Get bound up in murder in the first Lighthouse Library mystery! For ten years Lucy has enjoyed her job poring over rare tomes of literature for the Harvard Library, but she has not enjoyed the demands of her family's social whorl or her sort-of-engagement to the staid son of her father's law partner. But when her ten-year relationship implodes, Lucy realizes that the plot of her life is in need of a serious rewrite. Calling on her aunt Ellen, Lucy hopes that a little fun in the Outer Banks sun--and some confections from her cousin Josie's bakery--will help clear her head. But her retreat quickly turns into an unexpected opportunity when Aunt Ellen gets her involved in the lighthouse library tucked away on Bodie Island. Lucy is thrilled to land a librarian job in her favorite place in the world. But when a priceless first edition Jane Austen novel is stolen and the chair of the library board is murdered, Lucy suddenly finds herself ensnared in a real-life mystery--and she's not so sure there's going to be a happy ending....

Halloween in North Carolina's Outer Banks becomes seriously tricky when librarian Lucy Richardson stumbles across something extra unusual in the rare books section: a dead body.

Unfortunately, while the library is hosting a lecture on ghostly legends, Jay becomes one of the dearly departed in the rare books section. Now, it's up to Lucy Richardson and her fellow librarians to bone up on their detective skills and discover who is responsible for this wicked Halloween homicide.

But this December, while the snow-lined streets seem merry and bright, a murder is about to ruin everyone’s holiday cheer… As the owner of Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, Merry Wilkinson knows how to decorate homes for the holidays.

But when the tractor pulling Merry’s float is sabotaged, she has to face facts: there’s a Scrooge in Christmas Town. Merry isn’t ready to point fingers, especially with a journalist in town writing a puff piece about Rudolph’s Christmas spirit. But when she stumbles upon the reporter’s body on a late night dog walk—and police suspect he was poisoned by a gingerbread cookie crafted by her best friend, Vicky—Merry will have to put down the jingle bells and figure out who’s really been grinching about town, before Vicky ends up on Santa’s naughty list…

A former nun turned private investigator stars in “a fun and fast read with a lot of appeal” (Library Journal). The owner of Stone’s Throw Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast insists that a tarot reading told her to hire Driscoll Investigations to evict the family ghost. Since the ghost is cutting gas lines and flooding cellars, ex-nun Giulia and her husband Frank head to the B&B to discover the real perpetrator. The client also has a family legend to share: a highwayman who stole a pile of gold. Giulia, on the other hand, has a pile of suspects—including a psychic the client hired to conduct weekly séances. It looks like there’s not going to be much time for romance during this getaway. Instead, Giulia’s juggling arson, creepy clown dolls, and the psychic going all Exorcist on her. Then the ghost tries to push the client off the lighthouse and throw Giulia down three flights of stairs. It should’ve known better than to mess with an ex-nun. Giulia has connections, and she’s about to use them . . . “In Second to Nun, former nun and current private eye Giulia Driscoll tackles ghosts with the same wit and wisdom she uses to tackle crooks. Great fun.” —Terrie Farley Moran, Agatha Award–winning author of the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries “Giulia is a sympathetic, well-drawn character who has built a full life for herself after she leaving the convent, but appealing touches of the former nun remain.” —Booklist “Loweecey’s characters are colorful without being caricatures.” —Sheila Connolly, New York Times–bestselling author of An Early Wake
