Publisher's Summary

It's November in Stoneham, New Hampshire, and time for the Chamber of Commerce elections. The long-standing Chamber president is being challenged by a former lover-Tricia's own sister, Angelica. Also throwing his hat in the ring is small business owner Stan Berry. Unfortunately, Stan isn't in the race for long. When Stan is found murdered, his political rivals become suspects.

Angelica is going to need more than a vote of confidence from her sister-she needs Tricia to clear her name so she can win the election. Tricia soon uncovers a ballot box full of lies and betrayals, and a chamber full of people who had grudges against the victim. But were they serious enough to lead to murder? It's up to Tricia to pull the lever on a killer before it's curtains for someone else.

    "THE BEST YET"

    The latest installment in the booktown mystery series has a great plot, well liked and developed characters, plot twists and a little romance. This is the best book of the series and I look forward to the next book.

    "Cozy Mystery"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love Karen White's recordings and I own as many as I can buy. So I gave this series a try based on a reviewers saying this story was the best. Oh boy, not my cup of tea. Amazon said on-off boyfriend Sheriff Baker. If you like a cozy mystery then this is for you. Yes, the author had a plot and a good who dunnit, but you must love a very simple small town and the characters that live there. It was almost like visiting a retirement home and that type of conversation.


    What could Lorna Barrett have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    well certainly more romance between our heroine and sheriff Baker. It was non existent. Author should just move into the mystery category, but men would complain that this was just too boring or sweet/tame. Sandra Brown writes a sexy mystery, LB take note.


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    Sheriff Baker what little there was of him. Such a waste of a potential character. Will was good as Karen does such a wonderful job on male voices. I purchased as I thought I would get a bad boy sheriff romance. No this was not the case at all. So disappointed.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Not the Killing Type?

    this had a moral to the story line. Sweet is ok but humor or sassy dialogue could have saved this story for me. The whole series is cozy and sweet, so a listeners must want that type of read. In the 90's, core romance was not the FSOG or tattoo listens we are now flooded with. This series maybe from that period, which I did not check before purchasing.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of this author, then Karen White does an absolutely fab job of bring each and every character to life. However, for me, this series is just to slow and tame even if the author has a good mystery outline.
