Murder at the Lakeside Library is a blithe cozy mystery with a lakeside library, a curious corpse, a firm friend, uncertain rumors, and a boatload of books.
~The Avid Reader

I loved the cozy setting and the whole idea of “Lakers” (not the basketball team) and running a summer library. It gave me that On Golden Pond feeling but with a delicious cozy mystery wrapped up in it!
~Books To The Ceiling

What a fabulously fun start to a new cozy series. . . a fun delightful read full of clues mixed with characters you can really picture while getting to know them. 5/5 stars.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

Murder at the Lakeside Library was a great mystery and I loved the idea that the main character lived in a cabin . . . This is a very enjoyable story with quirky characters and the mystery was very well-written.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

I really liked how important literacy was to Rain’s family going back to her great grandfather, himself an author. The library is a wonderful family legacy. That gives this series a grand uniqueness that cozy readers will love.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

I really enjoyed Holly Danvers’ writing style and storytelling. The mystery was well developed, and the characters were varied and interesting. I can’t wait to return to this little corner of Wisconsin for future books in the series. Well done!
~Jen for Novels Alive

Murder at the Lakeside Library by Holly Danvers is a wonderful mystery with great characters and a lovely setting . . . is a fabulous start to a new mystery.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

I loved the plot of the story and the setting of northern Wisconsin . . .
~Brooke Blogs

Murder at the Lakeside Library is a cute start to a new cozy series! I loved the Wisconsin Northwoods setting, as it brought back delightful family vacation memories from my childhood, and the author did a great job of making it come alive for readers.
~Reading Is My SuperPower

I enjoyed the setting of this one, a Wisconsin Lake in the summer time. While this was a mystery, it was a little different than a lot of mysteries as the author did not allude to who the killer was and why until the end of the book. I will definitely be looking forward to more in this series.

I really enjoyed this first book in the Lakeside Library Mystery Series, and look forward to reading more.

In this series debut perfect for fans of Jenn McKinlay and Miranda James, Rain Wilmot must discover the killer, before the book closes on her life.


Rain Wilmot has just returned to her family’s waterfront log cabin in Lofty Pines, Wisconsin after the untimely death of her husband. The cabin is peaceful compared to Rain’s corporate job and comes with an informal library that Rain’s mother, Willow, used to run. But as Rain prepares for the re-opening of the library, all hopes for a peaceful life are shattered when she discovers the body of Thornton Hughes, a real estate buyer, on the premises.


The community of Lofty Pines starts pointing fingers at Willow, since she has been unusually absent from the library this summer. A fishy rumor surfaces when Rain learns that Willow had been spending a lot of time with Thornton. The town even thought they were having an affair.


While theories swirl about Thornton’s death, Rain takes it upon herself to solve the case to exonerate her mother. As more clues surface, Rain will have to piece together the mystery. But if she isn’t careful, she may be the next to end up dead in the water in Murder at the Lakeside Library, the first in Holly Danvers’ new Lakeside Library mysteries.
