In McKinlay’s mystery novel, Lindsey Norris is enjoying her second year as the library director in Briar Creek, Connecticut. She is settling into the town and happily dating tour boat captain Mike Sullivan. When a salvage company pulls into town to dig up some alleged treasure supposedly buried on Pirate Island some three hundred years ago, the locals are torn between protecting the island and making a splash in the economy. But when the local tourism director who hired the company is found murdered, her neighbor Charlie becomes the prime suspect. To help him, Lindsay resorts to her strengths and begins digging through history to find a killer before he can strike again.

An intelligent, fun, and lively yarn and a great addition to the A Library Lover’s Mystery series. ( )

The islands off the coast of Briar Creek are always interesting, but when a map supposedly belonging to Captain Kidd is linked to one of them the whole town is excited, though not always in a happy way. Some of the conservationists are up in arms at the thought of what might be done on the island. As for Lindsay, well as a former archivist, she is just facinated by the map. One of the mayor's assistants, Trudi, is promoting this as an excellent opportunity to increase tourism. But when Trudi turns up dead on the island, and the map is missing, Lindsay becomes involved once again in trying to solve a mystery.

I really like this series. Lindsay and the other characters are lots of fun. They mysteries are good. I really like the small town coastal setting. In this one we have a romantic complication in the form of Lindsay's ex-fiance, who wants her back. Sully is still my guy though and I hope this situation is resolved in the next book. Thankfully, that one is already out. ( )

This is the third book in the A Library Lover's Mystery series. Another exciting story from Jenn McKinlay.

The Riordan Salvage company wants to search Ruby Island, off the coast of Briar Creek, for the reputed buried treasure of Captain Kidd. This has the community in an uproar on both sides. Trudi Hargrave and Milton Duffy, are just two, who are at odds over this and are having a heated discussion at the library over this. In addition to this, John, Lindsey's former boyfriend, has shown up in Briar Creek for an extended visit.

Sully and Lindsey are taking some personal items out to Charlie who is working for salvage company and is staying on the island to guard against scavengers. As soon as they are ashore, Charlie informs them that he has discovered a body in a pit. The body turns out to be Trudi and what with her heated arguments with Milton, he becomes a prime suspect.

Lindsey is sure that Milton is in no way involved and it busy trying to the murderer. But she also must make time to impress upon John that there is no future for them as a couple. Needless to say, Sully is having problems dealing with John's sudden appearance.

All of our friends from the Crafternoon Book Group book are here to help Lindsey. Especially, Beth, who does a wonderful job as being a pirate.

Looking forward to the next book and see what Lindsey and Sully might be up to. ( )

I enjoyed this latest installment in the series! Lindsey, the main character, is the director of a library in a small town in Maine. She's kinda snoopy when it comes to the mystery plot lines in this series, but the police chief wasn't fussy about that in this book.

I enjoyed the treasure hunt thread--the map, the mention of [b:Treasure Island|295|Treasure Island|Robert Louis Stevenson|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1312023209s/295.jpg|3077988], etc., in this book. I'm getting tired of Ms. Cole's attitude, though, or maybe I'm getting tired of Lindsey not dealing with her snide remarks throughout the series. ( )

What could be more fun than a treasure hunt? The citizens of Briar Creek are leery when a Treasure Hunter looking for Captain Kidd's lost loot come to their town and start dredging on the haunted island, but things get even scarier when one of their own residents is found dead at the site of the digging. Lindsey and Sully get caught in the foray when they try to help a friend. ( )
