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.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

What a fabulously fun start to a new cozy series. We meet Rain as she travels to her family's summer cabin at the lake to put her life back together after some horrible events. The last thing she thought of was the family library needing to be run as part of the property. As if that doesn't pose enough of a challenge shortly after arrival she helps to find a dead man. Rain had no clue who he was but the small town gossip has him at her mothers secret. She cannot help but to ask questions in an effort to clear her mom. Makes for a fun delightful read full of clues mixed with characters you can really picture while getting to know them. I really look forward to more in this series. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
