Librarian Amy Webber must archive overdue crimes and
deadly rumors before a killer strikes again in her new
Virginia home in Victoria Gilbertâ€™s charming series debut.
Fleeing a disastrous love affair, university librarian Amy
Webber moves in with her aunt in a quiet, historic
mountain town in Virginia. She quickly busies herself with
managing a charming public library that requires all her
attention with its severe lack of funds and overabundance
of eccentric patrons. The last thing she needs is a new,
available neighbor whose charm lures her into trouble.
Richard Muir inherited the farmhouse next door from his
great-uncle, Paul Dassin. But town folklore claims the
houseâ€™s original owner was poisoned by his wife, who was
an outsider. It quickly became water under the bridge,
until she vanished after her sensational 1925 murder
trial. Determined to clear the name of the woman his
great-uncle loved, Richard implores Amy to help him
investigate the case. Amy is skeptical until their
research raises questions about the culpability of the
townâ€™s leading families... including her own.
When inexplicable murders plunge the quiet town into
chaos, Amy and Richard must crack open the books to reveal
a cruel conspiracy and lay a turbulent past to rest in A
Murder for the Books, the first installment of Victoria
Gilbertâ€™s Blue Ridge Library mysteries.
