Overdue or Die (A Haunted Library Mystery)

We rated this book:


After Carrie’s fiancé discovers a forgery in their friend’s collection, this sets off a chain of events that makes planning a wedding even more complicated. It doesn’t help that she’s also dealing with her great uncle’s heart attack and worrying about what Martha Mallory’s death has to do with the art gallery. Who would want Martha dead and why? The deeper Carrie digs, the more certain is that she needs to act quickly to uncover the truth before she’s next on the list.

The story begins with Great-Uncle Bosco’s heart attack, which adds more weight on her shoulders right off the bat and has her shaken going into the mystery. Carrie and Dylan’s wedding preparations balance the murder investigation, which gives the story some levity and lighthearted moments. At the heart of the mystery is a connection to art forgery, which creates threads to the gallery and to Dylan’s job, weaving everything together and eventually leading toward a satisfying conclusion. Murder ups the stakes and puts Carrie in the crosshairs of a killer which helps to build suspense, putting her in more trouble.

Overdue or Die is a charming mystery that blends art forgery, wedding planning, and murder to create the right amount of chaos and fun.
