Librarian Carrie Singleton is building a haven, but one of her neighbors is misbehavin'. Can resident spirit Evelyn help Carrie catch the culprit who made her a ghost? In winter, the Haunted Library is a refuge for homeless townspeople. When a group purchases a vacant house to establish a daytime haven for the homeless, Carrie offers the library as a meeting place for the Haven House committee, but quickly learns that it may be used for illegal activities. As the new Sunshine Delegate, Carrie heads to the hospital to visit her cantankerous colleague, Dorothy, who had fallen outside the local supermarket. She tells Carrie that her husband tried to kill her--and that he murdered her Aunt Evelyn, the library's resident ghost, six years earlier. And then Dorothy is murdered--run off the road as soon as she returns to work. Evelyn implores Carrie to find her niece's killer, but that's no easy task: Dorothy had made a hobby of blackmailing her neighbors and colleagues. Carrie, Evelyn, and Smoky Joe the cat are on the case, but are the library cards stacked against them?… (mais)

Buried in the Stacks by Allison Brooke
This is the third book in The Haunted Library Mysteries series.

Carrie Singleton is a Librarian at Clover Ridge and is good at her job. Apart from her very young cousin, Carrie can see and speak with the library resident ghost, Evelyn.
There is a problem with the homeless entering and staying in the library for extended stays, which some of the locals don’t care for. But it is winter and very cold.
When a local lost her purse, the finger were pointed to the homeless couple who at one time were respected citizens of Clover Ridge. With the help of Carrie, the homeless situation was eventually taken care of.
Dorothy, Carrie’s co worker was in hospital after she slipped on black ice. Not all ends well with Dorothy.
I have a few favorite cozy mysteries and this series is on my top three.
The characters are all life like. The situation regarding the homeless is sadly true and I was happy to see the author had this in her book.
This is a captivating book that had my attention from start to end and I am looking forward to reading the fourth book not to mention excited to see what crime Carrie solves. ( )

I enjoy the Haunted Library cozy series. The idea of a librarian that not only supplies the local library cat, but also gets visited at work by the resident ghost is cute and entertaining. Why shouldn't a library be haunted by a prior librarian? That's real dedication to a career! Evelyn Havers loved the library, so why shouldn't she stick around? The ghost is woven into the plot so well in each book that the paranormal portion of the plot isn't cheesy or over-the-top....just fun. I like the quirky Clover Ridge side characters and the fact that it took awhile for locals to accept the "new girl.'' So true.....small towns can be so clique-ish. "You're not from around here'' really is a thing. I would imagine it's even more so when dead bodies start stacking up. The minute Carrie Singleton showed up in Clover Ridge....cue the murders. I can see why the local police started giving her some serious side eye from the start!

Buried in the Stacks is the 3rd mystery in the series. A local group bought a house to help local homeless people have shelter in the winter. During the day, the homeless have taken to hanging out at the library. There have been some altercations in the reading room and the locals seem nervous around the homeless. It's becoming a bit of a volatile situation. Carrie is being kept busy by her new position as Sunshine Delegate -- the library employee who visits sick and hospitalized library employees. When her least favorite co-worker is injured in a fall, she gets sucked into delivering her books at home and listening to her pain-killer induced rant about being afraid of her husband, who pushed her down causing her injury. Later when the woman is killed in a car accident, it's pretty evident she was run off the road. Carrie learns her coworker was not just a hard person to work with, but she had some pretty bad behavior in her personal life as well. Behavior that might explain why she was killed. The case might also solve the question of who killed resident library ghost Evelyn as well.... Despite not liking the deceased much, Carrie is on the case.....again.

This is another well-written, entertaining story in this series. I like the character development in each book. Carrie has come a long way! And so have the residents of Clover Ridge. I was a bit surprised at the murder victim in this newest story.....but I can't say I will miss the character. There is a bit of a cliff hanger at the end of this book.....Carrie's life is about to get a bit...complicated for awhile. :) Makes me sad I have to wait awhile to read the next book in this series!

I think the side plot of a small town dealing with homelessness was interesting and so true. It isn't a large city problem anymore....it happens everywhere.

