As the owner of Stoneham, New Hampshire's, mystery bookstore Haven't Got a Clue, Tricia Miles can figure out whodunit in the latest best seller long before she gets to the last page. But when her friend is killed in a freak accident, Tricia must use her sleuthing skills to solve a murder mystery that promises to be much more sinister than the books on her shelves.
Listen to another spine-tingling Booktown Mystery.

I have read all of her books, this one is just as good as all the rest. Keeps you guessing until the end whodunit. Would recommend.
A lover of cozy mysteries, contemporary romance and getting lost in the world of audiobooks
If I had $1 for every time the book said "Tricia frowned," I could buy this book 3 times over. Otherwise this was my favorite in the series, the characters are much more like able than they have been in previous books. The writing is good & it's an enjoyable cozy mystery!
Tricia Miles is perhaps one of the most irritatingly entitled characters I have ever run across. She seems to be bitter about everything, grateful about nothing in her truly charmed existence. 'Judgemental' should be her middle name. With all that said, I continue to listen to this series because it generally ticks all the boxes for me. Although every time Tricia frowns again, or is sad she's ordered the same salad again, or is disappointed in someone's behavior again, or mentions how SHE was the unloved, unwanted sister, again ... or feels like everyone owes her an explanation for something that's absolutely none of her business ... again ... I have to take a deep breath and just power through the story. Now I just count every time I want to slap her ... then move on to the next book hoping she's going to change her insufferable attitude.
it will not stop me from reading the next book. a few storey lines I want to find the ending too. not bad, just seems diffrent.
I mostly listen to books while exercising, which pretty much explains all of the action/thrillers on my list.
Maybe I don't really like cozy mysteries....But I love Lousie Penny. And a few others. So I bought this one because it is about New England and I do business in a fairly small New England city (Manchester, N.H.). But I couldn't get more than about half an hour into it. Too many characters that I couldn't keep straight and couldn't really relate to. I kept waiting for there to be one that I would like so I could keep going. But no luck.
