Long Overdue at the Lakeside Library (A Lakeside Library Mystery Book 2)

We rated this book:


Rain Wilmot has decided to keep the library attached to her log cottage in Wisconsin open for the winter season. The snowstorm on the horizon is keeping the library humming with locals. There’s also the local fishing jamboree, a yearly event that everyone is eager to attend despite the bitter cold. But before the gathering can get underway, the body of Wallace Benson is found in his ice-fishing hut. Rain’s friend Nick is accused of the murder, which leaves his wife Julia and Rain to try and clear his name before the oncoming blizzard snows them in. But will the killer strike again before Rain and Julia find any evidence to clear Nick’s name?

I have to admit that it took me a few chapters to get into this novel. But by the end, I came to appreciate the friendship between Rain and Julia as well as the warm and cozy feeling the author was able to convey through setting and atmosphere. In addition, I liked the overall plot and the unexpected ending. Overall, Long Overdue at the Lakeside Library turned out to be a fast-paced, enjoyable read.
