Buried in the Stacks
Many have heard of the library cat, but this library has something more - it has a library ghost. Thankfully, both the cat and the ghost are friendly and take an active part in the story. Allison Brook, along with the cat and ghost, has written a readable and enjoyable book.
No one really liked Dorothy Hawkins, the Research Librarian, but nobody really wanted her to die either. In an unexpected conversation Dorothy would initially accuse her husband, but would later say her accusation was the result of a drug induced delirium. It would fall upon Carrie Singleton, her cat (which she shared with the library) and the library’s ghost (a former library employee who died some time ago in the library parking lot) to find the murderer.
The story was interesting and attention holding. The detective work seemed more accidental than purposeful - but it got the job done. The murder was solved.
The book will be enjoyed by most who read cozy mysteries. The book will find a home in many public libraries and on the shelves of many casual readers.
