Past Due for Murder: A Blue Ridge Library Mystery by Victoria Gilbert

They are going to have a May Day celebration in town to bring in the tourists.  Amy is coordinating a folk tale event to share with the participants.  When a college student disappears and the folk tale teller ends up dead, it turns into a murder investigation.

Crooked Lane Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published February 22nd.

The college student is in a coma and they aren't sure if there is brain damage or if she will remember anything. When Amy picks up on college gossip and finds out they are saying her boyfriend might have been having an affair with the student, she decides to get involved in the investigation.  She doesn't believe that but she wants to check it out.

Her old boyfriend is trying to be friendly again but she won't let him in.  Mona, the dead woman, said she had information on two men she's trying to get more folklore information from and she intends to blackmail it out of them if she can't get it any other way.  Now she's dead.  Was she the victim of a hunting accident or did one of them kill her?

There's more than one death before the end of the story and it gets very dangerous for Amy before it's over.  It kept me reading.
