A Death Long Overdue by Eva Gates

Bertie James along with fellow librarians are celebrating a 40th anniversary reunion. What better place to have it than in their old haunt - the Outer Banks Library and her friend Lucy has organised an exhibition of artifacts from libraries past for everyone to see and reminisce. What turns from a lively collection of old friends, turns into a murder investigation when one of their number gets murdered in the adjoining marsh and all of them become suspects. The story goes back decades linking one of their own with a missing diamond necklace and a young man who also went missing at the same time. Now the hunt is on for someone who has murdered twice and also to find the famed necklace. A small town setting, a mystery murder with a bunch of much older women as suspects this was a fun read.

I love a small town setting and older characters so I'm adding this title to my TBR list. Thanks!
