Death Overdue: A Haunted Library Mystery by Allison Brook

Carrie is living with her aunt and uncle and working at the local library.  She loves her family but her job is boring and she's thinking of moving on.  Then she's offered a permanent position in the library.  She's not sure but she agrees to try it for her aunt and uncle.  She doesn't know there is a resident ghost there that will be making her acquaintance...

Crooked Lane Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 10th.

One of the first programs she puts on is a presentation by a former cop about a cold case of murder.  He says he knows who did it and will reveal it that night.  Someone doesn't like that idea and poisons him during the meeting.  Carrie is upset it happened in the middle of her event and that he's dead.  She really liked him.  The worst part is that the police have no idea who the killer is. It might have been the person that killed Laura, the unsolved case that Al was working on.

She decides to work with Laura's youngest son to try to solve the case.  He's good looking and charming enough but he's a bit immature.  They work together and the more she searches through relationships and possible killers, the more confusing it gets.  It doesn't help when she's being bullied at the library and getting threats from the killer.

This was a very good read.  I enjoyed the ghostly help, like Carrie's new boyfriend, and am glad she's decided to stay in town.  I'll be looking forward to reading her next adventure.
