- Mystery, Cozy Mysteries, Other
A killer in the stacks
Winter falls on the Outer Banks as Lucy and friends joyfully help her favorite cousin, Josie O'Malley, plan her wedding. The owner of Josie's Cozy Bakery and her fiancé, chef Jake Greenblatt, want a small, simple wedding.
But to their horror, Josie's imperious grandmother, Gloria, descends with a gaggle of aunts and cousins who intend to take control of the wedding plans. Gloria doesn't do small and simple, and cousin Mirabelle has her own ideas for Josie's wedding, something grand and lavish. To smooth the waters, Lucy hosts a shower at the Lighthouse Library. But it turns deadly when Mirabelle collapses—soon after eating the gluten-free treats Josie prepared. Now, to save Josie from prison, Lucy will have to bring a crook to book.
