In 1934, the body of a beautiful, but poor young woman was found alongside a riverbank near The Depot. Beaten to a pulp, only recognizable by a tattoo on her ankle, and yet, days after the discovery, the story all but disappears.

Eighty years later, locals claim The Depot is haunted. But in all the years homicide detective Mark Waters has visited the historic 1800s train station turned restaurant, he's never seen proof. Until now.

As he sifts through evidence of a supposed suicide by train, he learns a murder that took place eighty years ago may directly affect his case.

Six months after the strange occurrences at The Depot, there's another murder. This time, The Library holds secrets of several murders, and the dead won't rest until the murderer checks out too.

Note: The Library (Where Life Checks Out) is a 50k-word follow-up novel to The Depot (When Life and Death Cross Tracks), which is included in this special edition so readers who haven't read The Depot won't miss anything.

About the Author

Carmen DeSousa's stories overflow with romance, mystery, a hint of paranormal sometimes and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without an emotional event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic, and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope. Although "The Library (Where Life Checks Out)" clearly includes a supernatural edge, the paranormal dances on the edge of make believe, in a genre referred to as magical realism. Carmen's hope is that as you read "The Library," you'll wonder, "Hmmm...what if?"

Mysteries spanning generations + a Pinch of Paranormal + Romance = Entertaining Read The Prequel, The Pit Stop: This Stop Could Be Life or Death, which hooked me, led me to this title. I am glad that it did because it provided hours of entertainment. I would really like to see the author add more stories to create a series. The narrator did a decent job with both male and female voices. I appreciate the fact that she wasn't over dramatic and that she didn't go overboard when trying to do a foreign accent. She brought the characters to life. I received a free copy of the audio-book version of this publication from the narrator, Michelle Babb in exchange for an honest review.
