|Summary, etc.:||"A devoted dad is as precious as diamonds, but Carrie Singleton wouldn't know since her dad Jim's been on the lam most of her life. In an unusual family reunion, she finds Jim breaking into her cottage in the middle of the night. The fun really starts when he begs her to help him recover his half of a twenty-million-dollar gem heist he pulled off with the local jeweler, Benton Parr. When she refuses, Jim takes off again. Carrie finds her father again behind bars for the recent murder of Benton Parr. Who made the connection? Unbeknownst to her, Carrie's boyfriend Dylan, an insurance investigator, has been searching for the gems. Determined to find the jewels herself, she starts examining every facet of Parr's life. She turns up a treasure trove of suspects, one of whom bashes her on the head as she's searching the victim's country cabin. Retreating to the quiet confines of the library where she works, Carrie watches as Smokey Joe, the resident cat, paws at a hole in the wall. Is he after the library's ghost Evelyn, or something shinier?" -- publisher.|

Carrie Singleton, employed at the public library, is stunned when her father, Jim, a charming career criminal, arrives in Clover Ridge, Connecticut, in search of $20 million in stolen gems, having been double-crossed by his partner, local jeweler Benton Parr. Disappointed by her father since childhood, Carrie is reluctant to let him into her life again and in no way supports his lifestyle. When Parr is found murdered with Jim running from the shop, Carrie investigates to clear her father, determined to find the gems herself and return them to their rightful owner. However, Carrie is only one of many hunting for the missing stones, including her insurance-investigator boyfriend, Dylan, whom she begins to believe has used her to get to her father. The library frame, plot twists, a library cat, a ghost (former library aide Evelyn), a romance, and, of course, the principled Carrie in the lead make this cozy, set during the December holiday season, a delight. Readers may also enjoy Nancy Atherton and Carolyn Haines, whose books also include helpful, opinionated ghosts. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
