Book descriptionCarrie Singleton is just about done with Clover Ridge, Connecticut until she’s 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 surged forward with the program despite pushback from her director. Driven by guilt, Carrie’s 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.
Now it’s due or die for Carrie in Death Overdue the delightful first in a new cozy series by Allison Brook.

Oh how I love a good cozy mystery especially one that has a library and it haunted. This book has all the makings for the start of a good new series. You have two mysteries to solve in this book. The fifteen year old one of Laura Foster and the most recent one of Al. I think Al was done in as he had figured out what happened to Laura. Then Carrie starts looking into the murder and now she needs to watch her back. I liked the twists the author put in the story two keep you interested. The only negative that I would have to say about this book is that I would have liked more of the ghost. But that was not enough to keep me from enjoying this book and looking forward to the next book in the series. This is the perfect book to read this time of year.
