I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

I just started reading this. The excerpts are from the E-ARC.


"More coffee?" I asked Dylan as I got up from the table to pour us both a refill.

"I'd love some, babe, but I'd better leave now if I'm going to squeeze in a few important phone calls before my ten-thirty appointment."  He stood and planted a kiss on my lips.  "Traffic's bumper-to- bumper this time of the day."

From 56% on my Kindle...

"Your personal life is so demanding, it's amazing you have any time for work."

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Carrie Singleton and Evelyn the ghost sleuth the slayings of a starlet and a star-crossed psychic in Agatha Award nominee Allison Brook's fourth Haunted Library mystery.

Daphne Marriott strolls into Clover Ridge and informs librarian Carrie Singleton that she's a psychic. But had she foreseen what fate awaited her, Daphne would have steered clear of the quaint Connecticut town. Evelyn, the library ghost, tells Carrie that there's more to Daphne than she lets on.

The mysterious woman grew up in Clover Ridge with her no-good dad, who apparently met his end at the hands of Daphne's brother, Billy. Still, Daphne proves a welcome distraction when Carrie's overbearing mother hits town. Mom's much younger husband, Tom, is in a movie that's lensing locally, and she's there to keep an eye on him: Tom's costar, sultry Ilana Reingold, is also his ex-fiancée, and there's no denying the chemistry is still there. Soon after mingling with the moviemakers at a meet-and-greet, Daphne is found dead.

Carrie and Evelyn investigate, assisted by bushy-tailed library cat Smoky Joe. But the suspect list could overflow the library shelves. Has Billy killed another relative? Is their long-missing mother involved? Or Daphne's mean ex-husband? Carrie's sure she knows who committed the crime, but can she bind together the clues before the culprit Dewey-decimates the town?

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. I read and reviewed this one recently. :-) I hope you are enjoying it, Yvonne! I really enjoy spending time in Clover Ridge. Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  2. Isn't it odd reading a book about things like bumper-to-bumper traffic when our world is so upside down right now. I usually think that when I see a commercial where people are shaking hands or hugging. Ha! Stay safe. My Friday quotes from OTHER NAMES FOR HOME

  3. I'm curious for more! Happy Labor day weekend!

  4. I love the idea of a library mystery set in Connecticut!
