Deadly Ever After: A Lighthouse Library Mystery

We rated this book:


Lucy has never been happier. She’s engaged to Connor and everyone they love is throwing them a party in celebration of their upcoming marriage. However, the party is interrupted when her ex-boyfriend and his mother barge in, with his mother pulling out all the stops to get them back together. Matters take a turn for the worse when her ex-boyfriend is accused of murdering his father, and Lucy finds herself pulled into the middle of the investigation to clear his name by catching the real killer.

The book has a happy opening that establishes the lighthearted tone of the story. This creates a delightful mix of romance, family drama, and sleuthing fun. Eva Gates incorporates literary references that will make every book lover happy while taking inspiration from The Hound of the Baskervilles, which comes into play in one epic scene involving some fog and a small dog. The return of Lucy’s ex creates drama and humor in the story while also providing an opportunity for her to confront her past and put it behind her.

Deadly Ever After is another delightful win for the series with a mystery that’s charming and full of endearing characters, humor, and romance.
