Past Due for Murder: A Blue Ridge Library Mystery by Victoria Gilbert

 


Past Due for Murder:
A Blue Ridge Library Mystery
by Victoria Gilbert

I especially enjoy the time spent at the Taylorsford library and their amazing archive room. The romantics will especially love the ending in Past Due for Murder.
~The Avid Reader

With great characters and plenty of twists and turns, this story takes us on quite a ride. The blend of folklore with a smidgen of fairies and magic was a delight.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Author Victoria Gilbert keeps readers engrossed and turning those pages in the BLUE RIDGE LIBRARY MYSTERIES.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies

I loved the Appalachian setting (it’s in my blood), the folklore, and the library too. Aunt Lydia continues to be a fave as well and – even though I don’t like cats – the one in this book is too adorable not to love.
~Reading Is My SuperPower

This is a fun cozy series. I have enjoyed every moment and look forward to more!
~My Reading Journeys

PAST DUE FOR MURDER explores self-doubt and trust while asking how much we really know about those we love, or loved. The end of the novel is uplifting and makes me look forward to the next installment.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

The first word that comes to mind is EXCITING. There is a lot going on between these covers.
~Laura’s Interests

While definitely a solid selection for fans of bookish cozies, the more mature and thought-provoking mystery elements, plot points, and themes add dimension and appeal that makes this series a cut above the standard cozy and highly recommended!
~That’s What She’s Reading

I personally feel the real strength to this series lies in the characters and their interactions with each other. I really liked Amy far better and felt like her character had really grown in this one . . .
~Curling Up By The Fire

Ms. Gilbert does a great job of balancing the mystery (or rather, mysteries, one present and one historical) with the ongoing and developing relationships between the characters and townspeople.
~The Bookwyrm’s Hoard

This is a snuggle down and keep turning the pages book, we have local folklore and murder intertwined and only Amy’s training will find the truth.
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog

I am so in love with this series!! Set in a small mountain town full of great people you can love and an adorable library . . . An absolute must-read for fans of copies with a library theme
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

There is a character who is a folklore professor and story elements involving fairy folk in the mountains. I absolutely loved these details and felt they added so much to the book.
~View from the Birdhouse

The mystery in this one was great as there were several suspects and the conclusion was well devised and took me totally by surprise.

Has a curse fallen on the small town of Taylorsford, Virginia? After a young woman goes missing during a spring bonfire, library director Amy Webber must wade through the web of lies only to find a truth that she may not want to untangle.

Spring has sprung in quaint Taylorsford, Virginia, and the mayor has revived the town’s long-defunct May Day celebration to boost tourism. As part of the festivities, library director Amy Webber is helping to organize a research project and presentation by a local folklore expert. All seems well at first—but spring takes on a sudden chill when a university student inexplicably vanishes during a bonfire.

The local police cast a wide net to find the missing woman, but in a shocking turn of events, Amy’s swoon-worthy neighbor Richard Muir becomes a person of interest in the case. Not only is Richard the woman’s dance instructor, he also doesn’t have an alibi for the night the student vanished—or at least not one he’ll divulge, even to Amy.

When the missing student is finally discovered lost in the mountains, with no memory of recent events—and a dead body lying nearby—an already disturbing mystery takes on a sinister new hue. Blessed with her innate curiosity and a librarian’s gift for research, Amy may be the only one who can learn the truth in Past Due for Murder, Victoria Gilbert’s third charming Blue Ridge Library mystery.
