Crooked Lane. (Greer Hogan, Bk. 3). Feb. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9781639102365. $28.99. M
Greer Hogan has been the reference librarian at Raven Hall Manor for a year now, so she knows the people involved in the day-to-day functioning of the library and the community. Anita Hunzeker, the chair of the library board, is able to get things done, often by bullying others. But Anita is facing a roadblock in her plans to build a new, technologically advanced library. Many of the people in town love the old manor, and the Ravenscroft Trust that financially supports the library might have the final say. However, Anita has been researching the trust and the family. When she’s run off the road and killed, Greer is curious because no one in town seems to care about the victim. When a local professor is killed, Greer’s pokes into the connection between his work and Anita’s research. Maps, rumors, and stories all lead her back to the library, where secrets might be hiding in plain sight.
VERDICT Readers who enjoy the library and community connections in Victoria Gilbert’s “Blue Ridge Library” mysteries will want to try this mystery that hints at future answers to the ongoing story line of the murder of Greer’s husband.
