Bookplate Special

Tricia Miles, owner of Haven’t a Clue mystery bookstore, is still settling into Stoneham, New Hampshire, the kind of town where everybody knows your name—and where everyone’s quick to lend a hand, even when murder is afoot . . . The kinder folks of Stoneham might call Pammy Fredericks a free spirit. The less kind, a freeloading thief. Tricia has put up—and put up with—her uninvited college roommate for weeks. In return, Pammy, has stolen $100, among other things. But the day she’s kicked out, Pammy’s found dead in a dumpster, leaving loads of questions unanswered. Like what was she foraging for? Did her killer want it too? To piece the case together, Tricia will have to dive in head-first.…

The Review

This was a tricky one, I did not see who the culprit was until it was revealed, it was really sprung on the reader. I really enjoy this series because it all unravels in your mind with the unravelling on the page. I thought I had it figured out, but boy was I wrong!! I love that about these books! I am glad though that things are over between Tricia and Russ, because he really is a douche. Don't get me started on the delicious Captain Baker...

You actually start to feel sorry for Tricia - I mean how long can you take it being the one to find a corpse? It really is crazy, but I suppose that provides her with greater motivation for wanting to see justice served... Much like the rest of the series, this book is very well written.

  1. So glad to hear you enjoyed it. Hope you'll give the newer books in the series (Chapter & Hearse and Sentenced to Death) a try. (And my first Victoria Square book (written under my Lorraine Bartlett name) A Crafty Killing.
