By all accounts, Helena Sanchez was a nasty rude woman. She insulted most of the attendees at Bertie’s fortieth college reunion. However, even she didn’t deserve to be murdered for her sins. For the murderer, it was A Death Long Overdue as Helena was the former Library Director at the Outer Banks Lighthouse Library. With so many suspects, Assistant Library Director and amateur detective Lucy has a challenging mystery to solve.
It always feels like coming home for Thanksgiving when I read the Lighthouse Library mysteries. There is not just a mystery to solve. Each time I learn what happened to the characters in the months I’ve been away. I liked that catching up and the movement in the characters’ lives the best in A Death Long Overdue. The mystery itself was much easier to solve this time around. Still, it was fun to see my old friends from the Outer Banks. 4 stars!
