Amy Webber, a library director in Taylorsford, Virginia, and her fiancé find the body of the bitter rival of the host of their pre-nuptial celebration. That kicks off the excitement in this the fifth and last book in the Blue Ridge Library Mystery Series. “Endearing characters are further fleshed out in the library director's fifth mystery.”—Kirkus Reviews. “Lively small-town characters, a well-paced plot, and dollops of fascinating art history help make this a winner.”—Publishers Weekly. “The well plotted and character driven story moves quickly and has something for everyone...Highly recommended.”—Fresh Fiction. “A mystery that has suspense, surprises, and humor which makes for an addicting and delightful cozy read from beginning to end.”—Manhattan Book Review. The author, Victoria Gilbert, is a professional librarian who grew up in the kind of small town she writes about. She lives in North Carolina.
