Halloween in North Carolina's Outer Banks becomes seriously tricky when librarian Lucy Richardson stumbles across something extra unusual in the rare books section: a dead body. Wealthy businessman Jay Ruddle is considering donating his extensive collection of North Carolina historical documents to the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library, but the competition for the collection is fierce. Unfortunately, while the library is hosting a lecture on ghostly legends, Jay becomes one of the dearly departed in the rare books section. Now, it's up to Lucy Richardson and her fellow librarians to bone up on their detective skills and discover who is responsible for this wicked Halloween homicide. Meanwhile, very strange things are happening at the library--haunted horses are materializing in the marsh, the lights seem to have an eerie life of their own, and the tiny crew of a model ship appears to move around when no one is watching. Is Lucy at her wit's end? Or can it be that the Bodie Island Lighthouse really is haunted? With The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on everyone's minds and ghoulish gossip on everyone's lips, Lucy will need to separate the clues from the boos if she wants to crack this case without losing her head in The Spook in the Stacks, the delightful fourth in national bestseller Eva Gates' Lighthouse Library mysteries.… (mais)

There are multiple cozy mysteries with the librarian as amateur sleuth but this series continues as my all-time favorite as I am simply enthralled by the library setting. The library is in the Bodie Island Lighthouse on the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Using this picturesque setting the author has created an extraordinary library within the interior that also provides accommodation of a "studio" apartment for the assistant librarian Lucy Richardson complete with a reading nook with bench seat and ocean view at the window. Add to this idyllic setting a handsome Himalayan cat named "Charles" (in honor of Mr. Charles Dickens) to supervise library activities and provide purrs and company during apartment time.

In Book 4, it's the week of Halloween and Ronald Burkowski, the children’s librarian, Charlene Clayton, research librarian, and Louise Jane McKaughnan, library volunteer have the library in full celebration mode with various activities planned for all ages. In the midst of the festivities, library director Bertie James is busy hosting Jay Ruddle, his granddaughter Julia, and assistant, Greg Summers. Their discussions will determine if the library will become the new owners of Mr. Ruddle's extensive collection of Outer Banks historical documents. Discussions take a very unexpected turn and once again Lucy's sleuthing skills are needed with the spookiness of the holiday providing a ghostly atmosphere.

This cozy will appeal to multiple interests from those who enjoy nautical history to those that simply must devour all things Halloween from ghostly tales to the classic holiday stories and may even provide a few new ideas for Halloween celebrations for librarians planning their upcoming public library events.

The Spook in the Stacks (Lighthouse Library Mystery) by Eva Gates

Lucy Richardson is a librarian at the Bodie House Lighthouse Library in Nags Head NC.
Its the week of Halloween and the gang from the library are all busy planning activities for both young and old. Jay Riddle, a wealthy native from Nags Head visits as the festivities begin. Lucy enters the library to find the body slummed in the chair and not long after Lucy is solving the murder. Not to mention the hauntings that are happening to her.

I found this to be an enjoyable read and would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about libraries and mysteries and maybe a Halloween ghost. ( )

It's Halloween and the library in Bodie Lighthouse is decorated for the season. The Lighthouse Library is also in the running to receive a donation of a historical documents collection from a rich businessman, Jay Ruddle. Unfortunately, during a lecture at the library on local ghostly legends, Ruddle is found dead in the library's rare book room. Spooky things start happening in the library after Ruddle's death.....lights flickering, ghostly horses appearing and inanimate skeletal sailors on a model ship seem to move by themselves. Who killed Ruddle and is the Lighthouse Library haunted?

I love this series! The location is awesome. I live in NC and have been to Nag's Head and Bodie Lighthouse. ;) The characters are likable and quirky. And the mystery is always entertaining and interesting. Halloween is my favorite holiday so I very much enjoyed this spooky visit to the OBX and its lighthouse library. The mystery had plenty of suspects and spooky twists. The pacing was great. The story definitely kept my attention from beginning to end. Great new addition to this series! There are four books so far in the Lighthouse Library mystery series.

My only issue with this series is the fact that Bodie Lighthouse is a real location at Nag's Head. And the lighthouse is too small to house a library or an apartment of any kind. I have no problem with authors taking poetic license a little bit with actual places....but when it comes to Bodie Lighthouse, it's a biggg step away from reality. I would have preferred that she used a fictitious name instead of using an actual existing historical lighthouse if fact and fiction were going to be so far apart. The actual Bodie Lighthouse has just enough room for the metal spiral staircase to the top.....no place for a library or someone to live. No second floor. No nothing. Stairs to the top....and a sturdy metal platform at the top where you can look out on the ocean and the surrounding countryside. There is a visitor's center nearby that is big enough to house a library (it's a gift shop and information center in reality) and an apartment. But, I can see how the idea of a library actually inside a lighthouse with the main character living there too was much cooler than locating the books inside a regular building near a lighthouse. :) But still.....knowing the real place and reading about the fictional place always pulls me out of the story. I still love this series....and this one issue does not effect my reading enjoyment all that much. Just me being a North Carolinian. :) [As an aside: Nag's Head is awesome. The surf can get a bit rough there, but I highly recommend it as a tourist destination. It has the right mix of quiet beach, touristy fun and local flair. Plus, great seafood and the beautiful pier! I love it there! Just don't expect Bodie (pronouced like beau-dee not like body) Lighthouse to have a library in it. You can buy a nice t-shirt that proclaims you climbed to the top though! Can you tell I love my state? :)]

It’s Hallowe’en and the stage is set for this spooky tale: a foggy mist, strange lights, a ghostly horse, and other strange happenings. Lucy’s lighthouse library is short-listed to receive some valuable historical documents, until the unthinkable happens, and a murderer disrupts everything. Lucy is in the thick of things, befriending the bereaved even while she searches to find the killer. Lots of twists and some red herrings along the way will keep readers turning those pages, but the real interest lies in the characters and their interaction. ( )

This is the fourth mystery in the Lighthouse Library Mystery series. Lucy Richardson is one of the librarians at a library located in a lighthouse on the shores of North Carolina. Such a cool location for a library, and for the setting of the mystery. I love the look at library life and the running of the library. Lucy is lucky enough to live on the top floor of the lighthouse just above the library.

It is Halloween week, and the library has some spooky events planned. At the same time, Jay Ruddle is visiting the library with his granddaughter and his assistant, trying to find a new home for his collection of historical documents. When his body is found in the rare books section, suspicion immediately falls on his granddaughter, Julia, who stands to inherit everything. Lucy feels that Julia is innocent and reluctantly begins to investigate the death.

The mystery portion of the book is solid, with many suspects. But for me, the star of the book is the characters. Everyone seemed believable (with the exception of Julia's mom and stepdad), and I was left feeling that this is a community I could be a part of and feel at home. I enjoyed the progression of Lucy's romance with Connor, and the subplot of his running for Mayor of the town. This book is a pleasure to read and left me feeling happy and satisfied.

I received an ARC of the book from the publisher and the Cozy Mystery Review Crew in exchange for my honest opinion. ( )
