Description
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. Dancer-turned-teacher and choreographer Richard Muir inherited the farmhouse next door from his great-uncle, Paul Dassin. But town folklore claims the house'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 town'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 Gilbert's Blue Ridge Library mysteries.

display_descriptionLibrarian Amy Webber leaves her university job to live with her aunt in a historic Virginia mountain town. She lands a new gig managing the charming public library, which has too little money and too many eccentric patrons. The last thing busy Amy needs is a charming new neighbor. Choreographer Richard Muir inherited the farmhouse next door -- and its scandalous story -- from his great-uncle. Town folklore claims the original owner was poisoned by his wife, who vanished after her 1925 murder trial. When Richard persuades Amy to help him clear the name of the woman his great-uncle loved, their research implicates the town's leading families ... even hers. Amy and Richard crack open the books to turn the page on the town's turbulent past.
