Librarian Lucy Richardson unearths a mysterious map dating back to the Civil War. But if she can't crack its code, she may end up read and buried.
The Bodie Island Lighthouse Library Classic Novel Book Club is reading Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne while workers dig into the earth to repair the Lighthouse Library's foundations. The digging halts when Lucy pulls a battered tin box containing a Civil War-era diary from the pit. Tucked inside is a hand-drawn map of the Outer Banks accompanied by a page written in an indecipherable code.
The library is overrun by people clamoring to see the artifact. Later that night, Lucy and Connor McNeil find the body of historical society member Jeremy Hughes inside the library. Clearly Jeremy was not the only one who broke into the library--the map and the coded page are missing.
Lucy's nemesis, Louise Jane McKaughnan, confesses to entering the library after closing to sneak a peek but denies seeing Jeremy--or his killer. When Lucy discovers that fellow-librarian Charlene had a past with Jeremy, she's forced to do what she vowed not to do--get involved in the case. Meanwhile, the entire library staff and community become obsessed with trying to decode the page. But when the library has a second break in, it becomes clear that someone is determined to solve that code.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I think this series gets more addicting each time we get a new book. The historic lighthouse attached to the library has developed a huge foundation crack that requires repairs. These are underway when the workers discover a long buried box with unknown contents. Once they open it everyone starts fighting for it because one sheet of paper looks like a map and the other a hidden code. Before either can be researched there is break in, a murder, and a theft. Looks like Lucy has another case to get involved in whether she likes it or not. Makes for a really fun read full of small time charm, great characters, and a mystery to keep you guessing. The cat adds just the right touch too. A must read for fans of library cozies. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
