Publisher's Summary

To celebrate her bookstore’s anniversary, Tricia Miles hosts a book signing for bestselling author Zoë Carter. But the event takes a terrible turn when the author is found dead in the washroom. Before long, both police and reporters are demanding the real story. So far, the author’s obnoxious assistant/niece is the only suspect. And with a sheriff who provides more obstacles than answers, Tricia will have to take matters into her own hands - and read between the lines to solve this mystery.

    "Disappointed"

    This was my second Booktown mystery. I really enjoyed the first one so I thought I would give this one a try. I will have to say I was disappointed. The murderer was pretty easy to figure out and the characters (almost all of them) got very annoying throughout the book. The only one I liked at all by the end was Frannie. I thought the narrator did a great job but about 4 hours in I was ready for the whole town to be murdered. I do not think I will be continuing with this series.

    "ok"

    I liked the idea of the book - mysteries set in a mystery bookstore in a town famous for bookstores - well enough to overlook my dislike of the lead character in the first book and listen to the second. I still cannot warm to the woman and I find it difficult to even articulate why. She dates a reporter but gets annoyed if he does anything that remotely intersects with her life to get a story, even though the biggest story in town took place in her store. When presented a cake made by a professional pastry chef who baked it just for her as a kindness, rather than think what wonderful friends she has, she silently laments that no one understands how she doesn't consider cake to be comfort food. However she isn't overtly bitchy or whiny, and despite these irritations and many others, the mystery was interesting enough that I never considered not finishing the book. It just didn't leave me itching to get the next one in the series.

    "Ugh..."

    I bought this book because I enjoyed the first novel in the series. I liked it well enough and wanted to settle down with a good "cozy" mystery. However, this novel was just irritating. With the exception of a couple of characters, the whole town is a collection of catty, spiteful, vindictive and completely unpleasant individuals.

    I understand opposition. I even get that not everyone's personality is going to gel. People is people and all that. That said, it seems like the entire town is dead set against the main protagonist in one form or another. They never miss the opportunity for a snide remark (or two or three) to go unsaid.

    Could it be that the fact that she's so darn skinny that has them all riled up?

    While the book is padded with observations on how skinny the protagonist is and the fact that she eats like a bird, the level of cattiness displayed by some of the characters left me scratching my head. Honestly, why does the entire town seem to have such a beef with this woman and her ideas?

    Even the cops are against her like the very air she breathes has offended them personally. A couple of them feeling that way I could understand, but all of them? Even when her life is threatened, their reaction is pretty world-weary and apathetic.

    This will probably be the last book I purchase in this series.
