Praise for Death Overdue
"A spirited cozy series with two plucky and engaging protagonists and a well-drawn, small town library setting. Readers of Miranda James, Jenn McKinlay, Carolyn Hart, Nancy Atherton, and Carolyn Haines will be delighted with this paranormal debut."
--Library Journal starred review, Pick of the Month
"A 'spirited' start to a fun new mystery series that kept
me guessing to the end. Ghosts, libraries, and cats--all my
favorite cozy things fill the pages of Death
--Diane A. S. Stuckart, New York Times bestselling author of the Black Cat Bookshop mysteries (written as Ali Brandon) "Brook weaves together a spunky protagonist, a quaint setting, and a ghost with a mind of her own to create a book that cozy readers will be dying to check out."
--Lucy Arlington, New York Times bestselling author of the Novel Idea mysteries "Books and ghosts...what could be more fun! Add two plucky librarians (one who just happens to be dead), throw in a baffling murder, and you've got the perfect combination that keeps readers turning pages."
--Kylie Logan, national bestselling author of Gone with the Twins "A cozy town, a spunky heroine and a mystery that grabs you from page one. Death Overdue is a delight!"
--Peg Cochran, national bestselling author of Dead and Berried" Whimsical...Fans of Jenn McKinlay will enjoy this series. And never fear: there is a cat."
--Publishers Weekly "From the first page to last, I was entranced by the characters and setting, and highly recommend it to all mystery lovers--especially if you have a penchant for libraries and ghosts!"
