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?

REVIEW

Buried in the Stacks is book three in the Haunted Library Mystery, and I really wish I had read the previous, as this one was so good! I do feel reading the previous would be advantageous as there seems to have been a lot of murders Carrie has had a hand helping solve and I would love to know how and why, but certainly this book was written in a way that it isn’t necessary to have read them.

Carrie works in the library, and she has just been assigned the position of Sunshine Delegate when her first charge just so happens to be her colleague Dorothy – there is a lot of history between these two, and Dorothy is very much a bully and a grouch, so I really felt for Carrie having to visit her in the hospital after she had a bad fall on ice. Though we do get to see them warm towards each other only for Dorothy to be run off the road and die.

It soon becomes apparent that it wasn’t and accident and they she was murdered, but with half the town hating on Dorothy the list of suspects were considerably high, I have to admit I did not see the killer coming! They were not on my radar, or Carrie’s until the very end!

I loved this book, it was a great clean cozy mystery with a hint of the paranormal in the form or Evelyn the library’s Ghost, who helps Carrie out on more than one occassion. I cant wait to see what Allison Brook’s has in store next!
