Shelved Under Murder: 10/16/19
Shelved Under Murder by Victoria Gilbert is the second of the Blue Ridge Library mystery series. While the library is preparing for the annual Heritage Festival, library director Amy Webber finds the body of a local artist in her studio, killed with her own pallet knife.
Mysteries involving dead artists, especially struggling ones, always brings to mind forgery plots. This novel doesn't disappoint. Sure enough, there's forgery afoot, missing paintings looted during WWII suddenly resurfacing, and an old mystery involving Amy's father.
I don't know if every book in this series will include a modern day and a cold case, but I've enjoyed the first two that have used this plot device.
The third book in the series is Past Due for Murder which came out in February of 2019.
