Has a curse fallen on the small town of Taylorsford, Virginia? After a young woman goes missing during a spring bonfire, library director Amy Webber must wade through the web of lies only to find a truth that she may not want to untangle.

Spring has sprung in quaint Taylorsford, Virginia, and the mayor has revived the town’s long-defunct May Day celebration to boost tourism. As part of the festivities, library director Amy Webber is helping to organize a research project and presentation by a local folklore expert. All seems well at first—but spring takes on a sudden chill when a university student inexplicably vanishes during a bonfire.

The local police cast a wide net to find the missing woman, but in a shocking turn of events, Amy’s swoon-worthy neighbor Richard Muir becomes a person of interest in the case. Not only is Richard the woman’s dance instructor, he also doesn’t have an alibi for the night the student vanished—or at least not one he’ll divulge, even to Amy.

When the missing student is finally discovered lost in the mountains, with no memory of recent events—and a dead body lying nearby—an already disturbing mystery takes on a sinister new hue. Blessed with her innate curiosity and a librarian’s gift for research, Amy may be the only one who can learn the truth in Past Due for Murder, Victoria Gilbert’s third charming Blue Ridge Library mystery.

About  the Author

Raised in a historic small town in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Victoria Gilbert turned her early obsession with books into a dual career as an author and librarian.

Victoria’s first cozy mystery series, the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series, garnered her a three-book deal with Crooked Lane Books, which has since been expanded to five books. The first two books in the series have been optioned by Sony Pictures Television, and the first three were or will be produced in audiobook by Tantor Media.

Victoria also just inked a 2-book deal with Crooked Lane for a new cozy series, the Booklovers B & B series, set in historic Beaufort, NC.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blue Ridge Library Mysteries #3

Library Director Amy Webber is one determined heroine. Like fools who tread where angels fear to go, Amy perseveres even in the face of danger; and danger never scares her off. In the past year, she has faced multiple killers and much personal danger, but that never stops her. This is a heroine to admire! At the moment, her relationship with beloved neighbor Richard appears to be a little rocky, or at least he is being secretive. The composer who once badly broke her heart with his controlling ways and psychological abuse is back in the area, complete with new lady (the one in the wings when he was still seeing Amy). Richard's parents are coming to visit (oh, dear); and now a Clarion University student has gone missing in the mountains. Another professor at Clarion, a noted folklorist, is stirring up trouble about the composer and about an elderly mountain denizen of a long-established area family. Then troublemaking turns to death, and Amy is caught up in the thick of both multiple mysteries and danger.

Author Victoria Gilbert keeps readers engrossed and turning those pages in the BLUE RIDGE LIBRARY MYSTERIES.
