s commune.

Taylorsford Public Library director Amy Webber’s friend “Sunny” Fields is running for mayor. But nothing puts a damper on a campaign like an actual skeleton in a candidate’s closet. Sunny’s grandparents ran a commune back in the 1960s on their organic farm. But these former hippies face criminal charges when human remains are found in their fields–and a forensic examination reveals that the death was neither natural nor accidental.

With Sunny’s mayoral hopes fading, Amy sets her wedding plans aside, says “not yet” to the dress, and uses her research skills to clear her best friend’s family. Any of the now-elderly commune members could have been the culprit. As former hippies perish one by one, Amy and her friends Richard, Aunt Lydia, and Hugh Chen pursue every lead. But if Amy can’t find whoever killed these “flower children,” someone may soon be placing flowers on her grave.

This is the first book in the Blue Ridge Library Mystery that I have read, and seeing as this is book four in the series it was more than easily read as a stand alone, though to get a better feel for the characters it will be good to start from the beginning

Amy is the director of the Blue Ridge Library and as it would seem a great researcher and sleuth on the side. When a body is discovered at Vista View farm where her friend Sunny’s grandparents live, it appears the past is coming back to haunt them, so Sunny and her grandparents enlist Amy’s help. PJ and Carol used to run Vista View as a commune back in the 60/70’s when it was a time of free love, drugs and hippies, and Amy’s research leads to quite a few potential suspects.

Bound For Murder was a great clean cozy mystery with wonderful characters, it was also filled a few twists and turn to throw you off and keep you reading.
