She Stopped for Death by Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli

Friday I finished She Stopped for Death by Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli. This is the second in the Little Library series but the first I have read by Elizabeth and it is released today.  I have my own tiny library, which I will need to launch again as I just moved so I loved the idea of the series. This was a complex mystery and was more of a true psychological mystery then a cozy. It was written very well and had a complex mystery as well as back story. It was very interesting and I enjoyed the idea of a town without a library, being made more cozy by the addition of Little Libraries just like in the story.
Jenny Weston and her mother, Dora, have been receiving strange midnight visits. Bear Falls's own elusive and highly secretive poet, Emily Sutton, has lived her life cloistered away with her sister in a house at the edge of Pewee Swamp. But now, Emily's started leaving scraps of poetry in Dora's Little Library, and Dora makes it her mission to befriend the sheltered woman.Meanwhile Zoe Zola, almost famous author, Little Person, and the Weston's quirky next-door neighbor, is hard at work on a new book, this one about the inner life of Emily Dickinson. And once again, Zoe's literary work starts making uncanny connections with the events in her own world as Emily Sutton reemerges into society. But Zoe begins to suspect things aren't anywhere near normal at Emily's swamp house or in the lives of the people she claims have abandoned her...until looking further into the poet's half-truths leads Zoe and Jenny to a horrible murder.The chaos surrounding the ensuing investigation grows even more hectic with Emily’s increasingly erratic behavior, the arrival of a young woman searching for her missing poet uncle, and yet another betrayal in Jenny's love life. And only poetry can set the truth free in Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli's charming second Little Library mystery, She Stopped for Death.
