Publisher's Summary

Tricia Miles, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth, is in for a surprise when her ne'er-do-well father, John, comes to town - and promptly becomes a prime suspect in the murder of a woman with her own scandalous past. Even Tricia's faith in the old man is shaken when the Stoneham police break the news that her father is a known con man who has done jail time. But what about best-selling thriller author Steven Richardson? Is it a coincidence that he arrived for a book signing just before the crime or that the victim was found with a signed copy of his latest best seller? From merlot to murder, Tricia is determined to clear the family name before another body shows up and ruins Stoneham's first - and highly anticipated - wine and jazz festival.

    "The End"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Mission impossible. In the beginning books the parents were wealthy and in this one the father is a crazy bum, gallivanting around the country leaving debt/mayhem. The characters (parents) along the original story line are wealthy, conservative and self centered. Now even that has become too unrealistic to even begin to enjoy the book.


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

    I've given up on this writer. This was the one series that she writes I enjoyed. Now it too has became unbearable.


    What aspect of Karen White’s performance would you have changed?

    The poor woman could only do so much with this tripe!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Just Clause?

    The characters of the book would have remained some what believable. I would have advised the writer to throw the whole thing out and start over.


    Any additional comments?

    The reason for the title is, this is the last book by Lorna Barrett I will purchase. I strongly do not care to continue wasting money on poor story lines and hair brain poorly written books.

    "Not even close to believable."

    "The family dynamic!"

    This was probably the best book of the series for me. For one, the family dynamics in this book bring a lot of things full circle. I have loved to see and understand more of why Trisha is how she is. The mystery itself wasn't really the highlight of this book. It didn't really make sense as much as it was sort of thrown together to close the plot. So if you're looking for a good sense mystery this won't fit the bill. But if you are an avid lover of this series then this book definitely will delight. I can't wait for the next book! In fact, I hope there is one ....

    "Let down"

    I was so excited when I received the email that there was another book. I kept waiting and waiting for a story line. This was a let down after enjoying the others so much.
