Staff Review: By Book or By Crook

"By Book or By Crook" by Eva Gates

Cover: 'By Book or By Crook'

I stumbled upon this brand new cozy mystery series by happy accident, and am thankful I did! Set along the beautiful Outer Banks, Lucy has just escaped from her chaotic Boston life to start a job in the quaint local lighthouse library. Set to host first editions of Jane Austen's work, the library hosts a party commemorating the temporary additions. But when the chair of the library board is murdered among the masterpieces, and the novels start to slowly disappear from the locked display cabinet, the seaside town scrambles to protect to the library and find the killer. Set in a beautiful location with loveable characters (including one fluffy feline), this is a wonderful start to a new series!