Allison Brook is a pseudonym for author Marilyn Levinson. Levinson has written several mystery novels....I will fill in the time til the next Haunted Library mystery by reading more of her books! :)

First, let me say that I haven't read the other books in this series and I had no problem following the story. Would like to read the other books though just to flesh it all out. It was a very entertaining read. I used to work in a library so naturally I loved the setting. We didn't have a ghost that I know of though! LOL! The characters are wonderful, even the ones you don't like. The homeless using the library during the winter is definitely on point and it really highlights the problems they face due to stereotypes and prejudices. All in all, a really good cozy!
I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher and voluntarily chose to review it. ( )

Buried In The Stacks is the third book in the A Haunted Library Mystery series.

Winter is upon the residents of Clover Ridge and walking is quite treacherous. Research librarian, Dorothy, has gone grocery shopping and as she is loading her purchases into she falls and injures herself and is hospitalized. Carrie, having been recently appointed Sunshine Chairman for the library she has to put aside her feelings for her nemesis and visits with Dorothy at the hospital. While talking Dorothy shares with Carrie that she is sure her husband, Fred pushed her. Soon he is released from the hospital and returns to work. Shortly after returning to work, she leaves the library and as she is driving home she is forced off the road and dies in the wreckage. Even though she says that she isn’t going to investigate, she can’t help to give it some thought. One thing she needs to think about is Evelyn, Dorothy and the library’s resident ghost that only Carrie and her niece can see. She slipped like Dorothy and ended up freezing to death. She begins to wonder if they are somehow related.

Meanwhile, at the library, with the cold weather, the homeless don’t have any place to go and have been using the library as a place to stay warm during the day and have been making excess noise in the normally quiet library. Carrie soon learns that a group of residents is raising monies to purchase a home and make it into a place for homeless to stay during the day. But soon there seems to problems raising the money needed and questions about the real reason the home is being refurbished. Now Carrie has several suspects to think about. On the positive side, it appears that Carrie’s boyfriend, Dylan, will be moving back in the area.

Once again Alison Brook has provided the reader with a well-plotted and told story with well-developed and believable characters.

Buried in the Stacks is the third book in A Haunted Library Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. Carrie Singleton finds herself becoming the library’s new Sunshine Delegate and involved in a group trying to establish a daytime sanctuary for the homeless population in Clover Ridge. When Dorothy Hawkins, the tetchy reference librarian, ends up dead, the library’s resident ghost & Dorothy’s aunt, Evelyn asks Carrie to find the guilty party. I found Buried in the Stacks to be easy to read. Carrie has certainly changed from when she first appeared on the scene with her colorful hair and a wardrobe more suited to rock concert than a library. She has settled into her cottage, has Smoky Joe (her cat), dating Dylan, and getting involved in community events. With the homeless population needing a daytime facility (where they can read books, play games, crochet, etc.), a group of local citizens bought a home they are going to turn into Haven House. Carrie joins the members, but she soon learns that some citizens have ulterior motives. I like how the author deals with the topic of homeless. She shows that they are not anonymous people that should be ignored. They have fallen on hard times and just need a little extra help. As with any group of people, there are various types of personalities. Dorothy Hawkins ends up dead and her aunt, Evelyn (the library’s resident ghost) is upset. I am shocked that some individuals were not doing a little jig and singing “Ding dong the witch is dead” when the news was announced. Dorothy was an unlikeable woman who collected secrets and used them to her advantage which leads to a long list of suspects. It is amazing that Dorothy lived as long as she did. While identifying the guilty party is a walk in the park, I did like that a cold case gets solved in the process. Carrie did not seem as involved in solving Dorothy’s death as she did in what was happening with Haven House. She took some unnecessary risks that did not yield good results. I would have liked the story to have more focus on Dorothy’s murder with less repetition of case details. I do not know why people keep warning Carrie to not investigate, as with any cozy mystery sleuth, she cannot help herself. I am curious how the title related to the book since no one was buried or trapped beneath a pile of books. Buried in the Stacks is a haunting cozy mystery a chubby cat, a sweet spirit, deceptive do-gooders, an irascible reference librarian and pugnacious patrons. ( )
