“#rd book in the Library Lover's Mystery. Second year library director of a small Connecticut shore line town, Lindsey Norris finds herself in the middle between town historian's protecting the Thumb Islands off the coast and the town tourism planner helping pirate hunters looking for the buried treasure of Billy The Kidd. When Trudi Hargrave's body is found at the excavation site, Lindsey is determined to not let the truth be buried with her. Large print edition is annoying, but was available at my library.”Sherry A wrote this review Friday, September 20, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Satisfying cozy mystery in the Library Lovers series. The characters are well-drawn and seem like old friends by now. Lindsey and friends get involved in the search for Captain Kidd's treasure in their sleepy little coastal Connecticut town and hijinks and mayhem ensue. Looking forward to the next book...”JONI214 wrote this review Thursday, July 25, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Excellent cozy! Lindsey Norris is now happily settled into Briar Creek. She loves her job, her friends, her dog, and especially her boyfriend Sully. Unfortunately, her ex-fiancee John has decided, however belatedly, to win her back. There is a political struggle over Trudi's effort to get a treasure company renting an island (or two) that seem to be on an old treasure map. The local history and ecological leaders are not especially thrilled with the mauling these natural resources would receive, and Milton leads most of these. The second island under investigation is where a family died in a suspicious fire 25 yrs ago. Is the missing father also looking for the treasure? The whole town (and tourists) are being swept up in the pirate treasure fever... and then the map is stolen, and a body is found in the excavations. ”Salar_Shushan wrote this review Sunday, July 21, 2013.

“Pirate fever is hitting the small Connecticut town of Briar Creek, and everyone is looking for some hidden treasure that might have been buried on one of the town's many tiny islands. Librarian Lindsey Norris is on her third adventure just as many of the town's leading citizens are fighting over whether to find the treasure or protect the island environment when Councilwoman Trudi Hargrave turns up dead on one of the islands at a dig. Fingers start pointing as to who might have done it, and one of the primary suspects is a library trustee and historical society member.
To make matters worse, an ex-boyfriend from her years working at Yale University as an archivist shows up in town with the hopes of recapturing their romance. John had left her for another woman, but he regrets that decision now. Lindsey has found a home in Briar Creek, and she has also found a new love in the form of Michael "Sully" Sullivan, one of the town's many boatmen.
As people seem to be getting closer to the treasure, the danger for everyone involved deepens. Can Lindsey dig down to the truth before she or anyone else is hurt or worse?
I have to admit that I started reading this series simply because Lindsey is a librarian, but I have found them to be cozy and fun reads. They are not particularly gory, but they are definitely fun. While she is younger than Jessica Fletcher, the books seem to capture the New England charm and feel of the "Murder She Wrote" television series. I am already looking forward to the fourth book, which is to be called "Read It and Weep."”
“How I love this series! How can I not since it's about a librarian in a small town and she stumbles on mysterious murders.
Treasure huntes arrive in Lindsey's small town and disrupt the peace and quiet. They come lookin' for pirate treasure (arrrr) and one of the hunters turns up dead.
There's also an old murder that needs solving and Lindsey's beau, a tour boat captain, feels compelled to find out who did what.
Love love love this series!”

“Another cute mystery with the librarians in the same cute CT town. Not as good as the others, but still very enjoyable and light. Some smile moments. Glad to see a chapter from the next book at the end- that means there will be a next book! ”Becky S wrote this review Wednesday, January 2, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?
