This is the fourth in Gilbert’s Blue Ridge Library Mystery Series. The protagonist of this novel as well as the others is Amy Webber, the director of the Taylorsford Public Library. Her friend “Sunny” Fields is running for mayor, but a body is found on her grandparents organic farm where they were part of a 1960s commune. Amy Webber puts her planned wedding aside to see if she can solve the murder in a way that leaves her friend free of suspicion. “The plot builds to a complex but satisfying conclusion. Cozy fans will hope Amy will return soon.”—Publishers Weekly. "Series fans will enjoy the ongoing shenanigans...Newbies with an appreciation for small town politics (and an interlibrary loan mulligan) will have no trouble starting here."—Booklist. “Another deftly crafted mystery buff's delight by a true master of the genre.—Midwest Book Review. “The murder mystery is both well plotted and clever enough to keep the most seasoned of mystery readers guessing.”—My Shelf. The author, Victoria Gilbert grew up near the Virginia Blue Ridge where her novels are set and now lives in North Carolina.
