About the book
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 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?
Sometimes covers beckon you to take a chance and turn the pages. Checked Out For Murder was one that captured my attention. The cover with Smokey Joe the resident library cat beckoned this reader to turn the pages.
This was a good read filled with a bit of drama and murder. I enjoy Carrie and the resident ghost Evelyn.
When 1 murder leads to another Carrie has her hands full trying to get the answers while juggling her romantic life and her moms and her relationship with said mom that is well
I love the small town setting and I really enjoy the library setting. This is a great series. Each book is written as a standalone.
I received a complimentary copy.
