Library Lockdown Book Description:
With a few extra hours a week on her hands, Loretta Sweet decides to volunteer at Misery, Mississippi’s small library.
Just days after being hired, the librarian, Iris Huggins, asks Loretta to run outside and empty the book return bin. Loretta has almost finished retrieving all of the books when she discovers one stuck in the far corner. She quickly realizes that not only is the book stuck in the back, but it’s also covered with a sticky substance that appears to be blood!
Things go from bad to worse when police arrive on scene and discover there’s more than just a suspicious library book…there has also been a murder. With the library in “lockdown” and the town in an uproar, it soon becomes apparent that Loretta was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Someone is determined to frame Loretta for the murder, but who…and why?
