Calling on her aunt Ellen, Lucy hopes that a little fun in the Outer Banks sun - and some confections from her cousin Josie's bakery - will help clear her head. But her retreat quickly turns into an unexpected opportunity when Aunt Ellen gets her involved in the lighthouse library tucked away on Bodie Island.
Lucy is thrilled to land a librarian job in her favorite place in the world. But when a priceless first edition Jane Austen novel is stolen and the chair of the library board is murdered, Lucy suddenly finds herself ensnared in a real-life mystery - and she's not so sure there's going to be a happy ending....

A fun cozy with unfortunately bad narration
A light and fun cozy mystery set in the Outer Banks of NC. I enjoyed meeting the characters in and out of the lighthouse library. I was happy to have stayed with the audiobook to the end, even though the narration was not a good fit for the characters or the location. At times the narrator was dull and seemed uninterested in the story which was the good news. When she attempted regional accents they were inconsistant at best. The many completely mispronounced place names in the Outer Banks were cringe-worthy. If a story is set in such a widely known place as the Outer Banks with the main character from Boston, please get the accents and pronunciations correct or don't even try them.
I am glad that I stayed with the story as it was a sweet mystery, with a little Jane Austen thrown in on the side! The next book in The Lighthouse Library Mystery Series might have to wait until I have time to read it rather than listen to it.
