In this series debut perfect for fans of Jenn McKinlay and Miranda James, Rain Wilmot must discover the killer, before the book closes on her life.

Rain Wilmot has just returned to her family’s waterfront log cabin in Lofty Pines, Wisconsin after the untimely death of her husband. The cabin is peaceful compared to Rain’s corporate job and comes with an informal library that Rain’s mother, Willow, used to run. But as Rain prepares for the re-opening of the library, all hopes for a peaceful life are shattered when she discovers the body of Thornton Hughes, a real estate buyer, on the premises.

The community of Lofty Pines starts pointing fingers at Willow, since she has been unusually absent from the library this summer. A fishy rumor surfaces when Rain learns that Willow had been spending a lot of time with Thornton. The town even thought they were having an affair.

While theories swirl about Thornton’s death, Rain takes it upon herself to solve the case to exonerate her mother. As more clues surface, Rain will have to piece together the mystery. But if she isn’t careful, she may be the next to end up dead in the water in Murder at the Lakeside Library, the first in Holly Danvers’ new Lakeside Library mysteries.

REVIEW

The current heat wave we are having here in Scotland makes me wish I was staying in a waterfront log cabin in Lofty Pines, it sounds utterly like and ideal vacation, minus the murder! Rain Wilmot has returned to her family’s cabin on the lake following the death of her husband, she us instantly accosted by her neighbour and friend Julia to get the library opened up for the season and this interaction irked me and put me off Julie – I just felt a little off about her and it too me a moment to warm to her, and I just felt a little off about her. Then when Marge arrived with books they discover a body behind the cabin! What a welcome ‘home’ for Rain!

The victim Thornton Hughes was renting a home on the lake and as it turns out he was trying to buy up properties so he could develop a condo complex – obviously this wasn’t sitting well with the residents of Lofty Pines and someone off him before his plan could come into fruition. Rain and Julia do a little sleuthing and Rain discovers along the way thing about her parents marriage that she never saw coming.

I really enjoyed this first book in the Lakeside Library Mystery Series, and look forward to reading more.

4 stars
